Set above a secluded crescent-shaped bay, Amanwella is a triumph of minimalism and is quite literally the definition of barefoot luxury.
Amanwella is a palm-fringed crescent of pale, powdery sand with a turquoise sea and a sublime design scheme dedicated to the legacy of Sri Lankan master architect Geoffrey Bawa. Amanwella combines style, sophistication, simplicity and natural beauty in exactly the right measures.
Tangalle lies some five miles to the east of Amanwella and a whole host of sites are at your disposal: Mulkirigala Rock Temple and Rekawa's turtle beach.
The guest bungalows are artfully arranged along an elevated ridge above the beach. With their open, loft-like configuration and their cleverly concealed private swimming pools, they are easily the most elegant guest villas in all of Asia.
The restaurant at Amanwella is poised on a long, thin terrace that takes in the entire view of the crescent-shaped, palm-fringed bay. The food is signature Sri Lankan with a cosmopolitan twist. Through their dishes, they pay tribute to Italy's rich culinary heritage and Japan's artistry.
The bar sits adjacent to the restaurant and has a whole host of drinks available by request. The hotel's signature cocktail is an arrack sour so be sure to give it a try.
With floor-to-ceiling glass doors on both sides of your suite, you'll struggle to find an area that doesn't offer the most spectacular views of the stunning Indian Ocean.
