The Dutch House - Galle - Sri Lanka
High on a hill, yet within minutes of the city centre, the Doornberg, or The Dutch House, has set the pace in redefining luxury accommodation for the individual traveller in Sri Lanka. Highly exclusive with only four suites, this country house, built in 1712, ensures complete privacy for its guests.
Spacious living areas, an English tropical garden complete with a croquet lawn and a treetop infinity pool provides ample space for guests to find a quiet area in which to truly unwind. Period Dutch antiques reflect its early 18th century origins but blend in well with its contemporary collection of art.
Voted as One of the Top 20 Hip Hotels of the world, The Dutch House is the ultimate indulgence in space and privacy in one of Ceylon’s most well-preserved historic mansions.
The discreet and friendly staff ensure your privacy while providing a very relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere.
Perfect for those looking for idle splendour, since doing nothing is the order of the day!
A great place for either beginning or ending your travels in Sri Lanka.
At The Dutch House breakfast is at any time. There are no time constraints and guests can leisurely enjoy either a delicious English breakfast consisting of a range of eggs with toast and marmalade, fruit plates and juices and tea/coffee or a Sri Lankan breakfast of egg curry, hoppers, seeni sambol, mung beans, and coconut sambol, all prepared to order by our chef. These are served in the courtyard, on the verandah or in the garden.
Light lunches and snacks are served throughout the day in the garden, by the pool or in your room.
