The discerning traveller to Sri Lanka can enjoy the world renowned Aman Resorts experience - pampered indulgence in a setting of matchless elegance. Romantic Amanwella stands amid a mature hillside coconut grove above an 800m crescent beach near the quiet village of Tangalle, 2 hours drive east of Galle. Leave all the stress and noise behind when you enter this resort and prepare for outstanding service and relaxation with an impressive library, coupled with one of the quietest beaches on the island. Amanwella boasts a bay of its own where guests may snorkel amongst the rocks or just cool off in the ocean before relaxing on their private terrace. A fusion of island tradition, with terracotta tiles and hand-hewn stone, and minimalist decor with soft neutral tones- tranquillity is the theme where in the background, light music mingles with the sound of the ocean. The 45-metre infinity pool in the heart of the resort boasts magnificent sunsets with the restaurant and lounge just opposite, creating a central comfort zone. The Beach Club is an open pavilion ideal for an exotic sundowner. End the day with a hypnotic spa treatment specialising in fresh oils and herbs.

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 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.
