The Fortress

Situated at Koggala, designed after Galle's powerful ancient Dutch Fort, blending the country's Dutch and Portuguese influences with Sri Lankan motifs and indigenous furnishings to echo the historic days of Old Ceylon. A member of the 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World', this beautiful resort's walls enclose verdant gardens and water features, exquisitely-appointed rooms, lofts and residences, a free-flowing swimming pool, restaurants, a wine cellar and The Lime Spa.


All guest rooms boast a cutting-edge entertainment system and designer amenities. The Fortress's sense of design extends to its culinary art and the resort offers a variety of eateries including the unique 'T' Bar where guests may immerse themselves in the tea culture of Sri Lanka.
