Rooms & Suites: 30
Situated amidst a mature coconut grove fronting a crescent shaped beach close to the village of Tangalle in southern Sri Lanka.
The resort derives its name by combining the words, aman, or "peace" in Sanskrit, and wella, the Sinhalese name for beach. All 30 suites of this beachfront resort feature their own private swimming pool and terrace. The resort is accessed via a gravel road that opens onto a pebbled courtyard and entrance pavilion. An ascending colonnade leads to the public areas. The reception is on the left while to the right are two grassed courtyards, separated by the Library and a reflecting pool. Beyond one courtyard is the Lounge and Bar and adjacent to the other is the Restaurant.
Steps lead to the unique, rectangular 45-metre infinity swimming pool. Overlooking the pool are two large sun terraces with sun loungers. Located in the coconut grove metres from the sea, is the Beach Club, an open pavilion with a wooden deck ideal for lounging and light, informal dining. Suites, linked by pathways, are interspersed along the hillside to the west of the public areas. Most are within comfortable walking distance and a small resort vehicle is available for transport to the more elevated levels. There are sweeping views of the ocean and the beach, flanked by two rocky headlands.
