We have stayed at several Taj properties and this is well up to the Taj standard. It's a large resort hotel set on the beach at Bentota. The grounds are reasonably extensive and offer direct access to a nice beach, although the beach is a little spoilt by touts, who although not too pushy are an annoyance. Our room was... More

Vivanta by Taj at Bentota. Stayed August/September for 14 nights. British couple. After over 30 years of preferring the Far East for our annual break decided to give Sri Lanka a go, and very much glad we did. Chose Vivanta with a little help and persuasion from Kuoni and can honestly say it was the best hotel we have stayed... More

Vivanta by Taj is the best name in luxury resorts. Taj Bentota one of the nicest properties that I have been to. It is away from the main city and located by the sea. They have their own private beach. The resort is beautifully constructed in a semi circular shape - the advantage is that there are several sea facing... More

Fantastic location and service in this great hotel but with a huge negative aspect... no free wifi which is pretty shocking for a 5* hotel. The breakfast buffet is very good but they rarely have fresh juices (unusual in this country). A part from these two factors everything else was perfect.

Loved everything about the place. Located right smack on the beach, you could start off with a stroll on the beach after breakfast, then a dip in the pool, may be some more beach after lunch (can't get enough of that beach) - and wind down with a lazy drink at the Shack...*bliss*. The service was brilliant, the staff were... More

My partner and I stayed here for 1 week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the service is great. It's a little expensive for what it is, but we had a great time and would go back.
