Sri Lanka’s Sublime Aman Experience

8 days from £4,550 per person

Combine the discovery of 400-year old Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the balmy seclusion of a palm-fringed golden beach on a journey that reveals the rich dimensions of Sri Lanka's colourful south coast. We think the Amangalla is the most stylish colonial hotel in Asia, set right in the heart of the fort. The property oozes sophisticated luxury and old-world charm with its antique furniture, polished teak floors and high ceilings. The Amangalla's architect, Kerry Hill, has maintained the unique history of the building allowing you step right back to Galle's colonial heyday with all its genteel ambience. The suites are simply perfect, with soothing muted colours, colonial furniture, swing jazz music wafting through the room and freestanding bathtubs. 

A two-hour drive east of Galle brings you to the ultra sexy Amanwella, a contemporary and understated beachfront resort - the perfect contrast to the Amangalla. Situated in a mature coconut grove fronting a crescent-shaped beach by the town of Tangalle, its design pays homage to Sri Lanka's renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa and there is plenty of open air living space, a 47-metre infinitiy pool, a restaurant with stunning sea views and a beach club for a private lunch or dinner surrounded by coconut palms. Excursions to historic rock temples and tours to spot wildlife in Sri Lanka's national parks are day trip options.

This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your very own tailor-made tour of Sri Lanka. If you are feeling inspired and would like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Honeymoons and Ultimate Luxury holidays, as well as our favourite Beach, Fly & Flop and Spa & Wellness itineraries.

Client Testimonials

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
