After a visit to Galle and Yala national park we were looking forward to relaxation, peace and tranquility to finish our short visit to Sri Lanka. We were not disappointed .Our villa set amongst palm trees on a hill overlooking the beach and ocean gave us privacy and peace and quiet. It is well appointed with all the facilities one...

Very over priced for what was offered. No fitness center, spa is set up in a closed guess room (very odd). Service during meal time was not coordinated... cold by the time you get it and drinks (tea coffee water) not replenished in a timely manner. Service was very lacking for this type of resort. Room was not as clean...

Amanwella Arrived at this hotel to be greeted by the general manager, our personal bod, and several other helpers of differing titles.

It was clearly a five star establishment, however the best word to sum it...

I have been fortunate to stay in many 5 star hotels around the world but have to say that Amanwella really cannot justify the prices vs their offer at this resort. On the plus side, the staff and service were excellent. The food was very good, however rotating the exact same menus every 3 days is not what I would...

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...
