We were traveling with few families and surely this was one of the the most amazing stays we ever had and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Raj and his team at AVANI were superb from the reservation till the departure to provide the best service to us. Hotel was very beautiful with breathtaking views of Indian Ocean. Rooms were spacious, new and was opened to the garden and beach. Toilets were very clean and with all amenities.Food was great and it was more than to our expectations. More than all staff are always with a big smile to explore the ways to make their guests happy. They looked in to each aspects of their guests to delight them and even to offer a surprise birthday cake to one of the guests traveled with us and to decorate the room. All in all it was a superb stay and we will come back again. Once again thanks to Raj and Team, you guys are simply outstanding.

Hotel's Favorite
I stayed in the Avani for 16 nights in April 2022 with my wife and our two children (aged 14 and 10). We had a wonderful time, would have no hesitation in returning, and would recommend it to others. A clean, quiet environment with two pools and a stunning beach outside. Ideal for people looking for a relaxing time. The buffet food was of a high standard and had plenty of options. What makes this hotel are the staff, all of whom we found to be friendly, helpful and hard-working. They all deserve credit but our special praise goes to Saman and Taranga [who kept our room clean and tidy, while making delightful animal "sculptures" from towels] and Ranga and the female waitress in the buffet restaurant. We go to the Bentota area every two years or so, so hope to stay in the Avani again.

We had a great stay at Avani on the tail end of our trip around Sri Lanka. It was the perfect place to sit by the poo and relax before flying home. Great rooms, super attentive staff and two awesome pools. Also right about on the beach if you prefer an ocean swim. Buffet was also incredible. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough 👌
