Galle Fort Villa


Start from 500 US$ /night3 Bedrooms
25 Rampart Street
This 19th century building that once belonged to a British merchant is located right in the heart of Galle Fort, just a few yards away from the town’s historic ramparts, affording it breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean and the Buddhist temple of Sri Sudharmalaya. This proximity to the sea is an almost unique feature that very few villas of the fort can offer. The current owner bought the house six years ago and has since poured a great deal of love and attention into maintaining its early 19th century architectural style, while ensuring the modern comfort of a family home. Furnished with a subtle blend of antique and contemporary pieces, 25 Rampart Street is a shining example of the beauty of classical elegance teamed with a modern twist.

The rental has four spacious and comfortable rooms that can accommodate up to eight people. The very generous master bedroom located on the first floor, features a king size four-poster bed and offers spectacular views over the ocean as well as the fort’s 17th century ramparts and lighthouse. It has a private bathroom equipped with an old-fashioned bathtub overlooking the Indian Ocean that is ideal for soaking in after a long day walking through the fort’s cobbled streets. Alongside this is a double bedroom with a king size four-poster bed that opens out onto a terrace overlooking the private back garden. Two further double bedrooms are situated on the ground floor and overlook the garden. Both are furnished with king size four-poster beds and en-suite bathrooms with showers. All the bedrooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans.

A lounge area equipped with satellite TV and a DVD player can be found on the first floor. This spacious and comfortable room is furnished with a built-in sofa, an antique wooden chest and a small library on which rests a large flat-screen TV. The wide windows of this room offer a panoramic view of the ramparts and the Indian Ocean.

An outdoor living space, located on the ground floor’s veranda, offers a delightful view of the garden and its flowering frangipani trees. It is furnished with comfortable sofas and rattan chairs. Abstract oils adorn the walls giving the room a modern and introspective feel. Meals are served on the veranda around the large family table that can accommodate up to ten people.

Very unusually for houses within the fort, the villa has its own private garden and a 32 foot pool. Here you can cool off in the shade of the frangipani trees whose petals fall like snowflakes onto the water’s surface, while being gently soothed by the sound of the many birds that populate this lush and tropical garden. Guests can also treat themselves to a massage or a private yoga class by simply informing the staff in advance of their needs.

To ensure your stay is problem-free, a team of three people, overseen by Manoj who has managed the villa for over five years, will take care of running the house for you. The team includes a chef called Amitha who will be in charge of preparing your daily meals. However, if you prefer to dine out, the fort’s many restaurants, which are within easy walking distance, offer a wide selection of western and local cuisine.

The team of 25 Rampart Street will be at your service to ensure your stay in Sri Lanka is both magnificent and memorable.
