FGLF Announces 2018 Bronze Partner – Fortaleza

The Fairway Galle Literary Festival (FGLF) is pleased to announce Fortaleza as a Bronze Partner of the 2018 festival taking place in Galle, Sri Lanka from January 24th-28th, 2018.


Located within the Galle Fort UNESCO heritage site, Fortaleza is a collection of five boutique hotels each with their own unique story and charm.

  • A spice warehouse from the early 1700’s.
  • Three colonial Dutch merchants’ residences
  • A lawyer’s chambers

These unique properties were all carefully chosen and painstakingly restored to offer travellers extra-ordinary accommodation in Galle Fort.

Likewise the Fortaleza Restaurant & Bar takes its patrons on a remarkable culinary journey. Our menu features an array of Western and Asian favorites that have been infused with a typically ‘Fortaleza’ flavor.

when is the programme of events, authors etc going to be available? I have emailed you and received no response from you. I am making a special trip from Australia to attend the Festival.
I would like to have knowledge of what is on offer and I would certainly appreciate hearing from you.
