The Avani Serendib Bentota is situated on the South West coast in Bentota, the hotel was designed by world-renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, who took inspiration from an 18th Century Dutch village to create a romantic home-away -from-home with a spectacular beach-side setting. The hotel underwent extensive refurbishment in 2011 and today offers a very good standard of 4* accommodation. There are 60 superior rooms, 13 deluxe rooms and 2 suites. The deluxe rooms are approximately twice the size of the superior rooms and offer outstanding value for money. Both the deluxe rooms and suites benefit from a butler service.
The hotel offers an excellent range of facilities including two restaurants, three bars and opportunities for private dining on the beach or in the BBQ area. With two fresh water pools and direct access on to the Bentota beach it is a perfect place to relax. The Garden Spa with four therapy rooms offers a range of therapies for relaxation, wellness, sunburn, & stress relief. Available in the lagoon close by to the hotel are water sports including water-skiing & jet skiing. For those looking to make excursions, the turtle hatchery is close by and the Galle Fort can be reached within one hour to the south. In our opinion this is one of the best value beach resorts in the island.
