The Detail

A contemporary style property with the design reflecting the heritage of the area, The Fortress is set on a large plot right on the beachfront near Koggalla lake, 30 minutes south of Galle. This is conveniently located near the airstrip which offers seaplane flights to Colombo, the tea hills and the cultural triangle. There are many different styles of rooms, some overlooking the Indian Ocean and large enough to accommodate a family of 4, with flat screen tvs and surround sound Bose systems. The huge pool overlooks the ocean and although the waves prohibit swimming in the sea, it is a real treat to go for a swim and look out at the turquoise water and the traditional stilt fishermen. Enjoy dining in one of the many restaurants, whether you fancy pizza, fine Sri Lankan curries or the delicious seafood buffet. The Ayurvedic spa offers some wonderful treatments to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit to enhance your stay.

Millis Potter Insight

For couples or families wanting a beachfront hotel with lots of facilities and dining options, the Fortress fits the bill perfectly. Although some of the smaller boutique properties dotted along the coast may offer a higher level of personal service, a stay here offers everything you need for couples and families. With the huge beachfront pool, array of dining options and large and well equipped rooms The Fortress combines well with a stay in Galle Fort whilst exploring the south coast. The great location near Koggalla means you can explore some of the highlights of the area easily such as visiting the White Tea plantation, go whale watching in Mirissa or surfing in Weligama – all within 30 minutes of the property.
