Take a look inside The Fort Printers

The Fort Printers is a boutique hotel with three buildings – one main and two annexes. Formerly an 18th century mansion which became a college, later converted into a printing press, and now transformed into a hotel, The Fort Printers epitomizes colonial, old-world architecture and contemporary chic. Spacious interiors are appointed with predominantly finely finished, in-vogue wood furnishings accompanied by period fixtures and pieces, as well as adorned with some of the original printing machines. Amenities are discriminately five star – for all-out guest delight and enjoyment. Truly, the Fort Printers affords you stylish vacation living with a historic and quaint ambience.


The Fort Printers hotel is located in Galle Fort – a 16th century Dutch fort which has the distinction of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the hotel, you can spend the day at nearby beaches which are teeming with marine life. You can also go see traditional Sri Lankan villages and temples, as well as go nature tripping at rainforests, gem mines and tea plantations.
