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.


Galle lies on Sri Lanka’s south coast, around 100 kilometres from the capital, Colombo. Once Sri Lanka’s largest stronghold, Galle fort is a Unesco World Heritage Site famed for its colonial architecture dating back to the 17th century.
