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 :)

Great hideout by the ocean
The place was great.. It had spacious rooms each with a beautiful view of the Ocean. You could sit in the balcony and just enjoy the ocean. The staff were very helpful and the food was good. The staff would help you make your own arrangements for trips to Galle or Mirissa or watersports centre.

Great hotel
Stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are spacious with great balconies and pool and sea views. Breakfast was great and the restaurant is reasonably priced. The staff are helpful and very friendly. There are other hotels nearby and an Italian restaurant next door so there are options for other places to eat but not much in the area otherwise.

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.
