A Wonderful Stay At Taj Bentota Resort & Spa (Vivanta By Taj): Review

Oriental Pavilion

A Wonderful Stay At Taj Bentota Resort & Spa (Vivanta By Taj): Review

It’s the best place to dine when you’re craving Chinese cuisine. The dress code for this restaurant within the resort is smart casuals. The ambiance is intricately designed and the food adds more weight to the restaurant as a whole. Oriental Pavilion is only open for dinner and supper from 7 pm to 11 pm.

Far from fine dining, this is more like a lounge or a resto-bar with a glamorous ambiance. Serving exotic cocktails, the place is blaring with music and sure to leave you to foot tapping. The place is open all day from 11 am to 11 pm.  It is the best lounge is all of Bentota.

A Wonderful Stay At Taj Bentota Resort & Spa (Vivanta By Taj): Review

An absolutely gleeful and romantic place for dinner. An ideal way of eating dinner by the beach is in a shack by the beach. This facility of the resort is an absolute delight. The shacks are secluded to ensure the ultimate privacy of the guests. It is the best place for exotic seafood and is open only for dinner from 7 pm to 11 pm.

Safety & Security

Being part of the Taj group of hotels, the Taj Bentota Resort & Spa is under tremendous pressure to sustain the image and name of the hotel. Safety and security are at the top of their priority list to ensure no discomfort to their guests. Bookings are only made through authenticated agents and after checking the validity of the passport and other documents. The baggage is scanned and tagged with the guest’s name on it. For the safety of the belongings of the guests, there are lockers and safes in their rooms too. All passports and identification proofs are scanned and kept safe on the database of their computer. There is always a doctor on call for a kind of emergencies. Fire alarms are installed at strategic places too.

The main attraction of Bentota is its beach, which is just across the resort. The beaches are thriving with activities and pubs and water sports. The recommended sightseeing includes whale watching at Galle followed by indulging in retail therapy from the local shops at Galle. You can also visit the Galle fort and lighthouse to explore the remnants of the Dutch and Portuguese rule. The Kosgoda turtle hatchery can also be visited, it’s a safe place for turtles and makes them breed, you can interact with them by playing with them and feeding them.

Final Thoughts

Taj itself being such a big name in the hotel industry should make you comfortable. But other than that, the hotel is beaming with amenities and top-notch facilities with warm and welcoming staff. They leave no stone unturned in providing the most joyous stay to their guests. Along with such a big title, comes a responsibility to maintain that title, and the Taj Bentota Resort & Spa does complete justice to this responsibility.

I was invited by Srilanka Tourism Promotion Bureau on a FAM Trip but as always, all opinions are my own.
