    Highly Recommended

    We stayed here in December and had an absolutely wonderful relaxed time. It’s a seriously gorgeous building that dates back ~centuries, and has bene revitalized with a touch of modern aesthetic, while maintaining the elegant history of its original structure. The A/C rooms are delightfully decorated, clean, comfortable — everything you’d want. Bathrooms as well, and the shower was niiiice! . Can’t speak highly enough of this spot. Go for it if it’s in your budget.

    Heavenly Retreat

    Stayed at No 39 with 3 of my friends whilst on a business trip last November. We were so impressed with the place and would recommend it to anyone who is in Galle on business or leisure.This Villas is everything the web site boasts and so much more.It is a grand old house built during the Dutch era.It is a piece of history in it self but with all the modern comforts.The deco is very tastefully done with much attention to detail.

    The rooms are large and airy and the bath rooms are modern.The indoor court yard is very cool and breezy and the ideal place to sip a cup of Good Sri Lankan Tea whist you relax.Our stay here was made extra special by the welcome we got from our lovely housekeeper Ajith who was always with a smile and all out to please. Ajjith cooked us a lovely breakfast of Sri Lankan Milk Rice and Fresh fish Curry, the day after we arrived.The food was delicious.

    No 39 is set inside the Galle Fort which is very quiet and peaceful but also only a short drive a way from the Galle Town. We had a wonderful stay here and hope to visit in the near future.Thank You for a memorable stay.

    Ideal property for Fort Galle adventuring!

    Pop through the doors of No.39 and what opens up for you? Your own personal colonial style mansion, that’s what!

    The high roofs, the well-chosen furniture, the inviting upstairs TV room, and each of the amply-sized bedrooms all exude luxury and sophistication,… and then you have the impressive courtyard! We weren’t too sure what to expect when coming to Fort Galle, but once we came into No.39 we knew we were in for a treat as we knew we would feel right at home in this ultra-elegant abode for the few days we were here.

    The villa manager Mark greeted us with a warm smile and a plethora of information about the Fort and the area, as well as giving us great tips on where else we should explore and what we should do while in Sri Lanka. Each bedroom and bathroom, as well as the conjoined dining and relaxation space, had meticulous attention to detail for us to relax and either just read a good book, or have a drink and chat with each other.

    The daily complimentary breakfasts cooked by our chef-come-butler Ajit were second-to-none: scrumptious (and spicy!) Sri Lankan-style stringhoppers with shaved coconut, chili, and dhal. DELICIOUS. Otherwise, you can opt for a Western-style omelette or similar instead.

    The style and features throughout the property engage you with a sense of romance and adventure, and sets itself as the perfect locale for you to then explore the Fort and see all the little streets and alleyways – not to mention the simply stunning views from the Fort walls – just minutes away from the main crossroad where the property sits. 5-stars!

    The perfect home base for exploring Galle: we loved coming home to No. 39 after roaming the lanes of Galle Fort each day.

    The villa looks unremarkable from the outside, but as soon as you walk through the door you are greeted with high ceilings, Sri Lankan art and comfortable furniture and a lovely courtyard. The villa is remarkably spacious and very, very private.

    Ajit, the villa’s live in attendant, makes a delicious breakfast and really cares for his guests. He’d turn on the A/C in the bedrooms in the afternoon, before we’d come home, so they were the perfect temperature for us. He also lit tea candles and keeps the property in immaculate condition.

    The 3 bedrooms were incredibly comfortable, amazing water pressure, super fast Internet, great overall energy throughout the property.

    Full marks Ajit, thank you for looking after us!
