The all important “L” word
As any good real estate agent would tell you, when it comes to properties one of the key factors is location, location, location! While Kalutara may have many resorts to choose from, look to find one right by the shore. Beachfront access offered at properties like AVANI Kalutara Resort mean that you can begin and end your day by the ocean.
Keeping to budget boundaries
It is important to find a resort that fits your budget. Sounds easy enough but do remember you will have a lot of choices and as any good shopaholic will tell you, always “shop around” for the best bargains. It is not uncommon to find resorts offering deals and special packages that pack on the extras while not deflating your bank account.
Home away from home
A room should not just be a place to rest your head at night, but rather a private hideaway where you can be yourself with family or that special someone. Look for a resort that offers a room with a view (especially the ocean) along with all those extra comforts like satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and a private balcony.
Where leisure is life
Since you are on holiday you should definitely be looking for a resort in Kalutara that lets you indulge in a getaway where you can be as lazy or as active as you want. An onsite pool is a must, while other features like a spa, kids club and water sports access are all things worth having.
Kalutara offers some seafood sensations and ideally look to find a resort that has its own dining options that let you sample these sublime dishes along with exotic Sri Lankan fare. Some properties give you the chance to even have a private beachside meal along with cool cocktails as you watch the sunset paint the sky in fiery hues.
