We've been back at work now for about five weeks and all I can think about is the beautiful house at 32 Middle Street, Galle. The rustic front verandah with its wooden benches and palm trees, the pristine pool surrounded by tropical plants and trees. The spacious lounge and dining room, complete with leather chairs, mood lighting and shuttered doors. Bedrooms with gorgeous heavy wooden furniture, four poster beds and mosquito nets, air-conditioning for the hot nights and airy brushed concrete bathrooms. I could go on!
Thanks so much to Kusal, our host, who made our stay so enjoyable. Kusal has been a chef for 15 years and cooked us a Sri Lankan feast on our final night. We even got a detailed cooking class as part of the package.
Located right in the middle of the fort, 32 Middle Street is paradise. A quiet refuge in the busy heat of the colonial fort town.
Right now, I'm planning my return to 32 Middle Street. We won't be the only ones. Many of the previous visitors have returned again and again. We will be back. Soon.
Agree with the last reviewer. A lovely oasis in the middle of Galle Fort. Classy and beautifully decorated. Stunning courtyard and friendly and helpful staff. Don't be fooled by the unloved look of the building outside when you approach, as soon as you get inside everything is perfect. If you are afraid of heights you won't like two of the bedrooms though as you need to climb a narrow set of spiral stairs to get into bed.
