Top 10s logo 

Amanwella features in Ampersand's Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia, our Top 10 Beach Hotels and our Top 10 Swimming Pools.

Tucked into a mature coconut grove overlooking a crescent-shaped beach, Amanwella lies on Sri Lanka’s picturesque south coast near the fishing village of Tangalle.

A contemporary beachside hotel, Amanwella comprises of 30 suites each with its own private plunge pool and terrace. All suites are identical in layout and design and fall into two categories; pool or ocean pool depending on their location. The suites are contemporary and oriental in design, with muted, sandy tones to reflect the beach setting, but at the same time blend local materials and styles, such as the distinctive terracotta roof tiles and hand-built stonewalls. Designed for seamless indoor/outdoor living, the suites open on both sides to let in cooling sea breezes. Floor-to-ceiling glass and latticed panels reveal a private walled-in courtyard and pool on the entrance side, and on the other side they open onto a spacious terrace with a double sun lounger, an alfresco dining area for two and expansive views of the bay.

The hotel’s design is inspired by Sri Lanka’s most notable modern architect, Geoffrey Bawa; the arrival pavilion is a colonnaded, open-air structure, overlooking a grass courtyard and a reflection pool surrounding the free-standing library. The Restaurant and the Lounge Bar are elegant spaces on either side of the library and are open on all sides, offering spectacular views of the bay below. The Restaurant is open all day and serves delicious Asian and Mediterranean cuisines with a strong emphasis on freshly caught seafood. The relaxed Lounge Bar provides a range of drinks and snacks, as well as a selection of cigars, and is an ideal spot for sundowners. From the terrace outside these two dining venues, steps lead down to the unique 47-metre infinity swimming pool, which also boasts magnificent views of the coconut grove, the beach and the sea beyond. The Pool Terrace backs the swimming pool and is ideal for alfresco dining during the day. There is also the Beach Club on western end of the beach, an open pavilion with a wooden deck for lounging and informal dining of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.

Amanwella provides a very quiet location for complete relaxation.

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
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, 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
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
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
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
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
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
