Our stay in Amanwella was truly memorable.Upon arrival, Henry, the manager, made us feel truly at home. Although the weather was not good, we enjoyed our two night stay tremendously. The beach club restaurant served excellent fresh fish, the afternoon complementary tea was very civilised, overlooking the sea, and breakfast was abundant and professional. Service at breakfast was a bit... More

There is a single hammock strung between two coconut palms on the beach. In most hotels around the world, it would have been reserved before breakfast by someone leaving a towel and a book on it. Not here. In fact the guests are so discretely spread out across the property that some of the time you wonder if you are... More

This is an amazing resort if you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle and just chill out on the beach, have great food and enjoy some of the world’s best service from the Aman trained staff. The resort is situated on a beautiful bay with a tremendous beach, the sea was quite rough when we were there... More

It was one of the best places. Very large rooms & an in built pool for each room. A 50 meter swimming pool & a fantastic private beach area. I would recomend this place for the Romantic Couples who just want to be with one another.

we visited the beach restaurant for lunch, absolutely delicious food. as a former guest, it was lovely to return and we were warmly welcomed - this hotel is set in one of the most picturesque bays in Tangalle, what a spot. Happily the food lived up to the setting! thank you

I think many hotel aspire to have a welcoming family feel but this hotel actually succeeded. The staff (all of them) knew our room number so we didn’t have to endlessly repeat the room number it as is often the case on a resort. I liked that there were not a set of times to adhere too for meals. We... More

Ok, for starters, this is an Aman hotel. So the service was outstanding. What other hotel calls your room,when they haven't seen you at the restaurant that night, to make sure they have dinner ready for you (seriously, they really did) Answer, not many. Also, if you go here, stay at Amangalla in Galle as part of your trip. Even... More

The most fabulous hotel I have stayed in for a long while. Service was above and beyond expectations and the fresh food (especially fish) was amazing. We were on our honeymoon and were so spoiled by the staff. Wonderful experience.

Another fabulous Aman. The beach here is fantastic, the staff were amazing and the views from the villa (number 1) were some of the best. The food was excellent too and everything was done to make the stay fantastic. Highly recommended.
