Amangalla

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Amangalla in Sri Lanka is housed in an ancient, colonial style building dating back to 1684, which has served as a hotel ever since 1863. The majestic 400 years old Galle Fort, the historic heart of the southern coast of Sri Lanka, is rising right next to it. The largest and most heavily fortified fortress in the times of old Ceylon dating back to the period of Dutch rule is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Amangalla resort, which offers 28 guest rooms and a two-story garden house, is the very embodiment of the colonial time charm and elegance. It features original, antique furniture, inherited from the precious residents - New Orient Hotel, while missing pieces are replaced by truly outstanding duplicates. All the rooms boast 300 years old teak wood flooring but the library is stocked up with historic artifacts and numerous books devoted to Sri Lanka's unique cultural heritage. Just a 10 minute ride - and you have reached the famous Sri Lanka tea plantations, 35 minutes - and there are rainforests, while the Indian Ocean splashes almost at your threshold!
