A chic retreat beside a stunning golden-sand beach, Avani Bentota Resort & Spa is situated on the south coast of Sri Lanka, offering modern comforts in an exotic location. The décor throughout is sleek and contemporary, while there’s plenty of opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture, from authentic cuisine to traditional dance and music performances.
Ease away stresses and strains at Avani Bentota’s restful spa. Aromatic oils and herbs are used to refresh and revitalise you – and your partner, in the rose-scented couples’ treatment room – with massages, wraps and facials. If you’re in need of a serious detox and de-stress, choose a three-day package and leave feeling back to your best.
All rooms and suites at Avani Bentota face the sparkling turquoise ocean and have their own balcony or terrace so you can make the most of the enticing views. Cutting-edge 40-inch TVs, DVD players and rain showers, as well as contemporary furniture and fittings, add to the hotel’s luxury feel, while the deluxe suites have A-list-style butler service to cater to your every whim.
The calm, warm waters at Avani Bentota’s private beach are ideal for snorkelling, diving and other water sports – lessons are available from the resort’s professional instructors – or just recline on the soft sand and soak up the peace and tranquillity. For a taste of the region’s wildlife, you could head out on a mangrove boat safari where you’ll spot exotic birds and crocs, or learn about sea turtles at the local hatchery.
Breeze and Frangipani are Avani Bentota’s two restaurants, where you can dine on local specialities such as lobster with spicy noodles, as well as a wide variety of other international cuisines, in cool, elegant spaces. For a special dining experience, a table can be set on your room’s patio or balcony, or beside the lulling waves on the picturesque beach.
