Actually stayed in August 2009 which was our chosen location for our wedding. The hotel was a fantastic place and everybody involved in the planning and execution of our wedding were wonderful and supportive of our needs and wishes, even Monica the elephant!
Rooms are spacious and clean with more than enough room for a holiday, food was fantastic with a wide variety of choice but a special mention must go to my wifes favourite pineapple crumble - devine, she actually wants to go back just for this dessert!
When we were there it was out of the main holiday season for Sri Lanka which meant a few days of cloud, but that is the chance you take I suppose, but it did not affect our holiday or wedding at all.
Sri Lanka itself is a wonderful country that more people should visit and when coupled with a honeymoon in the Maldives you can expect a really amazing time.
Overall very highly recommended.
- 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
