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.

Good Food but Lousy Service

Kaduwela, Sri Lanka

Visited Avani Kalutara with family for the Sinhalese new year holidays. Resort is a beautiful big resort offering excellent food. Rooms are clean and pool is nice too. However, service was bit horrible. Room service was a nightmare when devilled prawns arrived when ordered for a battered prawn dish and initial order delivery tool more than 40 mins. Then the correct delivery took another 30 mins. Then another cocktail order was delivered to a wrong room and it took more than one hour for the delivery. Used dishes are not taken on time and drinking water refill doesn't happen on time and guests have to tell the waiters to take the used dishes away. People will think twice before re-visiting Avani Kalutara if these silly mistakes are not taken care of no matter how good the food is.
