Awful Experience in Taj Bentota
Had planned a break for 2 days to Bentota, had visited it about 15 years back when it was Taj Exotica so was looking to make kids experience a beautiful beach resort. Guess with them changing it to Vivanta the services have also gone down. The day we landed i decided to go to the spa for a massage. The lady guided me to the womens changing room and told me that i can shower before my massage. As i was changing to my horror a man walked in with the towels. I told the spa manager and expected the hotel manager to get back with me about it but there was no response. We cut our trip to one day and decided to eat in the hotel. That night my daughter got acute food poisoning and had a terrible night . when we were leaving i informed the duty manager and told them that we were going to be moving to Taj Samudra and i would def like to speak to them about this terrible experience. Sadly , the Manager did not bother to even get in touch with me. Its shameful how the standard has fallen. This is def the last time we are visiting Sri Lanka .

Amazing resort
The place was fantastic! The beach is empy, you have it for yourself practically. The staff was so so nice and the price is very reasonable. Food by the beach was just fantastic. Would do great for honeymoon to stay here! Also booked whale watching and that was very nice as well. Would come back, have nothing negative to say about this place.

Average, not 5 star standard
Location, bteakfast
Room was dated, not worth the cost or upto 5str standards. Staff is ok, sometimes couteous, other times couldn't care less. At checknout, didn't even bother to ask if stay was ok. When I asked for receipt, was curtly told rate was contracted, can't give you amy thing. Could use basic training. Apart from breakfast, resturants food is poor .
