Tamarind Hill, Galle
Who doesn’t want to stay in an 18th century manor house a 10-minute drive from the majestic ramparts of the Galle Fort? Sri Lanka rarely fails to inspire and the lush grounds surrounding this boutique hotel in Tamarind Hill is no exception. The aristocratic history is woven throughout, with Queen Ann and colonial furnishings, a tantalising tea menu, and Balinese inspired spa that deliver the healing touch with virginal coconut oils and salts from the depths of the sea.
Being perched so close to the ebb and flow of the Giniganga River invites guests out to drift downstream with fishing trips and canoe journeys. History lovers will adore the nearby proximity of the Galle Fort with its thick set walls and vivid history. The Udawalawe National Park is worthy of a day trip for animal lovers seeking safari memories.
Your Room + Facilities
With 10 rooms to choose from, Tamarind Hills knows how to serve up an elegant history with the pleasures of modern living. Expect to surf the web from your vintage four poster bed, and sip a treat from the mini bar as you peruse the pillow menu. 24-hour butler service is another fine touch for when you desire a late-night snack or breakfast on the balcony.
Few islands in the world offer the diversity of Sri Lanka. From the vibrant + chaotic capital of Colombo, the central plains of the Cultural Triangle, tea plantations, exotic wildlife in national parks to coastlines of palm-fringed crescent shaped beaches.
On a different latitude but just as diverse and a little more cosmopolitan, Singapore has redefined itself as one of the great culinary cities of the world to be enjoyed over several days + not just a stopover.
