This was formerly the Sindbad Hotel and has now been given a face lift. The best thing about it is that it is sandwiched between river and ocean.

But from my recollection of a visit to Sindbad many years ago, the sea and river frontage are not as nice as they used to be.

It was a pleasant day out in a pleasant hotel - can't really call it star class. The food was ok and the staff was nice.

We've just come back from 12 nights at this hotel and we couldn't fault it. The food, the people were amazing, The hotel is very clean, the pool area is spotless. I would recommend this hotel to people who like a nice quite and relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: The trains can be heard if you stay on the river side of this hotel, so go for the courtyard or facing the pool and sea.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in December 2013. The property is situated in Kalutara which is not a very popular destination when compared to Bentota or Hikkaduwa, However the resort is self sufficient. Its the perfect place to chill and just do nothing. Its got its own private beach, beautiful rooms . Our room was on the ground floor with a private balcony and one could just walk to the beach from the balcony. The hotel staff was very friendly. However it became a little annoying once when we had spoken to someone at the reception about booking some tour and we had to follow up with them 4 times to get a reply. But overall the staff was very helpful. The hotel tried to have some new activity everyday . So one day there was a Sri lankan food night where they had outside seating all lit up and very romantic with various live counters and other Sri lankan delicacies. Another day they left a note in our room inviting us for free drinks and snacks in their bar. Very innovative and personal :)...all in all a fabulous experience!!!!

We stayed here for 2 nights from 23rd January 2014 at Superior Lagoon View and I was totally impressed by the overall experience I had on our honeymoon at Avani Kaluthara. It was a nice experience for both of us, with some sort of Eastern and Western menus and some outdoor activities. Didn't feel like isolated because of the fabulous and friendly customer service which oriented towards both the local and foreign customers. This would be a place where I'd visit again for sure.

Room Tip: If you like to stay calm and cool, the lagoon view rooms would be the best fit.

My husband and I stayed one evening at the Avani hotel. lovely friendly welcome from staff who couldn't be more helpful. The room was lovely but overlooked the courtyard and the roof of the hotel so no nice view and all the extra beds and cots being stored next to our room, but not really an issue as we were not staying. but big shock was the grey towels in the bathroom really not nice.
The food was buffet style with little choice but fresh and well presented.
the restaurant was soulless and more like a canteen.

the pool is lovely and lovely view of the beach and the sea.

quiet and restful, it just lacks character and white Towels..

Room Tip: ask for a sea view.
