Why stay here?
Amangalla provides a tranquil and period styled base from which to explore the fascinating culture and tumultuous history of Galle Fort and Galle, the capital of the Southern Province. Amangalla’s history is born out of the early Dutch colonial period, and is located right in the heart of the preserved Dutch fort, offering guests a memorable and appropriately stylish stay in architectural splendor.
It is surrounded by antiques, old prints, polished aged-floors, crisp white linen, pristine walls, rich mahogany, wood and rattan planters together with a gracious hospitality. Gentle strolls directly from the hotel unravel the unique history of this magnificent 36-hectare hexagonal stone fort, revealing colonial buildings still in use, bustling narrow streets proffering the crafts of many generations, as well as the ramparts and seawall where locals and visitors gather to fly kites, play cricket or simply inhale the wonders of the maritime legacy.
A large swimming pool, surrounded by palms, is centered within the resort’s established gardens, a cool respite from exploring. The pool courtyard has several wooden sun loungers and five serene shaded ambalamas, or rest pavilions.Information
