Location description from owner

Southern Province region

Galle lies on the south-west tip of Sri Lanka, 75 miles from Columbo. The town experiences a hot tropical climate, and the monthly temperature remains around 29C - 31C throughout the year, with monsoons from the Indian Ocean affecting the levels of rainfall and humidity.

Day Trips
The surrounding areas offer plenty of attractions such as paddy fields and lush plantations, all of which can be seen on scenic drives around the region. The bustling city of Columbo is accessible by taxi, train and bus, with other day trips including Kalutara Temple, the Yala Wildlife Sanctuary, and Koggala Lake, which is ideal for bird-watching, and home to a Museum of Folk, Art and Culture

The old town of Galle has plenty of opportunity for shopping, and in particular specialises in jewellery and gem-cutting, as well as selling plenty of fabrics, furnishings, and arts and crafts such as woodcarvings.

“Truly amazing - the best guest house we have ever stayed in”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2016

An exceptional guest house. We rented the whols place and felt really at home. It is immaculate - a beautifully restored old house with antique furniture. Bedrooms spacious with 4 posters with full mosquito nets (not that there were many), amazing bathrooms. Rooms were cleaned every day and beds made, with frequent fresh sheets and towels. The majordomo Manju and his staff look after everything perfectly (he even has a tuk-tuk for guests -at a modest price). Food is amazing - you just agree what you'd like - the cooking is fantastic and they can make lots of Sri Lankan specialities (you just pay for the shopping, bills are provided). Location is very good, a perfect quiet location overlooking paddy fields (with ibis, buffalo and exotic birds). The swimming pool is immaculate and a great place to relax. Nearby are good beaches, but when at home you are away from the tourist trail. Also within easy reach is an ancient rock temple, and Galle. We loved to wander about in Galle fort and see sunsets from the ramparts or the balcony bar of the Rampart Hotel. Galle itself has interesting bustling streets and an extraordinary department store that sells 'everything'! This house is exceptional in every way!

“Magical stunning oasis, tasteful colonial granduer”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2015

My partner and I stayed for 10 magical days at Polheena estate in early September. From the minute the gates opened to reveal the smiling staff waiting to greet us, the beautiful grounds and the stunning villa, our hearts were sold. The villa has been incredibly tastefully furnished and renovated to reflect granduer of old but great living for today. The estate is like an oasis, the pool area serene and peaceful, where we enjoyed both brekfast and dinner. The food was amazing - we chose to stay in mostly rather than eat out! The manager and the staff were so incredibly friendly, kind and helpful. when it came time to leave we were both rather emotional, such was the impact of our stay, we are already planning our trip back! if we could rate it more than 5 we would!

“Just fantastic”

“An amazing villa in an amazing location”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2015

“All round awesome place”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

absolutely recommend this place. The rooms are beautifully decorated with Antiques, the pool and garden are fabulous, the food was the best we ha in all of our trip and the surrounding areas really gave us true insight into rural life in Sri Lanka.

“Absolutely fabulous - we will be back.”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

Stunning beautifully furnished colonial house with four poster beds and wonderfully luxurious bathrooms, fabulous pool and gardens, and superb staff. The meals were out of this world (e.g. freshly caught prawns the size of lobsters on the bbq), the service fantastic, the children in their element with the pool, croquet, walks in the neighboring paddy fields and local villages, searching for peacocks etc. The beaches nearby are truly special, and Galle Forte itself a gem. We fell in love with Sri Lanka and will certainly be back.
