On 15 September, LATTE attended an event hosted by Amanresorts at Bentley Restaurant, Sydney, taking the opportunity to showcase two of its Sri Lankan properties to guests, Amanwella and Amangalla.



Amanwella is situated in a coconut grove near the fishing village of Tangalle in southern Sri Lanka. The resort derives its name from the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ and wella, Sinhalese for ‘beach’.

Offering 30 suites, each has its own plunge pool and terrace and are linked by pathways. They are situated along the hillside to the west of public areas that include the Arrival Pavilion, Library, Spa, Restaurant and Lounge Bar, swimming pool, and The Beach Club. Suites are mostly free-standing but families have the option of those connected by a terrace door. All are built facing the sea and are finished with floor-to-ceiling glass panels.

Aman suggests that a stay of 3 days or longer is the ultimate length of time at Amanwella, before or after visiting its second Sri Lankan resort, Amangalla, which is a 2-hour drive away.



Amangalla is a colonial building, with rooms appointed with four-poster king-size beds and furniture that are either original antiques from the New Oriental Hotel or reproductions.

The Great Hall is the entry point to the hotel and guests can choose from a menu featuring light meals, snacks and afternoon tea served daily.

The Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and provides a choice of Sri Lankan curries and home-cooked dishes, while guests can also enjoy alfresco breakfast under the Flamboyan tree overlooking the pool.

The hotel also features a Library, swimming pool the spa, known as ‘The Baths’.


Five nights: Guests staying 5 nights at Amangalla and Amanwella (minimum 2-night stay in each resort) will enjoy complimentary breakfast, transfer between resorts, mini-bar and afternoon tea as well as a tour of the Fort at Amangalla and a Mulgirigala rock temple tour at Amanwella.

Seven nights: Amanresorts recommends a stay of 7 nights, guests staying for a week will enjoy an additional half board which includes daily lunch or dinner.
