Stayed at this hotel for six nights in February 2012. Was very impressed by the hotel. Rooms were clean, comfortable and air conditioned. The staff were very helpful, always smiling and nothing seemed too much bother.
We stayed all inclusive which I was pleased about as there was a wide variety of food that was excellent.
Pool and the surrounding area was clean with plenty of sun loungers. While we were there the red flag was up on the beach so were not able to swim in the sea. This was not a problem for us as there was the pool and also the lagoon at the other side of the hotel. The beach was nice for a walk but watch out for the beach boys who can be quite persistent and annoying. They try to sell you trips which luckily enough we had arranged with Yohan from the Red Lobster Restaurant down the road(would recommend this). They are lovely people.
Would recommend the hotel for people looking for a good hotel on a relaxing atmosphere in beautiful surroundings.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Breathe in that fresh sea air and feel the warmth of the sun against your skin. Before you, lies the ocean; behind you, the Kalu Ganga river, twisting almost 100 miles back to Sri Pada, the sacred mountain believed to be the footprint of the Buddha. Where the river meets the ocean, you'll find AVANI Kalutara Resort, and discover a place where your dreams of an island paradise come true.. This hotel was formely known as Kani Lanka Resort & Spa. Skim the white waves of the Indian Ocean on board a traditional fishing boat, or watch the sunlight glitter on the water as you kayak along the riverside... it's almost like you're paddling through diamonds. Later, draw close to the warmth of the beach-side fire and share stories of another incredible day. Savour every bite of that juicy fresh seafood and enjoy a sunset that's beautiful beyond belief... ... more less
