Our family of three (one being a toddler) enjoyed our stay at Avani very much. We were over at Vivanta and wanted to extend our stay, but they were fully booked.
My husband went to talk with a representative at Avani to see if they had any availability and to see the rooms. Sumal showed him a one bedroom suite, which I would call a villa, which was available, and for a lesser price than the deluxe room we had at Vivanta. My husband booked for one night and the next day, we made the switch.
The suite was detached from the main hotel building, nestled near the pool and had beach access. It had a spacious living/dining room, a very large bedroom and enormous bathroom with a jacuzzi bathtub and separate shower. The baby crib was already set up when we walked in. The decor inside was modern, clean and inviting. There was a private patio with wooden chaise lounges. Wifi was also complimentary.
Sumal greeted us upon our arrival in the lobby and took us immediately to the suite so that I could see it for the first time. He then checked us in from the suite, we didn't have to go back to the front desk. There was a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates in the suite. We also had our own security guard dedicated to our suite 24/7. Not that this was necessary; we have felt safe during our entire time in Sri Lanka.
The service we received right from the beginning of our stay was exceptional. We decided to extend our stay, and the manager, Tissa, immediately sent over a fruit basket full of delicious fruit. On the second day we received a basket of different bananas from the island.
The resort has a tranquil feel to it. There is a lot of green, open spaces. There are 2 pools and 1 kiddie pool, as well as beach access, which I mentioned earlier. While the amenities are nice, it was our villa and the friendly hospitality of the staff that made our stay so enjoyable. I would definitely stay at this resort again and would recommend it to family and friends.
