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 stayed a couple of days during Christmas holidays - it was the first touch with Sri Lanka. The building is amazing, the views and the old fort are charming. But... The service is sooooo bad, it's hardly believable for Aman standards. At breakfast, several times we had to wait more than 15 minutes to get water and coffee and most of the serving staff did not understand basic English. At the pool, we were lied that there is a government regulation banning serving coconut water in the coconut, the personnel at the pool would just disappear for ages, so that we could not even get water. Unfortunately, the list goes on and on. The only persons that stood up to the standards were our butler, Nalin, and the assistant manager. Alas, both of them were not present at all times.

was it a Dream we were at Amangalla in December 2017 during our 2 week Holiday and I'm still dreaming! We were greeted by staff as though I had reached home, with a refreshing drink and the Lankan Hospitality we had our personalized butler was the best of all , Butler walked us throughout the old Galle fort with detailed historical information such as good shopping and dining options. He frequently checked on us, making sure all our plans were taken care of. This hotel has been beautifully restored,while maintaining its colonial charms Bathroom is unique with its old fashion tub and wooden interiors The spa was an absolute relax and the therapist has healing Hands, Food was commendable too. The entire time in Gall was wonderful , and it like living in a different era Thanks to Amman Staff the are beautiful...

Exceeding expectations - not often experienced by a frequent traveler. Amangalla did, despite quite high expectations. Great taste in design preserving the old style in an elegant way, super-attention and service from staff (from top to regular staff), Excellent rooms (advising the Chamber veranda rooms) and matching level of food in an exquisite hall and veranda. Establish a relation with management when you arrive and continue to have interesting conversations. The setting in old Galle Fort is a hidden pearl! We are Pleased to recommend all frequent trevelers to stay in Amangalla Hotel in Galle while visiting Sri Lanka!

This was the last stopover on our extended family (10 people) Sri Lanka holiday. Before this we had stayed at Amanwella and Tea trails(see separate reviews). I had been feeling unwell prior to my arrival and this news had obviously been relayed by Amanwella to Amangalla as there was much care and concern shown the moment I arrived. The location is wonderful. The atmosphere in the lobby has a timeless quality. A combination of Sri Lankan exotic and smart European. Our room was on the corner overlooking the pool area. A generously proportioned room with antique styling. Given my condition I confined myself to the room for until the next day. I had a light dinner in my room and it was prepared and presented beautifully. As my stay was brief I cannot say too much about the locale. I took a short walk around inside the fort and into the many shops. I joined the many tourists on the western rampart to see the sunset. At dinner half of our party had the fixed curry menu which looked fantastic although I settled on a rare steak. It was as good as any top Sydney restaurantšŸ˜‹. Definitely going back

We stay(ed) with family for 3 nights at Amangalle. The hotel is old style colonial, with wooden floors and high ceilings. The ā€œproblemā€ with this Aman hotel that it charges. aman prices and in my view tries to sell (in your face) too much. At drinks time they keep coming by to ask if you want more. Its a subtle difference but that is what high end hotels know. The rooms are nice but very noisy with wooden floors around and above. There are also stains on table runners at breakfast. So, thats why I give it a 3 star, because if the price/quality difference.
