A super place to wind down and walk on sandy beach

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

AVANI BENTOTA RESORT , SRI LANKA – November 2019 This is a lovely hotel. It has 2 pools one of which was just outside our room so very convenient. The main pool was further along the gardens and used more so our pool was quite quiet. Breakfast was challenging. We were in early every day as early risers, but they had difficulty keeping up with the demands, several times we had to request a refill of different dishes. However the food was tasty. The beach is complimented with the clear sandy beach and blue water. We are members of GHA but there was no acknowledgment of the Alliance. We had room service every night as not much in the way of restaurant’s within walking distance outside the hotel. Staff very pleasant, especially the room boys who enjoyed a laugh and did clever things with the towels.
