Stay in the heart of the old town

One of Galle’s original buildings in the historic fort area, Fort Printers is a stylish and friendly stay on Sri Lanka's popular south coast

Once used as a collage, and then a printing house, this 18th century mansion is now a stylish and elegant boutique hotel in the old fort town of Galle. It's a great example of the colonial architectural style of this World Heritage Site, and still retains many of its original features.

With friendly and personal service, and the ambience of a private villa, this property has airy 13 suites, some of which look out over the rooftops, a small pool, and an excellent restaurant specialising in fresh seafood, Mediterranean-inspired dishes as well as traditional Sri Lankan cuisine.

Centrally located in town, Fort Printers makes an ideal base for exploring Galle and the surrounding area. If you really fancy getting into the spirit, you might like the staff to take you for a spin in their 1945 Morris Minor.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
