Wella-Entrance

Amanwella

This fabulous beach hotel, Amanwella , the best beach property in the island, is accessed via a gravel road that opens onto a pebbled courtyard and entrance pavilion. An ascending colonnade leads to the public areas. The reception is on the left while to the right are two grassed courtyards, separated by the Library and a reflecting pool. Beyond one courtyard is the Lounge and Bar and adjacent to the other is the Restaurant. Steps lead to the unique, rectangular 45-metre infinity swimming pool. Overlooking the pool are two large sun terraces with sun loungers. Located in the coconut grove meters from the sea, is the Beach Club, an open pavilion with a wooden deck ideal for lounging and light, informal dining. Suites, linked by pathways, are interspersed along the hillside to the west of the public areas. Most are within comfortable walking distance and a small resort vehicle is available for transport to the more elevated levels. There are sweeping views of the ocean and the beach, flanked by two rocky headlands.
Accommodation: All 30 suites are identical in layout and design and fall into two categories based on their location and views. The pool and pool ocean suites are contemporary in design yet blending local material and styles like the distinctive terracotta roof tiles and hand- hewn stone walls. The suites open on both sides letting in cooling sea breezes.

Pool Suites:

Situated mostly on the hillside, the pool suites enjoy varying views of the coconut grove and ocean. Floor-to-ceiling glass and latticed panels form two sides of the dwelling – one opening onto a private walled-in entry courtyard and pool. The terrace side affords open views. The private pool measures six by four meters and the courtyard features a banquette for lounging and dining. Timber sliding doors and panels reveal the interior spaces. There is a combined sleeping and living room with a king-size bed, writing desk, armchair with foot-stool and a credenza featuring a personal bar with refreshments. Sliding screens divide this area from the open-plan bathroom featuring a freestanding bathtub, twin vanities, dressing area, shower and toilet. Access to the spacious terrace is again via sliding doors from the living areas and the bathroom. The terrace includes a dining table with two chairs and a double sun lounge. Terrazzo floors are finished in muted, sandy tones that reflect the beach setting. Three sets of suites share an outdoor terrace connecting door. These are ideal for families or couples traveling together.

Ocean Pool Suites:

Ocean pool suites are situated on the lower levels of the hill and enjoy uninterrupted views of the coconut grove and beach. They are identical in design and furnishing to the pool suites
