A sleek, elegant hotel, as one would expect from an Aman. This is the 4th one we have stayed in and although gorgeous I would say it was my least favourite. It is not clear on the website that although it is set on a lovely beach, bookended by rocky headlands giving a feeling of privacy, it is not in... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here. The suites are beatiful, we had great views of the ocean from our balcony. ( surprised to read that a previous reviewer was kept awake by the surf at night, we didn't hear it at all. Only the barking dogs that are present everywhere on Sri Lanka. ) the suite was serviced to... More

We travelled from the US to India and then Sri Lanka. Although, this is a bit of a drive from Colombo, it is worth it. The staff is phenomenal. The GM is fantastic. We stayed four nights and everyone was perfect. The staff memorized our names with matching room numbers from the moment we got there. We never signed for... More

We stayed at the Amanwella for the 3 nights at the end four trip and after staying in a tent for a couple of nights we needed some luxury and that's exactly what we got. All the staff are friendly and the hotel manager and food manager made time to come and introduce themselves to us during our stay. We... More

My partner and I arrived at Amanwella after having spent ten days touring the many cultural wonders of the Golden Triangle, and we had one objective for our stay: Rest and relaxation. On this account, Amanwella delivered 100%. The suites, the reception area, the restaurant and the library are all beautifully designed. The views are amazing. The beach looks and... More

Stayed in room 105 immediately above the garden and beach . Excellent service from the teams managed by Philip and Ayantha was provided throughout , especially at... More

We had a few pleasant nights in Amanwella in a perfect House at the Beach Front. The Staff welcomed us warmly though respectful, it felt great from the first moment. Our room was just perfect with a terrace above the beach and a short walking distance to the beach restaurant and the swimming area. We enjoyed the conversations with Filipe... More

5 nights after our 3 weeks touring. See also my Amangalla Review. It's on a beach so sounds of sea all night Exceedingly expensive. Owned by Russians so hope the money trickles down to locals. Suite had heavy sliding doors difficult to slide and lock. Primitive air conditioning. Only Hotel where upon request we got a Nespresso machine. Pleasant local... More

I have never felt the need to comment on trip adviser despite being an avid reader of everyone else's, however, my trip to Amanwella I really felt deserved it. We can be demanding and high maintenance when first arriving on holiday, usually tired and stressed, however on this trip we were made to feel like a pleasure by our butler... More

Beautiful hotel in a beautiful surrounding. Everything was perfect-- the room, the beach, the BBQ dinner, the warm service, the traditional dance show and the tuk tuk ride in the resort. This is definitely one Aman to your collection. We will definitely return.
