Venue Setting

Amanwella is situated in a mature coconut grove fronting a crescent-shaped beach close to the fishing town of Tangalle in southern Sri Lanka. Our luxury private beach resort in Sri Lanka derives its name by combining the words aman, or “peace” in Sanskrit, and wella, the Sinhalese name for “beach”. All the suites of this contemporary beachfront resort feature their own plunge pool and terrace. Linked by pathways, suites are interspersed along the hillside to the west of the public areas, providing views of the ocean and beach flanked by two rocky headlands.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Amanwella is on one of the most unspoiled crescent-shaped coves in the southernmost part of Sri Lanka, blessed with the rich marine waters of the Indian Ocean and the warmth of the tropical sun, nourished by rains of both the southwest and northeast monsoon, and sculpted with mature coconut trees and wild vegetation. Immerse in our array of Culture or Wildlife experiences ranging from a visit to a monastic site on a 210-metre high rock, embark on a nature-adventure to one of three world-class National Parks, observe whales, dolphins, sea turtles on an ocean safari, or simply unwind on the pristine white-sand beach. Amanwella offers a lifestyle experience, one without limitations.
Amanwella has designed and styled a beachfront retreat in accordance with its striking setting. Vertical modern lines harmonise with the rural nature of its equatorial host, allowing for a calm and stylish base from which to witness its splendid tropical environment. The resort’s architecture pays homage to Sri Lanka’s renowned architect Geoffrey Bawas. His approach was evocatively personal, highlighting the senses that go hand in hand with climate, landscape and modern and ancient civilisation. He brought together an appreciation of Western humanist architectural tradition together with the lifestyle and culture of his own country. This sensitive approach has been skilfully interpreted at Amanwella, using materials such as stone, timber and clay tiles, emulating a sense of oneness with nature.

Perched eight metres above sea level, it offers stunning views across the pool towards the coconut grove and beach. Table seating is on two elevated levels and outdoor seating is available on another lower level. Inside the Restaurant, doors open onto an internal grassed courtyard landscaped with frangipani trees and reflecting pools. The cuisine is Asian and Mediterranean with an emphasis on local seafood from the Indian Ocean. Adjacent to the Restaurant is the Lounge and Bar which also enjoys panoramic views. Here drinks and snacks are served along with exotic sundowners. A selection of cigars is also available until late. The Pool Terrace adjacent to the swimming pool is ideal for alfresco dining. During the day, simple lunches as well as fresh young coconuts and local fruit are served. In the evening guests can dine on antipasti and home-style dishes while relaxing on the daybeds and bolsters. Close to the beachfront amidst coconut trees and away from the main building, the Beach Club provides an alternative venue for lunch and private dinners. The menu includes simple Asian salads, Mediterranean classics (using the local seafood), granitas and freshly churned ice cream. Seafood is cooked over a coconut charcoal barbeque and served with garden fresh salads and local relishes.
