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.
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.
