Galle Heritage Villa

Galle Heritage Villa by Jetwing, winner of the certificate of excellence for service in 2012 from Trip Advisor, is situated at 71, Lighthouse Street, Galle Fort, and is truly a marvel amongst Galle villas. A beautiful Southern getaway lodged inside this stunning World Heritage Site, where narrow cobbled streets traipse into a serene world of walled courtyards lush with greenery. An original fort family home from the Dutch period, turned into a swanky boutique villa with a unique stylistic blend of the plush contemporary and the familiar comforts of classical antiquity offers luxury accommodation in Galle. Four exquisite luxury deluxe bedrooms sport four-poster beds, with excellent bathrooms with rain showers and Wi-Fi access for those blogging about your stay to envious friends. A relaxing spot that is centrally located only minutes from the historic fort walls, main museums and the delightful shopping area along Pedlar’s Street. These quarters double as Café J during the day from 9am to 6pm servicing delicious light snacks and drinks such as lime and king-coconut water picked fresh from the villa garden. Combine this with being able to use the Jetwing Lighthouse pool and facilities fifteen minutes away, a fabulous spot designed and built by Asia’s top architect Geoffrey Bawa. This gives every guest the best of both worlds.
