The Amangalle is one of, if not, THE best hotel I have ever stayed in. We had room 33, the suite on the first floor. It was extremely spacious, beautifully decorated in true colonial style and spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly and will do their utmost to make your stay more memorable. The pool is wonderful with the choice... More

Amangalla in Galle was an unforgettable experience in the best way possible. Every member of the staff was friendly, knowledgeable , helpful and efficient. We felt at home and relaxed. It is situated in a prime position within the fort and whilst the surrounding restaurants are struggling to find the balance between traditional and contemporary cuisine trends,the Amangalla offers something...

Having read some of the other Trip advisor reviews there is no point adding to the many well deserved superlatives that have been used to describe this wonderful hotel building and the staff. Not a cheap hotel but when you want the best in comfort and service there are few places in the world where it would be surpassed. Galle... More

My husband and I went along for high tea. Wonderful afternoon. Beautiful multi tiered silver cake stand laden with delicious goods, plus refreshing prosecco on the side. Special mention to Dulip, thank you so much for being a wonderful host and showing us this beautifully restored old hotel.

This is Aman all the way through. I read some comments that it might not be up to the usual Aman standard but even if that may have been the case in the past, it certainly is not so now. Woaw, what a fabulous property - location, staff, rooms, food, spa, it's all fabulous. Really enjoyed it.

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
