Amangalla within the World Heritage listed Galle Fort, was simply breathtakingly understated colonial, with ultra modern features. We had a private suite by the pool with butler service. They have a 25mt pool (which we saw nobody else use!) and super spa treatments. You can walk everywhere from here, and if it is gems/jewellery you want then there are 60+... More

From the minute we arrived after a 6 hour drive we felt that we were in a true luxury hotel. The staff were constantly friendly and attentive, our room was bigger than our apartment. Almost everytime we left the room we returned to some new surprise - roses on the bed, a cake, ferns which created a canopy over the... More

On the arduous ride from Ceylon Tea Trails in Hatton to the city of Galle, I wondered how our next accommodations (Amangalla) would compare our lovely stay at the Norwood Bungalow? Well, from our arrival at Amangalla to our departure two days later, we were exceedingly pleased with our experience at this historical property inside the walls of Galle Fort!... More

A fantastic location inside the old fort in Galle, the hotel is housed in an old building and is beautifully renovated, with white walls sparse dark antique furniture. The pool is in a wonderful setting and the breakfast, high tea dining area is very low key and relaxing. The free standing baths in the suites were enjoyable and the spa... More

A historical building full of colonial charm. Even the standard room is huge with bed room same size as that of the bedroom itself. Dinner and breakfast both fantastic. The atmosphere of the dining area was so awesome - old title floor, extreme high ceiling, slow turning fans above, sitting on the veranda, feeling the summer breeze, watching the people... More

We had a lovely stay at the Unawatuna Beach in July. The owner and his wife couldn't do enough for us and looked after us really well. The food there was superb, we had some lovely curries and there was pizza for the kids - it was excellent value for money- as was best the guest house. We recommend
