When we first stumbled across an ancient warehouse at No.9 Church Cross Street in early 2011 we were instantly struck by its magnificent Dutch architecture. It’s potential to become a stylish and charming guest house was immediately apparent to us. Needless to say we jumped at the opportunity and poured our hearts and souls into creating what you see today.
Fortaleza’s five small boutique hotels in the Galle fort are historic in nature. In fact they possess more than a thousand years of history between them. They are all thoroughly unique. And yet they weave a common thread in the level of luxury and service the traveller can expect.
We pay particular attention to little details like keeping the linen crisp, the flowers fresh and shelves stocked with something nice to read. The sleeping arrangements come in master suites, queen sized bedrooms, twin bedrooms and family suites. All five properties are within easy walking distance of each other as well as all the other attractions of the Galle fort.
Our Restaurant & Bar is open all day long serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s also a place to while away the time with tea, coffee, fresh juice or a cocktail with some great tunes for company.
All our Guests are invited to breakfast at the Fortaleza Restaurant at no.9 Church Street. It’s just a gentle stroll from any of the five properties. Of course a Tuk Tuk will be arranged if you’d rather skip the walk.
