Experience luxury in a picturesque setting

Nestled beside a fine beach, in a gorgeous tropical garden setting, Taj Bentota Resort & Spa is a vibrant yet relaxing resort where you can discover the best of Sri Lankan hospitality. From the ornate decorative features of its lobby, through to your room's designer bathroom, and the authentic Jiva Spa; the hotel oozes sophistication and contemporary luxury.

If you want to alternate between the sparkling pool and something a little more active, then there are activities and excursions available too.

It was a beautiful, peaceful visit. Some celebration, some wonderful time on the beach, and visit to Ashok Vatika.

Mumbai, India

The room was sea facing, with a beautiful view. It was spacious, neat and clean. It was well stocked. Service was good and prompt. Staff was professional, helpful and courteous. Since the beach could be approached from the hotel, one could just walk to the beach whenever you felt like.
