Amanwella Sri Lanka
Combining modernist lines and indigenous materials, guest suites are inspired by the work of famed Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa; flooded with light, they each open on two sides to private plunge pools and large terraces overlooking the Indian Ocean. Away from the palm-shaded private beach club and the 47-metre pool, the area’s diverse attractions – from tea plantations to treks and temple visits – capture Sri Lanka at its most authentic.
Amanwella lies on Sri Lanka’s quiet southern coast, around 80km east of Galle (home to Amangalla) and 190km south of the capital, Colombo. The seaside town of Tangalle is Amanwella’s nearest community, around 3.5km east along the coast. Amanwella is served by Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport. From the airport, guests can journey 50 minutes by air taxi to Dickwella, a 20-minute drive from the property. Amanwella can also arrange car transfers from Colombo.
