The Dutch House is located on Sri Lanka’s exotic south coast which is quietly becoming the Riviera of choice for the world’s most discerning and inquisitive travellers. Conveniently located to the UN World Heritage site of Galle Fort, Buddhist temples, rainforests, lowland tea plantations, wildlife reserves and some of the most fabulous beaches in the Indian ocean.

Set high on a hill over looking Galle Harbour, The Dutch House is the perfect place to base yourself to set off exploring the local & chaotic markets and villages of the Southern Province.

The Dutch House is located next door to its sister property The Sun House - “Sri Lanka’s original boutique hotel…”

Getting around

Should you decide to leave the peace and tranquility of The Dutch House and set off exploring Galle and the historic Fort, we recommend that you use one of the local Tuk Tuks to get around in & explore.

Our staff will arrange this for you on request.

The Dutch House is within walking distance of the centre of Galle and the Galle Fort. Walking around the Fort is the best way to soak in its history and to explore the narrow streets, laneways and historic ramparts.

Also available is our restored vintage Rover.

Getting there & away

Distances between locations in Sri Lanka are not that far, yet the time taken by road to reach a destination can be a somewhat tiring experience.

Our team at The Sun House can arrange transfers for you by either chauffer driven air conditioned vehicles, sea plane, steam train or helicopter.

The Dutch House is a 4 hour drive south from Colombo’s international airport or for guests coming from the centre of the city of Colombo, a 3 hour drive.

Rather than travelling by road why not transfer directly from your international flight onto Sri Lankan Airlines Air Taxi and arrive in Galle (Koggala airport) in just 30 mins. Koggala airport is only a 15 minute drive from The Dutch House.

It is the ideal way to travel in style, comfort and luxury at an affordable price.
