    Our opinion

    41 Lighthouse Street is a boutique villa, which offers a charming blend of traditional features and contemporary elegance, perfect for larger parties looking for exclusive hire.

    Hotel description

    Named after the road on which it stands, 41 Lighthouse Street is hidden away on the main thoroughfare through Galle’s famous Dutch Fort – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The building is a renovated Dutch Villa, home to a luxury boutique hotel available for exclusive rental at the centre of the bustle in this corner of Galle. Indoor and outdoor lounging areas are designed with guests in mind and there is a perfect balance between original charm and contemporary elegance. Living quarters are warm and welcoming, ripe for communal life with cosy sofas, daybeds and dining tables. An intimate walled garden is accessible from here, where every inch is filled with covered terraces surrounding a small outdoor pool, which is a privileged addition given the villa’s location. Exotic plant life borders the garden, while vibrant blossoms decorate the courtyard with a touch of eastern flare. The three luxurious double bedrooms are accessible from a balcony overlooking the pool and garden. Each is drenched in natural light, while a colour scheme of pristine whites gives the impression of space and cleanliness. The muslin-draped four poster bed of the Master Suite is quite romantic, while a cosy seating area and private balcony provides some privacy away from the communal living areas. More than just a luxury villa, the personalised service of 41 Lighthouse Street includes a kitchen staff who will prepare evening meals, although the kitchen is available for guests to cook for themselves. 41 Lighthouse is a luxury boutique villa for larger parties seeking private and exclusive accommodation in the heart of Galle’s Dutch Fort.
