Located on the golden southern coast of Sri Lanka, The Fortress is 30 minutes away from Sri Lanka's most historically interesting living fort city, Galle. Recreating history, the architecture of The Fortress is styled after Galle's famed Dutch Fort. Naturally modern design forges historic Dutch and Portuguese styles with Sri Lankan motifs, innovative architecture and designer amenities. Rising next to the seaside, the resort‟s walls enclose beautiful gardens sheltering hammocks, daybeds and stunning water features.
All of the 49 guest rooms & suites feature 7ft by 7ft super king beds, open plan bathrooms, and state-of-the-art entertainment systems with plasma screens, Bose DVD players and surround sound systems, air-conditioning and mini bar.
