Travelling around Asia

Launch a multi-destination Aman journey in the region where it all began. With 18 resorts across 11 countries, it’s never been easier to linger for longer in Asia.

After relaxing on Sri Lanka’s south coast at beachside Amanwella in Tangalle, where wildlife safaris, surfing and whale watching are among the immersive activities, take the hour-long drive to Galle to experience the narrow history-rich streets, cinnamon estates and temples surrounding Amangalla. Easily twinned with India, Sri Lanka might also act as a starting point to explore the golden leopard-roamed Aravalli Hills around Amanbagh or the luxury tented suites of Aman-i-Khás in Ranthambore, Rajasthan’s premier tiger-prowled national park.
