Galle Fort is one of the most historic towns in Sri Lanka. It’s full of old Dutch heritage as well as European style villas. So when we were invited to spend some time at the famous Galle Heritage Villa by Jetwing, we couldn’t wait to lay down our bags.
Located just a stones throw away from Galle Lighthouse, Galle Heritage Villa is a well known destination for travellers who like the finer things. Not to mention the quality service they provide.
Upon arrival we were greeted by large open planned rooms and tall ceilings. All with beautiful antique furniture and hanging tapestries.
We were in love with the setting and our king sized room that matched it. The whole building had a real rustic feel to it. In addition the dimmed lighting effect made it that little more homely.
Our room had a large walk through ensuite bathroom with all the little luxuries you could possibly need.
With upstairs common rooms available for taking some quiet time or choosing a novel from the book shelf, there’s plenty of comfortable seating areas for some much needed R&R.
The highlight of our stay had to be the breakfast. Or should we say banquet. From colourful fruit to a cute little pastry basket, our feast on the front patio was the perfect way to start the day.
From start to finish it was a great stay! So if you’re heading to Galle, we would definitely recommend Jetwing for a cute nights stay in the Fort.
