Fort Bazaar is a chic, luxury boutique hotel & spa with a superb location at the very centre of Galle’s 17th-century fort in Sri Lanka. There are hotels with a rich history. And then there is Fort Bazaar – part of history. This enchanting bolthole sits pretty on a narrow cobbled street, among the imposing ramparts and colonial-era buildings of the UNESCO-listed Galle Fort. It took 11 years to restore the former merchant’s mansion – and it paid off. A huddle of whitewashed buildings is arranged around an open-air central courtyard, scented by a riot of frangipani flowers and illuminated by glowing Moorish lamps after dark – a scattering of cushion-topped chairs are heavenly chill-out spots. While the architecture and interiors nod to its colonial past, a contemporary twist updates its 17th-Century heritage – think hand-woven Sri Lankan fabrics and lots of pale wood.
Just 18 rooms create an intimate vibe; the 15 Bazaar and Banyan Rooms are calming cocoons with pared-back, Scandi-style interiors; the latter with the added perk of a private balcony or terrace. For a slice of luxury, plump for one of the three Upper Suites – sleek dens with oodles of space and fort views, along with original features; all wood beams and pitched ceilings. An inviting restaurant sees locals and guests mingling over plates of fish tagine or black pork curry, against the comforting hum of the streets beyond the wide-open doors.
A tranquil hideaway on the banks of Koggala Lake. Sleeping up to 30 guests in eleven stylish suites and villas, and catering for up to 100, Tri is the perfect location for celebrations large and small. Experience uninterrupted lake views, private open-air plunge pools and our cosy, romantic guest rooms in the cinnamon-wood-covered hilltop water tower.
From lake to table, and garden to plate, dining at Tri is as organic and seasonal as it gets. The guiding culinary concept under chef Neil Wager’s expertise is fresh Sri Lankan fusion: contemporary, creative dishes that are as delicious and appealing as they are nutritious and local, all presented on unique handmade crockery. Food and drink is a highlight of staying at Tri – for guests of the hotel and those keen to visit us for lunch or dinner. Light snacks are available by the pool and in your villa.
The relaxed living room menu offers a fusion of Sri Lankan and international cuisines throughout the day, from a trio of mini hoppers and short eats to platters of fresh local sushi. The restaurant boasts an ever-changing multi-course menu of seasonal produce and local dishes. Starting with kurrakan roti and cashew nut butter, guests are invited on a gastronomic journey of local flavours, from a maldive fish hopper amuse-bouche to Tri cinnamon quail or lagoon crab curry, finishing with smoked wattalapam panna cotta or soursop doughnut for dessert. Each delicious dinner ends with a selection of Sri Lanka’s purest silver- and gold-tip teas.
The yoga shala is an elegant, elevated retreat space for the physical and spiritual practice of Quantum Yoga. This powerful platform offers individualised and dynamic self-healing through yoga, breath and meditation.
Wellbeing at Tri is rather special. Overlooking the treetops, the two treatment rooms with cool white terrazzo walls, natural slate floors and large windows, and sheltered relaxation space, promise tranquility in which to enjoy expert Ayurvedic and other therapies.
Light and airy, the spa comprises two ensuite treatment rooms with cool white terrazzo walls, natural slate floors and large windows that catch the breeze and overlook the treetops. A sheltered relaxation area – with handpicked granite flooring and soothing water feature is flanked by stone walls, tall bamboo and banks of scented white flowers. The tranquil steam cavern has white terrazzo walls and an outdoor shower surrounded by nature.
There are some beautiful trails to discover from Tri. Just head out from our gate and follow your nose for some free-wheeling exploration of the countryside. We can also provide guides for some longer rides to the southern coast.
Alive with birds and tiny islands rich in tropical greenery, Koggala Lake in Galle District in the Southern Province feels like you’re the very first to discover this oasis of untouched nature. Take a tour of the lagoon in our boat, find a Buddhist temple and visit cinnamon farmers at their home and the only others you might wave hello to are a fisherman or two on the water. The abundant mangrove-fringed lake provides them with prawns, crabs, fish and even oysters.
