This is a really beautiful hotel which we have visited once or twice a year since 2000 - we love it. Everything is perfect - the General Manager Mr Mathew and his staff do everything to make your stay wonderful. The sandy beach is just lovely and peaceful - we walk along it every morning and always enjoy every moment.... More

For two days I was unable to get two deckchairs poolside... The clientele includes a lot of pensioners who get their spots early morning &... More

Frankly, there is nothing much to see in Bentota, but you don't feel the need to go out of the resort. There are lot... More

It was very nice of them to have recognised that on the day of arrival it was the birthday of our daughter. They sent a... More

At the time of booking we were not told that full board included only one restaurant (buffet). We would have liked to know that. If we want to use the other restaurants there were no discounts for...

Great Indian Food. Great Beach. Ideal for families. Hotel has a great sea view. It was raining in during Mid December. Great place to do Yoga by the beach. The hotel has a yoga instructor who conducts early morning classes by the beach/pool.
