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...

I booked a room online. The next day I received a call from Mr A K Nimesh, a representative from the AVANI Resort, Kalutara. He confirmed my booking and gave me information about available options in early arrival and late check out. I just mentioned it is our anniversary day. When we arrived the resort, Mr Nimesh welcomed us, he was at the reception. It was a surprise that we received an anniversary cake delivered to our room. Room was good. The lunch was prepared especially for us as we were vegetarian on that day. It was wonderful! In overall our stay there was a memorable holiday!

Had a good time during our short stay at Avani Kalutara. should improve some staff service. Other than that we've enjoyed the foods, pool very well. Specially had an amazing cocktail from Miridiya bar. And I would like to suggest. It's better to have some benches on the lagoon side (Not under the coconut trees). so people can sit and read a book while enjoying the lagoon view.
