If you plan to go on vacation to Amanwella Hotel in Tangalle, it means that you have the budget to afford it and you deserve perfection.
We vited the place beginning of January 2 times just to have a drink at the bar, and one time for dinner. So we do not judge the hotel.
What we got was, one of the most amazing views, a fantastic dramatic architecture inspired by the genius of Bawa in its special tropical modernist style.
Very nice waiters, but the service was much too long, we had to ask the bill for about half an hour, they could not provide a mosquito repellent (we where literally attacked, mosquitos are democratic and don't care about the place).
The list of wine was poor (the italian wine was of a rather low quality, we are italian and we know), the menu was lacking in fish, and what we got was really so so.
We had much better food on the simple shacks on the beach, with all sort of fishes, including lobsters.
You may run into a pop star or an hollywood actress, if you care about it. We don't.
My advice if you are in the area is to go there to have a drink for sunset. Enjoy the view, and go elsewhere for dinner.
Not very expensive.
