A contemporary resort near the historic city of Galle on Sri Lanka's beautiful south coast
Beach | History & culture | Relaxation
Set on a peninsula with the Indian Ocean on one side and the mighty Kalu Ganga River on the other, the AVANI Kalutara Resort seamlessly blends authentic Sri Lankan culture, old colonial charm and contemporary design.
The resort boasts 99 inviting rooms and suites, all recently refurbished, with furnished balconies or terraces and either courtyard, lagoon or sea views. Each room has air conditioning, WiFi access, satellite TV and a revitalising rain shower.
There are two superb restaurants at the resort; Mangroves, with a choice of river and sea views and Moya, with a gorgeous ocean-facing terrace, and both offering guests unforgettable a la carte and buffet-style dining with a wide choice of local specialities and international dishes. The resort also has two bars: Karadiya, offers thirst-quenching poolside cocktails and Miridiya, with views over the Kalu Ganga river, is the perfect spot for a refreshing evening sundowner.
The pool and spa naturally beckon and make a great spot to relax after a day exploring nearby UNESCO World-Heritage-listed Galle, an old port town with a fascinating history that gives visitors a real insight into day-to-day Sri Lankan life.
