Just the sound of ‘Sri Lanka’ conjures up images of warmth, hospitality, culture and cuisine. The country is home to World Heritage sites and Buddhist temples; mangrove forests and tea plantations; unique wildlife and some of the world’s best beaches. Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa, on a narrow peninsula between the Indian Ocean and Bentota River, is surrounded by gorgeous views. A golden beach and azure sea lie on one side; a river and verdant forests on the other. Your memorable stay begins with a two-minute barge journey across the river to reach the resort staff ’s warm welcome in the lobby. From the moment you cross the lagoon you can start to imagine beach games, water sports and river adventures. The resort itself is also a perfect vacation destination for families, with a fi tness and water sports centre, ocean-facing swimming pool, children’s pool and Kid’s Club.
