Things to Know

Set in a 17th-century Dutch colonial building and surrounded by the fascinating Galle Fort, Amangalla is a great place to immerse yourself in Sri Lanka's storied past. Located on the south coast of this magical island, just 125 km from Colombo, Amangalla offers guests a chance to explore the stunning architecture of the Unesco World Heritage Site. Getting there is easy: the journey from Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport takes around two hours by car and only 25 minutes by seaplane or one hour by helicopter!


Amangalla's luxurious accommodations offer guests a taste of colonial grandeur. For those looking for the ultimate experience, there are kingsize four-poster, antique beds, freestanding baths, and living areas with a writing desk, dining table, and unique colonial furnishings. Twin rooms are also available in each room category so that families can stay together.

The bedroom offers views of the Groote Kerk (Great Church), while the chamber provides panoramic views over the treetops towards the fort ramparts. The private verandah chamber overlooks the beautiful gardens, and even suites have sightlines over Amangalla's lush garden or fort ramparts. For the height of luxury, enjoy staying in an Amangalla Suite with stunning views through the tree tops to the fort ramparts. Finally, for those seeking a truly special stay, book a Garden House; this double-story house puts guests at one with nature surrounded by a wrap-around balcony and offers one bedroom with king size four-poster bed as well as an expansive living room with a dining area.


Amangalla offers a variety of dining experiences that cater to all tastes. Guests can dine in the grand Zaal (Great Hall) with high ceilings, overhead fans, and chandeliers for light meals, drinks, or the signature silver stand afternoon tea. For breakfast, lunch, or dinner, there is the Dining Room which serves Western-inspired and authentic Sri Lankan cuisine. The Veranda along Church Street is open throughout the day, offering traditional hopper breakfasts while watching the fort awaken, light lunches escaping the midday heat, decadent afternoon teas, and candlelit dinners. For a unique experience, guests can watch the sun dip below the horizon at The Sunset Balcony, accompanied by expertly mixed cocktails and locally brewed beer. Alternatively, guests can opt for private dining poolside or at The Library Veranda accompanied by a flutist or fire dance performance (on request).

Finally, explore Sri Lanka's cinnamon production culture with sunset snacks and tea in a traditional wooden hut during The Cinnamon Experience.

Explore Galle Fort

Situated on the southwestern coast of Sri Lanka, Galle Fort is an incredible example of colonial architecture. This ancient fortification was initially built by the Portuguese in 1588 and later expanded by the Dutch. Today, it is a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site, with fortified walls that still stand strong after hundreds of years. Inside the fort, visitors can explore numerous antique churches, mosques, and other structures, as well as get lost in its narrow cobbled streets and admire stunning views from its ramparts.
