Amanwella, Sri Lanka
Undiluted Indian Ocean views from Sri Lanka’s sun-baked south coast.
The distinct contemporary design of Amanwella is inspired by Geoffrey Bawa’s neat angles of the last century, a Sri Lankan architecture who is the principal force behind the Tropical Modernism. The Tropical Modernist movement visible across southeast Asia resonates worldwide thanks to the Sri Lankan architect’s trademark blend of Corbusian minimalism and indigenous materials. All Suites open on two sides to private plunge pools and large terraces facing out to sea. Overlooking a deserted crescent of ivory sands, the 150-foot-long swimming pool is one of the world’s most talked-about, making this paradise one of our favorite Aman Properties.

The ancient city of Marrakesh radiates from its 12th-century Medina, a red-walled former fortress crisscrossed by narrow lanes.

Aman Sveti Stefan, Montenegro
A ruggedly beautiful Adriatic coastline, interlaced with hidden coves and beaches and studded with ancient towns. Away from the sea, a wild mountain landscape of forested valleys, vineyards and vast lakes with more adventures and experiences to offer. From Aman Sveti Stefan, travelers have access to Unesco-preserved medieval heritage, authentic cultural and culinary experiences, and all the breath-snatching adventure of one of Europe’s most naturally spectacular settings. Aman Sveti Stefan is a story in two parts. One is a beautifully preserved 15th-century fishing village on a fortified islet, the other, on the mainland, is the shore-side former summer home of the Queen Maria of Yugoslavia – a rustic retreat and a royal residence connected by an isthmus. Together, these historic properties occupy an 80-acre patch of Montenegro’s wildly beautiful coast, including three idyllic swimming pools and a trio of pink-sand beaches that are among the most beautiful on the Adriatic.
