Sri Lanka's Sublime Aman Experience

9 days from £4,200 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 47m 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.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
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.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
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
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
