Perched high on a hill, yet within minutes of the city centre, and with stupendous views of the UN World Heritage listed fort of Galle, ‘Doornberg’ or The Dutch House has set the pace in redefining luxury accommodation for the individual traveller in Sri Lanka.

The Dutch House is highly exclusive with only 4 suites in this country house built in 1712 which secures complete privacy for its guests.

Ample living areas, an English tropical garden complete with croquet lawn and treetop infinity pool provides liberal space for guests to find a quiet area in which to truly relax. Dutch Period antiques reflect its early 18th century origins but blend in well with its contemporary collection of art.

Having been voted as one of the top 20 hip hotels of the world, The Dutch House is the ultimate luxury for space & privacy in one of Ceylon’s most well preserved historic mansions.

The discreet and friendly staff ensure your privacy yet provide a very relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere.

Perfect for those looking for idle splendour, as doing nothing is the order of the day!

A great place for either beginning or ending your travels in Sri Lanka.
