ONYX Hospitality Group has launched a brand-new Amari property in Sri Lanka’s historic southwest coastal city of Galle. The 172-room Amari Galle, located a short distance from the UNESCO World Heritage Galle Fort, is ONYX Hospitality Group’s third hotel in Sri Lanka. This hotel is also the Group’s third Amari opening this year, following Amari Johor Bahru in Malaysia and Amari Yangshuo in China.
Amari Galle’s architecture and design takes inspiration from the natural beauty of the Galle coastline. A panoramic view of the ocean, the gentle sea breeze and warm southern smiles of the Amari Galle team are what greets guests upon arrival.
Every guest room and suite at Amari Galle offers direct sea views and private balconies. The hotel offers accommodation options in five broad categories: deluxe ocean view, deluxe terrace ocean view and grand deluxe ocean view rooms, one bedroom suites and a 360 square-metre presidential suite complete with roof terrace and private plunge pool.
Ahara Gourmet Gallery, the signature market-style restaurant of Amari Galle, offers guests the opportunity to interact with chefs and experience the vibrant flavours of Asian and international cuisines inspired by the region’s rich street food culture. Shoreline Beach Club provides the ideal setting for guests to take in the calming view of the ocean while sampling a variety of snacks and cocktails. The rooftop bar Bommu, named from the local expression ‘let’s have a drink’, is the ideal place to unwind and mingle.
Another feature unique to Amari is the Voyager Lounge, a comfortable and relaxed space ideal for informal gatherings, reading, working or light meals. Open to all guests, this 24-hour facility also features a library, showers and luggage-sized lockers, perfect for travellers who are arriving early or departing late at night.
Amari Galle is equipped to handle meetings, seminars, product launches and workshops with a ballroom that can accommodate approximately 250 people for seated dinners, supported by three IDEA rooms designed for creative meetings.
