Around and About

The Galle Fort enjoys a romantic spot on the bay of Galle luxuriating in a pastiche of Portuguese, Dutch and Birtish architecture. Ramble through the magic of old and bask in the beauty of a quaint clock tower, a three and half century old church, a lighthouse where once lights flashed like stars of good hope, old-world houses and a tussie-mussie of other colonial landmarks.

You are in an old-world boutique hotel in an old town where time stands still. Bastions and ramparts loom about you and slowly spring up into a Colonial Fort. In the quiet of the star-sown night you can almost hear a horse galloping – the Portuguese soldiers are home… Hurrah! You are on vacation – in the Galle Fort
