The Beauty of Bentota - Sri Lanka

Posted on 01 February 2017

Knowing what you want always makes your life easier. We always get those long weekend which we want to take advantage of and go somewhere nice and new. After searching around, I realized that Sri-Lanka is one of my good options since its only 4-5 hours away from Kuwait and it has some amazing beach resorts ( which I am looking for). 

I took a flight from Kuwait to Colombo, then driver picked us up from the airport and we head it to Taj Resort located in area called Bentota which is South Sri-Lanka . There are 2 roads that you can take, we took the express highway which takes 1-2 hours and there is also the town road which takes between 3 – 4 hours depending on traffic ( In both you will enjoy a nice view )


Once we arrived at the resort, they gave us those lovely floral necklaces along with a welcoming drink which I though was very nice. Followed by a smooth check-in to the room with great view.


The resort is huge and has several facilities which was perfect for us to just chill and never leave. it has Spa, Swimming pool with great view, Access to private beach, Surfing, Entertainment rooms, Restaurants ( International, Seafood, Italian), Lounge with some live music ( serving hookah and drinks),  outdoor area and garden, Gym and more things which you can check here )





Although we enjoyed our time at the resort but we also wanted to explore more things outside and see more of Srilanka. Here are some of the things we did during our stay that you could benefit from

  • Watching the sunset
