Amangalla lies at the heart of this UNESCO World Heritage Site adjacent to the Dutch-era Groote Kerk. Set within the ramparts of Galle Fort, the seventeenth century building retains much of its original character, the interiors graced by period furnishing – suites and chambers boasting polished teak floors, free standing bathtubs and four-poster beds, the windows looking out over the imposing hexagonal stone fort or the property’s mature gardens. Watch the world go by from the terrace before eating in The Dining Room, a colonial style restaurant with antique silverware and glittering chandeliers, whilst for sundowners the upstairs balcony is ever
popular. In the spa an Ayurvedic doctor is on hand to recommend treatments.
Prices per night including breakfast, afternoon tea by the pool, mini bar (excluding alcohol) and Wi-fi. Room upgrades available.

A two hour drive east of Amangalla along the south coast is the contemporary beachfront resort of Amanwella. Coastal cool slap bang on one of Sri Lanka's best beaches, this is an ideal twin-centre combination.
Drive out into rural Sri Lanka and visit ancient temples and villages where time has slowed to a standstill. Return via Handunugoda tea plantation, just 25 minutes east of Galle, it is the perfect place to refuel on tea and cake.
Between December and April head 40 minutes out of town to Mirissa Harbour for dolphin and blue whale watching from a local fishing trawler.
The best time to visit is generally from November to March when the weather is hot and at its driest, however the ancient cities are best visited from April to September. August is also a popular time to visit, and those travelling during the summer months will benefit from good hotel offers.
