I can't understand anyone giving the Amangalla a one star either, you obviously need a good spanking and sent to bed without any dinner for being a spoilt brat and throwing your rattle out of the pram. I have never stayed in the hotel but I have eaten in the restaurant on many occasions, the last time was at the... More

We stayed at the Amangalla during our recent tour of Sri Lanka for the Cricket, and find it very hard to fault anything. I cannot understand the previous reviewer who gives the hotel only one star without having even stayed there. That seems very mean to me. The hotel was full to bursting when we were there, but the staff... More

Arriving in this hotle after a long travel feels like being darted back to colonial times. The building and ambiance is so authentic, one can hardly imagine something more fitting in the setting. The hotel restaurant is excuisite and refreshing. The staff is very friendly, although sometimes a bit slow. However, everything gets done.

We came here on two seperate occassions for afternoon tea and for evening dinner. The building and decor emulate its elegant colonial history. It is a superb place to take in this fine atmosphere. Having a Cream Tea seemed like stepping back in the past and being rather decadent. It was absolutely lovely and some american tourists looked on in... More

All the Aman resorts that I have stayed in are excellent, but this one was my favourite! The hotel itself is a beautiful building, with a tangiable heritage that the staff are happy to discuss. The decor is elegant and tasteful, and the rooms are a great size. The pool area is very comfortable, with large covered daybeds on which... More

We did the 2 resort in one trip combination and Amangalla was the next stop, after Amanwella. It was a great combination as they were totally different. Service was excellent, as expected of an Aman. However, due to it's iconic status, there are many guests in the restaurant who were there just for tea which to me spoiled a bit... More

This is a restored Dutch Garrison with a great ambience and great staff. Good: Great food, butler included (with ironing for free for example), cheap laundry, relaxing pool (you can eat there too) and in the perfect location for walks through Galle Fort. Bad: Expensive, noisy, no wifi in rooms (yet), no privacy in bathrooms in many of the rooms... More
