This was the best office hangout we ever went on! Location was perfect.. It's completely away from the main-land and that 5 mins ride from boat makes you feel like you are on vacation and no-one going to disturb you, even before you step into the hotel! Entrance is beautiful and the staff were very welcoming and warm-feeling... loved it!... More

Club Bentota Feb 2015 for 2 weeks was a great holiday. Staff are great especially the bar team and the hotel itself is set in a great location. The new Manager is making changes to the hotel and is ironing out the very few issues like what can be bought in the shop for example and she is getting free... More

Bit of a delayed review but stayed at club bentota for our honeymoon in May 2014. The hotel was is set in the most surreal of areas and from the moment you load the boat with the suitcases, the short trip over to mainland was breathtaking... We haven't experienced anything like it. The hotel is often termed 'rustic' by some... More

Spent two very enjoyable and relaxing weeks at Club Bentota. Beautifully designed hotel (Geoffrey Bawa) Lovely wooden and brick structure, beautiful and well kept garden and wonderful beach, all very clean. We had elected to take full board and were delighted with the diversity of food, asian as well as a good selection of western food. Unfortunately the wine, included... More

We spent two weeks here following a 7 day tour with a car and driver which was excellent The hotel far exceeded our expectations, we knew it was not going to be 5 star luxury but we loved the relaxed atmosphere and the ambience. The room was very comfortable, probably could do with being refurbished but kept spotlessly clean by... More

Overall very happy with holiday - our first time to Sri Lanka and we couldn't pick a better spot. The location of this hotel is great - the proximity to nature is breathtaking. So very unlike to the typical concrete all inclusives in mediterranean. Food is of good taste and variety, however few "all spicy" days occurred - but still,... More

Our first visit to Sri Lanka, and we absolutely loved it! The culture, people, weather, range of activities and hotel were all spot on. Having spent two nights in Dubai on the way, Club Bentota was never going to compete with the five-star offering experienced en route. That said, for a three star resort, Club Bentota had it all and... More

Beautiful location giving access to the river as well as the beach. The rooms need refurbishment but they were cozy and had all the amenities. The staff was polite, well-trained, always smiling and ever-willing to help. There was an ample supply of food. The menu has a wide variety of food items and all were equally good and delicious. There... More

Hotel is perfectly located in between the lake and sea where they take you in a boat across the lake to the the hotel location near the beach. Excellent facilities at the hotel. Rooms were clean and neat. But the rooms and the hotel looks a bit torn out. Nothing much bad though. Could Manage. Lunch Buffet spread was very... More
