Lonely Planet review
Enjoy colonial opulence in this lavishly kitted out resort that's based in one of the Fort's most famous buildings. The opening scene is one of massive, polished wooden floors and spiffily dressed staff, who lead you like royalty into luxurious rooms you may have a hard time leaving.
In its previous incarnation as the New Oriental Hotel, the building housed generations of travellers. You can recall those days – and the Dutch family who ran the place – in the beautiful library, which, like the gorgeous pool, offers a reason to leave your room.
Our independent authors have visited Amangalla and selected this as one of our recommended boutique hotels in Galle.
