Galle, Sri Lanka


Stay at Amangalla

The colonial-style Amangalla offers its guests the most refined accommodation in Galle. It consists of a collection of buildings dating back over 400 years, once used as an HQ for a Dutch commander and his officers in the 17th Century and later as a billet for British soldiers. As a hotel, it offers excellent old-world luxury, superb food, arguably the best spa on the island and exceptional service.

Outside the hotel there are numerous sights and activities to explore. Right on your doorstep is the UNESCO World

Heritage site of Galle Fort, whose treasure trove of colonial antiquities, shops and cafes are all easily explored on foot, either on your own or with an informative local guide provided by Amangalla. There are also whale watching cruises, guided bike tours, jungle yoga classes from one of the most serene spots on the island and private walks through a lowland tea plantation. Amangalla can also organise cookery classes with Chef Jonathan who will take you around the Galle food markets beforehand.

Judy & Chris

We had an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka. All the hotels, transfers, trips and experiences arranged by True Travel were perfect and all the arrangements went seamlessly according to plan. Our guide and driver, Thusita, was a really nice man and so knowledgeable, going out of his way to make sure that we experienced many of the Sri Lankan foods and traditions as possible. I would recommend True Travel to anyone especially if you have not visited the country before.

A very high standard of five-star properties, with top-notch service and a wide range of amenities and experiences ensuring an unforgettable stay.


These four to five-star accommodations offer the high level of service that our team look always look for, with a range of facilities on offer.


Four-star properties which offer enough amenities for a comfortable stay. We may offer these for a more price-competitive option, or in more remote areas which don't offer the most luxe hotels.


These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
