The service was awesome and the food was good as well; it was a large group that traveled and the arrangements were perfect. Small suggestion to have some variety of food for Dinner & Breakfast other than that all good.

I was there with my office crowd and family. Delicious food,reasonable varieties with action stations for all 3 meals. Clean rooms and very good room services. It’s better if they can add some activities for kids in the hotel premises.

About
Description
Breathe in that fresh sea air and feel the warmth of the sun against your skin. Before you, lies the ocean; behind you, the Kalu Ganga river, twisting almost 100 miles back to Sri Pada, the sacred mountain believed More to be the footprint of the Buddha. Where the river meets the ocean, you'll find AVANI Kalutara Resort, and discover a place where your dreams of an island paradise come true.. This hotel was formely known as Kani Lanka Resort & Spa. Skim the white waves of the Indian Ocean on board a traditional fishing boat, or watch the sunlight glitter on the water as you kayak along the riverside... it's almost like you're paddling through diamonds. Later, draw close to the warmth of the beach-side fire and share stories of another incredible day. Savour every bite of that juicy fresh seafood and enjoy a sunset that's beautiful beyond belief...

You take a Tut Tut to where ever you like within a few miles, a taxi if further. Both are chesp and oftenthe same owner/driver. I recommend the train to Columbo but it is not for the fait hearted.
