With AVANI your time is your own, to do as much or as little as you please. Four pools make it easy to refresh and relax. Swim and sunbathe with Indian Ocean and marina views. Take a break for drinks and snacks at shady tables, or just order from your lounger if you’re feeling lazy. Staying in shape is more tempting when you can workout anytime, so we keep our gym open 24 hours. If you’ve got time to fit in trips, go bird watching at a lake that’s a favourite spot for local fisherman, or explore mangrove life and huge bats at an eco-friendly bush camp.
