Kill the jetlag and move to the Galle Fort. Even though the property we’ve selected here doesn’t have a direct beach access, the view here is impeccable. Coupled with colonial architecture and contemporary luxury, 2 nights here exploring the contrasting cultures of the south coast is all packed together. All this followed by true relaxation at the Amanwella in Tangalle Beach. Slow paced beach resort combining true Aman culture with Sri Lankan traditions.
