The main restaurant is located on an elevated platform and is renowned for serving the catch of the day, delivered fresh from the local fishermen’s’ boats.

Locally-grown produce also features prominently on the menu at both the Restaurant and Beach Club, including curry leaves and spices sourced from nearby markets by the Chef himself.

If guests prefer, there are options to dine privately on the coconut grove and watch giant turtles lay their eggs by moonlight.

For a truly authentic Sri Lankan experience, travellers can opt to stay in the local village house and have food prepared in traditional clay crockery.


Amanwella boasts its own spa, promising a variety of treatments focusing on well-being and serenity.

Spa treatments can also be organised in the privacy of guest’s suites.

Snorkelling and surfing are among the best in the region, with spots nearby to suit all abilities.

Other facilities include relaxing at the beach, exploring the resort’s gardens, library and beach club.


Amanwella is a scenic five-and-a-half-hour drive from Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport. For a shorter transfer, guests can fly Cinnamon Air  for the 50-minute trip to Dickwella airstrip.

Property Highlights

There is an amazing stretch of beach to walk on, with drinks shacks along the way! It is one of the most picturesque beaches in the area. Conveniently located on a hill which guarantees excellent views from every angle!

We had the best meal here! Even though we arrived quite late, the chef cooked us an absolute storm! The hotel is rather minimalist in style using lots of natural materials. Very comfortable and chic!
