A destination which has been gathering speed over recent years, Sri Lanka is blessed with an interesting history, religious diversity, varied flora and fauna and an increasingly developed tourism industry. Situated close to the village of Tangalle, the Amanwella resort is set within a mature coconut grove fronting a crescent shaped beach. The property offers 30 suites, each with a private terrace and plunge pool. Exclusive facilities include the property’s Restaurant and Lounge Bar which are housed in open pavilions and are set at the eastern end of the property, offering beautiful views of the swimming pool, coconut grove, beach and sea, as well as the suites which curve around the bay in a graceful arch. Each suite features ocean or coconut plantation views from the private terrace on one side and a plunge pool on the other.
