• Luxury Bentota Holidays
  • Overview

    This strip of shoreline in south-west Sri Lanka is a paradise of buttery soft sands and sparkling seas. Acclaimed as the best beach resort on this beguiling island, Bentota offers a combination of fine food, delightful views and excellent water sports. It’s a top spot for honeymooners.

    There are excellent facilities for jet-skiing, windsurfing, diving and parasailing as well as snorkelling and swimming. Those who prefer relaxation rather than activity can opt for a boat safari on the River Bentota, where a canopy of mangroves leads to a tranquil world of birds, bats and the occasional crocodile.

    There are plenty of opportunities for daytime excursions, with an historic Buddhist temple and charming gardens just a short journey from the heart of the resort. There is even a turtle hatchery and beach, where visitors can watch protected species such as Hawksbill, Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles make their way along the sands.
