The Fortress, Galle cleverly mixes modern design with Dutch and Portuguese architectural heritage, creating a modern resort set against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean and offering a truly luxurious destination on Sri Lanka’s beautiful south coast.
The Fortress has a fabulously relaxing Spa Naturel, which combines signature treatments with more traditional Ayurvedic treatments. There’s also a fitness studio for workouts and a charming yoga pavilion for classes.

The hotel has an inviting swimming pool and can arrange scuba diving with a local PADI certified operator.  And the surfing off the beach is excellent.
