Vivanta by Taj - Bentota
Bentota,Bentota - View on map
"We had one of the best vacation at Vivanta by Taj earlier this week. Beautiful property , very good location , view from the rooms facing sea was awesome. Probably one of the best hotels in Bentota. Choice of restaurants but if you want to go out , you can walk to good local restaurants such as Golden Grill, Malli's and Amal . It would be good if Hotel can introduce some activities to make it more interesting for longer stay."

Heritance Ahungalla
Ahungalla,Bentota - View on map
"After 6 busy and interesting days in Sri Lanka, we couldn't find more beautiful hotel than Heritance Ahungalla. The room have been cleaned twice a day. At the reception desk works very capable staff whome are always available. If you ever stay in this hotel please ask for mr Dinusha Kularathne. He made for us surprise in the room (flowers for wife and fruit basket). He makes a great effort to accomplish any request we had. In general this is the best hotel we ever stayed in, don't skip it if you ever come in Sri Lanka. "

Ekho Surf
Bentota,Bentota - View on map
"Bentota beach is the location of a lot of luxury hotels in Sri Lanka. The beach itself is relatively quite. The Surf Hotel is unusual in the area in that it is very open at the front and all rooms have views of the sea from the balconies. Staff, food, quality of rooms are all excellent. Only thing some people might find annoying is occasional train that passes hotel which can be loud - many hotels in this area will have this to contend with as train line is very close to coast at this point - didn't bother us as air con tends to drown out the noise."

Whispering Palms Hotel
Induruwa,Bentota - View on map
"The hotel is brand new and boasts the most beautiful rooms with large comfortable beds, huge bathroom with rain shower, powder room for the ladies, and a large balcony looking directly over the ocean where one can enjoy a lovely sunset. Designed with a keen eye for detail by the European owners and managers, the Whispering Palms Hotel was a boutique hotel that ticked every box. The restaurant was amazing and offered a huge variety of exquisite meals to the quality that you would expect from any 5 star restaurant around the world. Not only was this ‘fine dining’ but they also offered breakfast ‘to order’ at any time of day – nothing we have ever seen before and an absolute delight to wake up when you want, and have a fresh cooked breakfast as opposed to a buffet. The hotel has a great bar looking past the pool and over the ocean, which was a great place to spend a lazy afternoon relaxing and sipping on some local cocktails! After living in Dubai for 8 years and travelling to many countries, it is rare to find a hotel that offers the quality of service, food and accommodation that we are used to, however we found that at the Whispering Palm Hotel. The staff were outstanding, very friendly and an absolute credit to the hotel - All in all one of the best hotel experiences we could have asked for and we would not even bother looking for another hotel next time we go to Sri Lanka.

Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa Sri Lanka
Bentota,Bentota - View on map
"Enjoyed our last night in Sri Lanka. After touring from Colombo, Sirigiya, Kandy, Galle and final destination Bentota. Our room boy Sugath was very thorough and made sure the room was clean and of a high standard. We had a riverview deluxe, so you could enjoy watching the water sports whilst relaxing on the balcony. Location couldn't be better. A quick boat trip across river and away from the hustler and bustle. We enjoyed the Mediterranean buffet dinner night. Price was 3000LKR per person, which I thought was reasonably priced. Everynight there is a different option, Sri Lankan, BBQ, Western, Asian etc.. There were 2 other restaurants for dinner as well, Thai or Al la carte. There are daily activities for everyone, if you want to participate. Didn't use the spa facilities, but the prices are higher than you would expect to pay in Australia or Indonesia. Pool area may seem overcrowded to some, but you'll expect that when it's so hot. Overall we would of loved to have stayed one more night"

Temple Tree Resort & Spa
Induruwa,Bentota - View on map
"We stayed here for three nights at the end of our two week trip around Sri Lanka. We got 58%off with Agoda. If we had paid full price we would have been slightly disappointed. The only thing this place is missing is a gym. The pool and beach right on your door step is picture perfect. Bentota is a quick and cheap Tuk Tuk drive away if you need anything from a store, otherwise there are only massage places and other resorts close by. This is perfect if you want to wake up, eat breakfast and relax by the pool/beach. You charge everything to your room so no cash is carried around. We ate every meal at the restaurant and were pleased with the selection and pricing - only a lil more expensive than other western restaurants in Sri Lanka. The staff were fantastic and even surprised us with a chocolate cake as a congratulations gift as we were celebrating our anniversary. I would stay here again without hesitation. It looked like the most modern and clean resort on this stretch sand "

Marina Bentota

"Very nice hotel with a very friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay, and if we come back to Sri Lanka we will definitely revisit. The only drawback is the dirt road out to the hotel and that it is a bit lonely. "

More about Bentota

Bentota is a small city located in the Galle District of Sri Lanka. The city is best accessed by bus from Colombo or Galle, as the nearest airport is over two hours away by car.

Bentota is a coastal city, and the main attraction is arguably Bentota Beach, which offers a beautiful and clean beach with a very clear and calm sea perfect for several days of swimming, diving, snorkeling, or just soaking up the sun. There are several hotels ranging from luxury beach resorts to modest guesthouses, located just steps from the sea.

The Bentota River Safari which goes along Bentota River and lagoon is a popular activity among visitors to this area. The safari takes visitors on a cruise along the river, where you get a chance to see reptiles and other creatures, or enjoy water sports such as jet skiing. Most hotels will help their guests arrange these tours and activities, and planning as early as possible is advised.

Bentota is home to beautiful botanical gardens and nature reserves, two of which were built by two highly respected landscape architects who also happened to be brothers. A few hours of walking among the beautiful landscaping of Brief Garden or Lunuganga would certainly be time well spent.
