Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa

A modern and fun-filled hotel set on a gold-sand beach and backed by a meandering river.

This Centara resort offers a fresh and modern choice in this popular region of Sri Lanka. Set on a thin peninsula between the mangrove-fringed Bentota River and the beach, a host of facilities await you, and families are well catered for with both a kids’ and teens' club.

There is plenty of choice when it comes to dining at Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa. At the main restaurant Café Bem, Sri Lankan, Asian and international buffet dishes are served at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant also features an à la carte menu and a number of live cooking stations. At the casual 360 Restaurant, which is open each day for dinner, you can sample local seafood dishes which have been created with a Sri Lankan twist. Here you can enjoy either river or ocean views while you dine. Those feeling peckish between meals can head to the laid-back all day café, the Ceylon Club, and sample fine Sri Lankan teas as well as refreshing drinks and snacks.

Whichever room you opt for here, you'll either have a view of the resort's gardens, the river or the ocean. Set on the river side of the hotel are the simply-designed Superior Rooms, some of which have water views, while overlooking the resort’s grounds toward the sea are the Superior Oceanview Rooms and the slightly larger Deluxe Oceanview Rooms. Guests in the Exclusive Spa Deluxe Oceanview Rooms, which are only bookable through Kuoni in the UK, can enjoy a free one-hour massage or a body wrap (choice of a selection of treatments, please ask for details) on every second day of their holiday.
