Ambassadors House
Ambassador's House was the much admired residence of the Ambassador of Bangladesh. Located in the historic 17th century fort town of Galle, this old colonial mansion will take you on a journey back in time. Staying in Galle Fort offers you the luxury of enjoying city life while being just a stone’s throw away from southern Sri Lanka’s idyllic beaches and delightful countryside of forests, paddy fields and tea plantations.

You enter the residence through a column-flanked, arched doorway. This leads to a large living area that combines a colonial-contemporary design. It is sumptuously decorated with orange and purple sofas and huge mirrors adorning the walls. Alongside these are a variety of paintings and objets d’art including an old phonograph that lends a touch of nostalgia to the space. These spacious interiors that were designed to be used by visiting dignitaries make Ambassador's House the ideal getaway for a group of friends or a large family.

The property includes two generously-proportioned buildings connected by a flowering, grass-covered courtyard and shaded by luxuriant palm trees. On entering the two-storey building that houses the bedrooms, dining room, kitchen and small living area, you are greeted by a magnificent stone Buddha. You then cross a charming walkway adorned with majestic columns that leads to three double bedrooms. These all open out onto the elongated, semi-indoor pool that is overhung by a tropical garden and a cascading wall of water.

The three rooms all benefit from king size four-poster beds, air conditioning, ceiling fans, safes, and ensuites with shower. The other two bedrooms are located on the first floor and include the palatial master bedroom with its own bathtub and private living space. A smaller room alongside this has two single four-poster beds and direct access to the roof terrace. From there, you can enjoy commanding views over the pool as well as an unhindered view of the surrounding rooftops and monuments. To enhance the enjoyment of your rental, a relaxation area has been fully equipped with sun loungers on which to enjoy a massage or simply soak up the sun’s rays in total peace and tranquility.

Combining intimacy and space, the TV room offers wonderful views over the pool. Guests have a complete range of hi-tech, modern amenities at their disposal which simply adds to the high standard of comfort and luxury offered by this villa.

To make your stay even more restful, a gourmet chef will prepare all your meals, while the housekeeping team will tend to the property on a daily basis. They will ensure your every need is taken care of and will be on hand to help you organise transport, activities and much more.
