Amanwella of Amanresorts, sits alongside the Indian Ocean in privileged seclusion. The clean, contemporary lines of the resort offer a restful backdrop for a perfectly tranquil respite from the modern world. Nature remains untamed close by, waves crashing against rocks to one side and jungle fauna to the other, to revive the senses.

Sunsets streak the evening sky with an orchestra of fuchsias and gold, a spectacular performance witnessed through a display of gently fluttering palms on a platform of long white beach. Amanwella has an extremely privileged topography; raised above the beach between two rocky headlands it hugs the beguiling Indian Ocean in resplendent seclusion and beachside tranquility.

Amanwella is modern and calm, serene and stylish, a retreat dedicated to its environment with an innate understanding of what is required to enjoy the spoils of this rich land without compromising on location, authenticity or modern necessities. The clean vertical lines of Amanwella contrast with the rugged landscape creating a sense of calm, serenity and luxuriance that enables guests to unwind while enjoying the highlights of its rich coastal surroundings. The scenery is tropically stamped: long white beaches, tall leaning palms, rocky outcrops, dense turquoise ocean, a buzzing local village life, nearby rock temples, and heart-surging wildlife.

Nature rules in this part of the world and Amanwella enjoys a privileged setting from which to observe some of the rare marvels: seasonal egg laying by giant turtles on nearby beaches, protected elephant herds in national parks, sweeping vistas with dramatic sunsets and dancing foliage, the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean and extraordinary topographical features.

The contemporary design of the resort blends inextricably with its locale through the extensive use of regional materials and aesthetics; distinctive terracotta roof tiles, hand-hewn stone walls, water features, terrazzo floors and sliding terrace doors. Every suite benefits from its own sparkling pale aqua plunge pool and the main swimming pool features a unique ‘internal wall’ design, with uninterrupted views of the staggering front stage of palms, beach and ocean.

Accommodation

Accommodation

Amanwella has designed and styled a beachfront retreat in accordance with its striking setting. Vertical modern lines harmonise with the rural nature of its equatorial host, allowing for a calm and stylish base from which to witness its splendid tropical environment. The resort’s architecture pays homage to Sri Lanka’s renowned architect Geoffrey Bawas. His approach was evocatively personal, highlighting the senses that go hand in hand with climate, landscape and modern and ancient civilisation. He brought together an appreciation of Western humanist architectural tradition together with the lifestyle and culture of his own country. This sensitive approach has been skilfully interpreted at Amanwella, using materials such as stone, timber and clay tiles, emulating a sense of oneness with nature.

The entrance is reached along a small gravel road, which takes you to a pebbled courtyard and into the serene home of Amanwella. The interiors of the 30 identical suites are suitably contemporary. The palette of soothing beige, cream, honey and wood are easy and pleasing on the eye leaving cosmic colours to their own devices. There is a calm here, a solid peace, where a dedication to nurture is reflected in its sensitivity to the environment, the result of which is a beachfront hideaway devoted to connecting the person with the joys of island alfresco.

suites

Situated mostly on the hillside, the Suites enjoy varying views of the coconut grove and ocean. Floor-to-ceiling glass and latticed panels form two sides of the dwelling – one opening onto a private walled-in entry courtyard and plunge pool, with the terrace side opposite affording open views. The plunge pool measures six by four metres and the courtyard features a banquette for lounging and dining. Timber sliding doors and panels reveal the interior spaces.

There is a combined sleeping and living room with a king-size bed, writing desk, armchair with footstool and a credenza featuring a personal bar with refreshments. Sliding screens divide this area from the open-plan bathroom featuring a free-standing bathtub, twin vanities, dressing area, shower and toilet. Access to the spacious terrace is again via sliding doors from the living areas and the bathroom. The terrace includes a dining table with two chairs and a double sunlounger. Terrazzo floors are finished in muted, sandy tones that reflect the beach setting. Three sets of suites share a connecting door on the terrace. These are ideal for families or couples travelling together.
ocean suites

Ocean Suites are situated on the lower levels of the hill and enjoy uninterrupted views of the coconut grove and beach. Most are free-standing, although four sets of suites share a connecting door on the terrace. Again, these are ideal for families or couples travelling together.

Spa treatments

Spa Treatments at Amanwella are available in the privacy of guests’ suites, in the Spa Suite or in selected garden locations amidst the coconut grove. The spa menu includes facials, massages and body treatments, including soaks in baths accompanied by fresh king coconut juice or a bottle of champagne.

Beach

Amanwella’s golden sand beach is located in an 800m crescent-shaped cove, fringed with palm trees.

During the winter months guests can enjoy swimming on calmer days, while snorkelling is possible along the southern headland, usually protected from the ocean swell during the dry season. Complimentary snorkelling equipment is available.

During the summer months large waves make swimming conditions less favourable, but beach strolls and sunbathing are particularly enjoyable with the cooling onshore breeze.

Excursions

Excursions

village nature walks

Amanwella is situated in the heart of Wella Wathuara village. An early morning or evening stroll along the village paths that wind through the jungle provide an interesting insight into daily village life. Chances abound to also view the diverse wildlife in the area including monkeys, birds, mouse deer, monitor lizards, hares and mongooses.

mulgirigala rock temple

Situated 35 minutes north of Tangalle, Mulgirigala is a monastic site on an isolated 210m high rock that rises almost vertically out of the surrounding forest. The rock was the site of an important discovery - the Tika ola-leaf scripts discovered in the 19th century by George Tumour. These scripts offered a key to the translation of Sri Lanka's most informative ancient text, the 'Mahavamsa'.

bundala national park

Located 1¼ hours east of Tangalle, this area of open scrub around the coast offers great opportunities for bird-watching (with around 150 reported species) and the occasional sighting of elephants and crocodiles. The salt pans attract a vast number of migratory shore birds, making this 6,216 hectare park one of the most important wetlands in Sri Lanka. The best time to visit Bundala is between November and March when the winter migratory birds arrive. Numerous grey langur monkeys populate the larger trees and in the scrub jungle you may also come across jackals, hares and spotted deer.

uda walawe national park

Situated 1½ hours north-east of Tangalle, this is one of the island’s most popular national parks totalling 30,800 hectares in size and bordering a reservoir. It is best known for its elephants (estimated to number around 400, including six tuskers) and birdwatching opportunities. It is primarily open parkland traversed by a river and numerous streams which makes elephant sightings particularly accessible. Often the pachyderms can be seen in herds of up to 100 or more. Other animals which may be sighted here include spotted deer, langur monkeys, jackal, wild boar and water buffalo.
