Taj Bentota is a level 1 hotel (quarantine hotel)in Sri Lanka, where we spent two weeks comfortably. The room which we got was very comfortable and full of energy. Indian Ocean could be seen from our room and we were allowed to spend some time near the beach. We were required to exercise all precautionary measures. So most of the time we were going to the beach at around 5 p.m to witness the sunset. Concerning the food of the hotel..that was really super tasty. There was an open buffet and on top of that the waiters..the manager and even the cook were coming time and again to ask us whether we enjoyed the food. They were even taking some extra orders from us . There is a gym where we were going each day. Overall our stay was very amazing.
A quarantine soaked in Tajness
I travelled to Sri Lanka on 20 March 2021 for safe tourism and in adherence to the country’s regulations at that time, I had to spend two weeks under quarantine. For this purpose, I opted for Taj Bentota Resort & Spa. Located along the eastern coast of the island, Taj Bentota Resort & Spa is a home away from home. The hotel seems ancient but is exquisite. With a diverse range of facilities, including gymnasium and pool, one can never be bored in Taj. The view of the ocean from the hotel is stunning. Even from the room, I could hear the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. The hotel’s employees demonstrated high level of professionalism and customer service. I am grateful to Mr. Lalith Tharupathi, Mr. Bimal Dusantha, Mr. Manjula Silva, Mr. Uvindo Iroshan and Mr. Afham Hassan for their attention and extraordinary service. I have no hesitation in recommending Taj Bentota Report & Spa.
The staff makes this place
I really enjoyed my time at Taj and that is due to the staff. Chef Manjula is a gem. He really made me feel welcome and his Sri Lankan food was the best I had in Sri Lanka. I also appreciated the restaurant and bar staff including Sisil, Lakmal and Ruwan. The manager of the Palms restaurant was really nice as well, I forgot his name. Their hospitality and the genuine interest they showed in their guests really stood out to me. The location and property itself is very nice although the rooms could use some updates and more conveniences. I enjoyed the large beach which was very secluded. I do agree with others that this is not a five star resort but I think it was worth the money spent, especially because of the staff. One thing to note, most guests did not follow masking rules. Fortunately most of the buffet was served outside and under covered glass but I found it very disrespectful to the staff and other guests at the resort.
14 days of heaven!
I stayed at Taj Bentota for 14 days and had a spectacular time! The stay could not have been better, great service and hospitality by Chef Manjula, Chef Kamal, Sam and everyone else in the staff. The food was very good and the chefs made sure our vegetarian needs were met at all times. They had some cool activities such as yoga, kite flying, fish feeding, magic show etc. to keep the guests engaged during the 14 days period. Special thanks to the GM Mr. Ranjit for doing such an amazing job managing the property, especially during these times! We will be visiting again soon :)
