We have recently returned from 7 nights at the Taj. The food was excellent, we eat most nights in the Palms which served buffet style food, there was a wide and different choice each night. The pool and the beach were beautiful and my son played in them all day. My only complaint is the chargeable WiFi I find it... More

We went along with another family and stayed for 2 nights. The stay was great. Food was very nice and the Chef INFACT made many dishes of our liking. The location is simply fantastic. The staff are very, very co-operative. All in all it was the best part of our stay in Srilanka. Any one who has stayed at Taj... More

As part of a 2 week March Sri Lankan holiday, we spent the second week at the Vivanta. Having previously stayed at this well appointed & located hotel soon after the Tsunami, my partner was keen to return as part of a special birthday celebration. We were definitely not disappointed. Our sea facing room was excellent: spacious, modern and very... More

I stayed 4 nights in this property. From the first impression I got upset. Lack of service from the bell desk itself. Rude staff, No smiles and greetings at all, its like we are staying free for them. Lack of attention in the dinning area, need to beg for a fill up. The only thing that I like is the... More

We returned in February from 2 weeks in Sri Lanka for our belated honeymoon. My Grandfather was born in Colombo in 1894 however no one from the family had been to this beautiful Island.

I stayed at the Vivanta with a group of friends. We had a wonderful room (109), although, not all my friends had that chance. The bed was so comfy and the room very well decorated. Funny that at night: we couldnt watch all the TV channels! The swimming pool was nice. The breakfast was really good. We also had lunch... More

It was an enjoyable stay. The location is accessible to nearby places. Although the hotel is located on a beautiful beach, but cannot swim in the sea because of the high waves, however it has a beautiful sandy beach.

We just came back from a 6 day stay in Taj, Bentota having a 2 1/2 year old. It is always the most challenging part of the trip to have kids; so we decided to stay in one central location and travel to sightsee. TAJ hotel location is excellent: we were upgraded to sea view room near the pool and... More
