We didn't stay here but ate dinner in the hotel's main restaurant, & were surprised to find we were the only ones there! The location is stunning; on the edge of the bay, surrounded by coconut groves with the relentless soundtrack of crashing waves. The restaurant is sleek & super-modern, in keeping with the hotel, although it lacks a little... More

We arrived by default when our other hotel was closed. What a great surprise. The staff were very welcoming, took a personal interest in making sure we had a good stay and the location on the pounding surf was beyond compare. We had dinner on the beach, breakfast overlooking the lagoon and enjoyed great views from our room. Even departing... More

I have stayed at several Amans and this is truly one of the better ones (hopefully the new Aman ownership don't mess this up...). You will not be disappointed here. Of all the Amans I have stayed at, this is the one I want to return to the most. I highly recommend this location as it seems like it is... More

We have visited several Amanhotels in the past years, including Amanjiwo, Amangiri, Amanfayun etc.plus many other 5 stars resorts in Asia, Africa, USA incl. Hawaii. However Amanwella is unique. It doesn't offer you the variety of cultural sites in close distance, but in our opinion the best place to completely relax from an exciting but exhausting trip to the cultural... More

Went there for a family vacation. But it seems to be a popular destination for company outings also. So we had guests yelling being drunk at breakfast. And similar experiences at lunch and dinner. We had a bad experience with the hotel dog that not only scratched my wife but also broke our kites. The manager tried to make up... More

Amanwella was our first experience at an Aman resort and it lived up to the expectations, associated with the resort name. It is stunningly located with a beach that looks like it is manufactured it is so good! The photos do not lie. The highlight was also the stunning pool located in the main facilities area. It is enormous -... More

One of my absolute favourite resorts, incredible design, comfort and vibe in the beautifully modern and classic Aman style. Stunning open plan rooms with a private pool for each one and amazing views over the sea. The food and restaurant experience was world class and I completely loved my stay and plan to go back!

We couldn't recommend Amanwella more highly. Although we were there in low season, the service was immaculate. We had an incredibly warm welcome from Anand and his team and were spoiled from start to finish. The property is exceptionally beautiful and set in incredible surroundings. It is blissfully relaxing and the staff couldn't have done more to make us feel... More

Having been to the Amanwella 7 months ago back in September last year I knew exactly the experience I would be getting. A beautiful beach resort with very friendly staff, a perfect pool and stunning views. The food was more of an afterthought and the only thing that slightly let the hotel down last time. However with a new chef... More
