A Sri Lanka Holiday In Galle Staying At The Amangalla
Sri Lanka holidays are becoming more popular, and the number of package holidays to Sri Lanka are once again on the increase. Sri Lank is a beautiful island with much to see and do from beautiful beaches on the south west coast, to historic places like the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy. You can visit working tea plantation or old British Hill Station at Nuwera Eliya.on your Sri Lanka Vacation. One place you must visit is the Fort at Galle, and when you are there you need to stay in the Amangalla Resort. Amangalla is an amazing hotel by anyones’ standards anywhere, but quite outstanding by anywhere else in Sri Lanka.
The Aman group has done it again in Galle on the south coast. Amangalla is within the ramparts of the 17th century Fort in the town of Galle, and uses the old buildings which date back in some cases over 400 years. The historic town of Galle has a combination of houses from both the British and Dutch colonial eras, and the resort gives its guests a glimpse of historic Galle, with its narrow streets, daily life, and hustle and bustle of daily life. Amangalla is a great base to explore the fascinating city of Galle, and the surrounding areas, and you don’t have to walk far before you can see and understand what the old Fort and Galle is about, and begin to understand its history and customs The Hotel provides views either of the garden or the Fort and Harbour beyond, but it is the whole ethos of Amangalla that makes it possibly the ultimate hotel to stay in on your Sri Lanka holidays. A typical day at Amangalla could well take the following format.
You will be woken by your own butler, and be served tea in bed. When the shutters are pulled back by him the sunlight will fill the room, and you may well be staring in amazement at the stunning view of the ramparts of the old fort, or the Old Dutch Church. As a man you might start your day in the Spa and you can be shaved in the old fashioned way, even in a proper barber’s chair, with a proper cut throat razor!! This will be the complete London Club works, and will include hot and cold towels, and high quality pre shave and aftershave products. After a superb restaurant breakfast in the Zaal, you may well wish to spend the morning around the pool, where you will be waited on hand and foot, with a seemingly endless supply of cold towels, iced water, even watermelon. You may take a walk in the old town, or if it is too hot go to the spa and have a massage, but if you take a walk you will automatically have a guide, with such great knowledge about the history of Galle. Returning to Amnagalla for lunch,you’ll be greeted with more ice cold towels, very welcome after the heat, and iced water equally welcomed. After lunch perhaps a visit to the spa’s hydro pool or sauna, a restful nap, then pre dinner drinks on the top floor. Dinner will be of the same quality as the rest of the day, with a wine list to match. Then bed perchance to dream of tomorrow and another totally relaxing day at Amangalla, part of a totally memorable package holiday to Sri Lanka.
