Bentota Beach Hotel is the perfect getaway if you are planning to unwind from the hectic monotony! Serene ambiance so close to the nature, opening to the beach, provides the best calming effect! The artistic and aesthetic interiors add to the delight of the whole experience! Happy Chillaxing!

Stopped here after flying into Sri Lanka for a night, staff were welcoming and chatted to the chefs about cricket. Didn't get to experience the different activities but felt safe and comfortable after a 3 hour drive experiencing Colombo traffic and quirks of Sri Lanka's drivers! Good selection of drinks available on the all inclusive and the only hotel I've... More

I was here with my wife in 2014, the Bawa magic is still there from the entrance to the pool. The food was delicious, great room service and we had a wonderful time. Rooms probably need a bit of refurbishment, but nevertheless, i would not hesitate to recommend this place to any one.

Really great resort. We felt like we had the place all to ourselves. Free morning yoga, amazing views, lush green grounds, great food, everything you could want. It was pricier than everywhere else we had been to in Sri Lanka, but still affordable by US standards. I skipped the buffet and saved money by ordering individual sandwiches at the bar.... More

We were at the hotel for a day out. Room was good and customer service was okay. Hotel space and the environment were perfect. There was a nice indoor garden with a large water area. That's unusual. I loved the area. Food was exceptional. We could arrange a boat trip.

We stayed at Bentota beach Hotel only for one night. We had a great time. The staff there was very friendly and extremely helpful. The life guard at the pool was one of the best we have seen so far, he rescued 3 guests who were almost drowning even though he had warned them earlier several times. We are looking... More
