Day 1

Colombo Hotel to Galle Hotel

Duration2 Hours

Fortaleza Galle

Built by a Dutch Merchant to store spices more than 300 years ago, this warehouse is now home to a 4 Roomed boutique hotel with a Restaurant & Bar. Although its address is no. 9 Church Cross Street, the Lighthouse Street entrance is easier to find. It retains most of its original infrastructure including the exposed coral walls and high ceilings, but our labour of love has transformed every nook and cranny of this place into a stylish and homely boutique hotel with some of the most memorable rooms in Galle. This is also where you'll find the Fortazela Restaurant. The sunken in courtyard with both indoor and outdoor areas can accommodate up to fifty or sixty people and can be reserved for private functions. However the space has its cosy corners for people who are looking for a more intimate scene.
