"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."

"Stayed at the Club Bentota Hotel for a friend of mine's wedding ceremony, and must say it was by far the best resort wedding I've been to. There was nothing fancy or luxurious about the Deluxe Room I stayed in, but it was kept tidy and very clean. didn't come with much toiletries except one small shampoo and soap, guess they make it a point to be one of those environmental-friendly hotels. didn't really have a problem with that since I had my own, but it felt a bit overpriced for a simple room with minimal equipment. Nonetheless, I very much enjoyed the facilities of the hotel like the swimming pool/beach chairs/beach volley ball court/tennis court/water ski snowboard/jet skis/ping-pong table/buffet restaurant/bar area/dance stage/etc/ would recommend it to friends and might look to return myself!

"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"

"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 "

"My family and I spent our holidays in this hotel in Bentota. Everything was excellent howe I can suggest some facilities to them, for example, they can apply some light from hotel to beach since when you back from the beach to your room you should pass 100 meters from a corridor of beautiful trees but it's dark. They help you to arrange your plan to visit Bentota and other places."

"while service in sri lanka is always lacking, the avani spa was better than most. the food was good (try the resturant, not the buffet) and the waiters did try to provide the best service possible. the rooms were clear and comfortable, all have a sea view. the massages are not as satisifying as in thailand or indo, but still relaxing and enjoyable. as with all places in sri lanka, it is over priced for what you get. still, to compare it to its local competition, i would say it is worth a stay. bentota is about an hour ourside of colombo, so it is a quick trip from town.

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.
