Sri Lanka Luxury Escape for Less at Fortress Resort and Spa
If I was the kind of person to have a bucket list, which I’m not, then Sri Lanka would be at the top of that list – along with South Korea. But I have to confess that it’s primarily the food that interests me, along with the culture and history, which I wouldn’t mind swatting up on from a breezy balcony overlooking the ocean.
Where You’ll Stay at the Fortress Resort and Spa
This Sri Lanka luxury escape at the Fortress Resort and Spa includes accommodation in a spacious Fortress Room for two adults and up to two children aged under five (with meals included for the kids), daily buffet breakfasts, three-course dinners at the White restaurant, a nightly cocktail per adult, a 25% discount on all other a la carte meals across the resort, and a 30-minute massage per adult per day.
If you prefer to enjoy evening sundowners with sea views from your private balcony, it’s AUD $2,199 for an Ocean Room, with all the other inclusions above, which is valued at up to AUD $6,892. There’s also a Beach Room, which allows you to step directly into your private garden with unspoiled views of the Indian Ocean.
All rooms have king beds, generous-sized open-plan bathrooms with deep bathtubs, flat-screen TVs and a Bluetooth surround sound system, so don’t forget to bring your own music.
What You Can Do At the Fortress Resort and Spa
Your Sri Lanka luxury escape is the Fortress Resort and Spa, located along the sandy shores of Koggala in Southern Sri Lanka, the Fortress Resort and Spa is blessed with beautiful ocean views, a palm-lined beach, a big swimming pool, and lush, shaded tropical gardens.
Sri Lankan food is heavenly and there are three restaurants, including the resort’s signature restaurant, White; Duo, a romantic candlelit spot with a cellar of 2,000 wines; and Salty Snapper, a casual seafood restaurant in the resort’s garden.
Because Sri Lanka is famous for its tea, there’s also a tea-lounge, where you can sample premium handpicked teas, learn about the history of Ceylon tea, and observe a traditional tea-making ceremony. Come sundown, you can enjoy your complimentary cocktails at the sea bar, which boasts sublime sea vistas.
There’s also an impressive on-site spa, which is where you can enjoy your complimentary 30-minute head or foot massage. The spa was a winner at the World Luxury Spa Awards in 2017 and also offers traditional Ayurvedic treatments that combine massage and handpicked oils to match your needs.
If you’re taking children, there’s a complimentary kids club and a babysitting service can also be booked in the evening, although additional fees apply.
What You Can See and Do in Galle and Beyond
The splendid Fortress Resort and Spa is just a 15-minute drive from the historic city of Galle and its splendid old fort, when you’ve had enough relaxation and are ready to absorb some of the Sri Lanka’s intriguing history and culture.
Aside from spending a day exploring the famous fort and the fascinating National Museum, housed in a handsome 17th century Dutch building, there are all sorts of other things to see and do in Galle and beyond, from experiencing tea and cinnamon plantations, to discovering the traditional lifestyle of the stilt fishermen, and visiting the Yatagala Rock Cave Temple.
Lovers of nature and hiking can wander the walking tracks of Sinharaja Forest Reserve, which offers opportunities for wildlife spotting or get up close to sea turtles at the hatchery, where you can learn about this endangered species and find out how you can help.
