Rampart Street


Long before the Galle Fort was universally acknowledged as a national treasure, there were some properties within these storied ramparts that were special enough to spark the imagination and birth a vision. This villa in Galle is one such catalyst, the first to be bought by a foreigner in the post-colonial era and one of the very first to be styled and restored into the sort of intimate, luxurious villa that Sri Lanka's most discerning travelers have come to expect from hotels in Galle Fort.

Most recently restored by Taru Villas, this exotic location is an elegant combination of colonial charm and modern amenities. A powerful design aesthetic weaves together the spirit of the old world, the magic of nature and the comforts of today. 'Taru Villas - Rampart Street' is also one of the few properties within the entirety of the Galle Fort that provides the luxury of a private swimming pool.

As always, the staff at this Galle villa are unobtrusive but infinitely attentive, paying attention to all the little things that are bound to make an enjoyable stay, truly memorable.


Colonial Ceylon meets modern Sri Lanka as antique furniture combines with rich fabrics and tapestry to whisk you away into a world of classical beauty and modern creature comforts. There is much delight to be derived from absorbing the deep sense of time so entrenched in everything that surrounds you, and much joy in the cool breeze and the warm sun. A refreshing dip in the villa pool is always at arm's reach and the luxury Galle rooms are perfect for spoiling yourself after a long day of sun, sightseeing and discovery.

At this accommodation in Galle, Sri Lanka guests have unlimited access to a plush TV room for relaxation if they prefer to remain indoors. For those that cannot get enough of the fresh air and the nature that surrounds them, outdoor living areas are also plentiful, refreshing and soothing.
