      Westernized Resort with Western Prices

      Although the facility and location were lovely, the value for what staying here cost was not what I expected. For example, my room was provided only 2 small courtesy bottles of water a day. I guess I just expected more service and “perks” for the princely sum I paid per night. The first day I had no towels. I called the front desk before heading outside but they still were not delivered and I had to go in person to request them. The food in the breakfast buffet and one restaurant I ate at was only so-so. It seems they are catering more toward westerners who don’t want a local experience, but would rather stay in their comfort zone. I had a delicious meal outside the resort for much less money. When I was shown to my room, the resort features were pointed out including the restaurants, spa, and pools. I was cautioned about swimming in the ocean because of currents, but it felt like the staff was just trying to keep guests within the resort. The proximity to the beach is why I chose the location and despite the warnings I spent considerable time on the beach and in the ocean which was warm and inviting with gentle waves and no undertow.

      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.

    • 6.0.Good

      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.

      Our first visit to Shri Lanka. Our stay at the resort was excellent and comfortable stay. The room was very clean which made our stay very comfortable. All the staffs are very polite and offer great customer service with a smile. We were only not satisfied with the massage and the gym facility is very poor so did not use it. Chatters can be improved with more entertaining facilities in the evening, having said that the service is great. In the chatters they should have facilities for the smokers outside the eatery/bar place. The beach is excellent with golden sand. We will definitely visit Shri Lanka and stay at Avani. Breakfast, lunch and dinner facilities are excellent and very appetizing.

      Överlag är vi nöjda och det var väldigt avslappnat, vilket var syftet med hela resan. Menyn vid poolbaren behöver verkligen förbättras. Inget av det vi beställde smakade som det skulle
