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.


Suites – situated mostly on the hillside, feature a private walled-in entry courtyard and plunge pool, a combined sleeping and living room, bathroom featuring a free-standing bathtub and a spacious terrace. Three sets of suites share a connecting door on the terrace. These are ideal for families or couples travelling together

Ocean Suites – situated on the lower levels of the hill and enjoy uninterrupted views of the coconut grove and beach. Most are free-standing, although four sets of suites share a connecting door on the terrace. Again, these are ideal for families or couples travelling together
