Situated in a mature coconut grove above a tropical beach on the southern tip of the country's Indian Ocean coastline, this is coastal luxury at its most chic.
Situated mostly on the hillside, the Suites have views of the coconut grove and ocean. Floor-to-ceiling glass and latticed panels open onto a private courtyard and plunge pool, with the terrace side opposite affording open views. The contemporary design of the resort is also sympathetic to the surroundings; distinctive terracotta roof tiles, hand-hewn stone walls, water features, terrazzo floors and sliding terrace doors. The central swimming pool has uninterrupted views of the palms, beach and sea beyond and the superb spa uses locally sourced products. Restaurant cuisine is Asian and Mediterranean with an emphasis on local seafood. The Pool Terrace is ideal for alfresco dining, or The Beach Club provides an alternative venue for lunch and private dinners. The menu includes simple Asian salads, Mediterranean classics, and seafood cooked over a coconut charcoal barbeque.
Nature rules in this part of the world and Amanwella's setting makes it possible to see giant turtles on neighbouring beaches, or elephant herds in nearby national parks.
