Fort Bazaar HERO
Discover Fort Bazaar

Set in the heart of the 17th-century, colonial-Dutch city Galle, Fort Bazaar Hotel is a fresh and boldly contemporary hotel with a Moorish vibe. It’s in a well-preserved part of town surrounded by colonial-era buildings with museums, churches, temples, boutiques, and cafés steps away. Beginning its life as a 17th-century merchant's home, the hotel is now light, modern, and chic inside. Enjoy spa treatments, afternoon tea in the lovely courtyard and strolls to nearby beaches.

The 15 Bazaar and Banyan bedrooms radiate off a peaceful flagstone-tiled courtyard, shaded by an age-old mango tree. They feature king-sized four-poster Balinese beds, and ensuite shower rooms. The 3 Upper Suites are more decadent with lounge areas, freestanding bathtubs, and fort-view terraces. The hotel restaurant, Church Street Social, kitted out with a blend of metallic décor and historic touches, bustles with hotel guests and locals and serves a melting pot of cuisines. Spend your time in Galle, winding up and down the Fort’s lanes and watching the sunset, or whales, from the fort walls.
