I have been to this property many times before. I like the cosy setting of the Hotel. I also liked their food but was somewhat disappointing this time, may be due to large crowd at the Hotel.

All other services were good, excellent cleanliness, staff & service.

Nice place, quiet and more relaxing. food is not as expected specially the dessert, but edible. :)
restaurant was in 1st floor, there is no lift so disabled and babies on go-cart have to be lift up.
staff is friendly and more attractive. watch out for wet floor on the corridor near pool area.

We came here on our Honeymoon and stayed for five days. The staff were always helpful and very friendly. They provided us with a special complimentary Honeymoon meal and birthday cake for my wife. The room was spacious and comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend.

The hotel has beach as well as lagoon access. The beach is large, the pool is comfy and the restaurants/bars are homely. There is a good and happy mix of green and sand around the hotel. The hotel is low rise and has an exotic sri lankan feel to it. The tiled roof is charming. For parties, they throw open doors to the garden and deck giving the whole place a very beach picnic-yard party feel without compromising on any frills that are expected of a hotel of this stature.
The staff is friendly and welcoming.
The neighboring sister concern (Anantara) is accessible and one can pop by there for spa or meals for a change. Do try the italian restaurant at Anantara. One can even plan a part stay in this property and part at Anantara which is a super plush and exotic boutique hotel. The road to the 2 hotels is a little tight and approach places it away from busy highways. This adds to the quietness and peace. There is a volleyball court on the huge beach and you can also play pool volleyball. For groups, they can arrange for people to manage the games...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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... ... more   less
