Great location on a fantastic beach. I booked the cheapest room through Expedia but for some reason management gave us a free upgrade to a spectacular villa. Gotta love that!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Avani Resort. The location was wonderful, the combination of the beach, which is amazing, and the Avani grounds with the pools and chairs and shade was really relaxing. The staff was super helpful and the food and spa also great.

3/5

I’ve been to a number of hotels in Sri Lanka. This one disappointed. The linen and room were a bit worn down. The staff did not always speak sufficient English (simple utterances). Breakfast was excellent though, but the rooms were definitely stuck in the previous century.
