Comments from Owner Guestbook

This is a fabulous hideaway for honeymooners. We had a wonderful time in this lovely Villa which is spotless and well equipped. The pool is wonderful and the roof terrace is a great place for an evening drink and dinner after the heat of the day disappears. There is loads to see and do in The Fort - we found a lovely old gem shop (it is said that Galle is where King Soloman obtained his gems) and had a stunning gold ring designed and made very cheaply. Take lunch and a drink on the terrace of the Galle Fort Hotel and watch the world leisurely pass by. For a really good beach and swimming, Unawatuna - 5 minutes in a three wheeler from outside the Villa, is a must. Try garlic prawns or the lobster at the Banana Garden Restaurant. Cheap and fabulous. The sea comes within 3 metres of your table. We will be back for our first anniversary! Natashia and Charles, London EC1,UK

A truly beautiful and relaxing house!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 5 nights in the stunning Malabar House, and every single day was incredibly relaxing and stress free. The house is very tastefully decorated in true Galle Fort style, it is spacious, bright and airy... we loved it! The staff there were very friendly and helpful during are stay, which made the whole experience hassle free. The food was delicious, the location perfect, needless to say we would love to visit this house again! I strongly recommend this house for both couples and families.

A beautiful house with wonderful staff

  • 5 out of 5
Malabar House is stunning. Perfectly located within Galle Fort, it is luxurious and comfortable. The house is beautifully decorated throughout and staffed by friendly and helpful locals. Delicious food! A wonderful place to stay. I would love to go back. We were torn between exploring around the Fort and just staying in the house as it felt like nowhere could beat it!

Sri Lanka, near Unwatuna, south coast. Galle Fort boasts of a long history stretching back centuries, even before the Portuguese, Dutch and British Colonial days. Today it is home to the historic 90 acre preserved Dutch Fort, declared an archaeological reserve by the UN since 1969. This walled city is the slow beating heart of Galle, bearing witness to its past through the near crumbling architecture of grand old buildings, street names and Dutch churches. Galle is the only place in Sri Lanka that still retains an old world atmosphere. The sounds of Galle are the call to prayer from Mosques, Pali chants from Buddhist temples, fish sellers and tinkers hawking their wares on Main Street. Its fine old colonial mansions, Galle Fort Hotel, Ammangalle, and Lighthouse Hotel nearby make Galle Fort a hauntingly beautiful escape into the past. Enter through the 'old' Dutch Gate or the 'new' English one. The Villa is close to the Ramparts and small beaches that are great for a morning dip.

Other Activities: Yala National Park, snake farm, turtle hatchery, folk museum
