About this listing

The Home

Galle Fort Villa is a gorgeous colonial villa that harkens back to days gone by. The three bedroom boutique property has been recently updated, renovated and lies within the walls of historic Galle Fort.

Besides being a first class accommodation, the villa’s location makes an excellent platform to explore Southern Sri Lanka with its beautiful beaches, sporting venues, exciting safari parks and even the Fort itself.
This elegant three-bedroom terraced villa was built in the 17th century and reflects the history charm and character of its colonial past. While many of the records were lost, Galle Fort Villa was said to be the home of a wealthy merchant of the Dutch East India Company.

Today, the villa has been meticulously renovated while preserving much of its original structure and comfortable appeal. The home has lost none of its romantic, colonial feeling and takes guests back to a time when life took on a slower, more considered pace. Upon entering the home, guests will be welcomed by the vault like, 30-foot high ceilings with arches and columns. The villa’s lush, tropical courtyard was maintained to offer a private oasis in the middle of the city.

Galle Fort Villa is spacious, airy and filled with natural light from its large floor to ceiling windows and skylights. Its bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully appointed with modern amenities. There is also a lofted TV/family room.

Galle Fort Villa comfortably accommodates a party of 6.

The villa is supplied with two helpful local staff that will be responsible for housekeeping and will go out of their way to make the villa’s guests stay comfortable and memorable. They will, on request, prepare and serve continental breakfast and mouth watering Sri Lankan cuisine. Extra charges apply for all meals except continental breakfast.

Staying here on Lighthouse Street you will be part of a world where time has seemingly stood still. Galle Fort Villa’s living and dining spaces located on the ground floor boast a 30-foot exposed timber ceiling, large windows and antique Dutch period furniture. Meals are served at the 8-10 seat dining table or out on the terrace. Multiple ceiling fans cool the space.

The master suite is located upstairs with a spacious ensuite bathroom. Its polished Mahogany floors and high exposed timber ceilings gives a luxurious Colonial feel to the room. The large windows open out to a balcony with refreshing garden views. The main part of the bedroom is fully air conditioned. The master suite is tastefully furnished with an antique four-poster bed and Dutch period bedroom furniture. Luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen completes the decor.

Second Bedroom

Adjacent to, and serving both downstairs bedrooms is a well-appointed bathroom.
