It was an exciting stay. The hotel staff was very friendly a rare thing in Benthota to be honest. The food was really good and the spread was extraordinary. I recommend to get a deluxe room which was extremely spacious. Altogether I loved the total experience.

The place needs of much improvement. Arrival needs to be more welcoming. Buffet food needs to have a better selection. Recommend anyone visiting the place book on BB basis rather than Full Board. Better having both lunch and dinner out.

A very pleasant stay at Avani Bentota. Great food, comfortable rooms and overall excellent service. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Special mention must be made of the breakfast buffet - the variety of food items available was super and the food quality was great as well.
