Amangalla, Galle, Sri Lanka

An hotel in a place that time forgot, except that now it’s modern where it matters, with exceptional service and facilities.

​Despite its immaculate restoration, this historic hotel has remained true to its location at the heart of a World Heritage Site, the beautiful 17th-century Galle Fort.

Its spacious rooms and suites – many still with their 300-year-old teak floorboards and colonial-era furniture – are finished with every contemporary luxury and overlook the ancient gardens, the fort or the lighthouse and sea beyond. ​

​The shaded swimming pool is relaxation enough, but nothing compares to The Baths, the spa that combines the best of old and new.

Old World opulence here knows no bounds from dining on Sri Lankan cuisine in the magnificent Great Hall or the grand afternoon tea on the veranda, to the five butlers who cater to your every whim. ​
