Deco on 44 is a welcoming boutique hotel set within a refurbished old house that maintains its Art Deco period architecture and ambience. Very different in design to most of the colonial period homes within the Galle Fort, Deco on 44 offers spacious and luxurious suites, restaurant serving international cuisine, and a swimming pool set within private gardens. Rise leisurely and take a stroll along the maze of cobblestone roadways and discover life within this intriguing walled city edged by the Indian Ocean. Once back at the hotel, relax by the poolside and by nightfall, enjoy a drink and dinner under the stars at the roof top terrace with magnificent views across the clay tiled roofs of Galle Fort.
There are seven luxurious Standard Rooms and Suites spread across three floors. Suites are more spacious and include a lounging area. The rooms are named after the seven bastions that surround Galle Fort and each is individually decorated in keeping with the Art Deco theme. Interiors are comfortably furnished with king-size beds, writing desk, and wardrobe. Other in-room facilities include a/c, overhead fans, satellite TV, DVD player, in-room safe in-room dining, and laundry service. Ensuite bathrooms have h/w rain showers.
Ground floor rooms and suites: There are three Standard Rooms - Aurora, Triton, and Aeolus and one Suite named Neptune situated by the poolside in the quiet back gardens.
First floor suites: Sun and Moon suites are on the first floor and open on to spacious balconies overlooking Lighthouse street.
Second floor suite: Star is a superior suite which is situated by the roof top café. This suite has a bedroom and lounge facilities and has view across the Fort.
Deco restaurant on the ground floor offers all day dining with an extensive fusion menu. Sri Lankan and international dishes are prepared with fresh seafood and mainly organic vegetables purchased locally. The Gulf – Sheesha and Tapas bar, situated on the rooftop is ideal for relaxing under a starlit sky. Other hotel facilities include a swimming pool, library, DVD collection, board games, wifi internet in the public areas, and concierge service.
Deco on 44 is a seven-bedroom boutique hotel set within the Galle’s 17C Dutch Fort. It is housed in a refurbished 1930s period house on Lighthouse Street, a short stroll to the heritage sites, museums, shops and cafes. Galle is about 2.5 away from Colombo’s international airport via the Southern highway. If you are then heading from the coast into the hills, we offer competitive rates on a daily sea plane between Koggala and Hatton.
