A tranquil beachfront location is matched by sleek and stylish interiors at the Temple Tree Resort & Spa, located just 2.5 miles away from the vibrant resort town of Bentota. Ancient temples and markets are nearby for guests to explore — as are sandy beaches that turtles visit to lay their eggs.

Of course, guests can also choose to soak up the resort’s many unique attractions. This oasis of calm features a sensual, minimalist design of polished concrete, warm wood and neutral furnishings, matched with splashes of bold colour — perfectly balancing a cosmopolitan theme with a beach vibe.

The specialist ayurvedic spa offers guests a chance to experience the region’s herbal-based healing practices and traditions, passed down through generations. Therapists trained in these exotic methods provide a range of refreshing and restorative treatments in this boutique spa, with a warm ocean breeze refreshing this whitewashed sanctuary. A revitalising massage is a perfect introduction to the Temple Tree Resort & Spa, ensuring guests unwind and renew the balance between mind, body and soul in the luxurious surrounds.

All the spacious rooms and suites have stunning views of the Indian Ocean, making every sunset a romantic experience. Whirlpool baths, rain showers, private balconies and 24-hour room service ensures guests can unwind without leaving their rooms.

Occupying an unspoilt stretch of the Sri Lankan coastline, where a luscious palm-dotted hinterland meets the sea, Temple Tree Resort & Spa is the perfect destination for both sunbathers and those in search of something a little more adventurous.

Windsurfing, deep-sea fishing and scuba diving are all available nearby and the hotel’s staff can assist with arranging excursions. There are two pools on site and a terrace restaurant, allowing for intimate al fresco dining on the many warm evenings. Seafood is a speciality, amid a wide range of local dishes and international cuisine that caters to all tastes.
