Seasons in Sri Lanka
A contemporary beach retreat on the coast of Sri Lanka, the Amanwella encompasses a peaceful coastline where nature, wellness, and the local community are intimately intertwined. Derived from the Sanskrit word for âpeaceâ, Aman, and the Sinhalese word for âbeachâ, wella, the name Amanwella is self-explanatory. The Amanwella is tucked away in a secluded and tranquil cove on Sri Lankaâs Southern Coast, offering guests a private and relaxing tropical hideaway. The hotel boasts 27 contemporary suites that dot the hillside overlooking the Indian Ocean, each with private terraces, dining tables and loungers. The layout and set up of the suites provides guests with total privacy in their own tropical home-from-home.
The restaurant looks out over the palm-fringed bay from an elevated platform and terrace, allowing guests to dine in the presence of stunning views. The restaurant proudly serves up the âcatch of the dayâ which is delivered fresh from the local fishermanâs boat, can not get much fresher. The ingredients are locally-grown, including curry leaves and spices, providing guests with a true experience of the hearty flavour of Sri Lanka. The continual tropical climate ensures fragrant spices, fresh seafood and vibrant fruits and vegetables all year round. Guests also have the intriguing opportunity to visit the local markets with the Amanwellaâs chef to discover more about the fertile islandâs agriculture.
Amanwellaâs golden-sand beach is ideal for activities including surfing, snorkelling, whale-watching and fishing. The guests can also visit the nearby Rekawa Turtle Conservation grounds to watch giant turtles lay their eggs by moonlight, a truly memorable experience. The jungled coast is home to the cultural riches of Southern Sri Lanka and an infinite number of natural treasures, such Yala and Udawalawe National Parks, where leopards and elephants can be readily seen. The nearby seaside town of Tangalle offers a huge diversity of flora and fauna to be admired and enjoyed by visitors. The location of the Amanwella allows guests to feel secluded and relaxed with undisturbed privacy, but yet not isolated and still close to local cultures, such as the village of Palapotta whose rich heritage offer visitors a true cultural immersion.
