Your Destination

AVANI Kalutara Resort is just ten minutes away from the historical town of Kalutara on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. At the tip of the Kalu Ganga River mouth, which twists almost 100 miles from Sri Pada – the sacred mountain believed to be the footprint of the Buddha, the resort is situated directly at the point where the river water pours into the vast Indian Ocean

Your Hotel

AVANI Kalutara Resort blends authentic Sri Lankan culture and old colonial charm with contemporary design flair and all the ingredients that really matter for an escape of laid back relaxation. Hide away in paradise, between a tropical palm fringed beach and the Kalu Ganga River. Cruise the ocean waves aboard a traditional boat or kayak along the river. Explore fascinating sites, such as the world’s only hollow Buddhist shrine and an elegant plantation mansion. Return to indulge in remedial pampering with an Ayurvedic spa ritual.

Just for you: 1 complimentary 4 course candle lit dinner. 

Savour great food with a stunning ocean or river view. Choose from four restaurants and bars to suit your mood and palate. Dine on international specialties and authentic Sri Lankan recipes, presented in tempting a la carte menus and generous buffet style. Follow a dip in the pool with exotic refreshments, and toast sumptuous sundowner cocktails. While our in-room dining service and unique specialty experiences transform mealtimes into indulgent occasions.

Your Time

The long stretch of unspoilt beach provides the perfect base from which to explore the area, be it meandering along river, paddling through the old canals to passing through unspoiled countryside and experiencing the local culture. Kalutara is widely recognised as a nature lover’s haven; marvel at the white vented drongo, eagles, owls, white-breasted waterhen, Ceylon myna, pigeons, doves and black-hooded oriole swooping overhead.

Famous for its colourful, soft basketry, a visit to the Kalutara Basket Centre exhibits the work of local craftsmen.  A short trip to the neighbouring town of Palataota is a must for a site inspection of Richmond Castle, an exquisite country house in a 42-acre fruit garden estate. Built in 1896 this magnificent hybrid of Indian & British architecture was originally a spice plantation mansion.

Back at the resort and overlooking the river, guests have the opportunity to try Yoga at no extra charge under the watchful gaze of our experienced Yoga Instructor once a week. In addition to a sun-drenched swimming pool and shaded children’s pool, sports facilities at the resort include a choice of non-motorised water sports such as windsurfing, canoeing, sailing the ocean in a catamaran and kayaking down the Kalu Ganga River under the guidance of trained instructors. For more traditional sports there is a well-equipped gym as well as flood-lit tennis courts and beach volleyball.
