The Maldives islands are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.
Sri Lanka is only half the size of England but packs a real punch
With a good guide you may spot a leopard or black-coated sloth bear and we can arrange a wildlife safari to help you discover some of the hundreds of different bird and butterfly species that flourish here. Divers and surfers will be in paradise, together with cricket and golf lovers. With average daytime temperatures of 27 degrees all year round, you can be assured plenty of sunshine.
Amanwella is perfectly located on the south coast of Sri Lanka within a mature coconut grove overlooking a crescent-shaped beach. There are just 30 suites positioned either on the beach or higher up on the hillside, all with wonderful views. As you’d expect from an Aman resort, wellness and nature go hand in hand: yoga is available in the coconut grove, relaxing spa treatments can be taken in the spa or your suite and a 150ft swimming pool offers glorious views as you swim overlooking the bay. The consistently excellent Aman service will ensure that your every need is catered for.
Ocean & Hillside Suites
The Ocean and Hillside Suites both have fantastic views of the stunning coastline and are synonymous with the Aman style, so you can expect contemporary design and use of local materials such as terracotta and hand-hewn stone in muted colours to reflect the outside environment. Floor to ceiling glass doors bathe the suites in light and allow you to indulge in the panoramic views. As you would expect, the bed is king-sized, there are twin vanity units and a free-standing bath in the bathroom, as well as a writing desk and credenza, which houses a personal bar with well-stocked refreshments
