The main attraction of this hotel is the location where you can access the beach and Bentota river. Pool is very spacious and the room was clean. The buffet spread was okay with international to Sri Lankan cuisines. Great hotel for water sports and relaxation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the Bentota peninsula, the four-star Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa Sri Lanka enjoys a superb location with the Bentota River on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other, and is accessed by a short boat ride across the lagoon. Designed to reflect the setting of the resort, the spacious rooms and suites (between 38 and 139 square metres of total living space) feature a balcony or terrace looking out across the peaceful river with its palm trees and mangroves or over the blue ocean. Truly a family destination in concept, the resort also offers a choice of family-friend accommodation options including Family Residences with bunk beds in a separate children’s area. The resort offers an abundance of natural attractions along with a huge, palm-fringed swimming pool with Jacuzzi, a wealth of water sports including g canoeing, sailing, wakeboarding, knee-boarding, and jet skiing, two kids clubs, and a wonderful spa inspired by Thai and Ayurvedic wellbeing heritage. Riverside dining is one of the highlights of the resort which is also home to an authentic Thai restaurant and three bars. Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the resort. ... more   less
