Beautiful property carefully restored to a level of modern elegance not seen with any other property in the Galle Fort. We were particularly impressed with how all aspects of the property seemed updated and not neglected even though the property is now 12+ years since Aman took over. Service was typically Aman-esque and exceptional. Everything in the room worked and... More

Stayed for a 3 nights over our anniversary and it was perfect. Service was impeccable, in fact beyond that. The hotel its self is steeped in history and beautifully maintained. The location is ideal for galle, restaurants and boutiques all a few mins walk. Stayed in suite 22, absolutely prefect - every detail thought of and more. This is a... More

Aman took over the derelict Grand Oriental Hotel, one of Sri Lankas most historic hotels, and brought it back to it's rightful splendor. Beautiful architecture and very stylish rooms, in classic colonial style, a first for Aman. The rooms are heavily air conditioned, but the lobby, as it's opened to the balcony, is not, so it does get a bit... More

We have wanted to visit this hotel for so long given its incredible history and amazing location.It exceeded all expectations in every way.Based on our visit we are determined to visit more Aman hotels as soon as is possible. Photographs do no justice to this WOW factor hotel. It is impossible to convey the level of service and very high... More

Had drink at the restaurant/bar and the staff were so obnoxiously snobby! Spoiled the experience completely. Is a gorgeous hotel and such a shame that these staff let it down. This is not what is expected from an Aman.

Visited for afternoon tea. Opted for the scones option rather than full blown afternoon tea with sandwiches and cake. Setting and service could not be faulted. Beautifully restored building full of colonial charm and exuberance. Scones were top class as were the strawberry and cream. Went for local white tea which rounded an extremely enjoyable time. Not cheap but worth... More

Surely one of the nicest 'colonial' style properties in Asia. Great location in the middle of Galle Fort (which is the next Seminyak, Bali) and the country's southern beaches. But the service falls a bit short (for an Aman). While the butler team itself is excellent, the overall service level is hesitant and generally inconsistent. For example: the front desk... More

So gorgeous I didn't want to leave the hotel! I particularly loved the roti dinner in the padi fields and cute dog out the front! Book the onsite barber for your man. Great old world charm. Highly recommended for a romantic long weekend. The only downside was that the hotel car from the airport was nothing special compared to the... More

Amangalla has been refurbished to an incredibly high level, with such attention to detail - it is a joy to just be inside this hotel. It manages to successfully combine modern comforts and amenities with the style and aesthetics of the colonial area to great success. Despite being in the heart of Galle Fort, the pool is a tranquil little... More

The property is beautiful and the manager during our stay was nice but... I felt the management isn't having the impact it might have and the service isn't great. Food is good (very good) the pool service was poor (out of sight, out of mind) and it is nice, but not great.
