The hotel itself is georgeous. The service is faultless, from the moment we arrived at Colombo; around midnight. We were whisked away in the car and arrived at Amangalla at 2.30am. They showed us to our rooms immediately and even asked if they can rustle up some late night snacks or hot chocolate for us. Now that's going the extra mile.
We did the Fort and Beach experience. The spa that was on offer was great. Once again service was second to none.
The niggly complaint that we had was due to the noise of the people walking above us. We pointed that out to the manager and she told us that the people above us will be checking out the next day and she blocked the room so that we were left in peace and quiet. And we were.
The food was superb. The afternoon tea was to die for. Those scones! And finger sandwiches. Then came dinner, which were another feast onto itself. Sunset drinks on the top floor was pretty spectacular too. All in all pretty amazing place, we were given a tour of the hotel which was originally the Dutch Military HQ then in the late 1890s became the New Oriental Hotel, till Aman took over in 2004, 3 days after opening the tsunami hit and Amangalla was used as a temporary hospital.
Truly amazing history and its service to the community
