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

My third visit to Amanwella and the place still gives me a high. Kerry Hill has masterfully designed the property looking at every aspect of aesthetics that really makes this the gold standard of Sri Lanka's hotels. The service is still impeccable. Nothing is too much for the staff even though the distances from the rooms must make service a... More

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
