“Fantastic Wedding”
Reviewed July 14, 2008

We got married at the Kani Lanka in October 2007. It was everything and more!!!! We took our four children and two mums with us and we all had a fantastic time. Weather in October was humid and damp as it was the rainy season but was still very enjoyable and no different to what we expected. The staff were attentive and the all inclusive food was fantastic, very Sri Lankan not Western (but they would do chips for one of our fussy kids!!)

Our wedding day was definately a day to remember with Kandyan dancers and Monica the elephant, who lifted us all up with her trunk one by one and my husband also was able to have a ride on her. Our wedding co-ordinator was on hand for everything on the day, our photo's were superb and also the video that we had taken.

If you need anything while you are there, just ask and the staff will bend over backwards to ensure your stay is a happy one.

Our wedding meal was absolutely out of this world and I would go back tomorrow for the Mariners Delight (seafood soup!).

We took our excursions with Stanley and Philip (locals on the beach), they couldn't do enough for us and our children and we would highly recommend using them. We had read about locals on the internet before we travelled and were a little sceptical when we arrived, but this is their main source of income after the tsunami and they really look after you and deserve anything that you give them.

The hotel itself was outstanding, with flower petals laid on the beds each night for that special touch. I highly recommend the Kani Lanka Resort & Spa and would would go back tomorrow,

Stayed October 2007

We went to Kani Lanka for the first part of our twin centre Honeymoon.
After a very tiring and adventurous 3 and half hour bus ride through Sri Lanka we trekked down a dirt track to see a beautiful oasis secluded at the end of road. What a change this was from a very busy and dirty high street. We were given an exceptionally warm welcolme with a flower garland around our neck, an infused towel and crushed melon drink. When asked why we holidayed there and were told because we were on honeymoon we were upgraded to a superior room free of charge. We had a gorgeous view of the pool and sea (although to be fair the sea was not that nice to look at) The room was cleaned once a day with a turn down service and bug spray in the evening.
We stayed on a half board basis - but to be fair we did not really miss lunch. The food was delicious - the fruit was so fresh and juicy for breakfast and dinner and I loved the curries out of those big pots - nothing like you ever get here at home. We also got an Early-bird dinner (complimantary) as we were honeymooners - which consisited of a private table out by the river - with our own private waiter. We had seven courses a print out of our menus with our room number and the date - a lovely momento.
The staff were very warm and friendly - although sometimes just a little too friendly.
Our travel rep was a Kuoni guide with whom we booked two trips through. We went to the Pinewala Elephant Orphanage and to the turtle hatchery - the more people you get to go on your trip - the cheaper it becomes for each of you. The trips were very reasonably priced - but what they don't tell you is that although you pay for one trip - you get other trips in within that one. The Elephant orphanage was a 4 hour trek one way and 4 hour back - it was worth it though. But we also got a trip to a spice garden (at first was very interesting but then they kept trying to massage us when we didn't want them too) and a trip to a tea factory. The trip to the turtle hatchery ended up being an hour bus ride to a 2 hour boat trip through mangroves and a pit stop off at a small island where we watched cinamon stick rolling and rope making out of coconut hair - to then get back on the bus to go 20 mins from our hotel.
Some parts of Sri Lanka were rather dirty and deprived - but then some parts were stunningly beautiful - particularly when we went up in the mountains and saw all the lush greens.
The thing we did not like about Sri Lanka was the constant beggars - at first when you hear the stories about the tsunami it is heart wrenching - but after the 50th time when really they are just trying to extract as much money out of you as they can-you become hardened to it - although I can say hotel staff did not do this so much. But as soon as you leave hotel premises you get pounced on and not left alone.
If you are a thrill seeker my hubby strongly recommends riding in the back of a tuk tuk - this is an experience as they just drive out into the road not really paying attention where they are going.

Well where shall we start. We have just got back after a wonderful two weeks at the Kani Lanka Resort & Spa. What an amazing hotel with friendly staff....."a home away from home!" When we arrived, we were told that for three weeks prior, southern Sri Lanka was devastated by flash floods and terential rain, especially in the Kalutara area where apparentley nine people unfortunateley died. Luckily, the gods must have been looking down on us because no sooner we got there, the sun came out for most of our holiday and considering it was monsoon season, we were very lucky. The best way to describe our holiday will be put it into categories so here goes.......

ROOM

We booked a superior sea view room. Unfortunateley, when we got there we were taken to a lagoon view room, well, we say lagoon view, but all we could see was the air con system, so we mentioned this straight away to the room boy and within a matter of minutes, we were relocated to our sea view room looking over the pool. So if your room is not what you expected, mention this to the staff and I'm sure they will change this for you so don't be afraid to ask. Our room, however in the evening was a little damp, but what would you expect after the recent floods. We didn't find this a problem. The trick is to keep the air con on and you will be fine. It does get chilly though so we just kept the fan on and this was ok for us. The room was cleaned every day and the sheets changed to a very high standard. After a long day by the pool it was a nice touch to return and have flowers decorativeley placed on our bed. The furnishings were very traditional and the bed was huge....fab :) When you did want an early night, especially if you had to get up early the next morning, the TV channels are ok, with a channel with lots of decent films. (Star Movies). Also, the hotel shop can lend you dvd's to watch at no extra cost.

ENTERTAINMENT

Every night there was always some form of entertainment, mainly singing. The good thing about this was not only was it modern music, but some golden oldies as well which was fab. One night, they even had the original Kandy dancers come and perform for us was a real treat. We actually saw the dancers in Kandy, but the guys that came to the hotel were 10 times as good with amazing traditional costumes.

RESTAURAUNT & BARS

The main bar was located inside which had a snooker table and lobby which was very tastefully decorated. We always went there to have a few cheeky drinks before dinner.......and after :)
The pool bar which, was also next to the beach, was very convenient as you just had too walk a few yards to get yourself an ice cold beer ,and was nice in the evening to sit under the startswith a cocktail.
The restauraunt was also set in traditional/modern style (fully air con'd), but if you wanted to sit outside they had tables there as well.
The food was out of this world with a different theme every night, from Italian to Arabic. It was too tempting though, 'cause even though we said we weren't going to have a lot, we came back with plates filled high. If your not the type that is adventuous with food, they also had an assortment of pastas with traditional roasts. The specialised dishes were also cooked fresh in front of you. As for the dessert section, anyone with a sweet tooth will be in heaven.

BEACH BOYS

When you first get there your rep will try and persuade you to do all your excursions and activities with them, and try to put you off using the beach boys. We decided to do all our trips with "Freddie" from the beach and was very, very pleased with his service and at a fraction of the cost that our rep was charging. Just to give you an idea, we decided our first trip was going to be a two night three day tour which included elephant trekking, seeing the elephants at the orphanage, Kandy, Sigiriya and Dumbulla with plenty of stops on the way gem factory, tea factory, botanical gardens etc..... For the same trip our reps price was £300 each, but with Freddie this was £110. The added bonus of this was that you weren't with a big group of people, we went with a lovely couple, so there was four of us and everything was tailored to our needs and never felt rushed. My only advice would be is to use the beach boys especially Freddie. He is a very kind and helpful person and will do anything to make your trip special. After the Tsunami devasted his family home and business, this is his way of making a living. After getting to know Freddie, he invited myself and Miles and the other couple who we went on our trip round to his home for tea. It was a very humbling experience to see how he lived. If you do decide to go with Freddie, tell him that Gareth and Miles said hello.

TRIPS

Our first trip was the two night three day trip. We reccommend that you do this at the start of your holiday so you have time to recover. It is fun packed, adventurous and full of interesting things to see and do. We was picked up at 5.30am, and travelled inland in an air con mini bus with another couple. If you ask at reception, they can provide you with a packed lunch. The first stop was the elephant orphanage. This is a must see. To see them all having their daily bath was a joyous site, particularly watching the baby one trying to climb a rock, but was too small to get on it. Then we went on an elephant ride which was also a very nice experience. On the way to Kandy, we stopped off at a tea factory and gem shop. When we got to Kandy, we saw a hotel in the hillside and it looked really nice. Who knew that this was the hotel we were heading for to stay for the night considering the cost of the tour. We had picturesque views over Kandy and the hills. After a little rest we then went to see the Kandy dancers and the temple of the tooth. To finish the night we had dinner at the hotel with amazing view of the night-time lights of Kandy. The room was also decorated to a very high standard but beware of the monkeys!! lol. We had an early start the next morning, so when you go for breakfast be sure to take lots of bananas back to your room because you may have some visitors. Not just one monkey......we had about 30 that came to say goodbye to us on our balcony. So we were late by about half an hour because we were feeding them all and taking pictures. The next stop was the beautifal botanical gardens. Very interesting place with all it's flora and fauna and history. The spice gardens was next. Again, very interesting to learn about spices and how they are used. The free massage topped it off. The only thing is, if your anything like me and the other half, we like our potions and lotions so ended up spending a fortune in the shop :) After this we started our journey to our hotel in Sigiriya. This hotel was not as nice as (Thilanka, in Kandy), but was comfortable. Very quiet there was our group of four and another family staying, so it felt as though we had the hotel to ourself. Anyway, we climbed Sigiriya Rock at about 4.30pm. The pictures don't do this spectacular place any justice. Amazing views and history, but not for the faint hearted, especially when your so high up and you have to pass killer bees nests on the metal steps. It's well worth it though. The views that you see from the top are beautifal. After the exhausting climb, we headed back to the hotel and chilled out for a while before going to the hotel restauraunt for dinner. We ended up having drinks with Freddie and our driver until the early hours. Freddie kindly brought a bottle of Arrack (Sri Lankan Whisky), which we all drank and got slightly tiddly. Was a nice way to get to know Freddie a little better and learn about his life. The next day we got up quite early to head to Dambulla and the golden temple. A very spiritual place that is visited by hindus and buddhist with a great history. All our tour guides were all included in the price....but we'll get onto tipping later.
Our second trip was a day out to Bentota where we went on a river cruise and the turtle sanctuary all in a tuk tuk. The tuk tuk ride was definateley an experience and fun. On the river cruise we got to hold a baby crocodile lol. Imagine that!
Our final trip was a day white water rafting! We had such a fab time doing this and would reccommend this to anyone who is adventurous like us. Again we went in the hills, and it was quite a long ride, but worth it. The river itself was where "Bridge Over The River Kwai" was filmed. We even got to jump into one of the rapids from a rock and if you wanted to the guide let you drift down the river for about 20mins, just floating and taking in all the beautifal mountains and scenery.

HOTEL/BEACH & GROUNDS

The Kani Lanka is set in a beautifal location on the mouth of the Kalu Ganga River. On one side was the Indian Ocean and on the other a beautifal lagoon. The grounds itself was manicured to a very high standard, and was really peaceful and romantic to walk around in the evening. Loved the firefly's!!! Unfortunateley, because of the floods the previous weeks, the beach wasn't upto it's usual standard filled with driftwood. It didn't affect the hotel though. The locals did their best to clear the beach daily and on the second week, was geting better. Clean enough to swim in. The sea was quite rough because of the monsoon season, but if you fancied having fun in the waves, the pool boys took you to make sure you were safe. I think they even welcomed the idea to give them a chance to cool down as well. There are two pools in the hotel. One for the kids and one for the adults. Both quite big and clean. The pool boys also held volleyball games everyday which was a fun way to get to know the other guests. The one downside of this was at the weekend, locals from the area used the hotel and pools and it can get quite busy and noisy, so thats when we reccommend you do your trips.
We also took advantage of the cannoos and did our own trip up the Kalu Ganga river and found our own little deserted beach with clean warm waters where we spent some time.
The hotel was decorated very tastefully with lots of features from the bronze statues to the carp filled pools.
There's a few bits and bobs in the shop ie postcards and trinkets, but we recommend the shop just out of the hotel grounds. It's around a two minute walk to Anthonys'. Unfortunateley, he suffers from Polio, but his prices are half the cost of the hotels.

STAFF

All the staff are wonderful and can't do enough for you. They always have a smile on their faces and will do anything to make your stay an enjoyable experience. The girl in the shop was very nice as well. We are a gay couple, and what made us laugh, they would ask if we were friends. We said yes, and then they would say, "Are you special friends?", and once again when we said "Yes", they always had a wonderful warm smile on their faces and said "Ahhhh". Funnily enough they all did this.

TIPS

Even though it's not expected it's always a nice compliment to tip the staff at the end of yor holiday. Especially the room boys who we gave a little extra too. One night we decided to walk to Kalutara town, and a guy called Silva came with us to make sure we were ok. Even though he walked with us barefoot there and back he wasn't expecting a penny. He just wanted to make sure that we didn't get lost and were safe. So please say hi to him too.

OVERALL

Fab holiday, amazing people, interesting and humbling people, people that are rich in their own way, culture filled with plenty to see and do.

ONE BIG MEGA TIP - Mosquitos........
If you are like me and the mossies love you for dinner, then Skin So Soft dry oil spray by AVON, is your cure. Not only does it keep the mossies, it's great for your skin.

We (family with 2 young kids) visited this resort in May 2008 for a week. The best part of the resort was the food - easily among the most well thought out and innovative cuisines we have had. The variety and spread was incredibly inviting as well. There was a salad station where a chef would mix your choice of salads; another station provided for sushi and yet another provided for creating your own mixture of noodles, pasta or rice. We were very impressed. Also, every day, the menu was different.

The downside of the resort was that the ocean was very rough - but not a fault of the management - just because of the season. The pool was crowded as a result. The grounds are large and one can get autos to go into nearby Kalutura. My son loved running around the grounds. As other readers have noted, the beach boys cum auto drivers are very helpful and knowledgeable.

The rooms (we stayed in a suite) had to be maintained at a constant 19 degrees celcius as otherwise, it would get mouldy! Some of the sheets and even curtains were mouldy - again, because of the environment though the employees tried maintaining it to their best ability.

Yes, we would go back there in a jiffy because of the terrific food though the rooms left a bit to desired!

We went on the First Choice Discover Sri Lanka tour for a week, and then stayed in Kani Lanka for the next 2 weeks, for our honeymoon.

ROOM
We booked a junior suite (room 450) which, as another reviewer mentions on a previous post, has a large lounge area as well as the bedroom area & bathroom.
The room was cleaned every morning, and also a room boy came early evening to turn down the bedsheets and spray mozzie spray around the room.
We were expecting to have the same room boy each day, so we could then give him a generous tip at the end, but it was actually a different room boy most days.
There were several geckos living in the room, which was rather endearing, they would pop out from behind the wall hangings and light fixtures! Some were only baby ones so perhaps there was a family moved in ;)

ENTERTAINMENT/SPORTS
In the evening there was usually a singer or keyboard player while we were having dinner, and sometimes a trio of guitar/sitar players who reminded us of the Patogonians from Harry Enfield's sketch!

I enjoy my sunbathing and book-reading by the pool, but my husband prefers to be more active, so he was pleased there were quite a few 'sports' on offer - the pool boys would challenge hubby to tournaments of table tennis, darts and cricket (which of course is their national game - so they were very good!). However the pool boys weren't pushy at all about getting people to play, if you wanted to just read your book or chill out, that was no problem.

FOOD
Unfortunately this is the one area where we felt was not great - although there was a fair range of foods available at the buffet, I'm vegetarian and there was limited choice for me - unless I wanted to go for a hot curry (there didn't seem to be any mild vegetable curries there) I had pasta most nights.
One evening we did have a special meal (7 courses!), which the hotel laid on free of charge as we were on honeymoon. They usually did a steak or seafood option but as I don't eat meat or fish, they made me a vegetable lasagne. Perhaps on the other nights if I'd asked for them to make me something vegetarian they would have done something special for me - so it's probably my fault as much as theirs.

The only real problem that we had at this hotel was both my husband and I had a heavy dose of Gastroenteritis (projectile vomiting and diahorrea) with a fever rolled in for good measure.
I got mine the first full day at Kani Lanka (after eating a pasta dish the night before from the buffet) and was out of action for 1-2 days, and to be honest I've still got a bit of a dodgy tummy now (2 weeks after I was ill).

My husband then got the same thing a week later, and we called the doctor out, who gave him a truckload of anti-biotics.
This was after eating a meat dish from the buffet the night before

It's a real shame that we had this experience, as it did put a downer on the Kani Lanka experience.
To be fair to the Kani Lanka though, we did ask a few other couples who were there if they were OK, and on the whole they hadn't experienced any Delhi belly.

Maybe we were just unlucky, but I do feel it was something to do with the food at Kani Lanka - as we had already been in Sri Lanka for a week on our tour, staying in different hotels, with no tummy problems

TRIPS
We booked 2 trips with First Choice after our welcome meeting - the trip to Galle (as this was pretty much the only key place we didnt see on our Discover Sri Lanka tour in our first week), and a boat trip called Wildlife & Waterways.
On the Galle trip we stopped the official turtle hatchery - which is charity-run, where we could see and stroke lots of turtles of all sizes. At Galle we saw the Dutch Fortress and also a monument for the 1300 people who died on a train in Galle, when the Tsunami hit - it was very humbling and sad.

Unfortunately we couldnt go on the boat trip, as this was when hubby has his stomach bug - however we went on another boat trip with the guy from the Kani Lanka boat house, where we saw water monitors, kingfishers and more.

I know lots of people go on trips with the beach boys, but we prefered to pay a bit more to go on the First Choice trips so we could be more certain we'd be properly insured etc

SERVICE
The service provided throughout the hotel was second to none, from the pool boys to the room boys, waiters and reception staff, all greeted us every day with a massive smile

There was a gift shop which we used to buy a few gifts for home and postcards, and they also rented DVDs (there was a DVD player in our room) so we hired 2 or 3 movies during the fortnight we were there.

The library was great (and lovely and cool with the air-con!) - so no need to fill up your suitcase with lots of books to read, just borrow them from the library - they had mainly fiction, and a few books on Sri lanka as well. There are also 2 computers in the library, so you can check your email if you want to (although the PCs do tend to get hogged by people sometimes!)

SPA
We went to the spa twice, once for a his n hers massage (I had a full swedish and hubby had a relaxing pitta massage), and then again the next week, where I had a slimming massage and hubby had an Indian head massage.
Prices were probably similar to UK (aprox 65 US dollars / £32) for a full swedish body massage, but so much more luxourious than the UK as we could hear the tropical birds chirping in the trees outside! Not cheap, but definitely worth doing

OVERALL
A beautuful hotel, very well maintained, and the staff were so friendly. Apart from our bad luck with both getting Gastroenteritis, it was a near-perfect honeymoon hotel

We have recently come back from a wonderful holiday in Kani Lanka. The hotel was lovely, very relaxing and pretty surroundings. The Rooms could be a little damp due to the humitity of the area in which the hotel is situated, not much they can do but just keep the AC on and you'll be fine. Other than that very nice room.
Every evening our beds were turned down and fresh flowers arranged on them and a quick spray of mossy repellant and then in the morning your sheets are changed and then more fresh flowers arranged and the room is cleaned thoroughly.
As for the food - WONDERFUL!! So much to choose from, so fresh and wonderfully prepared. Say hello to the Salad man he is lovely, he makes you a wonderfully fresh salad with your choice of ingredients.
The only problem we had with the hotel was only with the odd member of staff who expected tips from you, the service was great if not a little overboard, but the senior staff expected the tips, when actually it's not them doing all the work. I chose to tip the waiters and waitresses who gave me the best service not those who basically stand at your table and beg for it.

We had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka, and we would thoroughly recommend the Kani Lanka Hotel.

Just one other thing to be aware of - we went shopping in Kalutara and were met by a Sri Lankan who told us he recognised us from the hotel he said he worked in the reception and could he help us with buy some medical supplies, unfortunately we believed him and he pulled a con and I gave him £10 for something that was worth about 50pence. My own gullible fault just be warned that although on the whole the Sri Lankans are lovely people, very warm and friendly there is always one that has to spoil it.

beware of waiters and some staff of ripping you of, we had to cancel our fish dinner as my partner was not feeling well, to be told by the manager, that we could not cancel, very rude and also we were charged £30.00 for dinner we did not take or sign for in my eyes this is theft. waiters stealing money for drinks if you did not sign, would not go back to this hotel again and be made a fool of by crafty waiters and staff.

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.
