Amangalla is a 5-star franchise hotel belonging to the international group of Aman Resorts, located in Galle, Sri Lanka built within Galle Fort, the 17th-century Dutch fort, inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just to its north is the Galle International Stadium and roundabout. The oldest part of the hotel dates to 1684, and the complex was completed in 1715. It was known as the New Oriental Hotel for 140 years from 1865. In 2005 it became Amangalla resort complex. Aman means "peace" and galla is the Sinhalese name for Galle.
The hotel is situated in Galle, the capital of the Southern Province of Sri Lanka and is located inside the historic Galle Fort, a hexagonal stone fort built over an area of 36 hectares (89 acres). The fort, fully inhabited, has many period buildings of the colonial era within a network of narrow roads.
