Blue Beach Galle, hotel in Galle

Set in Galle, 500 metres from Bonavista Beach, Blue Beach Galle offers accommodation with a fitness centre, free private parking, a terrace and a restaurant.

Stayed here for 1 night. Not a bad location If you don’t mind walking. It’s about 25/30 minute walk to Galle or Unawatuna as it’s located in the middle of both. Just be aware that it’s main roads in some places so not always ideal to walk along!

Green Casa, hotel in Galle

Green Casa is situated in Galle, 1.7 km from Galle Fort. Free private parking is available on site. Each air-conditioned room comes with a flat-screen TV.

An unexpected stay! We had to replan our trip last minute due to a cancellation on a connecting flight. We had plans to get to Kandy / Ella, but they were all scuppered. But we found ourselves in Galle, where we had wanted to visit but knew our initial plans would not afford. So as they say, every cloud.... The Green Casa is a beauty to behold. A 150 year Dutch merchant villa that's been redesigned - keeping the old features in tact, with nostalgia added from an age long gone and the feel of the old colonial days. There has been a lot of respect in maintaining the history of the architecuture. Old pictures taken by the owner bring to light the history of communities in Sri Lanka. We arrived to Mohan, who gave is the warmest Sri Lankan. He looks after the property and the guests there, and made us feel so welcomed. We arrived to welcome drinks, and felt so spoilt during our 2 night stay. They somehow knew that we had a difficult trip to get there, and even if they didn't, we felt they knew. Thank you to the team at Green Casa! It was the most beautiful stay!

    GALLE FORT is great for a one day visit.

    GALLE FORT is great for a one day visit. The town is small and some shops are repetitive, with the same items for sale, but there are a few unique shops and restaurants which make a visit worthwhile. Sunsets are beautiful; walk along the top of fort walls. Take a tuk tuk to the local fish market just outside of town for vibrant local life and walk back. We stayed overnight which made the visit more relaxing.

    Galle is a city with a combination of a Dutch period fort and beach with all modern facilities. Dutch Fort is a very live well, reserved place with excellent attractions and choices. Walking over the museums and art galleries located in preserved ancient buildings is an excellent experience. fairly good nightlife available with ample choices of fine dining. within Fort, they charge higher prices due to high tourist demand. yet affordable eateries, supermarkets and facilities are available out of Fort within walking distance. Also people in Galle are very friendly, professional and helpful .

    We loved this small cozy hotel which was really worth the money. The pool was clean and wonderfully framed by vegetation. The monkeys jumped around in the trees and we got wonderful pictures of them. The 5 minute tuktuk ride to Galle fort, a beautiful area with lots of sights, eateries and shopping was free. At the hotel they had an unusual number of breakfast options. Everything from Sri Lankan breakfast to different pancakes and waffles and fresh fruits. The beds were comfortable and the area around the hotel was very quiet!

    The accommodation clearly exceeded our expectations. There are only two rooms in the complex, which makes it pleasantly quiet. Despite the small complex, there is always a janitor who is there for every request and serves breakfast very lovingly. In general, both the owner and the janitor were extremely friendly. Last but not least, the room and the pool were very modern, clean and inviting. The bed was also the most comfortable of the Sri Lanka trip so far. We liked the hotel so much that we extended our stay.

    The hotel is right in the middle of the jungle and each room is a standalone bungalow so you really are not in the middle of tourists (and there are many in Galle). Rooms are very large and very well decorated, especially the bathroom, which is just amazing. It is super comfortable and very clean. The swimming pool is great. If you tell them in advance, they can cook lunch or dinner for you and it is excellent Sri Lankan. Breakfast was also very good and a mix of continental and Sri Lankan.

Quiet, relaxed, very small and charming- feel of a boutique hotel Price wise, for high quality of rooms and service as well as location inside the Fort and easy walking distance to all sightseeing, its a very good deal.

    If you are looking for a budget stay in Galle this is a great option. The room is clean and comfortable and has everything you need in a great location. Moreover the owner and his family are extremely nice and helpful. They make you feel at home with them. It is very difficult to find local food inside the fort at affordable prices. After looking for hours we saw their food offerings and they have great Sri Lankan food and beverages at very fair prices.

Room is very clean and tidy with all basic amenities such as mini fridge, locker etc. The bed was so comfy with clean linen. Specious and clean both rooms. Galle Fort is just 3 minutes tuktuk ride from the villa. Service was excellent. All in all, the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka in our entire trip.

    - The place is a few minutes of drive (5 mins) away from Galle, one of the main cities in the south side of Sri Lanka - 5-10 minutes drive to beautiful Unawatuna beach. - A brand new place. Therefore, all the items of furniture are pretty new. - The place is so comfortable and safe. - Never experienced any noise even though the place is in a residential area.
