Nestled atop the highest point of the ancient port city of Galle sits the Lady Hill originally built by the Dutch in the 18th century and later used as the Vicarage of the Church of England in the 19th century, where you will be overwhelmed by the breathtaking and panoramic “Bird’s Eye View” of the lush green countryside stretching from the tea covered slopes of the Southern foothills all the way down to merge with the brilliant blue waters of the Indian Ocean.
Entering the portals of the Lady Hill, one is treated to an architectural edifice, echoing the legacy of the ancient Colonial Dutch period, from the imposing entrance archway, down to the natural cobblestone floor. However, as you progress through the lobby, where you will be greeted with the traditional Sri Lankan welcome of “AYUBOWAN”, which translates as “May You Have Long Life”, you notice a subtle but appreciative change in the conceptual idea.
The Hotel prides itself on the provision of a very one on one personalized service, making each guest feel that their wants and needs are given individual attention and care.
Each of the upper floor Guest rooms at the Lady Hill features a private balcony sit-out offering an incredible view of the surrounding land and cityscapes. Ground floor twin bedded double rooms with open-air patio sit out and fishpond. The conceptual ambience of these rooms are contrastingly different to the upper floor rooms by way of design layout and interior décor.
The Panorama Lounge commands the best view of Galle and is the ideal place to unwind of an evening, sipping your favorite beverage or just enjoying the sunset over the horizon and watching the stars make an appearance as twilight turns to dusk. The soft music and incandescent lighting also creates a special ambience and atmosphere that is both relaxing and serene.
