This Aman property has all the hallmarks of a picturesque beach property - beautiful white sand, palm trees, stunning sunset. However for the $US1,400 we paid night we were very disappointed. On our first day, we went down to the beach for lunch and a swim. As we were at lunch we watched couple after couple struggle to enter the...

One of the most amazing properties we have ever visited. No wonder, after all it is a product of Aman brand. No words to describe the level of service that they maintain. Amanwella is on the expensive side but it is worth every penny spent.

It is hard for me to give Amanwella a Four Star rating - for me it falls between that and a Five. This was my 3rd stay here, and it remains a truly beautiful, tranquil and calm paradise. Make no mistake about it, this is undoubtedly the best accommodation in the Tangalle area. Sure, the new Anantara Peace Haven Resort...

Amanwella is on a most beautiful beach. The location is just perfect. A sand beach with palm tree shade. The staff at the beach and beach restaurant are very attentive. The same is true for the butler and the director of the hotel. The hotel suites are great in theory. In practice the suites are small houses with sliding glas...

Paradise place , perfect to have a bath if the current is not to strong and have fresh fish or octopus for lunch in the small beach bars are there on the sand under the palms. Highly recommended to spend a half or full day if you are in Goyambokka or comming from Tangalle.

After looking at the some of the mixed reviews on trip advisor before booking our stay, I was somewhat hesitant about reserving Amanwella. I could not have been more wrong. This was by far the highlight of our two week winter holiday through Sri Lanka. You would have to be extremely blasé to be able to say anything negative about...

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Amanwella. We've stayed at 11 Amans around the world and this one would be in the top half vs the others. The setting is beautiful. The whole resort faces out onto the ocean and a largely deserted coconut grove fringed beach. I ate breakfast every day at 6am, just after it gets...

Aman resorts has a property on the southern tip of Sri Lanka that is tucked away from the main road that runs around the coast. Close to 3 hours drive from Columbo it is a pleasant surprise once you arrive. Spread out around a beautiful crescent shaped beach are the rooms, all facing the water. Rooms are large and well...

There are hotels and there is Amanwella! The architecture of this hotel is spartan and calming. Few resorts can lay claim to 37 acres of coconut grove set along a private 800m crescent beach. In their cool library u will find books to devour, a tan to top up at the infinity pool, and if you relish anonymity u should...

Stunning property located on a very pretty bay. Rooms were not up to standard of what one would expect for the price.!!!!!
