We stayed overnight and it was indeed a great experience . The ambiance and the food was great. Bit costly for locals but once again great stay. Staff were friendly and the walks along the narrow roads of ancient galle fort took us back in time.

This was the best hotel we had in Sri Lanka. We had one of the tree Chambers and it was superb. The staff is friendly and hospitable. The diner very tasty, but wines are to expensive (like all restaurants in Sri Lanka)

An absolutely beautiful oasis in the middle of Galle Fort. Lovely staff, yummy local food and a stunning pool and garden - perfect to relax and enjoy all things Sri Lankan. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Congratulations to the GM and team at Amangalla. We had a wonderful two night stay and could not fault the food or service. The spa is closed for renovations, but we still managed to get a massage. The rooms are wonderful - really spacious and old worldly...beautiful. Only comment would be that maintenance needs to be a constant - our... More

We spent two nights at Amangalla Hotel and they make you feel really at home. We are used to visit high quality standards hotels and this one in Galle is among them with no doubt at all. From the very first minute in the property what you see is what you get: excellent service, excellent quality and good management standards.... More

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

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

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.
