Spas to Travel For: The Amangalla

Who doesn’t love a deep-tissue hour-and-a-half massage, where you feel like a new person (at least for that day)? Or is there anyone on this earth who would say ‘no’ to an anti-aging facial, that takes years off of your face for the next few weeks? But imagine if you could go to a place and not only get that, but also get real ayurvedic treatments that will change you from the inside, and actually improve your health and quality of life. And there is such a place – that’s the Amangalla.

Set within the walls of Galle Fort’s history-soaked walls, Amangalla is a hub of Sri Lankan energy and pride. The spa (entitled The Baths) is merely a present-day reification of the multitude of local therapies and a recapturing of ancient Sri Lankan wellness philosophies. One of the most influential places for ayurvedic treatments, they have a real doctor on-staff, who will prescribe you a concoction of natural herbs. And, of course, ayurvedic spa treatments that will help you with weight loss, encourage you to eat the right foods, and put you in such a good mental state that it won’t just last a few weeks. Think of it more of a lifestyle input.

With five treatment rooms, two hydrotherapy suites (with hot and cold plunge pools), steam rooms, saunas, and a yoga pavilion, it has never been so enjoyable to get well.
