There is no longer any planes to Bentota.

Weather in August is usually mostly sunny with some afternoon/evening showers.

thanks.

do you know how much car transfer from international airport in colombo costs to bentota for 3 persons(2 adults-1 child)?

do you have any experience with taj exotica hotel in bemtota or taj hotel in sri lanka?

are there any excursions we can do with our son in the around area so not to get bored all day long by the pool?

and the final and very usual question...is it safe to travel in sri lanka?

hnks in advance.

Yes, it's safe to travel in Sri Lanka.

Hotel itself is still great, as it was some years back when we stayed there. See

The hotel went through a big refurbishment last year. The rooms are much better now. Food is OK. There are plenty of better dinning options in Bentota.

Hi there,

It's about 3 hours to Bentota, or 20 mins to Negombo for first a night rest. It's up to you what you prefer.

All the best,

Negombo is more convenient for the airport and a better value for money than Colombo.

You could walk across the river to Aluthgama.
