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... More

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... More

Allow me to begin this review by saying we are big fans of Aman resorts. We love their unique and often remote locations, creative designs, fantastic staff, big, comfortable rooms and excellent food. Amanwella did not disappoint in any of these categories. While clearly it is a bit of a challenge to get here, when the new airport which is... More

I don't understand how some other reviewers complain about Amanwella not being up to the standard of other Aman properties. This was, no question, a supreme example of why Aman stands head and shoulders apart from the rest of the pack. WOW, WOW, WOW! I could find no fault here, everything was perfect. Stunning location and superb suites. Understated elegance... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were truly spoilt. The team were so helpful and friendly and made a real effort... More

Aman just do it really well, and this is no exception. Of course it's expensive, but you get a fantastic location, wonderful bar, library and dining areas, wall-to-wall service, stunning rooms, and a desire from all the staff to please. Although they could do with a dedicated spa, the massage is top notch; there should be a gym, but they... More

At the prices charged here we think one has every right to be very demanding, if expectations can be as high as cost we are not going to be tolerant with this review, we will only quickly mention the great design of buildings and the superb beach. Upon arrival we waited1,15 H for our welcome drink, a coconut juice served... More
