My first time in Sri Lanka, and was somewhat let down at all places i visited but this property. Avani is nice, convenient, relaxing and good value for the buck. Travelling as a couple, we enjoyed the rooms, the bar, pool and the beach was great with acres of soft sand. You can surf, snorkel (although not mch coral, some fish) dive, go deep sea fishing or just relax and soak some sun. Ideal time to travel will be from December-April. However, its not suited for children and the night life entertainment in the hotel as well as the area lets it down a bit.
But Avani being a sister concern of Anatara Resorts in Thailand and Maldives, does live up to its reputation.More
