Nestled on the palm-strewn shoreline of Tangalle, 190 KM from the sophisticated urban milieu of Colombo, lies the island’s historic resort; ‘Amanwella’. A place that provides the perfect setting for putting down roots whilst vacaying on the Southern shores of Sri Lanka.

Best Known For

Cocooned above a crescent-shaped bay, the surroundings of ‘Amanwella’ eloquently speak of paradisiac charm. Strewn artfully across the lush, 38 acre tropical gardens of this luxury resort in Tangalle are 27 contemporary suites inspired by the famed Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa’s architecture.

The Experience

Nestled under towering coconut palms are a collection of suites that afford views of the gardens, brine oceans and coconut groves. Opening out to an entrance courtyard on one side and an expansive terrace on the other, each suite comes with a private plunge pool, twin sun loungers and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. Whilst outdoor banquettes are available for lounging and dining, the indoor living space offers cosy wooden furniture.

A capacious magnificent pool lures you to fritter away the morning hours in its sun-warm waters. Ensconced above the pool, ‘The Restaurant and Lounge Bar’ dishes out Asian and Mediterranean classics, seafood delicacies and captivating cocktails. Nestled close to the beachfront, ‘The Beach Club’ hosts outdoor grilling cookouts whilst the ‘Pool Terrace’ serves out light lunches and antipasti dinners. Guests can indulge in an immersive dining experience such as a clay pot lunch at a farmer’s house or a starlight dinner amidst the coconut groves. The boutique hotel’s in-house recreational choices include a library, spa and wellness centre.

Around and About

Clad in lush palm groves, idyllic shores and tumbling vegetation, Tangalle brims with a deep southern charm. Wander the 800 metre long beach of Amanwella, basking in onshore breezes and watch rows of jewel-coloured fishing boats as they bob up and down in tranquil blue waters. The beaches of Tangalle are ideal for surfing and snorkeling. Wind your way to the nearby fishing village of Wella Wathuara and enjoy its lush landscapes and exotic lifestyle. Nearby attractions include the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary, the Rekawa Turtle Hatchery and the Mulgirigala Raja Maha Viharaya Temple.

Gaze across the coconut palms into the silver-blue ocean, soak in the morning sunshine and watch as picture book clouds race across the azure blue skies. Amanwella is indeed a slice of paradise.
