    This hotel is in a great location and the staff are first class , the rooms are a little tired especially the bathroooms not sure if there is a plan to renovate . We would however not hesitate to recommend this hotel to fellow travellers

    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.

    Which I stayed longer ”

    The location is perfect, the views are breath taking and the food us to die for

    We only staied one night and two days but we will certainly comeback to tahe advantage of all that is on offer. We loved the pool with stunning views of the ocean, the food at this setting was just the perfect combination. The litle bay created just at the bottom makes it the perfect alternative for some ocean bathing. We loved it.

    Beautiful Beach Resort”

    Location at Beach, Choice of Restaurants, Swimming Pool

    Overall, amazing beach resort, can spend few days soaking in pool or enjoying the beach. Right on the beach, nice gardens, beautiful pool, amazing view of sea from pool, choice of different restaurants, chinese, sea food, intnational menu, buffet, etc. Great front desk and bar staffs. Could see few opportunities :: bed/pillow not so comfortable as expected in such resorts, Palm restaurant staffs need some grooming on customer service. Staff seemed in-experienced.

    We picked the Taj because we wanted something special for our anniversary. The hotel design and layout is beautiful, the rooms are nice with great sea view but the best thing of all was the staff. From the check in to check out were were wowed.

    Wonderful Sri Lankan hospitality. ”

    From the moment we entered the doors and had garlands placed on us, to the moment we left the hotel with our luggage, we were shown nothing but courtesy and politeness by the wonderful staff at the Taj Bentota. We were also given a cake for our wedding anniversary which we celebrated at the hotel and the staff could not do enough for us. Thanks guys we are coming back for sure.

    EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE MADE OUR STAY VERY COMFORTABLE”

    MY HUSBAND AND I VISITED THIS PROPERTY FOR THE 1ST TIME. WE FOUND THE PLACE TO BE VERY COMFORTABLE AND RELAXING. OUR ROOM BATHROOM NEEDS TO BE UPDATED AND THE ROOM ITSELF NEEDS UPDATING HOWEVER ROOMS ARE LARGE, AIRY AND CLEAN. THE SERVICE PROVIDED BY THE STAFF IS EXCEPTIONAL AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SPECIALY MENTION MS. NILUSHA WHO WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO SEE THAT WE WERE MADE COMFORTABLE. THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS AND VARIED ACROSS ALL THE DAYS WE WERE THERE. HERE AGAIN THE STAFF WERE VERY COURTEOUS AND EVEN MADE SPECIAL OFF-MENU ITEMS FOR US. WE WILL DEFINITELY RECCOMEND THIS HOTEL AND WE WILL VISIT AGAIN!

    A good stay although I became ill after the second night I feel from the airconditioning in the room, the room also smelt very musty when AC turned off. The staff make this hotel a lovely place to stay.

    Awesome experience”

    Great Location with sea view room, attentive staff giving a great overall experience

    Location and the sea view rooms were the biggest appeal. Taj always have the most attentive and very accommodating staff. In particular, their Front office manager was helpful. Complete R&R hotel. There is an activity room to keep the young ones busy if they haven't fully tired themselves using the pool or spending time at the beach. We arranged a lunch spread at our room as we were 4 families which was excellent.

    overpriced with a very 4 star feel”

    proximity to the beach

    Pleasant stay but very little to do apart from pool/beach. I was hoping to exercise in the gym however the machines were dated, some out of order and no cross-trainer. We saw a small cockroach in the bathroom which wasnt very pleasant or what you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Food was ok, nothing exceptional and desserts were particularly poor.

    The perfect beach vacation. Luxurious”

    The beach. Breakfast. Attentive and friendly staff

    We had a lovely time. Our initial booking was for one night but we extended our stay. Our 20-month-old teething son had a blast! We had easy access to the beach and the breakfast and dinner buffets were lovely. A few more options on the a-la-carte kids menu would have come in handy. The front office staff was exceptional - very efficient and smooth check in and check out. Special mention must also be made about restaurant staff who were extremely accommodating with our toddler who loves eating by himself. Our attempts to pick up after him were always interrupted by willing staff members. This truly gave is the break we needed! A very big thank you to everyone at Vivanta Bentota for giving us a fantastic vacation! We will definitely visit this hotel

    Amazing clean roon, amazing service and nice view by beach.

    Stay was very comforatable, Few things I like to get improved in TAJ is: 1. Please don't charge internet. This is a basic need now a days and not a luxary to be charged for. 2. Improve food. 3. and please intimate customers that hotel is under rennovation and guest should be informed. I feel real bad when I couldn't use swimming pool and other facility.
