We stayed here two nights as part of a private tour in which the only amendment we made to the proposal we were sent was precisely to visit Amangalla. The hotel is certainly excellent in all respects, particularly where it is. We however felt it was not the Aman thing we expected. There are few beautiful and excellent colonial hotels... More

We stayed here to relax at the beginning of our Sri Lanka holiday. We had originally booked for 5 nights but had to reduce to 2 because they had to do emergency repairs. Instead of just reducing our stay or asking us to put up with the noise they arranged alternative accommodation and transfers to their sister property and upgraded... More

Welcoming staff with gracious smiles. Very courteous and helpful. They go out of the way to help the guests with all their requirements. The property is well maintained with a touch of class. Tranquility rules!! Staying is a must if in Galle.

I entered the hotel with friends to show them this nicely renovated hotel, eat some food and take a short rest. However, I was immediately informed that I cannot look around the courtyard but just stay out on the veranda, which looks out on to the road with little experience of this building. A pretty poor customer service. We have... More

This glorious colonial establishment is a calm and welcoming retreat. Excellent service, beautifully appointed rooms and a gracious charm are the hallmarks of this lovely hotel. Situated within Galle Fort, it occupies a terrific location and has a lovely pool, and a delicious tropical backdrop with monkeys and birds adding to the charm.

This hotel is very very old. And it's renovated quite nicely. But you have to into the whole colonial style to enjoy it. As it does not offer some more modern amenities (like being able to choose the water temperature.) the pool is nice. And the food is good. But don't think it's like a place stuck in time. Around...

Probably one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka -- situated in the old fort area of Galle you felt that you were stepping back in time to a more gracious era. The room was excellent with a 7 or 8 metre ceiling with a verandah that looked out onto a tropical garden . The common areas of the hotel... More

The manager welcomed us at the lobby, and assigned such an excellent butler. The personal butler is really well trained and did a great job. The hotel itself is beautifully designed and well maintained. The bedroom is spacious, colonial style and super clean. The spa is beautiful, but at that time they only have one therapist available so we have... More

We had drinks then dinner at the Amangalla the other night. Service was attentive and welcoming and the young waiter who serviced us was very good. We sat in the veranda area over looking the road and large trees at the front of the hotel. The sitting areas have a wonderful atmosphere, like stepping back to the 30's. The Amangalla... More

Enjoyed two nights here in February. The staff were fantastic. The food was great and the rooms were very comfortable. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy some beach in Sri Lanka. Try their specialty prawns !
