Galle Fort is a spellbinding mixture of Dutch, British and Sri Lankan history and architecture, with fewer than 200 homes inside its 17th-century ramparts. One of these is the Galle Fort Hotel and if a sense of romanticism, tranquility and heritage stirs your imagination and if the idea of staying in a former gem merchants mansion evokes a way of life 400 years ago, you will experience it here.”
