Fort Bazaar stands proud within the walls of Galle Fort, a 17th century UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once a prosperousmerchant’s home, it has now been turned into a boutique hotel centred around a traditional courtyard with light and airy guestrooms. The buzzy restaurant and bar, Church Street Social, offers a tempting range of dishes that blend together traditional Sri Lankan cuisine and Middle Eastern flavours, staying true to Galle’s past as an important spice trading hub. The curated collection of fantastic experiences in Galle celebrate its diversity, from Galle Fort walks to whale watching in Mirissa.
The 18 stylish rooms and suites are sleek in style and come with comfortable four-poster beds, white-tiled en-suites and modern amenities. There is a perfect balance between contemporary and classically cool, making sure Galle’s heritage remains a feature. Their restaurant, Church Street Social, is a popular for their gourmet dishes among guests, locals and day-trippers alike so you can expect a lively atmosphere here. The amalgamation of the city’s cultural influences is also reflected in the hotel's overall architecture and interior design; the building has been beautifully renovated and furnished with tasteful and understated Middle Eastern touches,
The Fort Bazaar is positioned within footsteps of prime Galle Fort sights, shops, cafes and beaches ideal for surfing, blue whale watching cruises, scuba diving. All in all, we believe Fort Bazaar is an exciting addition to the hotel and restaurant scene in Galle. It is a creation of Teardrop hotels, the team behind the acclaimed Wallawwa, who not only respect the coastal city's melting pot legacy, but also holds up against the high calibre competition at a very reasonable price. The hotel staff are kind and attentive and are able to provide transfers to and from sites on request, making your sightseeing here as seamless as possible.
