Fort 52,


Price From :


Fort 52 consists of two beautifully refurbished Dutch-period villas which can be booked by the room or as a whole. The central focus is a large garden which is an utter luxury within Galle Fort. Walk through the reception and living room on to a broad verandah that skirts around the property. Tall antique temple columns reach 22 feet from the ground floor to the second-floor terrace and the clay-tiled roof, creating outdoor spaces that are cool and airy. Stylish interiors have modern art, plush sofas and modern conveniences. Fort 52 can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests and welcomes families with children over 12 years, a limitation imposed for safety reasons. A minimum two night’s stay is required. Fort 52 is the sister property of Villa Mawella – a beach villa in Tangalle in the deep south.


There are five bedrooms of which three are on the upper floor of the main villa while two are located in the smaller villa. Rooms have king-size four-poster beds dressed in fine linen and mosquito nets, polished wooden floors, a/c and overhead fans. The modern ensuite bathrooms have h/w showers.

Deluxe Double Room: This double room is on the ground floor of the smaller villa and opens on to the verandah on Pedlar Street.

Superior Double Rooms: Located on the upper floor of the main villa, these two rooms are spacious and open out to a covered timber terrace and looks down on to the central garden.

Superior Deluxe Suites:  One of these luxurious suites is a master bedroom and located on the upper floor of the main villa. Below a 17- foot high ceiling it boasts two separate ensuite bathrooms, walk- in dressing rooms, a massive super king- sized bed and French antique arm chairs and tables. The second Superior Deluxe Suite and its small private balcony are on the upper floor of the smaller villa. The bathroom has twin vanities, separate shower and toilet and amenities.
