The Fortress Resort and Spa

TripAdvisor Review
Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel is located right next to Koggala beach near the Sri Lankan port of Galle, which is home to the UNESCO world heritage listed Dutch Fort and the Dutch Reform Church. Koggala is a small beach village with its own cultural centre in the form of the fascinating Museum of Folk, Art and Culture. Guests may enjoy taking a boat trip on the lagoon and Kogggala Lake to see the surrounding small islands, famous for their fantastic bird watching. Its proximity to the picturesque Lake Koggala means that guests have the opportunity of coming to the hotel by seaplane, which is a truly impressive experience. The hotel is located some 140 kilometres from Colombo International Airport (CMB). The train station is some 10 km away.

The hotel, which was recently opened, is located near Galle and borrows its style from the ancient Dutch Fort, but puts a modern, 21st century spin on it. The hotel comprises a total of 49 rooms. It has a lobby with hotel safe and currency exchange facility. Bar and dining facilities also feature. Room and laundry services are on offer. Parking facilities are available for guests arriving by car.
