Hotel overview

Amanwella is situated within a coconut grove on a private beach close to the fishing town of Tangalle in southern Sri Lanka. The beach resort’s name derives from the combination of the words aman, or “peace” in Sanskrit, and wella, the Sinhalese name for “beach”. All the suites are contemporary in design and feature their own plunge pool and terrace. The suites are dotted on a hillside meaning they all benefit from stunning views of the ocean and beach, with two rocky headlands either side. The property offers 27 suites, a library, a spa, a swimming pool, lounge bar and many dining experiences with the Pool Terrace - ideal for alfresco dining and The Beach Club - providing an alternative venue for lunch and private dinners.

Types of Rooms


The 13 Suites enjoy varying views of the coconut grove and ocean. Two sides of the room are made up of floor-to-ceiling glass; one side opens out onto the private courtyard and plunge pool, the other onto a terrace overlooking the tree tops and the sea . 

Ocean Suites

Ocean Suites enjoy uninterrupted views of the coconut grove and beach. Most of the 14 Ocean Suites are free-standing, although four sets of suites share a connecting door on the terrace, making these rooms ideal for families or couples travelling together.

Room Amenities

All suites include a king-size bed, writing desk, armchair with footstool and a credenza featuring a personal bar with refreshments, open-plan bathroom featuring a free-standing bathtub, twin vanities, dressing area, shower and toilet, a terrace including a dining table with two chairs and a double sun lounger and a plunge pool.
