A contemporary resort in tropical paradise

Set among coconut groves on the golden sand of Kalutara, this unique resort enjoys a spectacular setting; where the Kalu Ganga River meets the Indian Ocean. It is contemporary in style, mixing neutral tones and bold colours, and the atmosphere has a laidback feel; with a sparkling pool and access straight to a beach. Taste exciting cuisine in a variety of international and locally-inspired dishes, and keep active with activities on land and on the water.

Everything you would expect from a fancy hotel

Kaunas, Lithuania

Stayed in Avani Kalutara Resort with the family of 5 for 10 days and every one of them was very enjoyable and as cosy as it could be. We were staying in the hotel on New Year’s Eve and I must say that hotel did a really good job to make the event as good as possibe. The dinner had a lot of chefs making the best of each meal. It literaly took half an hour to see all of them, needless to say it would have taken like a week to taste all of them. Also there was a live music band making a nice performance so it made the evening awesome. Regarding the rest of the stay, rooms were clean and cosy, however, if you are planning to stay 3 in one room that may be a little bit disappointing because rooms are not that big for 3 people and additional bed is placed in the middle of the room. We stayed in sea view and lagoon view rooms during our stay and both views were really good. Lagoon view is more quiet and has less sunlight during the day compared to the sea view. Dining area is nice, food is really good and has a wide variety of meals every day. Pool area very nice and clean as well, staff holds different sports activities everyday. My recommendation for you: make sure you take a walk in the beach to see local fishermen pulling the gigantic fishing net, also if you like swimming in the waves you should do it just before the sunset. We did it every day on 2 red flags but it was very nice experience, though, you have to be really careful because the waves hit you good. P.S. you will meet some local guides by the pool area who will offer you to go on sightseeing trips. They may look suspiscious at times, but some of them are really kind people. We went on a trip with one of them and it was a very pleasant and interesting trip. If you wish to see some places around with the local guide, look for the guy named Mishel, guy is super friendly, kind and does his best to make your trip as much enjoyable as possible.
