My work colleagues and I should have realised from the name Ambassador’s House (historically once the residence of the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Pakistan, Iraq and Bangladesh we understand!) that we were in for something special, but this villa took our breath away upon entering the gates. The sheer size and majestic nature of the property right in the Galle...

Listen from your window for the call to prayer from the mosque or the chanting from the Buddhist temple; Galle Fort is home to temples of three religions whose devotees all live in peace and harmony with each other. The fort is a wonderful place to explore as you wander down narrow streets and ponder at the colonial architecture; delicate fretwork, magnificent columns and never-ending red-tiled roofs.
