Hotel Description

In recent years Sri Lankan tourism has been heating up in a big way. And nowhere, it seems, has got a bigger share of the action right now than the Galle Fort, the south-coast walled city built by Dutch traders in the 17th century. Here on the winding streets of this historic district, hotels are forced to keep a low profile — the ones worth noting tend to be extremely small and unobtrusive, tucked away behind the walls of centuries-old landmark buildings.

Fort Printers is exactly this kind of hotel. It's an intimate thirteen-suite masterpiece carved out of three historic buildings: a former print shop and a pair of 18th-century Dutch mansions. They’re all different in layout and design, but all are spectacularly well-designed — contemporary, sparely furnished, open to the sun and breeze, with high ceilings, huge windows, jackwood floors and whitewashed walls.

Meals lean heavily on fresh local seafood, Sri Lankan curries and some degree of Mediterranean influence. The small number of suites in each building means the place is as intimate as can be — you’ll feel more like a house guest than a hotel customer. Or, play host: booking a whole villa isn’t entirely out of the question.

How to get there:

The Fort Printers is located 90 km (2-3h) from the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo. Transfers can be arranged for US$120 for up to 6 guests, per way. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
