Set on the golden sands of Bentota, the Avani Bentota is a stunning resort and one of the most popular places to take holidays to Sri Lanka. It has coconut palm trees and 8 acres of lush frangipanis nearby. There is a Dutch Village feel to the resort, as the décor is based on the 18th Century. There is a calm, relaxing feel to the atmosphere that the décor and architecture creates, and although the colonial feel is nice there are modern and contemporary touches throughout.
There are a range of facilities from the spa, water-sport centre and swimming pool. At the Beach Bar, guests on their Sri Lanka holidays tend to enjoy cocktails and cool beers to relax. The restaurant has international, Chinese, Thai, Malaysian and Indian cuisine as well as traditional Sri Lankan dishes too. It’s a great place for a romantic holiday in exotica or for a family trip of relaxation and rejuvenation.
There are two suites, 13 Deluxe rooms, 46 Superior and 14 Standard rooms at the Avani Bentota, all of which are beautifully decorated and well-appointed. With large, spacious rooms and views that are breath-taking, your holidays to Sri Lanka are supremely memorable.
You can opt for in-room dining, your very own chef or picnics on the beach so you can have plenty of time to yourself. As the rooms are warm and inviting, you’ll want to spend a great deal of time here. That’s why you’ll find tea and coffee making facilities, satellite TV and a writing desk too.
