Rooms and Suites
Fifteen luxuriously appointed Bazaar and Banyan bedrooms radiate off a peaceful flagstone – tiled courtyard shaded by an age-old mango tree, quietly cosseting guests with king-sized four-poster Balinese beds, air conditioning, cable televisions, artisanal coffee machines and ensuite shower rooms. The three Upper Suites are more decadent chambers which also have lounge areas, dressing rooms, freestanding bathtubs and fort-view terraces. Families could opt for interconnecting Banyan or Bazaar Bedrooms or the split level Upper Family Suite.
Food & Beverage
The Church Street Social is Galle Fort’s most vibrant wining and dining venue, attracting both in-house guests and walk-ins with a convivial, buzzy vibe. The contemporary design-led setting, infused with classic twists to reflect the history of the locale and its Arabic influencers, is reflected in our gourmet dishes, which feature elements of traditional Moroccan, Turkish and Middle Eastern cuisine. Their menus include tapas for savouring dishes sociably amongst friends, and rustic family-style sharing platters of quality imported cold meats, cheese, homemade pickles, pâtés and dips. Asian fusion flavours used for fresh fish and modern versions of Sri Lanka’s traditional cuisine also feature highly, including black pork curry and lagoon crab salad.
Escape Galle’s hustle and bustle at our indulgent Z Spa where peace reigns and luxurious, restful and revitalising treatments await. Therapies have been conceived and designed to help guests unwind. The spa has three air-conditioned single treatment rooms quietly tucked to the back of the hotel, two of which have steam showers in their bathrooms.
Galle Fort’s quaint streets offer some of the island’s most rewarding urban strolls, not only for the historic buildings that flank the fort’s cobbled streets but the little boutiques, cafes and gelaterias that lie in wait. The coral and limestone ramparts are a hive of activity, particularly towards the day’s end when impromptu cricket games break out and people from all walks of life converge on the western ramparts to watch an Indian Ocean sunset. Galle also offers very easy access to stunning local beaches for swimming, diving and surfing.
The Church Street Social is a popular local venue for international all day dining (and it’s air-conditioned too!). Open to non-guests as well (no bookings required)
