Amanwella is a chic beachfront sanctuary set in a secluded crescent-shaped bay in Tangalle, located in Sri Lanka’s south coast
This stylish beach retreat, located 8 km from the small town of Tangalle, is hidden amongst coconut groves on the gentle slopes of a hill and its understated contemporary wood and glass design complements the stunning surroundings.
Amanwella has 27 luxury suites - nestled on the hillside facing the bay - each with its own private plunge pool and large private terrace. There’s also a spectacular 47-meter infinity pool which overlooks the 800-meter tropical beach and the Indian Ocean.
With its laid back atmosphere and tranquil setting, Amanwella is the perfect place to unwind. However if you wish to do more than simply relax by the idyllic pool or stroll along the palm-fringed beach there are plenty of activities and excursions you can enjoy during your time here.
Snorkelling is fantastic in the winter when the sea is calm, whilst surfing is an option in the summer months when conditions are favourable.
The hotel offers guided nature walks, including visits to the local village spotting wildlife and birdlife along the way.
Local places of interest include Mulkirigala which is a 210-meter ancient Buddhist rock temple, Bundala, Udawalawe and Yala National Park.
The Turtle Conservation Project at Rekawa Beach is also near Tangalle. Unlike the turtle hatcheries on the west coast of Sri Lanka the eggs here are left undisturbed in the sand and are protected in situ.
You can also join whale watching excursions from December to April.
