With its tree-fringed exterior discreetly opening onto Lighthouse Street in Galle Fort, Ambassador’s House hides its generous proportions well. Step inside, however, and be amazed by the luxurious amount of space this villa offers. Comprising two buildings connected by an inner courtyard garden, the property’s thick walls, many archways and ornate plasterwork provide constant reminders of its Dutch colonial origins whilst period furnishings elegantly reflect the era. Airy sofa-filled living spaces beneath soaring timber ceilings, a sound system with speakers built into the rafters and a choice of dining areas from ground to roof level certainly make Ambassador’s House a wonderfully historic location for entertaining.

At one time this property was the residence of the Bangladeshi Ambassador, hence its name. Many functions must surely have been held here and the various living and dining areas are certainly grand enough to host a large group of people. Families and friends will love Ambassador’s House for this reason alone but, as well as these big, social spaces it also offers many pockets of privacy for quiet, restful moments. Polished wood floors offer plenty of pottering space for toddlers, sun dappled walkways connect rooms whilst the roof terrace is easily the best place for soaking up the tropical sunshine; think lazy sundrenched afternoons, chilled beers at sunset and BBQs under a blanket of stars.

The five bedrooms at Ambassador’s are also well laid out for families and groups with the upstairs two – a double and a twin – creating an ideal family suite while the three downstairs bedrooms are perfect for couples or older kids since they open directly onto the inviting, elongated plunge pool and living areas.

Ambassador’s House comes fully serviced with a cook who prepares meals from a flexible suggestion menu, cleaning staff and a manager whose previous training as a tour guide makes him well qualified to advise or accompany you on trips around Galle and further afield. Galle Fort is literally on your doorstep; this fascinating, four-century-old living museum is scattered with an increasing number of boutiques, restaurants and museums that are best explored on foot.
