Welcome to The Sun House
The Sun House exudes a tropical, colonial glamour like no other place on the island. White-floored throughout, with just five bedrooms and two suites it is impeccably-styled; the dining and sitting rooms alone boast antiques, books and furniture the envy of much larger establishments.
Tropical gardens leading to a small private pool offer an ideal afternoon retreat, while Dick’s Bar, a social-hub for the Galle crowd, justifies its nomination as one of the finest cocktail bars in the world.
The Sun House has been lauded and applauded in all the right places. Justifiably so.
The seven bedrooms are all uniquely laid out but it’s really the living areas, the book- and antique-filled sitting room and stunning dining room that are the heart of the house. Each suggest a slower style of living now passed but happily recalled. Dick’s Bar, polo-picture clad and serving signature “Sun House Sours” offers the occassional noisier evening.
The hotel is known to offer some of the best food in Sri Lanka. Guests can choose from a Sri Lankan or English breakfast and light lunches are served as, where, and when required. The dinner menu is set, with three courses that change daily. Using the freshest local supply, fish and seafood of course feature most often.
