We spent the last weekend at ekho surf benthota with 3 other families and all I could say is that we enjoyed every single minute over there. Rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. The hotel is overlooking the beach and it is amazing. Staff is extremely nice and helpful. They went out of their way to full fill our needs as we were with kids. And they are very hard working. The lunch, dinner and breakfast buffet was great. The food was delicious. I would like to thank all the staff for their amazing hospitality and would definitely visit the hotel again.

I had a wonderful time staying at the Bentota Surf Beach resort, the property is of pristine standards, one of the best value for money properties in Sri Lanka. I had visited them during my Sri Lanka travel in the first week of Dec 2021, where me and 4 of my other friends had leisure stay at their property for 3 nights, I must say staffs at Bentota surf are very courteous and polite to all our requests. I should call out couple of them namely Vignesh (Pool side helper), and Mr. Kanchan, who even at his elderly age was very active and always there to help his guests at any time with a big smile on his face, until my stay at the property I have never seen him without that smile. Overall, I will say my memories at Bentota Surf will stay for long time, and I would strongly recommend others to also visit and experience their hospitality and their amazing sea view rooms of the beautiful Bentota Beach, I for one would visit again if provided with an chance!

We stayed at the surf hotel for 2 nights during our vacation in Sri Lanka. The property is spacious and well maintained with 2 pools and the perfect view of the beach. The best part about the hotel is their proximity to the beach and their courteous staff , special mention for Kanchana and Nishanta who made the effort to make our stay more than comfortable . We highly recommend to stay here to avail their service which is top notch !

This hotel team has solution of all the problems. We were vegetarians and they specially told the Chef to make vegetable dishes for us at night before going at his place. We also had the best swimming pool experience. A special thanks to Kumudu, Kanchana, chef and other members of the hotel.
