There may be no more luxurious way to experience the pristine beaches of Sri Lanka’s southern coast than at Amanwella. The Aman brand’s reputation for the highest levels of service and luxury pair with the endless horizon and tropical paradise to create a true experience of ‘aman’—the Sanskrit word for peace—and the Sinhalese word for beach, ‘wella’.
The 30 rooms at Amanwella are beautifully appointed with modern furnishing, tastefully minimal in style, but also abundantly comfortable. Its simplicity is intentional, for no detail within the suites could compete with the stunning ocean views. Each suite has floor to ceiling sliding glass doors looking out toward the azure seas. On the ocean side, the suite opens up to a patio, with loungers and seating for an intimate dinner or glass of wine while enjoying the view. Exiting the other side, each room has a private plunge pool in its entrance courtyard, perfect for a quick and refreshing dip at any time of day.
At the main building, the hotel’s infinity pool overlooks the ocean to immerse you in the sense of endlessness you feel when gazing out at the horizon. Complementing the serenity of the views, spa treatments can be arranged in the peaceful wellness facilities or in the privacy of your room. Treatments are designed to channel the rhythmic waves and breezes, using products derived from local materials.
Dining at Amanwalla represents the stunning heights Sri Lankan cuisine has attained. Whether you choose to dine at the hotel’s restaurant or the Beach Club, you’ll enjoy fresh catch delivered daily by local fishermen, and an array of local produce. All culinary offerings are blended in classic Sri Lankan style with herbs and spices hand-selected from local markets.
While you’ll want to make sure you spend plenty of time with your toes in the sand, Amanwella can arrange for a variety of excursions and adventures during your stay. Go beneath the water diving or snorkeling, or sail on top on a whale watching adventure. Visit nearby temples, and embark to wildlife sanctuaries, where leopards and elephants can be spotted with your expert trackers. At the end of the day, Amanwella welcomes you back to your private paradise.Request Information
