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. Feast on fresh seafood by the ocean or rich buffets at the main restaurant, and head to Tease Bar every evening for refreshing tropical drinks — any choice you make will be a delicious one. If you want to alternate between the sparkling pool and something a little more active, then there are activities and excursions available too.

Great Stay!

An excellent stay at the Taj bentota in Sri Lanka. First class experience from check in till check out. A special mention to Akram (Duty Manager) who spent two hours yesterday helping to resolve my issues with the airline. Akram, you are an asset to the Taj brand and they should be blessed to have someone like you representing them. Kind Regards, Sonia (Room 624)
