It is the history of the property itself; the elegant colonial building, once a spice warehouse, was built around 1600 in the heart of Galle Fort by a Dutch merchant. It is also the location of the property; being directly in the center of the Galle Fort is the perfect base to explore the Fort and the surrounding area.
Life in Fortaleza revolves around its beautiful restaurant and living area, and its sunny courtyard. There you can relax on the daybed with honeyed limejuice, tuck into some freshly caught fish, or share one of Fortaleza’s signature table barbeques. Popular with weekenders from Colombo searching out delicious food, we always use the freshest seasonal produce, grown locally, and source only the best quality fish and meat. Staying at Fortaleza will give you the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful town of Galle and the local area. Fortaleza has only four bedrooms all tastefully decorated with their own sense of style.
