We booked Amanvana based on reviews on this site, and stayed there for 2 nights in Dec 2012. The place surpassed our expectations and my kids still get a wistful look in their eyes when we talk about Amanvana. The ambience, the cleanliness of room and bathroom, the food, the pool, the staff - all deserve a 10/10. I really do not get why people here are complaining about the food....but during Christmas of 2012 when we stayed there, food was superb with wide variety. My 11 yr old son ate so much (and he's a picky eater) that I was worried he would get sick.
The eight-island trek was a wonderful adventurous experienence with just the amount of "danger" to get your heart racing. Hats off to Tarzan (do not remember his real name but we nicknamed him Tarzan since he would suddenly leap down from trees with a Tarzan yell) who made us jump up and laugh!
The pool is decently sized and we swam both days in the afternoon, braving the cold water.
Thee only little issue was with the hot water. Both my kids wanted to take a bubble bath in the lovely bathroom but when we tried filling the tub with hot water, it ran cold before the tub was 1/3 full...so that was a bit of a disappointment. We were told to wait for 10 mins and then hot water would appear, but that did not happen. No biggie, but just wanted to point this out.
Spa was great. This was my first venture into a spa so I may not be the best judge but felt relaxed and sleepy after the massage.
Overall, fantastic place to visit with family.
