“It now gleams like a white pearl, there is a hint of fantasy in the new steel chandeliers, but otherwise the place does not seem to have aged, but just been re-energised as if it has spent the past few years in a spa.”

The National , Abu Dhabi
on Amangalla, August 2011

"Within the Fort, the Amangalla - grandly colonial, smoothly run and deeply indulgent - is the obvious place to stay."

House & Garden, UK

"The by far best cuisine in Galle is being served in the fabulous colonial dining room of the Amangalla… Once you have moved into one of the 30 rooms it is truly difficult to ever leave it again – the teak floor, the high ceilings, the terraces and antique furnitures and the wonderful old-fashioned bathrooms are simply so beautiful to just serve the night's rest".

Bolero, Germany

"Amangalla is the ultimate colonial tropical fantasy."

“I’m beginning to realize why Sri Lankans love their paradise isle, and why the Amanjunkies keep coming back. This is pampered, exotic luxury at its best.”

Aspire (Etihad in-flight), Dubai
Amangalla, March 2011

“The best place to stay is the Amangalla hotel, occupying a 1684 building of such stature that even the most vehement critics of the excesses of Empire will go wobbly at the knees as they pull up a chair on the airy verandah and order a mango Bellini.”


“Rooms are exquisite, the food sensational and the staff in their flowing robes glide around as if in a state of higher consciousness.”

Daily Mail, UK
Amangalla, March 2011

“Amangalla: This former Dutch Colonial Villa in Galle is a dream of a hotel – that you should make come true at least once in your lifetime.”

Geo Saison, Germany
Amangalla, May 2011 (text translated)

“Today, this has been restored as Amangalla, a grand hotel for our times with four-poster beds, a huge jade-green swimming pool and an airy restaurant serving delicious local dishes such as seafood white curry and watalappan (custard) with coconut ice cream.  Add to this the complimentary yoga and a top-class spa, and a stay here engenders such a sense of well-being there is a serious danger you will wander off and spend a reckless amount of money in the nearby shops.”
