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. Also stayed at the Galle Aman which was really nice as well..very colonial vibe..The Galle fort centre is a definite stopping/shopping spot..probably the best tourist set up. Sri Lanka feels more...

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...

We ended up staying here after our original hotel said they were fully booked, and we are so glad we did. The location is gorgeous, nestled in a coconut grove, with a clean sweeping beach. The pool is a fantastic 48 metres and the rooms are large and luxurious - although maybe the A/C could be improved. The breakfast was...

This is more or less twice the price of any surrounding hotels, but then it is probably 3 times better. Fantastic staff and food, wonderful rooms, altogether very relaxing. The beach is rougher than some but fine to swim in in most parts. The service was outstanding,

Am a big fan of Aman but they haven't quite got this one right. Yet. Amazing location, amazing pool, beach, views, property. Staff are fabulous. But the food needs work. Also, our room was somewhat problematic. Glaring (minor) construction flaws (gaps between floor and outside doors) let bugs in and a/c out! Coolest room was the library (rarely used), but...
