• Amanwella,

    Sri LankA

    Near the fishing village of Tangalle, Amanwella (derived from the Sanskrit and Sinhalese words for "peace" and "beach") is hidden away in a coconut grove. With a nod to the country's best-known architect, Geoffrey Bawa, it was built using local stone, timber and terrazzo, and the 30 suites are designed in Aman's classic, pared-down style. Guests can enjoy a bathroom so big that palatial doesn't even begin to describe it and hear the waves pounding the sand from your bed. Suites from US$575 per night; amanresorts.com
