Centara Ceysands Resort and Spa, Bentota
Situated between the Bentota River and the Indian Ocean, Centara Ceysands benefits from secluded luxury and a tranquil and calm environment. Enjoy the view across the rolling topaz waters from nearly anywhere on the resort. 165 rooms and suites are housed on the resort and all benefit from views over the calm, meandering river fringed by palm and mangrove trees, or of the never ending blue ocean. The Deluxe Ocean View Rooms feature an eclectic range of décor from earthy orange and red tones to the dark wood furniture and olive green and cream walls. A king size bed or two double beds look out of the sliding glass doors onto the private balcony, offering spectacular views of the turquoise waters below.
Dining at Centara is an experience not to be missed. Dine on a range of authentic Sri Lankan dishes and some international favourites as you watch the chefs expertly prepare your food on one of the live cooking stations. The 360 Restaurant lies at the southern end of the resort and showcases some of the best views of the Bentota River and the Indian Ocean. Serving a selection of freshly caught seafood and Asian cuisines, the restaurant will change the way you think about food, preparing the dishes in any way conceivable.
Why not indulge yourself with a massage at the SPA Cenvaree. The expert therapists can perform a range of treatments from Thai massages and holistic therapy to a bespoke spa journey derived from the ancient Sri Lankan traditions to leave you glowing with health. For the more active guests, the resort has a range of water sports available such as snorkelling, scuba diving, wakeboarding, jet skiing and rubber dinghy rafting.
