Very bad reflection on the Taj name
Very disappointed by this Taj hotel. The condition of the hotel is quite bad and our room had some kind of roach infestation. Two days were completely ruined by the terrible service we received by the staff about the infestation, even after emailing the hotel and Taj Inner circle. We were quite happy about leaving the hotel and shocked by the state of the hotel, being a Taj property. The location on the beach is stunning though. The spa is fantastic but had a bad experience while billing about our spa charges as well. The manager/head chef came over and apologized twice but there is no point of apologies if nothing is done to rectify the issues.

Sam at the restaurant was the differentiator
I can simply say our stay was memorable with the excellent service given by Sam at the restaurant. His level of empathy and active listening skills was remarkable. He will be a good value driver as he recommends good upscale techniques for the hotel. He made the difference to us of the service offered by taj. Overall staff friendliness and staff motivation was noteworthy. Never seen such motivated staff in all departments. Loved the pool, the view from the pool, rooms looked beautiful and the views from the rooms was excellent for a beach hotel in the southern coast.

Taj Bentota : We love you
Taj.... The ultimate destination to get yourself pampered. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one at Taj who helped me plan out a surprise birthday celebration for my husband's 30th. From upgrading us for free to the ocean view rooms, to arranging a special eggless dark chocolate and grated Cocunut cake and playing the birthday song on saxophone and giving us a complimentary drink. Thankyou for pampering us with all royalty and making us feel so special. Just a question, why is #tajbentota not on Instagram?

Overrated!!!
Other than the property, there is nothing good about this hotel. They provide only 2 free bottles of drinking water each day & charge extra for additional water.... "thats ridiculous". - After paying INR 17000 per night... you charge for drinking water...SHAME ON YOU ! I had asked for squeezed lime juice, the hotel says... if we cut & give u the lemon its free but if you want the lemon squeezed its chargeable... I COUND'NT BELIEVE MY EARS... Service is bad, no consideration at all.. they upfront say NO. Its an over-rated hotel. Shall never again consider a stay here !.

Restaurant Mngr service @Taj Bentota was a shame!
Beautiful property!Stay was great. The staff at the reception , poolside,spa services ,housekeeping were all extremely helpful and courteous. The restaurant manager though needs a thorough training on managing guest relations and treating them.The guy was super rude with most guests.Even if it was him just having a bad day it's probably worth mentioning for feedback.unfortunately cannot remember his name.you could look it up by our stay dates perhaps .it was the morning breakfast shifts that he was working.
