I was traveling to Colombo alone for work and wanted to see something more of Sri Lanka the weekend before my meetings. A friend suggested Galle and I began my hunt on Trip Advisor. After reading reviews I rang up Galle Fort Hotel. Their manager, an incredibly knowledgeable with a locals insight gave me loads of advice of what to see and do on my weekend.
I could not have been more pleased with my weekend in Galle, and much of this was due to his hotel and great recommendations. Each one spot on.
Galle Fort itself is truly a special find, with this hotel right in the middle of the unesco Fort. Incredible atmosphere. A weekend in 1800 colonial sri lanka, with all the modern conveniences. And an excellent breakfast get your day started right.
