Southern Beaches

As you approach the gravel road leading up to Amanwella’s pebbled courtyard, you sense that you’ve arrived at the definitive Sri Lankan seaside destination. Situated in a mature coconut grove facing a glorious crescent-shaped beach near the fishing village of Tangalle in Sri Lanka, the retreat derives its name from Aman, or ‘peace’ in Sanskrit, and Wella, the Sinhalese word for ‘beach’.

Comprised of 30 luxurious suites, the Amanwella design exudes clean sophistication with high terracotta roofs, hand-hewn stone walls, and large glass windows. Wake up to the sound of the Indian Ocean rolling up onto the soft sand before taking a refreshing pre-breakfast dip in your own private plunge pool.

Amanwella’s suites are linked by pathways along a landscaped rise overlooking the beach. The hotel has plenty of nooks and crannies to explore and places to sit back and relax including sun decks around the 47-meter pool, two grassy courtyards, and an extensive library.

Why we recommend Amanwella

Sitting proudly along the coast of Tangalle in Sri Lanka, located away from the busy stretch of hotels, Amanwella is a gem of a place. All suites are spacious and calming, featuring dark wood furnishings and a taupe color scheme. Each one boasts private plunge pools and terraces which open out towards the sea. Just like the design, the cuisine also pays homage to the traditional Sri Lankan cuisine, and when in the season, the freshly caught seafood is something not to be missed.
