“Great Location, but Vila not perfect”
Reviewed October 20, 2005

We stayed at the Amanwella for 3 nights in mid October. I have never been to a better beach location than this. The view is magnificant, empty beaches, palmtrees etc.
The local people in the hotel are extremly friendly and helpful.
The Villas are very nice, but spend the extra money for seaview, its worth it.
However, as it is in the middle of nowhere you need to be a bug lover. If you do not like ants or bugs in your villa, than stay away from this place. Its in the middle of nature, so you can every kind of bug. At the beach club you can also find a snake here and there. If you like nature, this place is great, but if you are a real citybuff - think twice.
Also, the villas still need some impovements. We stayed in 202 and it was easily possible to get into the villa without a key and the cleaning stiopped, where dust can easily be spotted.
Just to come back to the beginning, we loved the place, but there is room for improvement

We stayed at Amanwella for six nights in April 2005. The hotel exceeded my expectations in terms of location (right on the beach), room decor (very luxurious and spacious with a huge bathroom, private plunge pool and large terrace), service (veritable army of warm and friendly staff though still finding their legs), food (excellent quality of seafood at a reasonable price).

We were upgraded from a pool suite to a ocean pool suite.

The main pool was incredible with excellent service in that area. It was almost deserted except for us and loads of staff.

The beach club served excellent grilled seafood during the day.

Hotel sits of 800 m long beach, though not a private beach as none are in Sri Lanka

Super! Spent 4 fantastic nights at Amanwella last week. We had a fabulous time. All the villas had their own private plunge pools (6mx4m)!! The infinity pool was incredible (45m long). The beach is pristine and the ocean blue. Service and food were impeccable.
Landscaping to be completed after the monsoons. A few minor problems persisted, but any newly opened resort would have them. I'm sure they will be sorted out soon.
All in all a wonderful experience. Great location. A must for all Amanjunkies!!
