Old and outdated amenities
Stayed for 2 nights in August 2015. Shower knob came off to the hand on the first day. The washroom sink was clogged twice on both the days of my stay. You can hear noise from the next room guests as the walls seems to be thin. Hotel needs plenty of upgrade and sound proofing. Water in the room from the bathroom as well as in the swimming pool smells chlorine indicating overdosage of chlorine. On the positive side the hotel is facing the beach. Will not call this hotel a 4 star one.

Relaxing day

beach food outdoor activities
We went with our 6month old baby . Therefore we could not use many facilities like pool outdoor sports spa etc. we were welcomed warmly and they provided with a baby cot which came very useful . We took in room dinning which were quite tasteful and value for money. Overall pleasant stay at relaxing beach resort .

spacious triple rooms!

The room size is very good - we booked 2 triple rooms. Very clean. Nice bar room with live music - very relaxing. Really good value for money.
Very nice and relaxing. The out-door restaurant by the pool was slow service. But the total experience was very good.

Geoffrey Bawa's masterpiece

good locarion, nice atmosphere, elegant hotel
We reached Bentota by train from Colombo. The train ride itself was pleasant with continuous beautiful beach views. The short walking distance passed through the Frangipani trees with laterite road and subsequently entered the hotel lobby with beautiful batik ceiling and view to the water courtyard was so memorable. The hotel looked old but still elegant. A must stay hotel for anyone love Geoffrey Bawa architecture. Downside is the renovation of the hotel changed the original hotel character. Don't miss visiting Lunuganga garden!
