We went for our 5th wedding anniversary to Amanwella & Amangalla and must say it was wonderful.
Even though the drive was around five hours from Colombo, it was less painful as they provided cold towels / beverages and pillows to make the ride comfortable. I was also told that improved infrastructure in the country will result in a much shorter travel time.
Upon arriving to the resort, we were welcomed by the friendly staff who even knew our names (very personalised which is great). The Ocean suite was gorgeous. with plenty of space and very peaceful. Being vegetarians, the head chef would come to us before every meal to ensure we had a memorable time. In the two nights at the resort, we ate once at the beach and the other night at the main restaurant.
I was also happy to indulge in various experiences which I felt were very fairly priced because from my experience, all high-end resorts usually rip you off on all the extras which was not the case here.
It really was a wonderful trip where you didn't feel you were staying at an ordinary hotel as you didn't have to sign for every little thing but rather just check and sign your bill at the end.
