Overview

The Fortress brings back the best of Dutch colonialism-inspired architecture, and plants it firmly in 21st-century Sri Lanka. Two cultures and time periods have never mingled so well.

Ask for the dinner experience set within their pool.
The Dutch used to have a habit of arriving unannounced at your country's door, and making themselves at home. Although controversial, the Netherlanders did leave behind some interesting cultural and artistic footprints. In Sri Lanka's historic Galle, these have been followed and vastly improved upon to create The Fortress, a seaside resort located on the country's south coast.

Boasting 41 rooms, six Ocean Lofts, and two Fortress Residences, the interior style here turns an eye to the future, with tasteful, modern pieces set around enormous super king beds.

Spend lush afternoons exploring Galle's historic inner walls, take a ride down the River Madu, or go get your heartstrings tugged at the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage.

Yoga, a full gym, and a must-have infinity pool are all perfect for showing off a tanned exterior. For when your interior needs refueling, try Heat or Pepper, where vibrant Sri Lankan eats are sure to light up your life.
