About this listing
17th Century townhouse, re-defined
Welcome to Fort Bazaar
Begin your Galle quest at Fort Bazaar, a handsome merchant’s home-turned-boutique hotel with 18 stylish guestrooms and fresh, contemporary interiors invoking a Middle Eastern vibe. Positioned on Church Street within a UNESCO-listed 17th century fort, this spa hotel in Galle promises serenity, high-end service and gourmet modern dining, and makes a very welcoming retreat from the bustling cobbled streets of Galle Fort.
The historic port city of Galle lies on Sri Lanka’s south western coast, and is the gateway to a string of intimate sandy bays carved out of the island’s exotic southern coastline. Most come here to visit Galle’s 17th century fort, home to a striking collection of colonial buildings dating back to the British, Dutch and Portuguese colonial eras.
Galle Fort’s quaint streets offer some of the island’s most rewarding urban strolls, not only for the historic buildings that flank the fort’s cobbled streets but the little boutiques, cafes and gelaterias that lie in wait. The coral and limestone ramparts are a hive of activity, particularly towards the day’s end when impromptu cricket games break out and people from all walks of life converge on the western ramparts to watch an Indian Ocean sunset.
Galle offers very easy access to stunning local beaches for swimming, diving and surfing, and for embarking on coastal cruises to observe whales and dolphins in the deep sea. Galle’s verdant palm-dominated interior home to lowland tea factories, centuries-old Buddhist temples, ageing rain forests and vast cinnamon-edged Koggala Lake also beg to be explored.
Sri Lanka’s time-defying
Galle’s old town, is one of Sri Lanka’s great monuments to the island’s rich history. Each of Galle Fort’s narrow streets, lined with evocative centuries-old villas, atmospheric churches and ochre spice warehouses, recounts the past. The Fort Bazaar is superbly positioned within footsteps of prime Galle Fort sights and shops.
Fifteen courtyard-facing rooms and three upper floor suites are furnished with comfy four-poster beds and are complemented by modern amenities.
Escape Galle’s hustle and bustle at our indulgent Z Spa where peace reigns and luxurious, restful and revitalising treatments await. Our therapies have been conceived and designed to help you unwind.
