We had an amazing time at Taj in Bentota, our little one in particular was spoilt by the staff who all went out of their way to ensure he had the best time. We enjoyed all the facilities especially the pool and the spa. Food choices at the Taj are great, there is plenty of choice and the quality is exceptional, who doesnt love a dosa for breakfast?! The main Palms restaurant caters for all and has a great range of options, we also tried the Chinese restaurant one of the evenings and again the choices and food were great. The beach is clean and just perfect for sunset views and for kids to play and build sandcastles. My husband and myself enjoyed some spa time too, the treatments were nice and again the staff were great. Definitely come back to the Taj and back to Bentota, we had a great little family holiday and it was made perfect by the Taj and its amazing team!
