My votes goes to an all-ambient line-up this year:

Steve Roach – Immersion Five - Circadian Rhythms
Ishq – Lotus
Ishq – Skyspaces
Sinepearl – The Dance Of Affinity (Obscure thing on Ishq's/the Virtual label)
Netherworld – Over The Summit

A lot of great music so far, but this has been for me the best of 2011 in Ambient:

El Hadra - Ornaments
Phillip Wilkerson – Complex Silence 15 (on the Treetrunk netlabel) -> by the way a nice netlabel, just like Earth Mantra with tons of great free music, even too much good music.
Stephan Mathieu - A Static Place

Carbon Based Lifeforms-Twentythree (fabulous ambient space album, pure drift no beats unlike their previous work)

Sinepearl-The Dance of Affinity.  On Ishq's Virtual label.  Yes, I second that vote.  This sounds like a long-lost classic from 1994; gorgeous FSOL-like dreamscapes. 

Foxx/Budd/Garcia-Nighthawks.  Really melancholy and beautiful.  Released as 3-CD package with re-releases of Translucence and Drift Music.
