“Indian Ocean views from private indoor pool”
Reviewed 15 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The upstairs window looks over the rampart of the Galle fort, so the views from dawn until sunset are amazing. Sea breezes are very much a part of the stay in this place.

During our stay the weather was hot, so we made use of private upstairs indoor pool with views of the ocean. This and the high speed wireless internet were highlights for our preteen daughter.

The house is recently renovated, and very clean. Big bedrooms, all the amenities of a five star hotel. No complaints.

Location is ideal, inside the fort, steps away from the restaurants, shops, and sights of the Galle Fort.

“Fantastic place !”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

A two storey house, more like a loft in the fort but with great confort and style. Beautiful bedrooms with private bathroom, air-con + fans, big comfortable beds. Once upstairs, the only thing you have to do is enjoy the sun set over the ramparts, take a dip in the inside pool and enjoy your drink...
Any thing you need, the staff will do their best to make sure you get it.
A place where to stay with your lover, friends or family :)

“we felt like being at anchor along the ramparts of Galle Fort”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What a wonderful and breezy stay in Galle Fort. The house is stunning and felt designed like a yacht, with the view towards the sea above the rampart and the constant breeze so welcomed in the Fort that can be otherwise so hot. Wonderful and dedicated staff to cater to all our needs and some excellent dishes occasionally cooked for us. We entertained friends who were staying in the area and had an incredible sensation of being anchored by the ramparts, watching sunset and enjoying the quiet of the night after a dip in the "suspended" pool. Really cool!
