Discover countryside hotels and rural retreats in Galle, Sri Lanka

Galle’s history dates back centuries, and this strategic port was once a bustling centre of maritime trade. Today, the fort’s richly preserved, Unesco-listed buildings bear indelible reminders of the European colonialists who built this bastion, and exude an easy calm that’s worlds away from the colourful new town and its market-lined streets. With seductive beaches in reach at Talpe, Dalawella and Unawatuna, it's no surprise Galle tops many travellers must-see lists.

Galle is also one of the stops on our Sri Lankan itineraries…
