About the property:

Originally built in the early 1800s for a Dutch merchant & his wife, Lighthouse Street by Taru Villas is strategically located in the heart of the historic Galle Fort, providing convenient access to all the sights that this charming and vibrant UNESCO Heritage Site has to offer. Every part of the Fort is within radius of a 10-15 minute leisurely walk. 
The villa has been sympathetically restored by Taru and her team, using an eclectic mix of traditional features, antique furnishings and a clean, modern aesthetic. The result is an authentic and stylishly beautiful colonial villa, a deeply comforting place to relax and restore your energies after a few hours sight-seeing or a day trip outside of the Fort. The bijou roof terrace affords romantic sunset views over the Fort skyline, down to the Ramparts and Indian Ocean on the horizon– a perfect place to wind down with a bottle of wine.
Lighthouse Street is fully staffed and a variety of meals ranging from traditional Sri Lankan to Modern International favourites, can be ordered from an extensive A la carté menu, therefore please do not bring in food/meals purchased from outside.
