On the Bentota peninsula, the Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa Sri Lanka enjoys a superb location with the Bentota River on one side and the Indian Ocean on the other, and is accessed by a short boat ride across the lagoon. The rooms and suites (38-139 sqm. of total living space) feature a balcony or terrace looking out across the peaceful river or over the blue ocean. Truly a family destination in concept, the resort also offers a choice of family-friend accommodation options including Family Residences with bunk beds in a separate children’s area. The resort offers an abundance of natural attractions along with a huge, palm-fringed swimming pool with Jacuzzi, a wealth of water sports including canoeing, sailing, wakeboarding, knee-boarding, and jet skiing, two kids clubs, and a wonderful spa inspired by Thai and Ayurvedic wellbeing heritage. Riverside dining is one of the highlights of the resort which is also home to an authentic Thai restaurant and two bars. Wi-Fi is complimentary.

There are a number of very good things about this resort although sadly, our general experience at Centara Ceysands was not as good as hoped. The resort is nicely located between a river and beach. The beach is absolutely stunning and we enjoyed walks up and down the sea

Dear Lady, yes, can. Taxis will drop you off at river side. But you may come the beach road via tuk tuk or by bike, if you like.

Dear Michael, we would love to say every day in your holiday will be best weather. But weather these days is very unpredictable. Temp is always around 29 C. And it depends as well on the weather and your swimming skills, if you want, but the temp of the water is very nice. Hope to see you here.

Good Morning, How much would transportation from Colombo airport be please?
Agree with Above - it cost us $40 which we negotiated at the airport - but they will try and charge more - we had researched before hand so knew that it shouldn’t be much more

Hi LesnJan, the prices for local alcohol and imported liquors really depends on how much and what you order.... Similar for the evening meal. If you order a la carte, it starts from USD 5 to a lagoon crab for 4 pax for 200 USD. It depends. I would not recommend any trips who are not insured. Please consider it, before you book. The saying, you get, what you pay for, it there important.
