My wife and I, along with my parents, traveled through Sri Lanka for 10 nights. Our final part of our travels saw us spend 3 nights at Vivanta By Taj, Bentota. The only regret that I have is that we only spent 3 nights at this fantastic hotel. It was the best hotel experience I have received in a long... More

This was the last stop on our Sri Lankan honeymoon tour and it was the perfect end. The staff could not have been more wonderful-they even gave my husband a small present for his birthday and drew him a special picture on the bed. The food was wonderful-a different variety every night. We also ate in a couple of the... More

Among the hotels I tried, Taj was outstanding, building is grerat. My only comment (which is common all over Sri Lanka) is that the hotel security system doesn't allow visitors inside the room! I found it inconvenient in this regard, as everytime I need to see my friends will have to go out.

Vivanta by Taj is a big hotel which offers high level of rooms and lovely nature around. I would definitely recommend to take a sea view room to enjoy the ocean. We had a Deluxe Delight Sea View room - it is spacious and the view is magnificent. We were met very friendly with flower necklace and complimentary wine. The... More
