Ambassador's House – Galle 5 bedroom luxury villa Ambassador's House – Galle 5 bedroom luxury villa

Few villas in fascinating Galle Fort can match the generous proportions of this historic and luxurious abode. Formerly the residence of the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Pakistan, Iraq and Bangladesh, 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.

These days the villa enshrines relaxation. Pluck a book or magazine from a cabinet or table top and sink into the deep sofas of the living room. Enjoy a wonderful seafood lunch in the palm-shaded courtyard cooked by your in-house chef, and after a well-deserved nap take a dip in the inviting pool. As the end of the day beckons and the temperature cools, take a leisurely stroll amongst the fort’s ancient cobbled streets, culminating at the grass-tufted ramparts to watch the sun sink into the sea.

By evening, the villa’s soft lighting creates the perfect ambiance for poolside cocktails. At dinnertime, our chef will dazzle you with yet another delicious spread selected from a menu of Western and Sri Lankan dishes: whether a formal feast or a relaxed family get together, every meal at Ambassador’s House is guaranteed to be special. Our friendly staff will happily do their utmost to help youngsters make the most of their stay, and our sociable TV snug, furnished with a big comfortable sofa, is a firm favourite with kids and adults alike.

Our staff will provide plenty of inspiration for those who wish to explore, and we encourage you to seek their advice. Beyond the quaint narrow streets, fashionable boutiques and charming cafes of the UNESCO-World-Heritage-listed fort, the wider region of Galle boasts many excellent restaurants, eclectic shops and fascinating places to visit. What’s more, within a ten-minute drive you can be relaxing on one of Sri Lanka’s idyllic beaches, beside a warm, turquoise sea.
