The Fortress Resort & Spa


Based on reviews.

Mimicking the style of a powerful ancient fortress, this Sri Lankan gem is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and situated alongside the glimmering sands of the golden southern coast. Only 30 minutes away from historic Galle and close to picturesque Koggala Lake, giving it a location to challenge any beachside retreat. Rooms are the epitome of luxury with a distinct style and naturally modern twist; ocean view rooms are particularly recommended. The spa offers an array of signature treatments and dining is an experience to relish.
