Stayed here for one week while in Bentota! One of my favourite hotels i have ever stayed. Beautiful location and super relaxing. Staff are very accomodating, with the hotel providing extra special touches, free ice creams around the pool, free yoga sessions, free DVD for you room to watch! Great stay thank you

This is a lovely property on Bentota beach. The pool is really good , service was excellent ( Taj service is consistently brilliant).we had 2 dinners there , but found the food average , the "barbeque" was all fried meats . Our next hotel was Jetwing at negombo and the food here wasn't as good. The Breakfast was fantastic though.

The property is beautiful. Loved it! The rooms are clean. The Pool is nice with a very beautiful view, the private beach is perfect for a walk, with hardly any one, making it isolated, the Tease bar has an amazing experience with live music!
