Sri Lanka - The Fortress Resort & Spa (I)

February 9, 2017

Ever thought about taking a trip to Sri Lanka?

Here are 23 reasons that would make you start to pack your bag now!

Beach, food, landscape and culture. Sri Lanka has it all.

Follow me to explore this beautiful resort and mysterious island.

Fly to capital Colombo.

I would suggest to stay one night in the city so that it doesn't get too tiring travel to the beach resort.

Corner room at the Hiltons Colombo:

Get up early the next day heading to the southern coastline, so that you don't miss the nice sunlight around noon!

Best way to get aound Sri Lanka is taxi or a tuk tuk, as it can be quite chanllenging renting a car and drive around there.


10.30AM, let's start the journey to Koggala!

After around 2.5 hours drive, we are here at the Fortress Resort & Spa:

Check-in lobby:

Weather is great today. Cant't wait to jump in the pool!

Just get lazy and get tanned ; )

Listen to the wave hits the beach and fades away, I can do this all day:

Love the design of this hotel.

The infinity pool is right on the beach:


When you are lying down this is the view in front of you:


Let's check out the room!

Sri Lanka is a bit like Thailand when it comes to hotels.

Most of the resorts here have descent space, cool design and great service, and the price is not too crazy.

The rooms are courtyard design.

So make sure to get the rooms facing the beach:

So that you will get this view from your balcony!
