Amanwella, Sri Lanka
A unique hotel with serene and luxurious setting. Amanwella has
an extremely privileged topography; raised above the beach between
two rocky headlands it hugs the beguiling Indian Ocean in
resplendent seclusion and beachside tranquillity.
The modern and calm, serene and luxurious retreat blends
inextricably with its locale through the extensive use of regional
materials and aesthetics; distinctive terracotta roof tiles,
hand-hewn stone walls, water features, terrazzo floors and sliding
terrace doors. Every Amanwella suite benefits from its own
sparkling pale aqua plunge pool and the main swimming pool features
a unique 'internal wall' design, with uninterrupted views of the
staggering front stage of palms, beach and ocean.
Nature rules in this part of the world and Amanwella enjoys a
privileged setting from which to observe some of the rare marvels:
seasonal egg laying by giant turtles on nearby beaches, protected
elephant herds in national parks, sweeping vistas with dramatic
sunsets and dancing foliage, the crystalline waters of the Indian
Ocean and extraordinary topographical features.
