4 June 2013 by Luke McCormick

Vivanta by Taj - Bentota, Sri Lanka has announced the completion of an extensive £8 million renovation.

The resort now has a new look in all its public areas, lobby, bar, all-day dining restaurant, banquet hall, lobby lounge and pool area together with the renovation of its rooms.

Located on Sri Lanka's south west coast, the resort's new design by Nic Proud is a blend of contemporary style with colonial charm.

"With its unparalleled natural surroundings, Sri Lanka has become one of the world's most coveted destinations. The recent investment in Vivanta by Taj - Bentota, Sri Lanka has enhanced a resort that is widely appreciated for its Indian Ocean views, pristine beach, wide-ranging culinary offerings and Ayurveda Jiva Spa," said Mr Manoj Mathew General Manager.

Set amid lush gardens and swinging palms, the hotel's dining options include al fresco grilled seafood at S.H.A.C.K., fine dining at Sea View and international cuisine served 24 hours a day at The Palms. In addition, The Oriental Pavilion, the only authentic Chinese restaurant in Bentota, will inspire guests with its flavours of the Far East.

The timely makeover of Vivanta by Taj - Bentota, Sri Lanka coincides with the new three-times-a-week British Airways inaugural flight from London Gatwick to Colombo, via the Maldives, which launched on 14 April 2013.
