  • About this holiday

    The boutique Amaloh by Jetwing in Matara is an idyllic and unique coastal property. A stunning large pool, surrounded by grassy green lawn, provides the centrepiece in a garden that leads hotel guests all the way from their rooms to the Indian Ocean. The Amaloh combines modern comforts with the rich history of the Dutch colonies, to establish a charming hotel with character that reflects the culture of the region. The excellent location means that the Amaloh by Jetwing is within easy reach of towns such as Galle and Tangalle and the Yala National Park, and is therefore an essential addition to any Sri Lankan touring holiday.

    Our opinion

    Secluded by trees and the ocean, the Amaloh by Jetwing is a boutique coastal option for anyone looking to visit the south of Sri Lanka.

    Hotel description

    The Amaloh is a boutique Jetwing property 2km from Matara, built in the Dutch colonial style. The hotel looks out across the lawns, tropical trees, water feature, and canopied tables of the pool garden, as well as the beach and ocean beyond. Aside from achieving the high standard of luxury associated with the Jetwing hotel group name, staff at the Amaloh are chiefly concerned with maintaining a welcoming and attractive, homely feel. The hotel’s 20 rooms open out onto balconies, courtyards, or terraces, and have vibrantly colourful local furnishings that offset the sleek white walls. Some rooms have antique Dutch pieces, which add a touch of historic character to the pervading modern feel. Interconnecting rooms are available, and create large, comfortable spaces for families travelling together. Dining options at the Amaloh are refreshingly flexible, with opportunities to eat outside or in your own room. The fine dining restaurant overlooks the pool and gardens, and serves a range of international dishes, from traditional Sri Lankan specialities to more Western cuisine. For guests, this is a prime opportunity to sample some of the fresh, locally-caught seafood. Spa treatments must be arranged in advance, but offer another luxurious addition to the Amaloh’s services. Ayurveda and aromatherapy massages are available, as well as other treatments specially designed to leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated. One of the highlights of your stay will be the sheltered reef-protected cove. Here you may recline on the warm golden sand under a parasol, or enjoy the kayaking and snorkelling facilities provided at the Amaloh. Stay at the Amaloh by Jetwing for a peaceful coastal stop on a longer, comprehensive tour of the highlights of Sri Lanka.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    As the most southerly major town in Sri Lanka, Matara is well-known amongst Sri Lankan residents. The Nilwala River runs through its centre, and it is surrounded by tea estates, spice plantations, paddy fields, and, of course, white-sand beaches. While in Matara, be sure to visit the Dutch Matara Fort, originally built in the late 17th century; since then, Dutch, Portuguese, and British additions have been made. Outside of the town, should time permit, you may wish to visit the lighthouse of Devinuwara on the southernmost point of the island, the beaches of Weligama, the village, harbour, and lagoon of Tangalle, or the Mulgirigala Rock Temple, a monolithic rock with Buddhist figurines and wall paintings.

    Sports nearby


    14 of the Amaloh’s 20 rooms are interconnecting, which provides excellent flexible options for families of all sizes.
