Photo of The Sun House

“This charmingly restored merchant's house has great hillside views. Exquisite bedrooms and suites in all-white-ethereality are the piece de resistance for any romantic. An intimate atmosphere with communal dining and lovely gardens. A hip hotel, with many accolades, ideal for completely unwinding.”

Hotel Review

This charming small hotel, built for a Scottish spice merchant in the 1860s, is within comfortable walking distance of Galle Fort. It has seven bedrooms including the large, elegant first floor Cinnamon Suite. There is a fun and bustling bar for great cocktails and salads, and the restaurant offers seriously good Sri Lankan food. The Sun House, sister hotel to the Dutch House, is popular so you may need to book for dinner. The delightful frangipani gardens house a good swimming pool, and the mango gardens offer a wonderful view of Galle harbour.
