My family and I enjoyed staying at Vivanta by Taj at Bentota. Nice clean and big sea view room with balcony. Facilities like swimming pool, Indoor & Outdoor games and excellent food with plenty of options made our stay there recently a memorable and scintillating experience.

We were lucky enough to be upgraded but this was subject to having a twin room rather than the double that we had requested. Although our room was not large it was well appointed...

Hotel reminds us business style hotels due to the size of the room, a very small bathroom with absolutely no privacy and the walls are so thin that we could hear our neighbors talking. It's obvious that hotel is trying to save money on a lot of things : bathrobe quality less than kitchen towel, very small size for towels,...
