Amanwella in Tangalle, Sri Lanka

Coconut palms sway above the golden sand beach at Amanwella, a tranquil hideaway set in a cove on Sri Lanka’s southern coast. The seaside town of Tangalle is nearby and Sri Lanka’s diverse flora and fauna is ready to be explored. The 27 contemporary Suites dot the hillside above the Indian Ocean, opening onto private terraces with dining tables and loungers. Facials, massages and body treatments are available in the privacy of your Suite, or within isolated spots beside the seaside or jungle. The Restaurant and Beach Club specialize in locally-caught seafood as well as vibrant Sri Lankan curry dishes.

Amanwella’s golden-sand beach is ideal for activities ranging from surfing and snorkeling to whale watching and fishing in the Indian Ocean. Nearby, the jungled coast is home to the cultural riches of southern Sri Lanka and infinite natural treasures such as those at the Yala and Udawalawe national parks, where leopards and elephants can be seen, as well as the Bundala Bird Sanctuary.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Amanwella for 3 days in April 2018. We are both Amanjunkies and have stayed at many Amans before. It was nothing short of marvellous. We were welcomed by Filipe, the lovely GM, and given a traditional Sri Lankan welcome also with the blessing with betel leaves. Gorgeous. After a brief tour we were escorted to our beautiful Ocean View Suite (206), which I loved. The property was (I think) opened in 2004, but it has so much style and charm. The location is INCREDIBLE. Rooms tumble down the hill into the coconut trees, facing the most heavenly beach I’ve seen on Sri Lanka, and a stunning wild and exciting sea. It can be rough at times and huge waves but go in between the flags down in the coconut palms and the lifeguards / beach guys watch you and guide. Once you’re in it’s beautiful but if it’s a choppy day it can be an exciting task! Food is excellent throughout. We dined twice for breakfast (don’t miss the delicious egg hoppers and chicken curry), twice for lunch at the beach club (perfect beef and salads) and twice for dinner. All delicious, well cooked, hot and very well priced. I appreciate this in Amans, and we really enjoyed the food at Amanwella. Don’t miss the amazing afternoon teas! We had mango day and coconut day and both were so so delicious! The whole property is so stylish (Kerry Hill, the architect) and every corner is a beautiful view, from the iconic pool to the beach to the amazing Suites. Staff are kind and very eager to help and please. Special thanks to the breakfast team and also lovely Lashi by the beach for looking after us so well! Thanks to Filipe and all the team for a gorgeous stay. One day we will be back and can’t wait to see future Amanwella!

After a few hick-ups especially on the first couple of days we settled in and enjoyed this beautiful hotel. It is beautiful but it lacked warmth. We had a lovely pool bungalow, large and well laid out and except for a wild load party nearby that kept us awake the first night it was quiet and relaxing. We had a more private terrace with a pool but it was unfortunately in shade most of the day, on the other side of the room we had a nice large terrace with a spectacular view to the sea. While sitting there especially early in the mornings we spotted both peacocks, monkeys and a water monitor. The food was good, trying it out in the different food outlets, the restaurant, the bar, the beach bar and the pool. The pool was over 40 metres and a delight to do lengths in and as the sea was so rough we were happy we had the large pool. Negative was that it lacked a Spa and that the staff although well meaning and lovely most of them the lacked training and breakfast, for one, could at times be quite challenging. A lovely manager that had lots of development ideas that I hope he will be able to pull through but before that getting the staff trained should be a priority. All in all a great hotel and we would definitely consider going back.

I arrived to a lovely welcome. The room was well equipped and the hotel had thought of nearly everything to make our stay comfortable. The beach is very quiet and the view from the restaurant is delightful. There are many birds that can be observed from breakfast in the trees. The beach has big waves which may not be suitable for all swimmers.

a great place to stay if you're travelling around the country and in need of six star surroundings..the hotel itself is built on the top of a hill which in turn gives you the most incredible view over the is spread out which is lovely and spacious and has a very open feeling to it, its very relaxing, has a lovely open bar area, the room was very large with a lovely terrace, simply decorated and very comfortable.. walk down to the beach and relax the day away or sit by the largest amazing pool I have ever seen! food is fantastic and offers really fresh and great selection, either dine on the beach or in the hotel restaurant - both are lovely...staff are very friendly and most attentive with good attention to detail and the manager Fillip is extremely good at what he does in making sure he is very present at all times and there to help should you need all just the right mix to unwind with nothing to think about apart from perhaps reading a few more pages from your book! I would highly recommend the hotel should you get the chance to and would not hesitate to go back again myself - Suzy (London)

We had a fabulous time. General manager was charming and very present. The staff were incredible. Dilshan was a great waiter and his service and attention to detail was incredible. I am a details person and the entire staff at this resort were all about comfort and the finest details. Beautiful beach (water was a little rough for us) but a super tranquil and shady coconut grove along the beach gave us hours of relaxing enjoyment. Our private pool outside the room was perfect for early morning and sunset swims.
