Fort Printers


Fort Printers - Description

The Fort Printers is an elegant private hotel situated in the heart of Galle Fort. Originally an 18th century mansion, the house used to serve as a college, and then a traditional printing company; hence the name Fort Printers. It initially comprised of 5 suites, but now offers a total of 13 suites with the addition of two heritage villas in 2013


In homage to this villa’s past role as a college, the suites are aptly named The Headmaster’s, The Prefect’s, History, Geography and Arts. All rooms are elegantly furnished with platform double beds with mosquito nets, hardwood floors and a mix of contemporary and classic furniture and silk drapes. Rooms on the first floor have lovely views of the rooftops of Fort houses, Galle Harbour and the Lighthouse.

Each of the villas may be booked for exclusive use or as separate suites.



The Fort Printers offers an excellent cuisine with no set menu – the chefs plan daily meals based on guests’ preferences, with an imaginative menu made using fresh seafood and organic local produce. The chefs specialise in Mediterranean inspired cuisine, along with traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry. As seafood is aplenty here, sashimi, grilled or seared tuna, prawns, lobster and other fish dishes are to be expected. Guests can eat in the grand dining room which occupies the entire length of the mansion, or the frangipani courtyard that overlooks the narrow lap pool.
