I had a very huge expectation during my stay - resort being managed by Taj group. But hugely disappointed. 1. Unhygienic rooms- cockroaches are common sites in room and bathroom when lights off. 2. Free experience of mosquito bites- in restaurant. 3. During lunch/ dinner- staff behaviour is big issue. Few guys might redirect you to counter incase you requested something on your table. 3. Very least option for vegetarians- when I raised this point- i got a surprising response- “ Sir a lot of food gets wasted so we’ve kept limited option”. Really? Guess you lack knowledge to manage a 5 start restaurant. 4. Torn towels- is it a 5 start property?? I have only experienced this during my stay in a substandard 3 start hotel ls. Property management should be embarrassed. 4. Front office- inexperienced guys keep calling supervisor for every silly question. 5. Any uncomfortable questions to them and they’re well trained to answer you back “This is our policy agreed by senior management and you may chose to feedback them”.

Hope things settle down and our guests get to travel soon. Until then wish you and your family best of health, please stay safe and look forward to welcoming you back!

We love Taj. And the Taj Bentota is a wonderful place with an amazing beach. We came there during pandemic times, so probably the experience was very different from normal times. The asset of the Taj Hotel group are their staff. Their staff are amazing and also make up for any potential other little shortfalls. If the hotel proclaimed itself as 4 star, disappointment would be avoided. Would we go there again? YES!

I am extremely happy to choose Taj over other hotels as the kind the service we got here was un-matched. The staff was polite and courteous. Food menu was quite vast and being a Veggie, we got quite delicious options at all times .

Our first holiday after such a long time. And we enjoyed every single moment! It was great to have live musik and DJ at the bar in the evening and a little opportunity to shop. All the staff was friendly and attentive and caring but we would especially like to mention Disa from the restaurant, Damith from Housekeeping, Ishan from the pool and Cecil from the Shack. Thanks to everyone for giving us such a good time! Andrea and Chris from Berlin/Germany

My brother and his girlfriend stayed in April. Hotel was beautiful and staff was very helpful. Moreover it was special trip for them as my brother was preparing proposal there. But it was spoiled by Sales/FB team. I asked for special offer to organize it, if hotel had any packages and options to make it happened. I wrote 3 emails(didn’t get even automatic reply!), wrote in Instagram and Facebook due to trip was in few days. Got answer which made me really very upset and confused .... hotel wasn’t ready to assist with anything just sent me letter even without greetings just sending beach menu dinner, no follow up.... As a sales executive in hotel as well for me it was surprise, guest was willing to pay but nothing was offered.... However no any complaints from brother about room, food, facilities etc.
