About Amanwella

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 “peace”, Aman, and the Sinhalese word for “beach”, wella, the name Amanwella is self-explanatory. The Amanwella is tucked away in a secluded and tranquil cove on Sri Lanka’s 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 “catch of the day” which is delivered fresh from the local fisherman’s 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 Amanwella’s chef to discover more about the fertile island’s agriculture.

Location

Amanwella’s 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.

How to get there

Within reach of Colombo airport (CMB) the Amanwella is easily accessible. The resort is also located near Dickwella Airport (DIW) where local flights land, and also near a heliport for access by helicopters.

When to go

The finest weather runs from November through to April. The rainy season is traditionally from May to July, though the sun is rarely out of sight for long. August and September are the driest months and the rain then returns in October/November. For snorkelling and diving, the calm waters in December are ideal.
