The hotel data

Amanwella is an enduringly popular luxury beach hotel on Sri Lanka’s sensational south coast. Its elevated position above a crescent-shaped beach in Tangalle provides glorious sea views from the restaurant, pool, and the 30 suites.

Amanwella has a striking design with waterways, sun terraces, and courtyards interlinking the rooms and main buildings. The hillside coconut grove leads all the way down to an 800m beach that is pleasingly secluded, ideal for romantic sunset strolls. Couples will also love dining at the raised restaurant and having sundowners at the lounge bar. Many culinary options are available. Guests can relax in the 45-metre pool or with a revitalizing in-room spa treatment, or in the cool library.

Rooms are split into Pool Suites and Ocean Suites depending on their location. The colour scheme is neutral with luxurious furnishings including king-sized bed and armchair, while a pretty sliding screen conceals an open-plan ensuite bathroom with hot-water shower, bathtub, twin vanities, and dressing space. Outside is a private courtyard with plunge pool, seating area and dining table.
