Beautiful hotel & location

London, United Kingdom

Just finished a 5 night stay at the Amari and I’m struggling to find fault in it if I’m honest. The rooms are clean and comfortable, food and drink good and reasonable priced and the location is superb. There is also a rooftop bar which I enjoyed spending time in 😂. Probably the main highlight were the staff, so polite, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Actually thinking about I used their car service for trips quite a bit. Driver was excellent but I could definitely have got the trips a lot cheaper elsewhere, I chose to pay extra for convenience. Overall, without trying to sound like an advert for the hotel, I would highly recommend 👍

Just as good on the second visit

London, United Kingdom

I recently made my second visit to the Amari hotel - having made it my last stop on a tour of Sri Lanka in 2019. I was so impressed with the service and hospitality, I decided to go back for 10 nights. My return trip did not disappoint! The entire staff team are friendly, welcoming and efficient, and between them provide fantastic customer service. Nothing is too much trouble - and if your enquiry can't be answered or dealt with there and then, they are quick to get back to you. Sunil, in the housekeeping team, was just as big a star this time around as he was on my last trip - and continued to impress with his extensive repertoire of creatures made from towels (monkeys, swans, turtles, crabs, pigs to name just some!).Always smiling and chatty - he's a great ambassador for your hotel. Whoever delivers your training should be congratulated, as the whole teams focus is on looking after the customer. The rooms are lovely, and all with ocean views. All of the facilities - from the pool to the restaurant and roof top bar - are immaculately presented. Room service is efficient with a wide range of dishes for anytime of the day or evening. The hotel is located within easy reach of nearby Galle or Hikkaduwa. Make sure you include the Amari on your itinerary.
