There were some positives about this hotel and the food was great as well. However the service of one particular chef ruined it all for us. I think his name was Charitha (dark tall guy) if i remember correct and it was absolutely disgusting how he treated us locals. When a friend of mine was waiting in the queue to... More

Having completed a tour of a Sri Lanka including four great hotels this was a disappointing end to our time there. The reception suggested we were in for a special two nights but we were wrong. The room was spacious enough but very tired. The bathroom was tatty with the shower enclosure glass opaque due to the lime scale/age and... More

Me and my boyfriend visited Sri Lanka in September for a months trip as we are lucky enough to have family over there. We did a split trip between the Bentota beach and Vivanta by Taj. We arrived after the flight feeling groggy to be greeted by the beautiful reception area which is wonderfully scented with cinnamon and had a... More

I spent 4 days and 3 nights in this inimitable property with my parents. It was star class in every way. The buffets were brilliant, and one of the highlights of this memorable vacation was when on Saturday night the lights went off and the chefs brought out a ginormous Baked Alaska as a surprise complete with fireworks! Every single... More

Bathrooms are very old and dirty. Linens and sheets are dark and with spots. Bedroom walls are moldy and marked with bloodstains from killed moskitoes. Rooms are quite noisy from train and neighbors on floor 7. The location is nice close to a nice beach but many hotels in Sri Lanka are on the beach. This hotel needs a MAJOR... More

Fantastic hotel, stunning room and great staff. We booked on agonda and made a huge saving too. The room was fantastic, staff welcoming and helpful and the food was great too. We didn't stay all inclusive but didn't need to, it was still great

A good solid tourist hotel right on the beach. Expansive lobby and all the facilties you would expect from a large hotel with watersports and a large swimming pool with vaste lawns and plenty of sunbeds for all. The beach the hotel backs onto is large and deserted! All public areas of the hotel were welcoming and served their purpose... More
