The Details...

The Fort Printers is a stunning and luxurious hotel that sits in the south of Sri Lanka near the pretty fortified city of Galle on the islands south coast. This elegant hotel, which has five gorgeous suites and two heritage villas, was once a glamorous 18th Century mansion before being turned into a working printing facility. The Fort Printers has been lovingly restored and now offers guests a comfortable and stylish place to stay with a personal service in an intimate and welcoming atmosphere. The hotel is situated in the historic Galle Fort which is a 16th Century Dutch colonial fort and now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The stylish suites feature super comfy beds, luxurious furniture and lovely high ceilings and are decked out with many antiques. Guests can get in after a day exploring this fantastic part of Sri Lanka before relaxing and unwinding in the peace and quiet of their rooms. Suites also have stylish and comfortable private bathrooms. Guests at The Fort Printers can also make the most of the wide variety of incredible food on offer. The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus offer an array of vibrant fish, seafood and other local produce. Enjoy home made soups, mezzes, curries and home made breads as well as succulent meat and fish dishes. Dine outside by the pool, or jump in for a dip to cool off in the mid afternoon sunshine.

This super stunning hotel is perfectly located for guests who wish to explore the city of Galle. Right by the coast, there are also miles of inspiring beaches nearby stretching in both directions. Enjoy the sounds of the sea beneath palm trees on tropical sandy beaches, or venture into the city and wander the streets. The big colonial town is a popular tourist spot and has some delightful cafes and restaurants as well as a range of activities to do nearby including snorkelling, diving and visiting the many historical spots dotted around. Guests who want to venture further afield can visit the pretty Sinharaja Forest Reserve and head in either direction along the coast to see yet more magical beaches. Or you may want to sit and watch locals playing cricket on the field nearby as the afternoon turns to early evening.
