Amanwella, Tangalle

Sri Lanka

Contemporary style and laid-back elegance overlooking the ocean

On the south coast of Sri Lanka, contemporary luxury and idyllic surroundings combine to create a breathtaking resort. The signature style of the Aman hotels is clear and as stunning as usual. Perched above the inviting Indian Ocean, relaxation doesn’t come much more picturesque than this.

Just 27 suites mean that your stay will be one of peace and serenity. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open to reveal the glistening ocean and towering coconut grove. Take it all in from a private terrace and cool off from the sun in your plunge pool.

And speaking of pools, Amanwella’s main pool is 47 metres long and hugs the hillside for more of those remarkable sea views. Enjoy cocktails on a lounger overlooking the rolling waves.

The surrounding water is rich with life and incredible sightings are to be had if you venture out. Blue whales pass by on their annual migration while spinner dolphins leap and entertain right by the boat. To try your own impressive manoeuvres, you’ll find great surfing along the coast. There are also opportunities for land-based adventures nearby. Two national parks a couple of hours away are home to leopards, elephants and plenty more.

Amanwella’s restaurant makes full use of its coastal location. It serves up the freshest, locally caught seafood and fragrant Sri Lankan curries while the sun sets over the water.
