Deluxe - ££££


A fabulous, sun-soaked Sri Lankan beachfront hotel with real style credentials, The Fortress Resort & Spa offers the perfect coastal retreat.

Stay here and you’ll be treated to world-class service, luxurious accommodation and gourmet food, all while drinking in magnificent Indian Ocean views.

The Fortress Resort & Spa brings together contemporary elegance with charming colonial architecture. There are so many wonderful experiences on offer at this South Coast gem, from exotic cocktails and the freshest seafood specialities to indulgent Ayurvedic massages in the spa.

If you can tear yourself away from the hotel’s sauna, hot tub and beautiful pool, why not venture out? There’s lots to see and do nearby, with both Galle Fort and Unawatuna just a short drive away. You can even plan a trip to nearby Koggala Lake or the Yatagala Temple.


Each of the stylish rooms here at The Fortress Resort & Spa is thoughtfully decorated and furnished, with air-conditioning and private balconies. Upgrade to a deluxe suite for incredible ocean views – or perhaps even your own private infinity pool.

The Fortress Resort & Spa has a great-sized swimming pool, bar and three highly recommended restaurants. These include a speciality seafood restaurant, a steakhouse and an a la carte restaurant serving up Sri Lankan and European gourmet dishes.

Aside from its perfect beachfront location, the resort also has pretty terraces and gardens, a fitness centre, sauna, hot tub and off-site tennis court. Whether you want to join a morning yoga session, learn to windsurf or take a bike tour of the area, the friendly staff will be happy to organise it.

Why we love it

The Fortress Resort & Spa is the perfect seaside sanctuary, with the twinkling Indian Ocean spread out in front of you. You won’t be able to take your eyes off it.
