Dutch House Galle,


Price From : US $ 445.00


This nineteenth-century mansion, formerly an orphanage for boys, has been beautifully restored into an exquisite property that makes an elegant and tranquil retreat. Four spacious suites, nicely arranged in a horseshoe formation, are equipped with antique four-poster beds, overhead fans, ensuite bathrooms and a rich array of carefully chosen tables, wardrobes and bookshelves. Using brushed woods, natural colours, clever lighting and a number of nice little touches, the design evokes a pervasive mood of stillness and warmth which is both romantic and relaxing.


The four air-conditioned suites combine grandeur with indulgent luxury. Each of the suites has a bedroom furnished with a king-sized antique four-poster bed with canopied mosquito netting, a cosy lounging area with a sofa, writing desk and library, and ensuite bathroom with a showers and Victorian bathtub. Silk drapes cascade from the ceiling, luxurious cushions and pillows, interesting design accents and paintings all add to the richness of each suite. The suites open out to views over the croquet lawn or a private garden.

This elegant and charming suite is dressed in blue silk and consists of a bedroom with king-sized four-poster bed, lounging area and an ensuite bathroom with bath and shower.

The Yellow Room: Opening onto the central living area and front veranda, this suite is highlighted with warm yellow silk drapes, cushions and covers. The inviting king-sized four-poster bed is canopied with mosquito netting and the lounge area is ideal for relaxing. The stylish ensuite bathroom has a bath and shower.

The V.O.C: Named after the Dutch East India Company, this exquisite suite opens onto the central courtyard and the large veranda that skirts around, with views across the croquet lawn. Warm and luxurious, this suite has an ensuite bathroom with his and her sinks, bath and shower.

The Ball Room: The grand Ball Room is fit for royalty. Opening out to the manicured lawn and swimming pool on one side and the veranda and central courtyard on the other, this suite is spacious and airy. Draped in silk and infused with colours of olive green, brick red, and burnt yellow, this exquisite suite is an experience in itself. A large king-sized four-poster bed, antique chests and cabinets, paintings and tapestries, and a dramatic candelabra adorn this room adding charm and character.
