Save to favouritesPrintMailGalle Fort HotelGalle Fort is a spellbinding mixture of Dutch, British and Sri Lankan history and architecture, with fewer than 200 homes inside its 17th-century ramparts. Now one of these is a hotel - and what a hotel it is. Antique four-poster beds, wooden shutters, wide verandas and a colonnaded court evoke its former life as a gem merchant's mansion. Today there's also a boutique pool, a choice of yoga and beauty treatments, and 11 [r:SL015:bedrooms and suites] which mix contemporary décor with quirky nods to the building's past. The hotel also has a café-restaurant, where new arrivals can get their bearings over a cocktail, beneath high ceilings and grand archways. For dinner, expect Chinese-Thai [eating:SL015:cuisine], friendly, relaxed service and candle-lit tables. Ask for advice about how to navigate the fort next morning or perhaps join one of the hotel's tours. Finish the day with a sunset meander along the historic fort walls.
