The Sun and Dutch House  Price rating for The Sun and Dutch HousePrice rating for The Sun and Dutch HousePrice rating for The Sun and Dutch House South Coast



Climb the leafy road for 5 minutes out of Galle town into the city’s desirable residential area overlooking the harbour.  Here are 2 marvellous colonial homes reborn as boutique hotels.

The Sun House`s welcoming courtyard houses a few vintage cars to tour guests around the city.  Each of the flawless suites looks onto the immaculately kept frangipani and hibiscus gardens.

The sitting room is a large and cosy setting for pre-dinner drinks, a book from the large library or admiring the antiques and  art by Saskia accompanied by light music.  Step out onto the terrace and down to the sun-loungers that surround the infinity pool.  Your host ‘Henry’ has created wonderful interiors and ensures her team of efficient staff will exceed your service expectations.

Just next door, guests can enjoy further luxury and privacy at ‘Doornberg’. Once a boys’ orphanage, this large colonial villa curls around the well maintained croquet lawn. The discreet and friendly staff ensure your privacy yet provide a very relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere.

The Dutch House infinity pool serves just 4 suites and guests can also relax on their private terraces.



  • A range of sophisticated accommodation from deluxe doubles to private suites.
  • An excellent chef with a daily menu changes.
  • In-suite massage after a day in the hot city can be the perfect aperitif to dinner.


  • Dining is occasionally a group affair and will disappoint romantic couples desiring candlelit privacy, especially Doornberg guests. Join in the sociable spirit and savour the romance.
  • Despite, the villa's luxury, Galle has little to offer beyond a 2 day stay and guests may prefer to move onto a beach villa.
