The wife and I have just returned from an eleven night stay at the Vivanta By Taj in Bentota. It was absolutely wonderful, from the hotel, the pool area, the location and the food. I would recommend it to anyone. Their best asset is undoubtedly their staff, who were always friendly and helpful. Highlights are as follows: • Tell the... More

Location and the sea view rooms were the biggest appeal. Taj always have the most attentive and very accommodating staff. In particular, their Front office manager was helpful. Complete R&R hotel. There is an activity room to keep the young ones busy if they haven't fully tired themselves using the pool or spending time at the beach. We arranged a... More

We stayed at the Vivanta by Taj - Bentota for 7 nights last week and had an absolutely wonderful time from beginning to end. Our journey from the airport took 1 hour and 45 minutes. Upon our arrival at the hotel we were each presented with a beautiful garland of fresh flowers, a refreshing fruit drink and cold towels which... More

I have stayed at other Vivanta and Taj hotels around the world. I have often found them to be a little aged, but not Bentota. This is a wonderful hotel which surpassed all our expectations. From arrival we were welcomed by friendly and attentive staff and fresh juices. They sat and chatted with us as our check-in and luggage were... More

I didn't think I'd enjoy staying at such a big hotel, but Vivanta has changed my mind! The staff go out of their way to make your stay relaxing and absolutely hassle-free. The housekeeping staff are brilliant and the effort they go to with their towel origami is unforgettable. The food is lovely and the chefs go the extra mile... More

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
