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.

I have stayed at Taj Bentota with my family during Halloween break. Well maintained property and good facilities at the resort. Delightful culinary experience with lots of varieties to spoil you with choices.

Our experience with Taj Bentota was really beyond expectations. Food was very tasty and view from our room was speechless. I highly recommend this property it's really value for money. You will never miss tasty Indian food.

We are currently here on honeymoon and there have been building works nonstop. Building works around the pool including chainsaws, jackhammers, electric loud power tools. My wife is devastated. I spoke to the Manager 1 week ago (we are still here) who said the works would take 3 days and finish on the 30th. The workers are still there and are working their way around the pool. I spoke to them and they said they will be here at least another month!. So basically the Manager Praditya just lied to me. I went and spoke to him again this morning and he (as the Manager) claims the works might finish soon. This man should be fired in my opinion. I am normally pretty patient but this is enough. I would guess the works will be continuing in November and December so if you are booked to stay here I would find another hotel. I will never be staying here again and I advise other people not to. As an fyi this hotel is probably only a European 3 star level and a American 2 star level. If I was running the hotel I would have shut it down for a week, finished all the work and then reopened it, but it appears Hotel Management are just being greedy. On a positive note the staff are friendly and brilliant. Fire the Management and keep the staff.

We have really enjoyed our time in Taj Bentota. Helping and friendly staff, beautiful location and amazing food. Only thing it would be nice to sleep balcony door open but there was no flyscreen. Overall it was a beautiful hotel

I have a strong sense of loyalty to the Taj brand, having got married there in Kerala a week ago. I was expecting the same high standards but unfortunately the Taj at Bentota left a lot to be desired. The check-in process was slow and at 3pm I was told my room wasn't ready which was an inconvenience, however I was informed that they would provide complimentary lunch as an apology which was a nice touch. I booked a trip to Galle coating 7500 LKR which we thought included a guide but apparently this was just a transfer. This should be more transparent during the booking process. Breakfast is a mess, sigh me being told one morning that lattes etc are chargeable but then the next morning being told that are free. The ladies in sarees have colds and is very off-putting for the guest! Just stay at home or not be in the food service areas, disgusting. Hotel looks worn out with signs peeling off and dirty floors left for hours. Housekeeping doesnt do a thorough job. Lots of people such as restaurant manager walking around on the phone at breakfast time, other servers all chatting to one another. Pool also has a big wooden construction site around it. I would not recommend coming back here.

The Taj in Bentota has everything you can ask for from a sea side resort- plus some amazing hospitality! What was especially wonderful was how they maintained international standards while keeping everything local. Their art in the rooms is sourced locally, from a very talented young artist, Anjanan, who was also their exhibiting some of his paintings on one of the days we were there. They also offer a wide variety of choice both in their breakfast and à la carte menu, and their choice of Sri Lankan food is spectacular. We are vegetarians and usually get lean pickings when we travel, but we feasted like kings on this trip!!

Cozy and lovely hotel😍 Everything super🤩 service is great, the food is delicious, very comfortable and clean rooms. Special thanks to life guard Gimhan he helped us. 🌊🌊🌊🏊🏻‍♂️ Thank you Tan Bentota for magic days.

Fantastic...Fantabulas...Superb...Xclnt & many more.Awesome people,food,service & the hotel. Must stay if you are in Bentota.What a grand view of the pool & the sea from the room we stayed. Take care & best wishes.

Taj never fails to amaze us! We are treated like it is our own home. Utmost care is taken to ensure our stay is memorable and pleasant! Since it was my birthday, we got upgraded to a better room with sea view, all the staff wished me and were super accommodating to all our needs. Lastly, we had to leave for the airport at 6am, we had a breakfast hamper packed and ready for us to eat during our car ride! :) just fabulous! Would recommend this place and will definitely come back again!
