Centara Ceysands is a beautiful hotel which I was pleasantly surprised by. Modern rooms, gorgeous pool, calming riverside views, delectable dinner buffet service and luxurious amenities - All the plus factors. To add a bit of negativity to the mix, I wasn't impressed with the staff at the reception, staff seemed disinterested and whilst waiting to be checked in, I... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 10 night stay at Centara and were very impressed with the whole experience. We went on a b&b basis which I think offers the best value if you are a little adventurous and like to try different restaurants around Kalutara and Bentota. The room we had was as described in the... More

The management as a whole is a fail in this hotel. There is definitely a problem with their operation. We simply weren't given the rooms we were promised after spending a really long time at the check in desk. Having arrived from a 9-hour-trip, we decided to look beyond the issue for the first night, as we were insanely tired.... More
