Accommodation at Villa No. 39 Galle Fort, Sri Lanka
No. 39’s three bedrooms are spread across two floors, with the master room upstairs. Each bed is adorned with Egyptian cotton sheets and luxurious padded bedcovers, and all bedrooms offer both air conditioning and ceiling fans and feature modern ensuite bathrooms fitted with showers.
Being the only bedroom on the first floor of the house, No. 39’s master room is exceptionally private. Breezily opening through twin sets of folding doors onto a terrazzo-floored galley, the room overlooks the vine-draped red-tiled rooftops of the fort. Swathed in soft netting, the grand four-poster queen-size bed sits atop polished mahogany floorboards and beneath an impressive pitched timber ceiling.
The master room is accessed via a small fan-cooled reading lounge furnished with rattan day beds.
This airy double bedroom opens onto the lush garden and a pillared veranda towards the back of the house. Sitting atop polished floors is a queen-size four-poster bed wrapped in soft netting, positioned so you can lie back and watch the squirrels and chattering birds in the garden.
Located just off the living room, this terrazzo-floored bedroom overlooks historic Lighthouse Street through wide folding windows. A queen-sized bed takes pride of place in the room, complemented by a matching antique wardrobe.
