I travelled with my family. The welcome on arrival was warm with an infused tea cocktail and cold towels. All we needed to know was explained professionally. The room was well equipped. Tea making facility, coffee machine, mini bar and water. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones I’ve slept in. The food in the main dining area from breakfast to dinner was absolutely fantastic. The variety, taste and presentation was five stars. The main bar had great cocktails and a soothing atmosphere. We enjoyed all our evenings in here with Earnest and his team of friendly bar staff. The service at the pool was great. You get a basket of towels and water for the family. The play area has a pool table, fooseball, air hockey and many activities with a dedicated team. There is a well equipped water sports Centre. We did a boat trip in to the mangroves with a competent naturalist named Sampath which was educational and enjoyable. Overall it was an absolutely amazing experience. Thank you Mr. Dilan Bandara and team. We will be back in February.

From checking-in to checking-out, from a traditional Sri Lankan welcoming to a farewell, the experience we had was amazing. Even as a Sri Lankan, I've never experienced this much of hospitality until the hospitality that were given by the staff of Cinnamon Bentota Beach. The view and the environment around was one of a kind. The food was not limited to single varieties but ranged from authentic Sri Lankan cuisine to various international cuisines. Overall an excellent and a wonderful experience.

This resort has the best staff, It is beyond words, the kind of hospitality you would experience here. We visited this place with family & it was truly a lovely stay. RUVINI is a person who you can count on anything. She goes beyond and makes your stay as comfortable as possible. The welcome was unthinkable and the room was very clean & cosy even housekeeping service was upto the mark. The food was incredible & service in the kitchen was outstanding. Indian chef SUNNY was just amazing, he put cheery on the top, he took very good care of us and serve delicious Indian food for us. He specially made aloo-paratha just for us. Everyone must try if looking for Indian food in bentota, Every staff at the resort are welcoming. We were mesmerized by our experience. our madu river safari boat experience was really good too, Would recommend the other activities also, talk to Ruvini and his staff for knowing more.
