A stately “grande dame” in the city of Galle, on Sri Lanka’s south coast, Amangalla has the period charm of a bygone era. Built in 1684, the historic edifice retains its heritage in every architectural and decorative detail. Reflecting Galle Fort’s rich colonial legacy, Amangalla’s serene rooms and Signature Rooms are housed within this historic hotel that has welcomed guests for over 150 years.Let's plan your trip
The enchanting grounds of Amangalla are spread across nearly 9,000 square metres on the Galle peninsula, defined by the 400-year-old fort. The resort’s mature garden dates back to the building’s construction in the 1860s, and the UNESCO-protected fort is the best-preserved colonial fortification in Asia. The peninsula offers boundless opportunities for discovery, as does the surrounding city, countryside and ocean, from temples and tea plantations to blue whale watching.
Capturing the essence of colonial style with pared-back finesse, Amangalla’s elegant Rooms and Signature Rooms are high-ceilinged with large windows and the original polished Burmese teak floorboards. Decorated with period antiques including four-poster beds, pettagama chests and planter’s chairs, they overlook the Fort’s quaint lanes and ramparts or the hotel’s 200-year-old gardens.
