This is our 8th trip to Sri Lanka and every year we try a new hotel and location to have a new experience. This year it was the Avani. We had a pleasant stay in the hotel, the staff looked after us and we and would go back.

Stayed: February 2017

My husband and I were at this hotel last week. Its paradise. The staff, Thilini who welcomed us and looked after us for the 2 days, is a real Gift, as her name in Singalise means. Lakshi, another staff, also very hospitable. They all serve with a smile. The Executive Chef, Sanjeev, came out of his way to ask about the food and how I would like my food, being a vegan but I did not need to ask for anything as there was more choice that I could eat.
The beach is beautiful with golden sand and its so secluded. Hardly anybody there, its like your private beach.
The ways its set up, its perfect, the swimming pool was right opposite our room and the gym 2 minutes so did not need to traipse around.

Room Tip: Anywhere in the hotel is the same- fantastic. Mobility issues and families with children ask for ground floor facing the swimming pool.

Honestly, of all the places I’ve been to, by far the best Saturday Buffet I’ve had in a long Time. Well trained and Very Friendly Staff, always sporting a Big Smile and helpful. The rooms and the Hotel itself has a vibrant atmosphere/ well equipped and neat!
**My favourite, ‘The Tea Room’, Perfect for an Evening chill out.

Avani is totally worth its money. The service is outstanding, housekeeping is prompt, rooms are spacious with breathtaking view, and food is commendable. We stayed there for 5 nights and were very well looked after. Full marks.
