About

About Amangalla

The colonial-style Amangalla offers its guests the most refined accommodation in Galle. It consists of a collection of buildings dating back over 400 years, once used as an HQ for a Dutch commander and his officers in the 17th Century and later as a billet for British soldiers. As a hotel, it offers excellent old-world luxury, superb food, arguably the best spa on the island and exceptional service.

Outside the hotel there are numerous sights and activities to explore. Right on your doorstep is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Galle Fort, whose treasure trove of colonial antiquities, shops and cafes are all easily explored on foot, either on your own or with an informative local guide provided by Amangalla. There are also whale watching cruises, guided bike tours, jungle yoga classes from one of the most serene spots on the island and private walks through a lowland tea plantation. Amangalla can also organise cookery classes with Chef Jonathan who will take you around the Galle food markets beforehand.
