Overview

Mango House is a charming, stylish boutique hotel in the heart of historic Galle, on the south west coast of Sri Lanka. Friendly and intimate, this tranquil Dutch colonial style property offers just seven rooms along with pleasant and airy communal areas, including a lovely verdant garden. Situated within Galle Fort and in easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, and historic sights, Mango House will appeal to travellers looking for a mid-range yet well-presented, characterful and atmospheric property in a superb central location.

The hotel offers an extensive, varied breakfast served by attentive staff in its high- ceilinged dining room where pale walls contrast with richly coloured textiles. Guests can also opt to have breakfast on their private balcony or terrace. Facilities include a well-stocked DVD library which guests are invited to use. Outside, there are peaceful courtyard areas and a leafy, tranquil garden filled with palms and fruit trees. Mango House has a strong eco-friendly ethos and actively participates in recycling and energy saving initiatives.

The accommodation comprises seven well-appointed guest rooms, featuring a blend of traditional furniture and contemporary artwork. Simply but stylishly furnished, each modestly sized room contains a double four poster bed draped with mosquito nets, a desk and wardrobe, and a contemporary ensuite bathroom with a rainfall shower. All rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans, satellite TV, a DVD player, and hot drink facilities. Most units have French doors opening onto a private balcony or terrace. Ground floor rooms have private courtyards and those on the upper floor come with a private balcony with lovely views across the rooftops of Galle Fort. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in all rooms and throughout the hotel.

Children of all ages are warmly welcome at Mango House. The hotel offers a family room which comfortably sleeps four guests and comes with additional living space including a mezzanine loft area. The family unit comprises two double four poster beds with mosquito nets, a modern ensuite bathroom, air conditioning, fans, satellite TV and DVD player. Guests under five years of age are accommodated free of charge when sharing a standard room and bed with their parents, with reductions offered for older children sharing with parents.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
