Thank you for your query. We are part of the Indian Hotels Company Ltd - the Taj Group of Hotels which is headquartered in India and has hotels across the world as well. We are a 8 acre beach resort at a very lovely location, nestled in the Bentota village in Sri Lanka. The beaches in Sri Lanka are all public. From the hotel, one can walk out to the beach and to the ocean. Many rooms have the ocean view. We have 4 restaurants and a bar at the hotel. 3 restaurants open for dinner only. The hotel also has the signature Taj Spa - called the Jiva Spa. We also have a lovely swimming pool and a fitness centre in the hotel. Hope this information helps.

Thank you for your query. Bentota is 1km away from a local town called Aluthgama. Colombo city is two hours away and Galle, which is a bigger township than Aluthgama is 1 hour away. Transport is available from Bentota to all these destinations. Hope this helps.
