Amanwella, Tangalle

West Coast Beaches, Sri Lanka
5+ star

Hotel Overview

One of the most luxurious properties in Sri Lanka, Amanwella is set on a hillside overlooking the beach just outside Tangalle. 

Six hours from Colombo airport and two and a half hours from Galle, it’s perfect for those looking for peace, privacy and escapism.

The 30 spacious suites at Amanwella are identical in layout and design. Choose from an Ocean View which are the row closest to the sea or Partial Ocean View which are behind the Ocean View suites. Each suite boasts a large bedroom with sitting area and equally large bathroom; an expansive balcony and small plunge pool. The suites are a TV free zone.

At the main area of the hotel is an infinity pool and sun terraces which overlook the beach and ocean, the main restaurant which serves mouth-watering cuisine, both International and Sri Lankan, and bar. A second restaurant (seasonal) is located on the beach amidst the coconut trees. Two of the suites have been converted into a spa offering reasonably priced treatments.

Yala National Park - where you may spot the illusive Sri Lankan leopard, and Udawalawe National Park - home to around 500 elephants, are both approximately 2 hours drive of Amanwella. The hotel can arrange safaris for wildlife lovers to both national parks.

Note: During the summer months it is not recommend to swim in the sea due to large waves and unpredictable tides.
