The Fort Bazaar

Historical 17th century town house

Set amidst ageing coral walls on historic Church Street an atmospheric central thoroughfare, this stunning hotel is home to 18 stylish rooms and suites, a buzzy restaurant and bar, a library, cinema and spa. 

Located in the heart of Galle Fort, the Fort Bazaar is perfect for guests looking to soak up the Fort’s legendary atmosphere, a spot of gem shopping or walking the walls of the fort's 300 year old walls.  The Fort Bazaar is fresh and contemporary, and its chic understated interiors feel distinctly Middle Eastern, as does its fabulous cuisine, both of which richly reflect the fort’s Moorish history. 

The Fort Bazaar is yet to recieve its liquor license although they have an open door policy so you are free to take your own.
