Whispering Palms Hotel, Bentota
Lovely hotel on the beach in Induruwa
Excellent hotel - great location and very good cuisine in the restaurant attached to the hotel. The view from the balcony is splendid . Every room has an ocean facing balcony and there are only 15 or 18 rooms. Nice clean pool right next to the beach as well. Breakfast was included and it was not a buffet , it was ordered a la carte and delicious . Dinner at the restaurant was reasonably priced and delicious as well. We had an Airconditioning failure on the first night, which could have been potentially disastrous. However it was fixed that same night. WiFi was fairly weak and there's no TV in the rooms (a good thing) but really , if you're not going to this hotel to unplug and get away , you're here for the wrong reasons :)

Very Good8.0
Good all-round
The hotel has a great location overlooking the sea. The room was large with a large bathroom. The staff are helpful. The hotel's best feature is the restaurant, which had a varied menu. The food was good quality. You would need to get a taxi to anywhere in the area, but this is very cheap. You could easily spend several days relaxing here without leaving the hotel. The pool is also great. The hotel seems reasonably well maintained.
