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.!!!!! Nice dining opportunity but food was less than average in fact the worst Sri Lanka curry we had in Sri Lanka. Breakfast was good. Around the property attention to detail was lacking evidenced by rubbish on beach and...

This resort is spectacular. Firstly I have to mention the staff, who are fantastic. Thanks to all of them. The setting and scenery are magical. It's out of central casting for what it should be, the palm fringed beach is amazing, the pool is lovely. Food is great. And the staff are always going the extra mile to make your...

Very disappointed!The hotel is in renovations,we got a room from where we heard the workers inside and outside. We did not get the best view either. We wanted to book a massage,the spa is under renovation,so the therapist came to our room but due to the construction noise it was impossible to relax. We booked for three nights but we...

Amanwella is not just another beach resort, as tucked away in the beautiful picturesque village of Tangalle (off the beaten track), this property is a gem ! The moment you arrive, you feel a tranquility set in as you're warmly welcomed & whisked away effortlessly for a welcome drink after a nice cold towel has been handed to you. Amanwella...

We decide to visit Sri Lanka about a year ago, since I am an Amanjunkie so I will definitely go with 2 Aman resorts in Sri Lanka, one is Amanwella and the other one is located in Fort Galle, Amangalla. After arrival Amanwella on a beautiful sunny day, I have been told that we have been upgraded to Ocean View...

This was our first stay with Aman group and has reset the bar for me with regards to hospitality and service. The peace and tranquility was unexpected, the understated luxury and attention to detail ensured that our stay was very individual and gave us the relaxing escape that was needed! The Villas are well appointed and the early morning walks...

What a fantastic place, everything is wonderful here. Pure serenity and pampered to bits. Nothing at all bad to say. Beware of the sea very strong waves and odd snake. Makes a healthy change not to have noisy and unruly kids around. Peace and solitude is the order of the day with very nice gifts from the management from time...

The spacious villa style rooms overlook the ocean and feature private pools, expansive terrace and an alcove garden perfect for breakfasting. Two restaurants and a concierge ready to recommend restaurants, attractions and excursions make this an ideal vacation paradise in Sri Lanka.

The hotels of the Aman Group are, to me, the finest there are... The locations are always fantastic, the architecture and interior design is flawless, the staff couldn't be more helpful, kind and professional, and welcome you as they would at home with their own guests. Amanwella is no exception and the surroundings are stunning. Yes, as I read in...
