Information

Floors:1, Rooms:1, Check-in time:14:00, Check-out time:12:00

Amanwella’s linear design is a triumph of tropical minimalism and it takes its inspiration from the work of the late modernist architect Geoffrey Bawa.

Working with the natural elevation of the land, the resort remains faithful to Aman’s philosophy of barefoot luxury; the swivel-windowed restaurant and bar sit above a capacious pool while the freestanding suites, crafted from locally sourced stone and timber, peep out discreetly from the hillside opposite.

The service doesn’t quite live up to Aman’s high standards, however from a Sri Lankan standpoint, staff are efficient and butlers very knowledgeable about the resort and local area. The main pool spans 47 metres and there are two spa suites high on the hillside. There’s a library, a boutique and a beach club for daytime dining, though unfortunately no gym.

Location

Area Info: Tangalle lies some five miles (eight kilometres) to the east and local sights include Mulkirigala Rock Temple, Rekawa’s turtle beach and crafts villages.

Address: Amanwella, Bodhi Mawatha, Wella Wathura, Godellawela, Tangalle, Sri Lanka

Area Info

The palm fringed bay and picturesque coves of Tangalle are a natural treasure. This is a lazy town littered with gentle reminders of the Dutch days of the 18th century and beautiful villas looking out over the shimmering sands of Seenimodera.

Located 195 kilometres form the beautiful capital of Colombo and 35km east of Matara, is a pleasant fishing port situated on one of the finest and largest bays in the island, which is protected from the ocean by an enclosing reef. You can arrive at this exquisite destination both by train and bus or hired transport within 4 to 5 hours. Exhibiting fine beaches which are good for swimming and more than reasonable for diving, Tangalle is a popular beach destination on the south coast.

It is believed that the name is derived from ran-gala or golden rock, from a legend that tells of a time when a holy man once partook of a meal there, and the rock was turned to gold whilst further research also reveals that it means the “projecting rock”, because long ago the town was protected from the ocean by a long rocky slab that projected into the sea across the mouth of the bay.

Tangalle has spread since those days, so that it now comprises not just one bay but a series of them. Approaching Tangalle from the west, you will encounter Goyambokka and Pallikkudawa, situated on a double bay south of the town.
