I think this maybe one of the best hotels in Bentota and we booked it after considering Taj's excellent hospitality and properties anywhere in the world. The property is beautiful and the best place to relax and walk on the beach and enjoy the sunset. Although it is also located quite close to the railway line, the other facilities superseded this mild annoyance. What our family liked the most was good quality Indian food as we were really craving for it although you might say the chef took a little bit of his own time preparing it. However it was ... very fresh and tasty. Great place to stay and it has given me a thought of celebrating my own wedding functions here. Will be back for sure. read hotel review

Luxury after trip.

  • February 2014
The extensive renovation the hotel is to be desired clearly very well done. Everything made a good, fresh impression - except for the bathroom, but the sequence: Very friendly front desk, an upgrade to sea view-category, a really great renovated rooms, so will one gladly received. Only the bathroom is with the work a bit scant. All public areas are very well maintained. The breakfast buffet offers a large variety. The dishes at lunch and in the evening are relatively expensive, but really worth the money. Very clean pool area, plenty of towels, mega-sandy beach about 3 kilometer in both ... directions. With some caution is swimming in the sea (surf). On foot in 10 minutes or with the {ent_transport_19852} you will find a good number of restaurants, where we always drove. Conclusion: a great beach-week after 10 - day trip - highly recommended. Who tips for a good guide should, i ask you to contact. read hotel review
