The spacious resort grounds and architectural design create an atmosphere of calm relaxation with a fusion of colonial and contemporary. Guests can enjoy a range of facilities and amenities including a swimming pool and spa and there is also a water sports centre nearby. The main restaurant serves both Sri Lankan and continental cuisine and the Beach Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing cocktail. Avani Bentota offers an exotic holiday romance or peaceful reflection.
The hotel serves a variety of cuisine to suit every palette at their two Restaurants and 3 Bars which also includes a wine cellar, and guests could even 'Dine by Design' where they could dine at any location of their choice at the hotel, and even ask the in-house chefs to tailor-make the menu's depending on what they are in the mood for.
Guests can relax and rejuvenate in the specialty Spa with a variety of therapies to choose from or stretch their muscles at the hotel's gym or in one of the two swimming pools facing the sea. The hotel is located in close proximity to the traditional Mask factory in Ambalangoda, the famous Turtle hatchery in Kosgoda and the renowned old Dutch Fort in Galle which are popular tourist destinations and ideal for those looking to explore the locality. The more adventurous guests could partake in a wide-range of watersports ranging from jet-skiing to riding a banana boat on the nearby Bentara river.
Had an enjoyable stay, wish we had upgraded, would like to go again
