Perched high on a hill in the maritime city of Galle, this country house hotel was once the home of a Scottish spice merchant. Built in the 1860s during the colonial era, this impressive mansion is only 5 minutes away from the Galle city center and offers panoramic views of the Galle Fort. The Sun House exudes a relaxed atmosphere of the days gone by when the pace of life was tranquil. The large living room of the hotel is a gathering place for guests in the evening, to read, to listen to music, to have tea and cocktails. The two tropical gardens of the hotel are idyllic for relaxing in the outdoors. The Frangipani Garden leads up to the swimming pool and the Mango Garden has lovely views of the Galle harbour. You can have meals at the dining room, the veranda or in the garden under a mango tree.
The 2 suites and 5 rooms at the Sun House are comfortable and furnished with colonial furniture. Each room has a four poster bed and an elegant bathroom.
