Location is everything here in the heart of a 17th-century fort. This former home of a spice merchant is a contemporary breath of fresh air after the colonial chic prevalent in the rest of Galle’s luxury properties. The vibe is Middle Eastern, with 15 small rooms that are minimalist but stylish, with four-poster beds and compact bathrooms. Check out the roof terrace.
