Amanwella is the opitime of luxury. A private retreat, which is very well secured. Their private beach is gorgeous and the grounds and facilities are stunning. Staff are superbly friendly and the GM ensures everyone's stay is top notch. The restaurant and bar have beautiful views. The food is good, but could be better considering the brand.

We staye 3 nights after our tour of northern Sri Lanka. Everything here is a delight but the standout is the staff. They could not have been more wonderful. The people we met in SL seem to have a natural friendly smile, and here was no exception. The beach men were complete stand outs, both Sam and Mahesh. We've never...

LOCATION Its about a 3.5 hour drive from the Colombo airport. Our driver stopped along the way to show us a giant Buddha as well as a fish market. Both stops were really fun! ROOMS The rooms are really nicely done with typical sri Lankan style. The pools are incredibly cold, so it’s a bit hard to swim in them!...

This place is fantastic. I have stayed at 6 other Aman resorts and this hotel is the best (tied with Amankila). Yes it is very expensive, yes some very minor aspects of it could do with a touch up (which they are doing in May-July of 2017) but the pool is unbeatable anywhere, the beach which was very calm was...

The location and layout of the resort is lovely. The resort shows severe signs of wear after ten years with apparently little renovation since then. Also the grounds are not well maintained at all. It cannot compete with the usual Aman standard...Apparently the problem has been identified and will be addressed. Food and service very good, beach nice but public......

After a visit to Galle and Yala national park we were looking forward to relaxation, peace and tranquility to finish our short visit to Sri Lanka. We were not disappointed .Our villa set amongst palm trees on a hill overlooking the beach and ocean gave us privacy and peace and quiet. It is well appointed with all the facilities one...

Very over priced for what was offered. No fitness center, spa is set up in a closed guess room (very odd). Service during meal time was not coordinated... cold by the time you get it and drinks (tea coffee water) not replenished in a timely manner. Service was very lacking for this type of resort. Room was not as clean...
