"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."

"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. "

"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"

"My family (wife, me and kids ages 2 and 6) stayed here several nights. We are architects and were visiting as many Bawa designed hotels as possible. The design is very nice and the furniture compliments. The literal next door hotel Villa Bentota is also a Bawa designed place and interesting to check out. Its interiors are a little overboard and compared i actually like this hotel better. I saw the other Bawa resort style hotels and was very glad to be here in this more intimate boutique style hotel. Those were filled with Russians and Chinese and while nicely designed were a bit too big and impersonal. The pool was perfect. And i will model mine at home based on this. It has a shallow end foor kids (age 6) and a 10" deep side spot for cooling down or for the 2 year old to sit and splash, is long enough for me to do laps. Wifi worked throughout decently enough for social media but not really well enough for skype. Food was good. Tea time a great touch at the pool. Room nice and spacious. Mosquito net on bed. Good AC. I checked out a bunch of different rooms and they are all very nicely designed and furnished and special. Each one a bit different. Really cannot go wrong. There is a train line that runs pretty much through the property between the pool/lawn and the very adjacent beach. The train (a short train of 5 cars piled with people) rumbles through about 6 times a day and is not a nuisance at all and actually pretty awesome and hilarious. I really felt like i was in a wes anderson movie. Its pretty surreal and great. The beach is truly stunning although when we went in July the waves were too big to swim. But a walk up the beach to the other Bawa resort hotels just north and a tuk tuk back is a beautiful. I think alot of people are here for just a night or two but i wish we had stayed longer. I could have easily stayed 3-4 days. Bentota is great. Brief Gardens (Bawa's brother) and Lunuganga (Bawa's retreat) are nearby. Turtle rescue fun. Saw a turtle hatch "

"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."

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.
