We stayed there as the last part of our 10 days Sri Lanka trip. We stayed there for 2 days and it was just amazing. The service was very details from the day we check in and every single times we stepped into the hotels. They would just do the right pleasant thing at the right time. At the last... More

What a perfect place to finish our tour of Sri Lanka ! It is a beautiful Manor house inside the Fort of Galle from which you can stroll on the walls or among the little shops which have a good selection of souvenirs and stylist clothes. We had the garden suite, very spacious, well furnished and spotless. The food was... More

We arrived at the hotel feeling dusty and tired but were welcomed with a mixture of smiles and formality. We were impressed with the grandeur, class and charm of the property, and the staff are obviously very proud of their hotel! We were first shown around the property moving from the lush outdoor grounds and beautiful pool area, to the... More

Decided to have dinner at Amangalla on the 28 th of May 2014. Am familiar with the property as I have been going to the Fort in Galle since I have been a child. Undoubtedly, since the Aman group have refurbished the property it really is something which has retained the old world charm. The high ceilings with fans circling... More

Stayed only a night, but it was great. The hotel is situated in-between the fort walls in the great Dutch fort with a great historical ambiance. The food is great and the untouched historical beauty of the hotel is so great. The old style renovated rooms are great plus, the large pool in the backyard. I personally had a SPA... More

Stunning room. Beautiful pool area. My wife reckoned the massage she had was the best ever. Great food. Room rate expensive but worth every penny and... More

I am very fortunate that I have been able to visit many countries in Asia as my fiancé has frequent business in Hong Kong. This trip we decided on Sri Lanka for 7 days and then on to Maldives. Our first leg of the trip was in the south, and we chose Amangalla as it was highly recommended by American... More

All my experiences with Aman have been very good, but this historical property located in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Dutch Fort area of Galle is special: Rooms, pool, location, food, service all excellent.
