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... More

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... More

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

We stayed here for a week at the end of our honeymoon. After visiting so many places we really thought that nothing could top our previous experiences and then we arrived at the aman... 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
