The first stop in Galle and this was an incredibly beautiful setting. As a group of 12 for a birthday, we started off with drinks in the landing and moved to a long table. Decor is truly colonial and really makes you feel like you are in another world. Food and service were great, although those who has the lobster... More

We had lunch twice at Amangalla, heading back a second time a few days later because of the quality of the food on the first visit. The building is beautiful and in a quiet spot near the North wall of the fort. Immaculate inside and out and with a high quality colonial deco. Service was superb, menu extensive and food... More

We didn't actually stay in the hotel but we were treated to massages in the hotel spa as a wedding gift and it was outstanding. My husband and I were led to our own private spa with a huge hot tub, a plunge pool, a sauna and a steam room. After that we then each had the signature Amangalla massage... More

The guide book suggested afternoon tea but this was not on our lunch menu. Prices were very reasonable we stuck to local delicacies the Ayurveda curry and a whole lot of food came out all vegetarian and... More

Usually we avoid hotel restaurants as their food is generally inauthentic. But after walking the streets of Galle amid the midday heat, we stopped by at this beautiful hotel for afternoon snacks. Particularly noteworthy is the coconut custard called "watalappam." Amangalla's version is perfect, even better than those of hole-in-the-wall eateries where it's commonly found.

My husband and I came to Galle for a Day Trip from Colombo and decided to have breakfast at the Amangalla Hotel. The breakfast (Muesli with figs/nuts and Scrambled eggs with toast) was delicious and the latte tasted like in Europe - heavenly! The service was great and any wish we had was covered. It was a lovely stop on... More

We enjoyed sipping on Long Island Iced Teas, admiring the colonial architecture and decor of the massive lounge area. Later we moved to a table on the balcony for dinner .. I had the lobster risotto (which was great).
