Galle Fort Hotel
Galle

This iconic building has been developed by a rather hip couple from Australia. A chic and charming property, this 14 suite boutique hotel is in the heart of Galle Fort – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most sought-after locations in Sri Lanka. It has been painstakingly refurbished in a traditional manner, paying deep homage to Galle’s rich cultural and aesthetic values, without compromising modern comforts and luxuries.

Traditional teak floors run throughout the building and antiques are scattered amongst luxurious surroundings. The restaurant offers fantastic Asian cuisine served with the highest standards of service, and guests can enjoy meals overlooking the pool or in the elegant dining room. The contemporary outdoor swimming pool gives this intimate colonial gem a unique and laid-back atmosphere.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
