A contemporary resort in tropical paradise

Set among coconut groves on the golden sand of Kalutara, this unique resort enjoys a spectacular setting; where the Kalu Ganga River meets the Indian Ocean. It is contemporary in style, mixing neutral tones and bold colours, and the atmosphere has a laidback feel; with a sparkling pool and access straight to a beach. Taste exciting cuisine in a variety of international and locally-inspired dishes, and keep active with activities on land and on the water.

Super staff, great food, not so sure about the hotel

Wincanton, United Kingdom

The AVANI has a super location, the pool is simple but nice and the beach front is great. However this is not a luxury hotel. The deluxe rooms are not deluxe and both our’s and our children’s rooms smelt very damp. We moved to two suites which were infinitely nicer. The food was super but what we thought was really great were the staff. At the weekends the hotel seems to open its doors to contingents of young men who are very noisy and bring boxes full of vodka. We complained to the staff about the noise and they dealt with it professionally and calmly. We really felt for the staff as With some investment this hotel could be really great. After two days we decided to move to the anantara. For us it was the right decision. The AVANI is classed as luxury but it really isn’t. However it is Definitely worth eating there. Great food at reasonable prices
