Amangalla derives its name from aman, or ‘peace’ in Sanskrit, and galla, the Sinhalese name for the town of Galle. The resort provides the perfect base for exploring the fort and the historic town of Galle. Set within the walls of the fort, Amangalla is an amalgamation of buildings dating back over 400 years. Collectively, the buildings have been used as headquarters for the Dutch commander and his officers and later as a billet for British soldiers. In 1865, the buildings were combined to create the New Oriental Hotel, one of twelve hotels at the time within the fort. As the New Oriental Hotel, the property traded for 140 years. There are four categories of guestrooms: bedrooms, chambers, suites and the garden house.
