Amangalla, a favourite with Steppes Travel, is the perfect home from which to explore the fort and town of Galle. It is within the walls of the fort and some of the buildings have an interesting history.

Having once been used as headquarters for the Dutch commander and his officers and later as a billet for British soldiers, some date back 400 years.


Amangalla is situated in the heart of historic Galle.


  • Large and beautiful Ayurvedic spa
  • Dining Room
  • Tea on the veranda
  • Swimming pool
  • Poolside snacks and drinks
  • Hydrotherapy chambers with steam and sauna
  • Library


The charming town of Galle oozes colonial splendour. Stroll directly from the hotel and discover the ramparts and the sea wall, shopping and markets. For those looking for longer walks, try the Rhumassala Trek, on the headland across from Galle Fort. Between December and April is Blue Whale season off Weligama Bay, take a boat and stop for a picnic en route. Venture 25 minutes from Galle to the Handunugoda Tea Plantation for tea with the planter.

Why we like it

Amangalla is a shining example of a sympathetically restored hotel with sublime service and attention to detail.
