Where to stay in Bentota

Most of the accommodations in Bentota lie close to the beach and the railroad track running parallel to the seashore. Luxury resorts spill out onto the beaches of the coast, while a few simpler, squat hotels sit alongside them, providing fewer facilities, but still right on the beach, and close to the main restaurants and bars of the town. Look inland for a few quieter options, including rental villas, eco-lodges, and guesthouses, hidden along the streets that wind through the rural areas.
