High on a hill, yet within minutes of the city centre, and with magnificent views of the UN World Heritage listed fort of Galle, Doornberg, the house has set the pace in redefining luxury accommodation for the individual traveller in Sri Lanka. Highly exclusive with only 4 suites this country house built in 1712 ensures complete privacy for its guests.
Spacious living areas, an English tropical garden complete with croquet lawn and treetop infinity pool provides ample space for guests to find a quiet area in which to truly unwind. Period Dutch antiques reflect its early 18th century origins but blend in well with its contemporary collection of art.
Voted as one of the top 20 hip hotels of the world, the house is the ultimate indulgence in space & privacy in one of Ceylon’s most well preserved historic mansions.
The discreet and friendly staff ensure your privacy yet provide a very relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere.
Perfect for those looking for idle splendour, as doing nothing is the order of the day!
A great place for either beginning or ending your travels in Sri Lanka.
The house has 4 luxury suites that combine absolute grandeur with the utmost comfort. Filled with colonial antiques, the interiors evoke a pervasive mood of stillness and warmth which is at once romantic and relaxing. Each bedroom is fully air conditioned with mosquito-net-draped 4 poster beds, luxurious silk drapes, cool polished concrete floors and stunning soft furnishings. The bedrooms lead into a private sitting room which contains comfortable sofas and writing desks with views over the magnificent Galle Fort, the croquet lawn or a private garden. Spacious bathrooms are fitted with fine showers and traditional claw-footed bath tubs which add to the colonial atmosphere.
At this house breakfast is at any time. There are no time constraints and guests can leisurely enjoy a delicious English breakfast: a range of eggs with toast and marmalade, fruit shakes and tea, served in the courtyard, verandah or in the garden.
Light lunches and snacks are served throughout the day in the garden, by the pool or in your room.
Dinner is served at the next door sister property which is renowned for some of the best food in Sri Lanka.
The dinner menu changes daily with a starter, main course and a choice of three delicious desserts.
The house is located on Sri Lanka’s exotic south coast which is quietly becoming the Riviera of choice for the world’s most discerning and inquisitive travellers. Conveniently located to the UN World Heritage site of Galle Fort, Buddhist temples, rainforests, lowland tea plantations, wildlife reserves and some of the most fabulous beaches in the Indian ocean.
Set high on a hill over looking Galle Harbour, the house is the perfect place to base yourself to set off exploring the local & chaotic markets and villages of the Southern Province.
Should you decide to leave the peace and tranquility of the house and set off exploring Galle and the historic Fort, we recommend that you use one of the local Tuk Tuks to get around in & explore. Our staff will arrange this for you on request.
The house is within walking distance of the centre of Galle and the Galle Fort. Walking around the Fort is the best way to soak in its history and to explore the narrow streets, laneways and historic ramparts. Also available is our restored vintage Rover.
Getting There & Away
Distances between locations in Sri Lanka are not that far, yet the time taken by road to reach a destination can be a somewhat tiring experience.
Our team can arrange transfers for you by either chauffer driven air conditioned vehicles, sea plane, steam train or helicopter.
The house is a 4 hour drive south from Colombo’s international airport or for guests coming from the centre of the city of Colombo, a 3 hour drive.
Rather than travelling by road why not transfer directly from your international flight onto Sri Lankan Airlines Air Taxi and arrive in Galle (Koggala airport) in just 30 mins. Koggala airport is only a 15 minute drive from the house. It is the ideal way to travel in style, comfort and luxury at an affordable price.
