Great to be back at AVANI - B

Sri Lanka

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at the “AVANI Bentota” a hotel located directly on the sea and has a beautiful beach and two pool areas. We came for the wonderful weather and that’s exactly what we got this time. The check in process was effortless/smooth, handle very well by Dinoj the young lad at the reception, offered cold face towels and given a welcome juice and we were given a choice when choosing the welcome drink which is a fantastic touch. Upon entering the facility you could feel the warmth of the staff the friendly smile in them ! We felt immediately at ease.From the preparation of the food and the friendliness/professionalism of the hotel staff we were thrilled from day 01 in this lovely property. The Restaurant is very clean and tidy. The rooms and the whole area were perfectly clean! Many thanks to all the hotel staff who are so courteous and nice as we have never experienced! Thank you Restaurant team for looking after my family must mention Ranga the Restaurant Manager, Ranjan,Lakshith,Kasun,Anushika and all other team players who's names are not mention. This friendliness runs throughout the entire hotel and they are always with a smile very welcoming at all times!!!. All in all we would happily use this lovely hotel again the majority of the staff were polite and attentive at all times.Thank you AVANI Bentota for your warm hospitality.
