The Fort Printers, Galle Fort - Sri Lanka
Galle Fort - Sri Lanka
An historical retreat, located in the heart of the UNESCO
Heritage Galle Fort, The Fort Printers offers boutique
accommodation with the feel of a private home. Formerly a school
and printers, this elegant 18th Century mansion with
Dutch Era Foundations, has been sensitively renovated by husband
and wife team (Dorine and Shahzad) and successfully marries
contemporary design with original features (tiling, wooden floor
boards and balustrades) and antiques against a backdrop of
white-washed, vibrant Indian rugs and silk cushions.
The Fort Printers comprises five spacious suites and a Villa,
which has recently opened in 2013 opposite, with three bedrooms
which can be taken over exclusively under one key. The swimming
pool offers respite from the heat and guests can dine alfresco on
seafood and Mediterranean inspired and traditional Sri Lankan
cuisine in the Frangipani courtyard or within a grand dining room.
The Fort Printers gives guests a taste of Galle's thriving art
and cultural scene, by regularly exhibiting local photography and
artwork. The property serves as an ideal base, from which to
explore the colonial culture of Galle Fort, home to an excellent
array of shopping, restaurants and nightlife.
