Galle Fort

Price From : US $ 140.00


'Landesi', meaning Dutch in Sinhalese, is an apt name for this Galle Fort villa which is designed along the lines of a Dutch period mansion with arched doorways and verandahs that open out to enclosed private gardens, and a high timber roof allowing for much ventilation within. This spacious private villa and the enclosed gardens occupy an area of about 650 sq. metres and is one of the larger Fort villas. The ground floor consists of the living and dining areas and the Master bedroom – all opening out to the rear garden. An ornate wooden staircase leads to the second floor with additional living space and two-bedrooms opening out to a balcony that skirts around with views across the clay tiled roofs of Galle Fort. Interiors are comfortably furnished with Dutch period antiques, plush sofas, colourful soft furnishings and local art. Fortaleza Landesi can be booked by the room or as a whole villa and can accommodate up to six guests. The villa welcomes children over the age of 12 years.


The Master bedroom has a king-size four-poster bed and opens out to a broad verandah and the gardens beyond. Two bedrooms on the upper floor have twin or king-size four-poster beds and a broad balcony. In-room facilities include a/c, overhead fans, wifi and ensuite bathrooms with h/w showers.
