AVANI Bentota Resort & Spa, Bentota
Very Good8.0
Nice property perfectly located on beautiful beach
Must stay in the new renovated hotel room area. We were very happy and satisfied with our room. Many other hotel guests told us how unhappy they were with the 'old wing' rooms. Our room was clean, comfortable and very convenient to pool, beach, lounge area and breakfast, which was outstanding. The beach is beautiful and stretches for a mile + in either direction, so great for long walks. Sunsets are directly in front of beach/hotel grounds. Beautiful lounging grounds with palm trees and shade. Bar staff and service is hit or miss, not very accommodating.

I was hesitant to spend the money to stay here after all of the bad reviews. I am so glad I did stay here. The staff is wonderful & helpful. The facilities are beautiful. It is very relaxing. I thought the food was delicious (vegetarian).

To expensive for the quality of the hotel
Advertised as a 5* service of a 3*.. would not recommend booking this hotel if you are expecting a service which reflects the price..
