Girl gone Galle.

It's been a while, StyledBUYDivya is back and will bring to you the best finds available online, along with occasionally travel tips !
I have spent the last 2 weeks in the fabulous ' Emerald Isle'. Sri Lanka is certainly one of the best places for a chilled out laid back beach vacay. The food is to die for, crystal clear waters, white powdery sand, water sports and jungle adventures!










EAT
We rushed off our flight and made it to The Ministry of Crab in time for dinner - definitely a must do in Colombo.
Galle fort is charming with lovely boutique hotels and some great eateries. The Fortaleza restaurant is  the perfect stop for a quick bite while shopping!
Thalpe Beach has the best crab curry south of Galle - a beach fronted swimming pool makes for a wonderful lazy day.WB house next door is where the only authentic Italian food is to be found. The lovely owners Massimo and Nonna import their meat and cheese from Italy - scrumptious!



                                          Fortaleza
WB house
STAY 
The Fort Bazaar is a beautiful hotel in the hear of Galle Fort, impeccable decor and super comfortable rooms.
WB house has just 2 suites, with the Italian restaurant, a natural lagoon in front of this property makes it the best spot for safe swimming.
The Fortress - pure indulgence in Habbardua - imposing, grand and very luxe.
Alternatively if it's a villa you are seeking book one through Jack at Edenvillas.

SHOP
Galle fort has a few boutiques worth a visit. Raux Brothers and KK Collections for lovely homeware and decor. Barefoot for local finds and Mini Mango which is owned by the lovely Jo Eden for all things fashionable.



DO
Wijaya Beach is the place to hangout with a boho vibe, excellent sashimi and wood fired pizza's. An ocean that's calm in the mornings and has surfers beyond the reef.
Drive down to Mirissa beach and to Tangalle, for an amazing day spent either at very local beach shacks or the grand newly opened Anantara hotel.
Leopard spotting is a must at the Yala game reserve, this requires an overnight stay so if time permits, it's a must see.
