Lanka is a one-of-a-kind destination that has it all: inspiring cultural heritage, exquisite cuisine, natural wonders and World Heritage sites. Having so much to discover and explore makes it the perfect destination for families, so its important to choose a resort that is close to the attractions when you want to explore, whilst also providing extensive facilities for relaxing and unwinding in the resort when you need it.
Centara Ceysands Resort Sri Lanka is a family-oriented 4-star resort in Bentota, located beautifully with Bentota River on the one side and the Indian Ocean on the other.
The resort’s arrival lounge is situated at Aluthgama, on the inland side of the river, with guests travelling across the water by barge, a journey that takes no more than two minutes.
Great views can be enjoyed from every corner of the resort with most rooms overlooking the river and the unspoiled mangroves, or the ocean. The resort features a range of spacious accommodation options from 37 to 139 square metres in size, including suites and family residences that accommodate families of up to three adults and two children.
A colourful destination rich in history and culture, and home to some of the world’s most stunning beaches and World Heritage sites, Sri Lanka is one of the best kept treasures of South East Asia. Centara Ceysands allows you to experience the essence of Sri Lanka with plenty of excursions offered by the resort including diving trips, river safaris, mangrove tours, visits to the turtle sanctuary, swimming with blue whales, and visits to heritage sites – such as the UNESCO World Heritage listed Fort Galle.
There are also plenty of leisure activities offered by the resort. There are masses of water sports to choose from including snorkelling, canoeing, sailing and jet skiing, or you can just enjoy an afternoon by the resort’s large swimming pool (the biggest pool in Sri Lanka!) overlooking the beach.
Parents can enjoy some time in the spa while the kids are entertained in one of the resort’s two kids clubs or at the resort’s daily activities programme. Despite its apparent seclusion, the Bentota Peninsula is less than two hours by road from Colombo.
Under the resort’s Half Board Plus plan, the resort offers you a choice of lunch or dinner accompanied by a maximum 3 hour open bar with their meal from the time they arrive.
