Thanks again for a very enjoyable two weeks.

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: This Aman Resorts property is located right on a tranquil crescent beach in the middle of a coconut grove.

History: Designed by one of Sri Lanka’s most important architects, Geoffrey Bawa, this property combines modern comfort with traditional local materials.

Service: With only 30 suites, guests are treated to personalized round-the-clock service and top-notch Sri Lankan hospitality.


The Amanwella is positioned on a quiet crescent beach, offering up pristine waters and untouched coastline. There’s also an infinity pool on the oceanfront, with panoramic views and sheltered sun loungers and daybeds for ultimate relaxation. A library and boutique are also on-site, plus a spa offering a variety of wellness treatments.


The Library is stocked with novels, magazines, board games and reference book on Sri Lankan art, history, culture and flora and fauna. There’s also a desktop PC with internet access free of charge.


In an environment like coastal Sri Lanka, a beautiful pool is a must and the Amanwella fulfils this need with a 47-meter long infinity pool that offers panoramic ocean vistas. Surrounded by wide decking and sun loungers, guests can order refreshments at the Pool Terrace and while away hours in the tropical sunshine.


No holiday would be complete without a massage, and the spa offers a variety of different massages, facials and body treatments. Traditional therapies are available using local ingredients from Sri Lankan herbs and flowers. Treatments can be taken at the spa, in guest rooms or amid the coconut trees in the gardens.


This boutique property offers a selection of different dining options, many of which entail gorgeous waterfront views and refreshing sea breezes. A main restaurant and bar are open all day, and there’s a Beach Club that serves up international and Asian cuisine, as well as seafood BBQ.

Bar and Lounge

Next to the Restaurant, guests can enjoy a wide range of fine wines and cocktails. Sun-downers are served every night, snacks are available and guests can select from a range of cigars at their leisure.


The main Restaurant is split over two levels with indoor and outdoor seating available. Eight meters above sea level, it offers guests panoramic views of the water, with a serene courtyard area full of frangipanis and reflection ponds on the other side. Asian, Mediterranean and fresh Indian Ocean seafood are all available here.

The Beach Club

Separate from the main Restaurant, the Beach Club is positioned right on the beach, and offers coconut charcoal BBQ and a menu of Asian cuisine, Mediterranean seafood dishes and garden salads. Homemade ice cream, and Sri Lankan relishes add local flavour.

The Pool Terrace

For poolside drinks and snacks, guests can order from the Pool Terrace. Refreshing young coconut water is served as well as a selection of antipasti.
