In the heart of the old Galle Fort

A superbly situated spot to rest your head in a lovingly restored mansion, with creative cuisine and a UNESCO Cultural Heritage status.

Dating back to when the Dutch had a presence in Galle, this glorious mansion has been passed through many hands over the years, yet has managed to retain its original magical essence. Lovingly restored in 2003 to its former glory, Galle Fort Hotel fuses a cultural past with an artistic present, and the original doors and windows have earned the hotel a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Conservation Award of Distinction.

The 14 suites combine a dash of colonial luxury with the comforts and elegance of contemporary living, and the small pool is good for a dip as you relax and enjoy your needed down time. With a friendly and dedicated team, this hotel runs like a well-oiled machine, and dining at the Galle Fort Hotel is an unforgettable experience. Produce is fresh all year round, and you can try uniquely created dishes inspired by the Spice Route Trade.

Its central location makes Galle Fort Hotel one of the best places to stay to experience Galle and its eclectic culture and history.

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
