Another fabulous Aman. The beach here is fantastic, the staff were amazing and the views from the villa (number 1) were some of the best. The food was excellent too and everything was done to make the stay fantastic. Highly recommended.

Upon arriving at the beautiful Amanwella we were greeted by Nero, the hotels lovely resident black lab and his owner- the GM Henry and we were immediately made to feel at home. Our room was stunning with a fantastic view of the ocean. The pool was probably the best I've ever seen and swam in, beautiful and the perfect temperature-...

We had an amazing time in this beautiful resort. The location is breathtaking and service was thoughtful and friendly. A special thank to "Jivan" (apologies for the misspelling) our butler. There is nothing to worry about, all your wishes come true in this little paradise. I hope we will have the opportunity to come again.

The hotel is not great. However the land it is on is unsurpassable! The hotel is a 3 1/2 hour drive south of Colombo International airport and the hotel will transfer you for 235.00 USD. My husband and I booked through AMEX fine hotels program. There are about 20 rooms, 8 were filled when we got there but we were...

A long over due review, stayed here in 2013. Couldn't have been more perfect, from the private plunge pool, to the food, to the architecture, to the beautiful beach. 5 Star in every way, shape and form! Definitely one of Sri Lanka's best resorts by the beach, hands down. The perfect high-end, luxurious getaway. Can't wait to go back :)

Sublime. The sound of the waves and nothing else if you choose it. The architecture was fantastic, beautiful. The private plunge pools means you don't have to leave your room if you don't want to. We only left to have a private dinner on the beach and for beach in the morning and one evening to watch the sunset over...

Stunning is an under statement!..the architecture, the food, the service, the view the culture..probably one of the best in the world..5 star! The view over the bay is magical.

Amanwella is our perfect resort....villas are spaced throughout the property so you truly feel secluded and can enjoy your own private holiday. Walk to the main resort building with the pools, bar and restaurant and you can enjoy a more resort type feel. The best of both worlds. The beach area with its own fabulous outdoor restaurant is lovely...unpretentious yet...

We just returned from two glorious weeks in Sri Lanka, one of which was spent at Amanwella, the perfect combo of a beautiful property and fantastic people. The rooms are wonderful - spacious, well designed, with views of the pristine beach. The service was fantastic. Sasilu took care of us during our entire stay and there was no request too...
