Luxury Holidays in Sri Lanka

Occupying a 17th-century Dutch colonial building within the ramparts of Galle’s historic fort, Amangalla is woven unmistakably into the rich tapestry of this enthralling city. With its original polished teak floors, antique furniture and 19th-century artefacts dating from the building’s former life as the New Oriental Hotel, a bygone era is kept elegantly intact, allowing guests an atmospheric insight into the many chapters of the storied citadel on Amangalla’s doorstep.

All the rooms at Amangalla enjoy kingsize four-poster antique beds, freestanding baths, and a living area with a writing desk and dining table. Pettagama chests and planter’s chairs add to the colonial ambience. Twin rooms are also available in each room category.
