The Fortress Resort & Spa
Close to the fortified city of Galle, this beachfront hotel echoes the city’s charming architecture with immense gates, white-washed walls and an extensive courtyard. This is the focal point of the resort, with many people enjoying the cooler air and pretty gardens located within. Here you’ll also find the spa, known for its range of Ayurvedic treatments and water therapies.
There are two restaurants to choose from – White, the all-day venue specialising in innovative Sri Lankan cuisine and international dishes, and Salty Snapper which serves seafood al fresco in the resort’s garden. For a special occasion, Duo is a romantic fine dining venue which has walls that are lined with floor-to-ceiling wine racks. There are also two lounges, one serving a variety of local teas and the other serving cocktails, including some that are infused with tea.
Rooms are spacious and modern and some even come with a private plunge pool; as a Kuoni guest, you’ll get a guaranteed upgrade to the next room type if you travel from April to July and or September to October. Fortress Rooms have an enclosed terrace or balcony with a view over a walled area. We highly recommend upgrading to an Ocean Room or a Beach Room for great views. Beach Rooms are on the ground floor with direct access to the pool and beach area. The Beach Splash Rooms are located on the ground floor and feature an indoor plunge pool which overlooks the resort’s gardens and beach.
