We were incredibly well looked after by the staff at the Avani. Our stay was made special by the stunning location of the hotel and a spotless room with great facilities (minibar, Wi-Fi, lovely en-suite shower room, safe) & a nice comfy bed. The food was really great - local and international available - I can't speak for the international,... More

Stayed here with hubby for 11 nights in October, overall break was fantastic. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. We arrived at 11.30pm and still managed to get a snack and some drinks after being showed to the room. Initial room was small and didn't have a bath. We changed the room to a junior suite on the second... More

My husband and I recently returned from the Avani hotel and everything about our visit was extremely good. Our room overlooked the sea and was spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and great bathroom. There were tea and coffee making facilities and a safety deposit box and a mini bar. The food in the restaurant was varied and superb, the Sri... More

We stayed at Avani in mid October. The staff are very friendly, resort is very nice. The distance from the airport is a killer. The rooms were clean but we're infested with ants!! The hotel needs to do something with that! The food was lovely and lots of different options. I definitely recommend you book half board or all inclusive... More

We stayed 5 nights after a Sri Lankan tour. We had an all-inclusive deal which was welcome. Our room had a lagoon view which cost us extra -not sure this was worthwhile when you spend most of your time by the pool. Welcome was good with towels and a fruit drink. Room was spacious with an incredibly comfortable bed. The... More

We visited the hotel on the 16th of October for a retreat. The environment is great, the beach and the lagoons and also with friendly staff. Well maintained hotel compared to many hotels in the area.
