Galle Art Deco Hotel

Who knew that within an old Dutch settlement in Sri Lanka from the 1600s there would be a couple of dozen beautiful Art Deco buildings? A mix of houses, apartments and hotels are tucked away between blocks of traditional colonial tropical architecture.

One of the best examples of the Art Deco style is this stunning and well-restored hotel. It rivals anything you'd see in South Beach.

Through a custom-shaped circular window. The elegant staircase.

The inviting dining room, a feast for the eyes. The window halfway up the staircase, totally custom and a shape that emulates the sails of ships in the harbor. Nifty.

Another look at the hotel front, complete with elaborate street side fence.
