We have recently come back from a wonderful holiday in Kani Lanka. The hotel was lovely, very relaxing and pretty surroundings. The Rooms could be a little damp due to the humitity of the area in which the hotel is situated, not much they can do but just keep the AC on and you'll be fine. Other than that very nice room.
Every evening our beds were turned down and fresh flowers arranged on them and a quick spray of mossy repellant and then in the morning your sheets are changed and then more fresh flowers arranged and the room is cleaned thoroughly.
As for the food - WONDERFUL!! So much to choose from, so fresh and wonderfully prepared. Say hello to the Salad man he is lovely, he makes you a wonderfully fresh salad with your choice of ingredients.
The only problem we had with the hotel was only with the odd member of staff who expected tips from you, the service was great if not a little overboard, but the senior staff expected the tips, when actually it's not them doing all the work. I chose to tip the waiters and waitresses who gave me the best service not those who basically stand at your table and beg for it.
We had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka, and we would thoroughly recommend the Kani Lanka Hotel.
Just one other thing to be aware of - we went shopping in Kalutara and were met by a Sri Lankan who told us he recognised us from the hotel he said he worked in the reception and could he help us with buy some medical supplies, unfortunately we believed him and he pulled a con and I gave him £10 for something that was worth about 50pence. My own gullible fault just be warned that although on the whole the Sri Lankans are lovely people, very warm and friendly there is always one that has to spoil it.
- 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
