The Sun House Sri Lanka

Overview of The Sun House

Once the home of a Scottish spice merchant, this colonial house built in the 1860’s has been converted into a small hotel which exudes a country house atmosphere. With 7 highly individual bedrooms, it is well known for its fine dining, its privacy, its eclectic collection of artwork, books and furniture. Perched high on a hill yet only a 5 minute stroll away from the centre of the seaside town of Galle, The Sun House offers panoramic views of the Galle and the world heritage site of Fort Galle.

At The Sun House we offer our guests the ideal chance of being transported back to the relaxed life styles of the planters, when a day began with a hearty breakfast and finished with a cocktail at sunset.

This glorious house has been renovated to maintain its colonial charm and elegance.

The large central living area is the heart of the house. A place where, at the end of the day, our guests can browse through the eclectic selection of books, sink into a relaxing sofa, listen to whatever music takes their fancy while enjoying a pot of up-country tea or perhaps something a little stronger like the famous “Sun House Sour”.

There are two beautiful tropical gardens; The fragrant frangipani (“temple tree”) garden, leading to the swimming pool, and the mango garden which faces a stunning view of Galle harbour. The gardens are an idyllic and serene place for guests to relax, read, write or sunbathe.

Delicious fusion cuisine is served and meals can be taken in either the dining room, on one of the house’s airy verandahs or in the garden under the mango tree.

The Sun House is a peaceful retreat offering a friendly and relaxed environment with service that is discreet yet efficient.

It is the perfect spot to explore the area and most importantly relax, unwind and eat well!
