Tucked within Galle's historic seventeenth century fortress on the picturesque southern coast of Sri Lanka, Ambassador's House is a magnificently proportioned five-bedroom villa bursting with colonial charm and atmosphere. Once the residence of the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Pakistan, Iraq and Bangladesh, this majestic abode boasts abundant living and dining space, and comes with an attentive and personable staff team, making the villa an exceptional place for entertaining. Families and groups of friends will cherish time spent in these elegant surroundings soaking up the nostalgia whilst enjoying plenty of modern-day conveniences and luxuries, including an elongated pool and an expansive, dual-level roof terrace.
Few villas in fascinating Galle Fort can match the generous proportions of this historic and luxurious abode. Ambassador's House has lavishly hosted many important guests in its illustrious past and its epic proportions still make it a fabulous place for entertaining.
Seemingly timeless, Galle Fort's richly historic walls have given shelter to a dizzying array of merchants, traders, colonialists and foreign nationals over the years, who have all left their indelible mark on this seventeenth century Dutch fortress.
All five of the beautiful bedrooms at Ambassador's House feature contemporary ensuite bathrooms beautifully finished in smooth terrazzo. Romantic four-poster beds are dressed in the crispest cotton sheets and shrouded in soft mosquito netting.
