Avani Bentota Resort and Spa.

NEWLY opened Avani Bentota Resort and Spa on the southern coast of Sri Lanka has the comfortable space and relaxing environment for an escape from everyday routines.

With its refreshingly understated ambience, quintessentially warm hospitality and delightful setting and facilities, this property inspires with a distinctive character and local charm.

The coastal town of Bentota lies on the southern tip of stunning Sri Lanka with its beaches suited to snorkelling, diving, sailing, wind-surfing, water-skiing and deep-sea fishing.

It is flanked by deep green landscapes and hidden lagoons, also making it a popular destination for romantic getaways and destination weddings.

A visit to the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery, embarking on a river safari or getting behind the wheel of a jeep for a tour through rubber and low-lying tea plantations are just some of the reasons Bentota in southern Sri Lanka is attracting a growing number of visitors.
