The Avani resort, Kalutara is situated in a very strategic location - The Kalutara beach is in front of the hotel and a lagoon on the other side. So, you can enjoy both sunrise and sunset in this resort - which makes it one of the most awesome properties on the southern Sri Lanka beaches.
The room however was quite disappointing - quite small. Funnily the height of the bedside table is 1 foot below the bed height, so to keep and pick anything you need to bend down. The housekeeping is also not up to the mark, they missed out quite a few things while arranging the room - had to call up even for a TV remote which they forgot to keep in the room.
The breakfast is sumptuous and tasty. It has a huge spread of Sri Lankan delicacies - hoppers, sambals, chicken and fish curry. Also a nice spread of standard breakfast too - like eggs, sausages, bacon, porridge etc. Try the poached egg hoppers there - really great.
Overall though comfort wise the hotel has some way to go, the scenic beauty makes up for it - sunset on the beach and sunrise on the lagoon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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... ... more less
