The bijou roof terrace affords romantic sunset views over the Fort skyline & Indian Ocean on the horizon. The Villa is strategically located in the heart of the historic Galle Fort, providing convenient access to all the sights that this UNESCO Heritage Site has to offer. Once through the front section of the house, you enter the large, bright courtyard – a space for sunbathing, alfresco dining and refreshing swims in the exquisite pool.

The upper floor bedrooms open out to a balcony that skirts around and has views across the clay tiled roofs of Galle Fort as well as the garden and swimming pool below. These en-suite bedrooms come complete with soft white linen sheets, fitted mosquito nets, a/c, overhead fans, and iPod dock.
