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...

After being refurb the hotel is looking better than ever. It is in a great setting between the sea and lagoon with lovely pool. Friendly staff but not pushy. Good choice of food with a lovely breakfast buffet. Just bring a book and relax.

We had a wonderful weekend at Avani. The resort is situated next to the Kalutara Lagoon. The location itself is peaceful and serene providing a highly relaxing experience. The resort is very clean and is built with an open concept, with hallways opening up to the outdoors to view the beautiful greenery and the lagoon. The room was very comfortable. We got one overlooking the lagoon with a wonderful view. The food was great! We had the breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet, all 3 of which were excellent. The spread was good and food tasted delicious! The resort also had a pool which was well maintained, a gym which was well equipped and even provided bicycles to ride around the pathway in the resort. The beach was very clean and was perfect for the evening stroll while watching the sunset. The staff were wonderful and friendly, especially Nimesh and Wathsala who were helpful and attended to all our needs from the day we checked in. Very appreciative to them! Highly recommend this resort for a wonderful stay!

The staff at Avani Kalutara were friendly and very welcoming with very high standards. We tried all 3 buffets , and the food was of very high standard. The selection was excellent as it served all kinds of options including meats and seafood. Nimesh at the front desk counter was very helpful when we were checking out .😊 Overall 5/5 experience . The resort has a bike rental service which we loved .We rode around the whole resort and it was very calming away from the hetic city life.

We spent a lovely one night stay at this hotel with a large group. It was ideal for a large group due to ample recreation spaces and the large pool plus the seperate baby pool. Food was very tasty and upto the International standards with lot of variety. Very helpful and friendly staff. Would not hesitate to return.
