enjoyed a romantic stay at Thambili House from 12th February 2020 to 15th February 2020 From 12th February 2020 to 15th February 2020

This historic house in the centre of Galle is a little oasis away from the heat of the fort. The period furnishings and decor are outstanding you feel like you are stepping back in time. Situated very centrally you are within walking distance of everything you want to do within the fort and you are positioned in just the right place to watch the sunset from the walls. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very spacious with stone bath and shower overhead. Don't think there was a plug for the bath so you probably can't use it. Beautiful upstairs balcony overlooking the frangipani tree in the courtyard. Manager Malindu was very attentive and always happy to help. He offered to post our postcards for us as post office.

Take a look inside Thambili House

Thambili House is a 300-years-old colonial holiday holiday retreat located in Galle Fort on the South Coast of Sri Lanka. The house was owned by a Dutch cinnamon trader back in the colonial times and it has been renovated to meet modern-day standards of luxury living. Staying right in the heart of the historic Galle Fort is something truly special and it is quite a rare opportunity to seize. With arches, pillars, wood lattices and breezy verandas, this place exudes old-world-charm, lavishness, refinement and luxury. An amazing stay!


The location of Thambili House is simply amazing right in the heart of Galle Fort. This historic place was an important trading port in the 16th century and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These days, Galle attracts artists, free spirits and wanderers - the town has a special ambience and there are lovely cafes and boutique shops. Go check out Galle Fort Lighthouse and stroll around the fort’s walls around sunset time. Visit the museums and go out for dinner - Galle is an important landmark and around the city, there are beautiful beaches and famous tourist towns to visit as well as gorgeous national parks where you can spot wildlife.
