A beachfront boutique with old-world charm
A combination of Dutch and Portuguese styles with echoes of Old Ceylon, this exquisite hotel has set a new standard of accommodation in Sri Lanka. A stunning boutique property in a beautiful beachfront setting.
Travelling along the coastal road with our private Kuoni guide describing the culture of the local area we turn off the road to be faced by the two huge wooden doors of The Fortress. As they open they reveal one of the views from our entire Sri Lanka tour; through the open plan luxury boutique reception, across the infinity pool is the ocean. The Fortress is part of the Kuoni Collection and everything explains why; the service, accommodation and food really are as good as it gets and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
