Magnficent views of the Ocean!
Beautiful Hotel! We had a one bedroom suite and it was magnificent. We had a huge wraparound patio with panoramic views of the ocean all around, that is almost felt like we were in the middle of the Ocean. The rooms were decorated beautifully with Ocean colors.Our room boy Lasith was the best. His careful attention to detail made our stay special. Food was good and service all around was superb!

Don’t let Amari ruin your holiday, stay elsewhere
For the price of a 5-star hotel: Beach is not swimmable, barely walkable with the shape corse sand. The fake palm tree in the water makes a real eyesore. Room was small and dark with cheap, stained furniture and patchy painted-over walls & ceiling. Buffets looked and tasted like hospital food, and ala carte items made me miss McDonalds like never before. Worst part was front desk service - Miss Desha Lak was a real piece of work - no eye contact, slammed check in form on counter with her palm, threw a pen on top, and so much despise in her tone that made us feel really unwelcome. She also refused to help with currency exchange - “check the rates yourself over there” were her exact words. Our stay at this godforsaken hotel really ruined our wonderful time in Sri Lanka. Please don’t make the same mistake we did.
