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 !

This wonderful Aman is set within the old East Orient hotel in the fort of Galle. You can see all the fort on foot from the hotel and if you want to explore a little further afield Tuks Tuks available outside the hotel will take you on a tour. The hotel is as you can see on here or on... More

Staying in an Aman property is like no other hotel experience. From the cold towels offered and cool fruit drink when you step onto the verandah, to my 3 MUSTS!! when traveling, Hot water, big towels, and big robes for men. Aman hits all three of these out of the park. THATS WHY I STAY AT AMAN'S. The service, and... More

This is a beautifully restored colonial building,retaining the charm of yesteryear with many period features. This is not the typical design led Aman property but none the less provides all the comforts you would expect. The common areas are lovely especially the main Veranda for breakfast,formal afternoon tea or diner. The pool area is a place to unwind and there... More

A real delight to have high tea here. Make sure to book a place and keep room for the food and drink by having only a light lunch! Worth the pricey cost for the location and the old period decor alone - very well restored and maintained. great service and attentive and helpful staff too.

We didn't stay at the hotel but went in for drinks a few times. The place realy is very beautifual and the atmosphere is one of old colonial luxury and grandeur of days gone by. The porch is a beautiful place to sit down for a drink and watch life go by. The restaurant and lobby are very impressive and... More

After a beautiful walk around the Fort, my mom and I were starving. The manager of the hotel we were staying recommended us to have lunch at Amangalla's restaurant. Well, we had pasta with pure, succulent, and tasty sundried tomato sauce with basil, a delicious pumpking ravioli, garden salad and a kind of zucchini omelete (which they call "fritata", I... More
