Long before the Galle Fort was universally acknowledged as a national treasure, there were some properties within these storied ramparts that were special enough to spark the imagination and birth a vision. This villa in Galle is one such catalyst, the first to be bought by a foreigner in the post-colonial era and one of the very first to be styled and restored into the sort of intimate, luxurious villa that Sri Lanka's most discerning travelers have come to expect from hotels in Galle Fort.
Most recently restored by the new owners, this exotic location is an elegant combination of colonial charm and modern amenities. A powerful design aesthetic weaves together the spirit of the old world, the magic of nature, and the comforts of today. No. 25 is also one of the few properties within the entirety of the Galle Fort that provides the luxury of a private swimming pool.
As always, the staff at this Galle villa are unobtrusive but infinitely attentive, paying attention to all the little things that are bound to make an enjoyable stay, truly memorable.
