Bunk down in a bold, sunny room at this Indian Ocean resort on Sri Lanka’s southwest coast. Colorful turquoise accent walls and bright orange linens complement the resort’s earthy beach scene, while intricately carved headboards add a dash of local charm. Upgrade to an Allure, Temptation or Presidential Suite for a walk-in closet, rainfall shower, and Forest Essentials ayurvedic toiletries. Poolside meals at the Palms include sprawling buffets that mix Western and Sri Lankan specialties, or you can opt for the Sri Lankan lunch platter, a mix of red rice, chicken curry, tempered radish, ambarella chutney, beans in coconut milk, and spicy coconut. Elevate evening dining at SHACK, an open-air seafood spot overlooking the ocean, and retire to Tease for a nightcap — a shot of Sri Lankan Coconut Arrack should do the trick.
In the Area
When you’ve tired of sunbathing on this prime stretch of Bentota Beach, ask the concierge to book a boat ride in the nearby mangrove backwaters or set up a visit to the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery. A local family started the conservation project in 1988, and it protects five species of endangered turtle. Spend the evening on a champagne cruise down the Madu River, or arrange for a private dinner in a beach gazebo.
How to Get There
Beautiful five star hotel in bentota. Check in was very pleasant and rooms has all the luxuries. Nice little pool.very close to the soft sandy beach. Amazing sea view from the balcony. Friendly staff and always smiling like true srilankans.food has the variety and delicious. I will visit the place again.
The room was sea facing, with a beautiful view. It was spacious, neat and clean. It was well stocked. Service was good and prompt. Staff was professional, helpful and courteous.
Since the beach could be approached from the hotel, one could just walk to the beach whenever you felt like.
I have stayed at Taj Bentota with my family during Halloween break. Well maintained property and good facilities at the resort. Delightful culinary experience with lots of varieties to spoil you with choices.
