This place is simply stunning. You feel regal just walking around the house (palace?). Looking out of the master bedroom you see over the ramparts and out across the ocean. You get the same view from the windowside tub in the huge ensuite bathroom. The dining/living area is open so you don't feel like you're inside, which is great when it's sunny but was also incredible when a sudden intense rain shower hit and we experienced it without getting wet - exhilarating. I thought the location was perfect - on the edge of Galle Fort so that you're within walking distance of everything but without any noise, hoards of people trawling past etc. Loads to see in the maze of old streets just behind the house which lead through the Fort. The staff were absolutely wonderful, always smiling and incredibly helpful. They cooked us some quite spectacular meals. If we go back to Galle Fort, we will definitely be staying here again. Fingers crossed.

After exploring everything Sri Lanka has to offer from temples and tea plantations to national parks and safari, Rampart Villa was the perfect hideaway with its tranquility, privacy and exclusivity to return to. The in-house staff were incredibly charming and welcoming and catered to all our needs be it cooking a delicious and authentic Sri Lankan meal to organising a TukTuk for our travels. The abundant living space was incredibly designed and furnished with elegant antiques, fit for royalty. The master bedroom has a four poster king-size bed in the center with views of the rampart and sea. The en-suite has a huge, luxurious bath also overlooking the sea. I couldn't think of a way to improve the place, it's truly special and I would absolutely love to return.

It was absolute paradise staying at this house. The rooms are all huge with amazingly comfortable beds and on suite bathrooms. It's opened planned setting meant that you could eat and relax in the shade but still be outside. Galle Fort is a magical place and Manoj who runs the house looked after us so well and cooked delicious meals. I highly recommend it!

The house is restful, peaceful, cool and full of history. Amitha’s cooking will be calling from afar. Manoj was wonderful too—he goes far beyond the call of duty in his care and affection for our children.
