Note: We were given a complimentary stay at this resort
Centara Ceysands, located in Sri Lanka’s popular Bentota Beach, is the ideal spot for a fun and relaxing family getaway. Located between Bentota River and the Indian Ocean you get the best of both worlds with tranquil river views and idyllic sandy shores. We boarded a short and picturesque boat ride over the river to access the beautiful resort and were instantly greeted with a traditional performance alongside their welcoming and incredible team. We loved the touches of Sri Lankan culture that welcomed our family giving us an amazing first experience in the stunning country. Our Family Suite was spacious and comfortable, perfect for those travelling with young children. Our children were excited about the bunk beds and we enjoyed pool and sunset views from two private balconies.
Centara Ceysands has a variety of five star facilities from a large and refreshing swimming pool, direct access to the stunning beach, a colourful and fun kids club, fully equipped gym, and five star spa. The resort concierge is always on hand to arrange tours to see more of the cultural and captivating country. Our kids loved the exciting and educational mangrove tour where we encountered a variety of wildlife.
The dining options are another huge highlight from the delicious all day dining buffet at Cafe Bem to mouthwatering authentic Thai fare at Suan Bua and an unforgettable Private Beach Dinner with a spectacular setting during sunset.
Each member of the team went out of their way to ensure our family felt right at home and we enjoyed the immersion in Sri Lankan culture alongside luxurious facilities and beautiful surroundings. A great option for families looking for a beach holiday in Sri Lanka.
