Sri Lanka

An island of a thousand stories

From colonial-era chronicles to ancient Hindu epics, centuries of stories come to life on Sri Lanka’s southwestern shores. Scenery segues from ramshackle roadside fruit stalls to vivid green jungle, then blurs into paddy fields, golden arcs of sand and turquoise waters, frothing white with the waves of the Laccadive Sea. This unique island country serves a sense-stimulating cocktail of nature, history and modern-day cultural riches. Step back in time and discover the Unesco treasures of the fort city of Galle, then venture along the coast to the soft sandy shores of Tangalle, gateway to a world of nature and a slower, more mindful mode of life.

The opportunities for happy living are greater in Ceylon than anywhere else I’ve been so far

Paul Bowles
In the teardrop island’s Southern Province, Aman’s twinset of hotels each express a different dimension of Sri Lanka’s identity. In the ramparts of Galle Fort, Amangalla harks back across the centuries to the days of colonial Ceylon. Every cinnamon-scented moment spent within these walls is an edifying amble through Portuguese, Dutch, British and Sri Lankan history. An hour to the east, the beachside retreat of Amanwella shifts the dial to a more modern sensibility and a mood of unrivalled calm.

Amangalla

Galle Fort is a storehouse of eras, a miniature maze where each building tells a different chapter in the history of Sri Lanka and the nations that shaped it. On an island of a thousand stories, the fort acts as custodian to a multitude of memories, a unique library of narratives translated from many different languages. Once a Dutch governor's mansion at the heart of the fort, Amangalla is the cinnamon-scented gateway to centuries of Portuguese, Dutch, British and Sri Lankan history, and a tranquil base for exploring the island's contemporary culture.

Amangalla, Sri Lanka - Galle
Venture into the countryside to discover ancient temples, tea plantations and traditional craft villages. Navigate your way around the fresh produce stalls of Galle's markets, guided by an Amangalla chef, and return to the hotel for a lesson in clay-pot cooking. And, as the sun sinks into the Indian Ocean, join the city's residents as they make their leisurely passeggiata around the historic lighthouse and along the ramparts, digesting the adventures of the day.

Amanwella

Close to the midpoint of Sri Lanka's southern coast, Tangalle is blessed with the mildest climate and most beautiful shoreline in the province. A meandering seaside road passes through dense jungle and a string of small villages towards Amanwella and its 800 metres of golden beach. A grove of king coconut palms stands between the private Tropical Modernist hideaway and the spectacular stretch of sand, bookended by the brightly painted, net-draped fishing boats that provide Aman's chefs with the freshest fish from the day's catch.

Amanwella, Sri Lanka - Surfing
The perfect combination of wind and waves promises excellent surf for ocean bound thrill-seekers. For snorkellers, the wildlife below the surface is almost as impressive as the peacock-roamed, elephant-trodden land above it. 

Like many parts of Sri Lanka, the jungle region around Tangalle is dotted with villages where artisans have perfected their crafts for generations. In Palapotta, a master potter shares the secrets of terracotta with Amanwella guests, whereas not far away, the craftswomen of Dickwella preserve the delicate art of lacemaking.

Experience Spotlight

Amanwella, Sri Lanka - Safari Experience

Safaris and Sanctuaries

Just 90 minutes from Amanwella, a brace of national parks promise wildlife sightings to rival the most celebrated African game reserves. Herds of wild elephant roam the grasslands of Udawalawe National Park; kingfishers and hornbills perch in the trees, and water buffalo cautiously eye the mugger crocodiles as they glide lazily along the river. Leopard spotters head to Yala, the island’s biggest park and home to the world’s largest concentration of the elusive big cat. The patient and the lucky are often rewarded with a glimpse. A visit to an elephant sanctuary never fails to stir the heart, offering up the sight of orphaned young residents as they make their stumbling stepsto collect their leafy meals, legs unsteady and trunks a-twirling.
Amanwella, Sri Lanka - Temple Visits

Spiritual inspiration

The coastal route between Amangalla and Amanwella is dotted with spiritual sites, ancient and modern. The rock temples of Mulkirigala Raja Maha Viharaare among the most mesmerising and dramatic. Situated on a natural monolith more than 200m high, the Buddhist complex is believed to have been constructed in the third century. Those with the stamina to face its near-vertical ancient steps will discover five staggered levels of seven caves where enormous Buddha statues in bold colours recline, stand and sit. The drama of the wall paintings and sculpturesis as breath-stealing as the ascent.
Amanwella, Sri Lanka - Culinary Experiences

Spices and sambals

With a panoply of fresh and fragrant spices always available courtesy of the island’s tropical climate, the traditional national dish of curry and rice exists in a plethora of variants. Aman’s authentic take on Sri Lanka’s culinary tradition proposes a generous banquet of small bowls; flavoursome spicy concoctions of coconut, chilli, turmeric, coriander and seasonal vegetables accompanied by aromatic chutneys.

This daily parade of curries and tangy sambals starts with rice-noodle string hoppers or bowl-like pancake hoppers for breakfast, ending with cardamom-enhanced buffalo curd and smoky treacle jaggery, every bit as delicious and heartfelt as that made every day in the neighbouring village homes.
