Amanwella, Tangalle, Sri Lanka
Sunsets streak the evening sky with an orchestra of fuchsias and gold, a spectacular performance witnessed through a display of gently fluttering palms on a platform of long white beach. Amanwella has an extremely privileged topography; raised above the beach between two rocky headlands it hugs the beguiling Indian Ocean in resplendent seclusion and beach side tranquillity.
Location and Transfers
Amanwella is situated close to the village of Tangalle and is 4 hours 30 minutes by car from Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport. As an alternative there is a scheduled Sea Plane transfer four times a week to the south, guests may either charter this or a helicopter available through Deccan Aviation.
Sublime recommends that guests combine their stay at Amanwella with a visit to Amangalla.
