Decided to have dinner at Amangalla on the 28 th of May 2014. Am familiar with the property as I have been going to the Fort in Galle since I have been a child.

Stayed only a night, but it was great. The hotel is situated in-between the fort walls in the great Dutch fort with a great historical ambiance.
