An absolute gem nestled along the pristine shores of Pasikuda, Amaya Beach Hotel exceeded every expectation. From the warm welcome to the impeccable service, every moment felt like a dream. The breathtaking ocean views from the luxurious rooms, coupled with the tranquil ambiance of the resort, provided the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The culinary delights offered at the on-site restaurants tantalized the taste buds, and the array of activities ensured there was never a dull moment. The staff's attention to detail and genuine care for guests truly made this a standout experience. I cannot recommend Amaya Beach Hotel enough – it's a true paradise retreat deserving of every one of its five stars!

Amaya is best for its scenic view of the bay. The rooms are spacious and relaxing. Although the beach right in front of the hotel has a coral reef, there are parts that are coral-free, giving access to deeper water. However, just a stone’s throw away is the most beautiful basin of water. Given that it was the Avurudhu holidays, the bay got crowded, but no one was in your face. The staff were friendly and helpful. We will always come again.

Stayed as a family of 2 adults and two teenage sons in family room 1001. The complex is clean, fresh, modern. The family room is a great size. The option to hire jet ski and paddle boards is great and the staff accompanying are polite and attentive. The a la carte food is meh. £7.50 plus for a frozen style pizza you pick up in a multi pack at Lidl for £1 sets the standard. That'd despite their being an actual pizza oven that's decorative only. Cocktails again meh. Warm when delivered. Bar staff don't take orders from the seating area. You have to go up to the bar to order. Staff are simply Lethargic, will only act reactively. Nothing pro active. Once you have their attention they will do their job but should you constantly have to chase to be served when your on holiday and its their job. Again sunbeds have option for cushions. They are packed away and not put out by staff. You physically have to get yourself or chase the staff. Once caught again they will then get to work. Breakfast buffet is limited but ok. Stayed at multiple hotels in Sri Lanka now its fine in comparison. Prices don't include tax or service. That's a dated practise and top hotels on the island have combined in published menu price to be more transparent. Overall this hotel could be great but the service levels and a la carte options we experienced really let it down.

My stay at "Amaya beach" was absolutely incredible!!! 🫶 The location right on the beach couldn't be beat. Waking up to the sound of waves crashing and stepping out onto the soft sand was pure paradise.The room was spacious incredibly clean and tastefully decorated with a stunning ocean view.🌅 The staff were friendly, accommodating, and always ready to assist with any request. The amenities, including beach chairs and pool were top notch.but the equipment at gyms needs to be upgraded. I especially loved the delicious beachfront dining options, offering fresh seafood (had the best crab curry here 🤤🦀) and refreshing unbeatable ocean view. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend AMAYA BEACH to anyone looking for the perfect beach getaway. A very good place to enjoy your vacation. I’ll be happy to come back again. 🤍🌊🌅 🐚

Chef Kiyas made this trip memorable for us - the local buffet spread was the best we had coming in to Sri Lanka - well prepared curries, pickles and other local delicacies. We managed to sneak in a cooking lesson - and watched the kitchen staff prepare pol roti, pol sambol and maldova cake. We also had the best lagoon crab curry here - made extra special as we got to choose seats in the outdoor, by the beach, under the clear moonlight. and were teased with gentle cooling sea breeze. Note - do not miss the gorgeous sunset at the beach! Rooms were spacious and clean. Tip: Swim at the public area - less rocky.

We had two relaxing days here and although the hotel was full, the widespread layout of the resort provides loads of privacy and space. I must say we encountered the best food in all of Sri Lanka at Amaya Beach Pasikudah's restaurant which is headed up by Chef Kiyas. The curries, sambols and Sri Lankan dishes were full of flavour and a distinct robustness we had not encountered in our prior meals. There was also all manner of Western food prepared for those with milder palettes. We were so taken by the food and Chef Kiyas was very kind to show us a thing or two about how to make our favourites. He is very talented and has had decades of experience in the Middle East and in Sri Lanka. Although my friend and I are usually very careful about what we eat, we couldn't resist the food here and ate way more than we should! Adding to the pleasant experience in the restaurant is how well Shakila manages the servers and the floor. The waiters were superbly attentive, dishes were never empty and there was always someone around you could summon over for help. Every staff was busy and actively engaged in keeping everything moving and running like a well oiled machine ! The restaurant and kitchen are very well staffed and well just everyone in Sri Lanka is just so pleasant to deal with! Thank you Shakila and Chef Kiyas for that memorable experience. By the way, the rooms are very spacious too.
