We stayed for almost 10 days at the Avani Bentota in April 14, and really loved it. Wonderful beach with the most amazing sunsets, and you're also far from Beach Boys and people trying to sell pareos etc. in case you prefer not to be bothered. Nice design of the building and rooms, very clean and good service. All staff... More

Pleasantly enjoyed the stay at Avani Bentota! Having stayed at the other two next door, found the service to be more consistent and special mention to Ajith at the bar who made cocktails even remembered and informed others who to do them before his shift ended. Brilliant service. Definitely resort of choice now in the South.

We reached Colombo and all we knew that our next destination is Bentota. We had not booked any hotels. Thanks to tripadvisor again, we booked Avani for one night and thought we will check out the next day to a better hotel. But we were really mesmerized by the property and hospitality as we reached there. The rooms, the location,... More

After 4 weeks of sight seeing, it was pure pleasure to stay at Avani resort. For four days we never left, even to go to the town. We ate at the bar and at the A-la-carte restaurant, swam at the pool, walked along the beach and just enjoyed being pampered.

This hotel is right on the money when it comes to location, food and hospitality. We really enjoyed the option of the 2 pools - and of course the proximity of the excellent beach. It had a delectable breakfast menu that we really enjoyed. If you're looking for some time out to just relax and recharge you batteries, this is... More

It was a lovely place with very nice rooms. But the sevice was really very slow (After ordering food at the pooside it took them more than 50 Minutes to bring a burger and fries) and stared at the guests, especially as a woman I didn't feel very comfortable to be on the poolside. But it was still a very... More
