What we love

  • This 300 year old capacious colonial house, once the residence of a neighbouring country’s ambassador, holds fort in one of the many charming cobbled streets of Galle. Take a left and a right and you’ll sniff your way to coffee shops, gelato parlours, sparkling gem stores, fashionable boutiques and hip restaurants set in the atmospheric fort town of Galle.
  • Walk your way into the pillared patio through the arched doorways to set foot in the palatial living room where archaic chandeliers dispel the darkness, eclectic sculptures and intricately designed rugs adorn the room, while dark timber furniture and an old gramophone, whisper a sweet regal song.
  • Get a good night’s sleep on the four poster beds, draped in white netted fabric, under vaulted ceilings. Each of the five air-conditioned bedrooms, 3 doubles, 1 twin and 1 master bedroom, comes with an ensuite modern and newly constructed bathroom.

The quaint historical town of Galle is a delightful example of Portuguese and Dutch architecture that seamlessly blends in with native traditions. A fortified city that bravely bounced back after the 2004 tsunami, the Galle city is full of wonders and surprises if you’ve got a quick eye and are ready to explore. There’s nothing like spending a day strolling along the decadent ramparts or the ancient cobbled paths with fascinating names such as the ” Moorse Kramerstraat” or the Pedlar Street while peaking into the magnificent Dutch Reformed Church.

Take a selfie with the oldest breadfruit tree in Galle and or have an engaging conversation with many a writers and artists who take a seat at their favourite watering holes in and around the fort area. Call it day with a visit to the Galle lighthouse soaking in the panoramic views.

Stilt Fishermen

In the past, to battle crowded fishing spots, fishermen affixed sticks in coral reefs right on the water during dawn and dusk to get their catch of the day while balancing themselves delicately on right angled offshoots known as ‘petta’. Many of these fishermen pose for the camera between Welligama and Unawatuna on the coastal strip and earn a better living than by just fishing!

Mirissa Dolphin & Whale Watching

Regardless of which part of the Western coastal strip you’re staying at, we’d highly recommend an excursion to Mirissa to go dolphin and whale watching! The excursions start in the early hours of the day where you join a group of people and head out deep into the sea. On the way, while you soak in the vastness of the sea, trained guides will help you spot the different types of playful dolphins that spy hop and leap out of the water to take stock of their surroundings!

Whales, fewer in number and deeper in the sea, are tougher to spot. But in the company of those who make these trips into the sea everyday, you’re bound to spot one! Watch out for the whale’s spout that appears like a fountain of water, a signal to keep the camera’s ready and eyes wide open! Book with Mirissa Water Sports or Raja & the Whales.
