Enjoyed two nights here in February. The staff were fantastic. The food was great and the rooms were very comfortable. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy some beach in Sri Lanka. Try their specialty prawns !

Staying in an Aman property is like no other hotel experience. From the cold towels offered and cool fruit drink when you step onto the verandah, to my 3 MUSTS!! when traveling, Hot water, big towels, and big robes for men. Aman hits all three of these out of the park. THATS WHY I STAY AT AMAN'S. The service, and...

This is a beautifully restored colonial building,retaining the charm of yesteryear with many period features. This is not the typical design led Aman property but none the less provides all the comforts you would expect. The common areas are lovely especially the main Veranda for breakfast,formal afternoon tea or diner. The pool area is a place to unwind and there...

A real delight to have high tea here. Make sure to book a place and keep room for the food and drink by having only a light lunch! Worth the pricey cost for the location and the old period decor alone - very well restored and maintained. great service and attentive and helpful staff too.

After a beautiful walk around the Fort, my mom and I were starving. The manager of the hotel we were staying recommended us to have lunch at Amangalla's restaurant. Well, we had pasta with pure, succulent, and tasty sundried tomato sauce with basil, a delicious pumpking ravioli, garden salad and a kind of zucchini omelete (which they call "fritata", I...

I visited Amangalla a few times a while ago and it's a beautiful place. Built in the colonial style, and furnished the same way. It is in incredibly peaceful, and stays cool even in the summer heat... I was told that the walls are stuffed with coconut fibre to keep the insides cool, but I don't know if that's fact...

One of the best hotel experiences we've ever had. As soon as we stepped inside this wonderful building we felt like we had been whisked away to a grand yet homely sanctuary, full of character, in the midst of a bustling old town.
