Chill, relax, swim, play, tan, enjoy and dive into this escape haven. Two great pools and a beach at your service! This is the place to be if you're seeking a really good breeze of some free, memorable time. Everyone is laid back and the living is easy!

Had cocktails on the beach watching the sunset, lovely experience and excellent value. Great cocktails and canapés with Ranga and his staff. The buffet evening dinner in The Breeze Restaurant is superb, great selection for every taste. Staff can't do enough for you. The hotel is right on the beach and room 131 can be recommended. Facilities include 2 lovely swimming pools and spacious gardens.

Room Tip: All rooms have beach/sea view

This was our first time at Avani. We booked 2 double rooms and stayed on Saturday night. Did not know what to expect as it was a refurbished hotel formerly known as the Serendib. We liked it very much. The hotel was very clean and had courteous staff. There are two pools very conveniently located and the beach is right outside. Rooms are quite nice. we had some hiccups with the TV. The screen said that everything will be charged, but when we called the front desk they said there will be no charge. One of the staff personally took us to Sunshine Inc .for some fun water sports. There was a cultural performance on Saturday night. Parking is a little away from the hotel, but the area is very safe. Overall, compared to some of the other hotels around, Avani is worth the money.

Stayed in a ground floor deluxe room which was very large and well laid out. Ample space for two adults and two kids. Staff were very courteous and helpful particularly the staff at Chatters Bar. Try the ala carte menu at the Chatters Bar which has some good dishes. Dinner at the Breeze restaurant was not that great and could improve.

Two nice swimming pools and next two the bentota strip of wide golden beach. The free movies including some new releases in the room tv system kept the kids occupied. The chatters bar is a great place to relax and overall the hotel stay was very pleasant and recommended,
