Avani Kalutara Resort & Spa (extensively refurbished in 2012 and formerly Kani Lanka Resort) enjoys a spectacular and tranquil beachfront south-west coast setting, 10 minutes from the historic fishing community of Kalutara. Framed by tropical gardens and 22 acres of coconut groves, it lies at the tip of a peninsula between the ocean and the mouth of the Kalu Ganga river delta. Blending a serene contemporary design with polished wooden floors and distinctive Sri Lankan accents, this warm, welcoming and utterly easy going resort makes a perfect choice for laid-back beachside unwinding and re-energising -but with the option of a wide range of amenities and activities right on hand.

Daytime relaxation venues include the beautiful infinity swimming pool, the dazzling palm-lined beach, some gentle pampering at the Ayurvedic spa, or perhaps a leisurely river trip by boat along the Kalu Ganga. If you like a livelier pace then head for the water sports, the fitness centre or the tennis court (day or night play). After dark you can dine on authentic local and delicious international fare in a choice of restaurants or at a beach barbeque - and enjoy live music and cultural shows.

Each of the guest rooms and suites offers cool and stylish comfort, with a private terrace or balcony view over the vibrant tropical gardens, the peaceful river lagoon or through the palms to the ocean.
