Sun House
Galle

Set in the hills overlooking the historic town of Galle, this stylish colonial house was built by a Scottish nutmeg merchant in the 1860's and was converted into a welcoming and elegant private residence by a leading interior decorator 130 years later.

It has subsequently become a small boutique hotel, considered one of the best-kept secrets on the island. The predominantly white rooms are tastefully furnished in a medley of colonial styles ranging from the Portuguese to the predominantly Dutch and British. A beautiful library furnished with over sized sofas and huge vases of tropical foliage and flowers add a more contemporary feel.

The seven bedrooms vary in size and all have four poster beds and ensuite bathrooms. The well-tended garden is filled with perfumed frangipani trees and a solitary mango tree with a flight of weathered steps leading to a small but exquisite pool. Rooms can be rented individually or alternatively the hotel can be taken in its entirety.

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
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- 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
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
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
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
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!
