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.

This Is Some Vacation

Colombo, Sri Lanka

Without doubt this is one of the favourite hotels we stayed. It's the weekend we chose to go to Avani Kalutara and so many like us have chosen Avani to spend their weekend at. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff and Mr. Jayantha. We were offered a lovely room. The staff was extremely friendly and they were so quick to provide us with hospitality when we request for something and specially Mr. Jayantha was very supportive(appreciate this!). Our room had everything we needed and it was very easy for us and we didn't have to worry. They have so many activities to do in leisure times. The scenery around the hotel was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The atmosphere is so special that it really feltvlike home to us. All the credit goes to Mr.Jayantha and the staff; a true sample of excellent hospitality.
