We just returned from two glorious weeks in Sri Lanka, one of which was spent at Amanwella, the perfect combo of a beautiful property and fantastic people. The rooms are wonderful - spacious, well designed, with views of the pristine beach. The service was fantastic. Sasilu took care of us during our entire stay and there was no request too...

We ended up staying here after our original hotel said they were fully booked, and we are so glad we did. The location is gorgeous, nestled in a coconut grove, with a clean sweeping beach. The pool is a fantastic 48 metres and the rooms are large and luxurious - although maybe the A/C could be improved. The breakfast was...

This is more or less twice the price of any surrounding hotels, but then it is probably 3 times better. Fantastic staff and food, wonderful rooms, altogether very relaxing. The beach is rougher than some but fine to swim in in most parts. The service was outstanding,

Am a big fan of Aman but they haven't quite got this one right. Yet. Amazing location, amazing pool, beach, views, property. Staff are fabulous. But the food needs work. Also, our room was somewhat problematic. Glaring (minor) construction flaws (gaps between floor and outside doors) let bugs in and a/c out! Coolest room was the library (rarely used), but...

Allow me to begin this review by saying we are big fans of Aman resorts. We love their unique and often remote locations, creative designs, fantastic staff, big, comfortable rooms and excellent food. Amanwella did not disappoint in any of these categories. While clearly it is a bit of a challenge to get here, when the new airport which is...

I don't understand how some other reviewers complain about Amanwella not being up to the standard of other Aman properties. This was, no question, a supreme example of why Aman stands head and shoulders apart from the rest of the pack. WOW, WOW, WOW! I could find no fault here, everything was perfect. Stunning location and superb suites. Understated elegance...

We stayed here for a week at the end of our honeymoon. After visiting so many places we really thought that nothing could top our previous experiences and then we arrived at the aman...

Aman just do it really well, and this is no exception. Of course it's expensive, but you get a fantastic location, wonderful bar, library and dining areas, wall-to-wall service, stunning rooms, and a desire from all the staff to please. Although they could do with a dedicated spa, the massage is top notch; there should be a gym, but they...
