A Quick but Relaxing Break

Panadura, Sri Lanka

It was a relaxing weekend at Avani Kaluthara with the family. The hotel & room were calm & comfortable, the staff was freindly & helpful. Due to on going renovation the restaurant & swimming pool had been closed and had to walk to Anantara a few steps away. Staying at a 4 star while enjoying 5 star facilities next door was a new experience but we still prefer if those of Avani's would have been let to use. It was a wrong decision to proceed with repairs at a high tourist season. Room was spacious & comfy, kids loved the place. All over the hotel was calm & quite. The bar was small but a good place to enjoy a drink & meet some new friends, reasonably priced with friendly staff.
