We stayed for four nights after a stay at Amangalle and enjoyed both properties. Lots of folks sing the praises of both resorts, so I thought I would approach it a bit differently and compare the four Aman BEACH resorts we have been to in recent years: AmanNoi, Amanpulo, Amanryu and Amanwelle. The beach itself: Hard to imagine a prettier... More

Our last evening here before the trudge back to London. If this place hadn't yet been certified as paradise it should certainly be shortlisted. The Aman group of hotels have the (rightful) reputation for luxury and this one does not disappoint. For anyone planning a honeymoons?...book it - you will not be disappointed. Let's be clear though - there is... More

My second stay here. After last time I longed to come back, and Amanwella remains a gorgeous, relaxed and sensational property. This has to be one of the most beautiful beachside locations on the planet. From the moment I arrived all the hallmarks of an Aman stay were present. I was greeted by Henry, the excellent GM, and the warm... More

This is a perfectly beautiful hotel located on a nice beach. The public areas are dramatic and over look a cove with crashing surf. My suite was lovely and well furnished with a comfy bedroom and a capacious bathroom with separate tub, shower room and double lavs, and lots of storage space. The adjacent private plunge pool was sizable but... More

We stayed here at the end of our Sri Lanka trip, and wanted a place to kick back. There is not much to do in the area at all, a temple, a bird watching lagoon, maybe other beaches. Unfortunately there is also no place at the hotel for us active types, like a gym, or real places for a vigorous... More

Hugely expensive to stay, and yes, lacking character, but wow what a view, and what a lovely dining experience. The hotel is very modern, and you have your own little lake in the toilets - designed rather than accidental.

We arrived at Amanwella having just been to Yala ( Leopard Trails ) which we found very touristy and quite frankly our tented accommodation was by no means perfect On getting out of the car at Amanwella we were greeted not just by the staff but Henry the Manager who had taken the trouble to meet us as well -...

We spent four nights there as part of the beach and fort package. Amanwella was built on one of the most beautiful stretch of beach in south Sri Lanka. The beach is public but there are not many people and Amanwella has a private lounging area. The waves are very strong so you could not really walk in the water.... More
