Avani Kalutara Resort


Breathe in that fresh sea air and feel the warmth of the sun against your skin. Before you, lies the Indian ocean; behind you, the Kalu river, twisting almost 100 miles back to Sri Pada, the sacred mountain believed 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.

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…
