About This Hotel
Discover the storied past of Galle, Sri Lanka with a stay in its most famous landmark. Amangalla's colonial setting transports you to the past while you explore a present-day bustling port town.
The capital of Sri Lanka's Southern Province, Galle is acclaimed for its Dutch fort, woodcarvings, and gems. Persians, Arabs, Chinese, Malays, South Indians, Portuguese, Dutch, and English have stamped their mark on Galle.
Amangalla is the Dutch fort, which is packed with antiques, old prints, white linen, and rich mahogany. The suites are colonially styled, featuring four-poster beds, pettagama chests, and teak floorboards. All rooms offer views of the hotel gardens. The bathrooms, in hardwood and white, include an armoire, twin vanities, free-standing bathtubs, and shower rooms.
A large swimming pool, surrounded by palms, is a cool respite from exploring, and its courtyard has several wooden sun loungers.
Step out of the hotel and unravel the history of the fort, which houses many colonial buildings that are still in use. Outside its walls, you can explore bustling narrow streets, and the ramparts and seawall, where locals gather alike to fly kites, play cricket, or relax.
