Amangalla in Galle, Sri Lanka

The enchanting grounds of Amangalla are spread across nearly 9,000 square metres on the Galle peninsula, defined by the 400-year-old fort. The resort’s mature garden dates back to the building’s construction in the 1860s, and the UNESCO-protected fort is the best-preserved colonial fortification in Asia. The peninsula offers boundless opportunities for discovery, as does the surrounding city, countryside and ocean, from temples and tea plantations to blue whale watching. A stately grande dame in the city of Galle on Sri Lanka’s south coast, Amangalla has the period charm of a bygone era. Built in 1684, the historic edifice retains its heritage in every architectural and decorative detail.

Capturing the essence of colonial style with pared-back finesse, Amangalla’s elegant Rooms and Signature Rooms feature high-ceilings with large windows and the original polished Burmese teak floorboards. Decorated with period antiques including four-poster beds, pettagama chests and planter’s chairs, they overlook the Fort’s quaint lanes and ramparts or the hotel’s 200-year-old gardens. Our dining facility is open to guests and non-residents. Furnished with period chairs and tables, crisp white linen and antique silverware, the high-ceilings of the Dining Room makes for an intimate meal setting, which centre on local produce. The daily-changing dinner menu is based on the chef’s finds at the various markets in Galle, and guests can accompany him on his rounds before returning to the kitchen for a cooking lesson in Sri Lankan cuisine. Amangalla’s spa, The Baths, recaptures a bygone era of taking the waters as a restoration for body and mind. Five treatment rooms are home to a range of therapies, which can be personalized by the spa’s Ayurvedic doctor to include massages, anointments, reflexology and scrubs. The two hydrotherapy suites contain hot and cold plunge pools as well as steam rooms and saunas, complemented by the yoga pavilion, where the discipline is practiced every morning.

We ordered the Sri Lankan set menu for dinner and it was excellent: very nicely prepared and served with generous portions. The ambience was lovely and our waiter, Priyankara was fantastic. He was attentive and efficient. He also answered a lot of our questions.

We stayed 2 nights in this little (30 rooms) hotel on the edge of the fort, so a real appeal to those interested in heritage and history. Very colonial feel-the decor, the furniture all wood, music etc. apparently all original. Clean sparse rooms, but you had everything you needed. Our room was on the top floor (2nd) and we certainly felt the climb! No lifts, no tv. Very good polite service at all times - only negative on that is that a number of staff did not understand or speak English- so needed to find someone who did. Great view of the sea, intrigued by the number of people that came all day long to take professional romantic photos in the open grass at the front of the hotel! Good but very expensive (only reason it's not 5 star) experience.

We had the best stay ever here. All staff was so sweet, taking really good Care of us and our little daughter. They were very High level trained. Small details like giving us water when we went out on the fort tour, and wet towls when we came back totally hot. Each time They also remembered our guide. The rooms were very spacious ind "coloniel" style. No tv in the room, but accually this was not a problem. Wifi ok. Great pool area, where we also had breakfast and lunch. Dinner and High tea on the balcony, nice food and atmosfere.

This 20 or so room hotel is at the top of Galle Fort, within historic former administrative buildings. It is part of the Aman hotel group, known for superb personalized service. My "standard" room had a large canopied bed, writing desk, and adjoining dressing room for two, closeted toilet, and closeted shower. A claw footed tub centers the room and large davenports house your hanging and folded clothes. Air conditioned and ceiling fan, and windows that open. The rooms are aligned along two hallways, and an inner courtyard with a guesthouse, shared pool, spa and library. There is a formal dining room. Cocktails are served in the expansive lobby and more preferably the veranda overlooking the outside mostly walking street traffic.Breakfast is included and I was introduced to avocado toast here. .Your every need will be looked after by a butler and staff If you leave the room briefly it will be tidied every time.. I had the best massage ever there, and a beard trim and shave that was heaven. These are luxury hotels, enjoy them. Walking distance to the ocean, fort attractions, restaurants, and other interests.

We stayed a bit outside of Galle Fort, but came to Galle for dinner. We actually just wanted to have pre dinner drinks, but they were so good, and after we looked at the menu, we decided to stay on for dinner. We got some fish cakes with our drinks, but my husband has a seafood allergy and I'm not very fond of fish cakes either, so they brought us the most delicious chips ever. We asked for a second bowl :-) dinner was again, exceptionally good and staff was very attentive and friendly. The hotel looks lovely from outside and I'm sure the rooms are delightful. I would recommend to stay there, even if I haven't seen their rooms, but I'm sure they're just perfect. Thanks for a great dinner!
