A hotel fashioned in the style of a powerful fortress. Rising next to the beach, the resort’s walls enclose verdant gardens and water features, a spa featuring Ayurvedic treatments, a freeflow swimming pool, wine cellar, restaurants, boutiques and exquisitely appointed rooms, lofts and residences.
The resort’s architecture forges historic Dutch and Portuguese styles with the motifs of Sri Lanka. Galle’s most innovative resort experience.
