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.

We had a marvellous room on the ground floor, like the rest of the hotel it had dark old furniture that just radiate character. Everything about the place was calm and cool in the midst of the frenzy outside, from being greeted with cold towels whenever we stumbled up the steps after a trip around town, to the fresh towels...

I visited Amanggala after hearing so much about the property, the service and of course the English High Tea. My first impression of Amangalla was unimpressive. The old world charm might be an attraction for some but this is the reality - upon entering I found the lounge and dining areas dark, tired, furniture, flooring and doors seem really old... More

From the moment you enter the hotel you realise you have hit the jackpot. Our ground floor room was outstanding and beautifully appointed with a wonderful balcony overlooking the gardens and pool. The staff were very attentive and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had our own butler but we did not take advantage of the service. The food... More

Really, an Aman hotel should always get a five star rating and certainly never less than a four. They're extraordinarily and unapologetically expensive, expectations are set correspondingly high and Aman prides itself on its ability to deliver. And in our experience in Bhutan, Cambodia and Indonesia, Aman manages to do so. So something obviously went badly wrong at Amangalla But... More

A return visit to Amangalle – in Feb 2016 having visited previously in Feb 2015 (reviewed June 2015). This time we stayed in a suite in the main house on the second (US 3rd) floor. A wonderful corner room, bright light and very well furnished. Galle is clearly on the way up – like all Sri Lanka – new shops,... More
