    Absolutely 5 star in every way. Perfect accomodation for 4-5 couples or large family, spotless and quiet but oh so close to all that Galle Fort offers.
    Wonderful meals prepared by Chef Jaya – lobsters, prawns and fish, all fresh from the market each day. Great curries.
    Fresh pots of tea or coffee, home made cakes (cardamon and lime syrup – Yum), G&T’s by the pool, clothes washed, dried and folded daily. Totally safe and secure.
    Cant wait to return!

    Beautiful relaxing villa in the heart of Galle Fort. So peaceful and quiet at night but only a minute walk to restaurants and activities.

    However Chef Jaya produced such beautiful food we rarely ventured out. Lal was always on hand for pot of fresh tea and pre dinner G and T. For my birthday we had grilled lobsters and cardamon cake with lime syrup – Yum.

    The place is spotless and the staff do everthing to make your stay a pleasure. Will be coming back – but don’t book my week!!!

    Dont overpack – washing done everyday and folded as part of service.

    “Absolute Luxury and Privacy in Sri Lanka”

    What an Experience,,,After a Fantastic Safari and Coastal Tour for 6 Days we arrived at Galle Fort to The Ambassadors House. From the time we arrived and were welcomed by Loku and her Staff we were in Heaven. After a detailed tour of this Beautiful 5 Bedroom Residence by Loku were left to relax and enjoy a Swim and explore the House before Lal delivered a tray of Gin and Tonics to us at the Pool.

    We were summoned to Dinner around 8pm which was magnificent and after that retired for the Evening.Morning arrived to the Aroma of a Tray of Coffee by the Pool.
    Breakfast was server at 8am and again delicious. Jaya our Chef spoke to us after Breakfast to discuss the Dinner Menu for that evening, After the previous nights Feast we decided to leave the arrangements to him for the next 6 days. We chose to stay with Sri Lankan Food throughout and he didn’t dissapoint. Every Evening we savoured wonderful 2 and 3 Course Meals. No need for a Menu here, leave it to Chef Jaya. Breakfast choices excellent also.

    We explored around the Fort daily so usually returned mid afternoon to enjoy the Pool. Lal was on hand for our Afternoon Coffee and Pre Dinner Gin and Tonic Tray’s , always so prompt.
    The House was always spotlessly clean and Beds very Comfortable.
    We didnt want to Leave !!

    A Very Big Thank You to Loku, Lal, Jaya, Yasitha and Kavindu, Superb Service. We Will Return.

    “Outstanding luxury for a group stay”

    Four nights at Ambassador’s house after a week of chaos and traffic traveling around southern Sri Lanka was the perfect end to the trip. The villa has lots of space for everyone to hang out, or get some peace and quiet. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. All of the meals prepared by the chefs were exceptional and there was enough space to eat in a different spot each night! The location is ideal, in a quiet street in the middle of Galle Fort with everything you need within walking distance. Really cannot recommend Ambassador’s House enough. We have even tried to book another say, but the dates weren’t available!

    You wouldn’t believe you can stay in a villa like this within the Galle Fort!

    My work colleagues and I should have realised from the name Ambassador’s House (historically once the residence of the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Pakistan, Iraq and Bangladesh we understand!) that we were in for something special, but this villa took our breath away upon entering the gates. The sheer size and majestic nature of the property right in the Galle Fort is one that needs to be seen to be believed!

    From the impressive entrance, to the expansive living, dining, and courtyard areas, the property seems to just keep opening up as you continue to walk through and explore. The designer was truly a master of his craft, as every foot of space has been cleverly (and stylishly) utilised to maximise the sense of space for guests to enjoy.

    With each room obviously painstakingly cared for with attention to detail in keeping the authenticity of the colonial style of the villa throughout, there were exquisite modern luxury touches added such as a brightly coloured plush lounge with flatscreen TV, and sunbed rooftop lounges overlooking the private pool. The pool! Such an impressive and inviting pool situated in the courtyard, you almost feel as if you are swimming in the glorious water feature of an old romance novel.

    We unfortunately only had a short stay, but had a lovely chat with the manager and definitely see ourselves coming back again – and this time bringing with us our family and friends to truly relish in the old style charm of the place! Ambassador’s House is such an impressive property that channels traditional Sri Lanka essence for all its guests.

    Stunning Villa!

    Seriously one of the coolest 5 bedroom villas in Galle fort in Sri Lanka! Each of the bedrooms is almost equal in size, they all have ensuite bathrooms and air-conditioning. The swimming pool is a pleasant surprise as many of the villas in town don’t have pools in town. The villa is fully staffed with a chef so you don’t have to lift a finger! Walking distance to Galle Fort’s best restaurants, shops and bars. Stay a couple nights or do a week – but just make sure you visit Galle as you will not regret staying in the fort. It’s just awesome!

    “Beautiful villa with excellent staff”

    We stayed in the villa with 2 families for 5 nights. We choose the villa as it was better value than a hotel and offered more flexibility especially for the young children. This was our favourite place that we stayed for our whole Sri Lanka trip. The villa is beautiful very spacious with a lovely pool. It is in a great location in the heart of Galle Fort. The staff are all very attentive and we had some of the best food especially the Sri Lankan breakfast. The villa manager went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and provided lots of useful local knowledge.
