One of the best hotels in the south coast of Sri Lanka. Easy access to the beach and lot of adventurous activities. Being a vegetarian, we found the cuisine pretty delightful! Pool location is also very nice. Highly recommended if you are travelling with family!

The Vivanta by Taj resort has a great location beside the lovely Bentota beach. The resort staff are outstanding - smiling and helpful. The food served in the buffet restaurant was excellent, a very good range of choices and different meals every day. We recommend this resort for a relaxing vacation.
