Tangalle, Sri Lanka
On Sri Lanka’s sun-drenched south coast near the fishing village of Tangalle, a winding track through lush jungle finally reveals Amanwella and its incomparable seaside setting. Perched above its beach that stretches the length of the bay, this tranquil retreat inspired by the Tropical Modernism of famed Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa, is designed for blissful seclusion. On a hillside fringed with mature coconut palms, guest suites each offer their own private terrace and plunge pool, while the Restaurant overlooking the resort’s 47-meter swimming pool offers an elevated dining experience, the Beach Club situated at sea-level provides a laid back, beachside affair. Beyond the resort lie some of the island’s most revered temples, rolling tea plantations, and National Parks.
The serene waters of Mawella Lagoon provide an ideal setting for sunrise or sunset canapés aboard Amanwella’s floating lounge. With a glass of champagne in hand, drift along the verdant shoreline and out into the tranquil deep, spotting pelicans, kingfishers and other water birds as the calm surface reflects the sky above.
Sri Lanka is renowned for its surf and attracts both experienced and novice surfers year-round. The beaches near Amanwella boast a range of breaks for all levels, and the resort can arrange one-on-on lessons with experienced local surfers.
As darkness falls, gather inside a traditional mud home, surrounded by jungle and savor this delicious and authentic taste of village life by candlelight as the Aman team prepares various traditional Sri Lankan courses.
