This was the first visit to the hotel. Lovely atmosphere & very friendly people made our stay a very pleasant one.

Special thank goes to Isuru who is attached to the next The Breeze Restaurant. He made food selection much easier & served us in a very friendly manner.

Any one looking for a nice hotel with a lovely beach & relaxing environment, this is one of the best hotel to visit.

We went for our anniversary to avani, the staffs were very friendly and helpful; the rooms were perfect, the atmosphere. ... food was amazing. Normally one of the issue we find in hotels is that too many insects which in avani we could not find any, they are well maintained. Overall. .. just perfect!!

A fun and enjoyable place to unpack your bags with the Indian Ocean in your back yard. The Avani Resort is an older property that has been re-furnished quite well. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The staf is very friendly, nice, and accommodating and always ready to help. From the moment we checked in all the staff we came in contact with remembered our names and room number every minute following. Also, there were staff we did not come in direct contact with the later in the day or even the next day and somehow someway they already knew our names and room numbers...(very impressive)....We had couple's massage in the spa and they were spectacular. There are 4 restaurants and all the food is amazing....the seafood is magnificent. Contrary to some reviews that may mention bugs, remember this is on the beach and basically you're in a rainforrest, so some bugs are the normal thing to see here and there, but it's nothing major. It's not roaches and rats. All I can say to that is, we travel a lot to beach resorts in tropical areas of the world and I've learned to pack a small can of bug spray and mosquito spray. Now, I will say, there us a train that runs pretty early in the morning, so if you are a light sleeper then it will wake you, but it is not for a long period of time. The Internet is very annoying,nowhere it constantly looses its signal and we found ourselves logging on or trying to log on many times throughout each day. But I will say that is all the disadvantage to our stay here. Again the beach, staff, food, spa, room was very much on point.

Also, our drive from the Colombo airport was about 2 hours long. Although it did not seem like it, we had a wonderful driver service Gayan Kumara. His driver was a very informative driver and a safe driver as well. I recommend him and contact info is 077-9739684 or 078 7504188 or email gayanindika34@yahoo.com. Also, while on the beach we met the nicest lil Tuk-Tuk guy named Chani. His contact info is Chani Tours @ +9477 1746 251 or +9477 694 4517 or email chanichanaka@yahoo.com...He was very helpful in talking with us and telling us about the local people, the places to go, things to do etc. we used his Tuk-Tuk service the entire stay at Avani. He is a very safe driver and has a great attitude and personality. I recommend his Tuk-Tuk service and we will definitely stay at the Avani again and we will definitely contact Gayan and Chani. We are thinking of returning for the Christmas holidays 2015.

Excellent location, great beach, not a very dolled up show property but a nice cozy home away home, Restaurant and Front office staff is really nice and welcoming.
The pool and the long lawn is very homely. We have been going back many times and celebrated birthdays too. Good as our second home, My family specially kids loves AVANI.

Room Tip: If you wish a beautiful uninterrupted beach view then Choose a first or second floor room.

Done our booking through booking.com and found the place very much appreciable. we had selected a superior room which found to be small hence we opted for a room change and went to a deluxe room. The room change was immediate and got it for a good price too. Special thanks to their reception staff name Ms.OMEGA. She was very helpful. Their spa is also too good. A huge swimming pool, actually 2 of them.

Really, had a great time out there...

Only thing i found as drawback was the omelette station during the breakfast. The service out there is too slow and the guy was not able to prepare what was asked for...
