Traditional Sri Lanka meets ultra-modern interior design at The Fortress, styled after Galle's historic Dutch fort. Enclosed within pretty walled gardens overlooking the Indian Ocean, this stylish resort offers an Ayurvedic-inspired Lime spa, excellent regional and international cuisine and a fascinating wine cellar and restaurant, all within steps of the beach. Here you will find creative decor, with vibrantly coloured furniture and a glass-walled wine cellar melding with carefully designed lighting and vivid local art. Lounge in your daybed and admire the beautiful views of either the garden or the ocean from your room. Alternatively, spend time relaxing by the pool and fully absorb the laid-back atmosphere of this peaceful retreat. Stroll through the grounds to the beach and watch local stilt fishermen making their daily catch. Visit the historic Galle Fort or head further afield to Yala National Park to spot wild elephants, leopards and exotic birds. Return for a soothing massage in the spa. The Fortress is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
