New boutique hotel The Fort Bazaar joins The Sri Lanka Collection

The Sri Lanka Collection has announced the addition of its newest Collection member, The Fort Bazaar. This exciting 18-room boutique hotel located in the heart of the 17th century UNESCO World Heritage Site of Galle Fort, on the island’s southern coast, is scheduled to open in November.

The addition of The Fort Bazaar – sister hotel to the award-winning (Condé Nast Traveller Gold List 2015) The Wallawwa near Colombo – into The Sri Lanka Collection’s fold brings the number of properties represented by The Sri Lanka Collection to 13. The Fort Bazaar will be the first boutique hotel the company will represent in prestigious Galle Fort.

The Fort Bazaar and The Wallawwa are owned and operated by Teardrop Hotels, and share similar characteristics of being small, intimate and atmospheric hotels with high standards of service, comfort and food set amidst sensitively converted historic buildings key to Sri Lanka’s colonial past. Similar in style to The Wallawwa, The Fort Bazaar will offer a selection of luxurious rooms and suites alongside exceptional facilities, including a restaurant, bar, cinema, 15-metre swimming pool and ‘Z Spa’.

“As Teardrop Hotels expands into a small collection of luxury properties around Sri Lanka, we’re delighted that our second hotel, The Fort Bazaar, has become a member of The Sri Lanka Collection,” commented Teardrop Hotels Managing Director Henry Fitch. “The UK market is of great importance to us and being supported by Eleanor and her team will undoubtedly help keep agents and operators fully informed of our news at The Fort Bazaar and The Wallawwa, as well as Teardrop’s tea bungalow openings in 2016.”
