Sanjeeva the General Manager looked after us well and the room we were allocated was very special. We were greeted with balloons and afternoon snacks in our room upon arrival...

Stayed here and loved it. Like most say the bathrooms need updating but are clean and the showers are great with loads of hot water. Food is varied and amazing. Service is very good from towels in the gardens to the room cleaning. The hotels charm is it is older and is not a sterile standard. Love the wood and...

Renowned designer Geoffrey Bawa brings an authentic touch of Sri Lankan architecture to this charming hotel. The hotel has the unique position of being placed between the Bentara and Indian Ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed the authenticity of Sri Lankan cuisine, which also offered a wide variety of different foods for the alternative palate. The hospitality of the staff was particularly...

I stayed here for two weeks whilst travelling round Sri Lanka. I agree with a few reviews saying the rooms are a little tired, we stayed in a superior room and it still needed a bit of a update however, the gardens are setting of the hotel are absolutely outstanding and completely made up for it. At the end of...

In the evening of 15th Mar 2017, I checked in a standard room but was offered for a free upgrade to a superior room. The room is old with many light switches (inefficient lighting system). Bathroom is super small. The shower box can barely fit me in (I am a 5"7' medium size Asian woman). The unpleasant surprise came near...

We stayed in Bentota Beach as a couple for one week at the end ob February 2017 and had wonderful time. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay as we were treated like family members rather than the first time visitors! We already miss the friendliness of the staff that can't do enough to please the guests....
