The chef here went above and beyond to create a fully vegan Sri Lankan menu for us. We were blown away by how delicious it was. The staff were so sweet and the setting is just dreamy. Can't wait to visit again and check out the hotel too!

Great Aman property in an old colonial building. Service was spectacular and what one would expect at the Aman. The hotel manager was very friendly and liked to interact with guests. Our butler was also very helpful.

The rooms are unique with most furnitures dating back to the original owner. The bed did get a bit squeaky.

The food was good but nothing to write about. The spa was also ok. Had a four hour session and it was mediocre at best.

The most expensive restaurant in Sri Lanka I had but everything was perfect, I had a seafood platter and was very tasty, especially king prawns, my friend had ham with chicken breast and my second friend had spaghetti with prawns, they had banana pudding and chocolate orange for dessert and all their food were excellent. Service was very friendly, attentive and professional Beautiful decor with many flowers and old furniture Like I wrote from the beginning it's a very expensive place but it was worth it to spend a money

We got a nice table att the terrace. Never got offered any menu for cocktails or other drinks before dinner and directly had to order starters and main courses.

The food itself was good and of good quality. But it was almost tasteless - no finess at all. Neither the cappacio, nor any other main course had any spices at all. All tasted just ”flat”- onlybexeption was the rice and curry that was very good.

And not to forget the price tag. We have eaten much better on most places on Sri Lanka and for much less. Very sad and disappointing !!

But to end with something positive, the staff was friendly and very professional and quick.

Aman is the brain child of Adrian Zecha, an Indonesian Hotelier. He started his career as a journalist, and was searching for an ideal location for a holiday home in Phuket, when he visualised making it into a 40-bedroom resort. Aman has now grown into 32 resorts, hotels, and private residences in 20 countries. The brand changed hands and is now owned by Vladislav Doronin, a Russian businessman.

Meticulously designed to frame their natural settings, Aman destinations are renowned for space and privacy. Guests are welcomed as if to the home of a close friend, instilling a sense of peace and belonging amid some of the most diverse natural and historical landscapes. It is an approach that has changed little since 1988.

Amangalla lies within the ramparts of Sri Lanka’s 17th-century Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. “Aman” means “peace” in Sanskrit and that is exactly what a stay in Amangalle provides. From the view out on to the side of the Dutch Reformed Church, over the rooftops towards the sea, the gardens, spa, the library, 21-metre swimming pool and hydrotherapy suites we were spoilt for choice! We originally booked for 2 nights, but extended our stay just to enjoy all what is on offer.

The service at Aman is simply unparalleled, and although the rates can be considered expensive, you feel like you’re getting an experience that’s special and such experiences in life are worth investing in! We were immediately converted to being Aman “Junkies”!!

The breakfast was an amazing spread – compliments to the Chef! Afternoon Cream Tea was a treat with home made scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam with a pot of Ceylon Tea!

I would strongly recommend a stay of a minimum 3 nights at Amangalle! Its just out of this world!
