I'll be in Bentota in mid december with five friends. I was wondering if we should book rooms with dinner inclusive or would it be better to check out local restaurants? Susanthas has been widely reviewed and suggested by a lot of tourists. And, are there places on the beach at bentota where you can just hang out and have a couple of drinks...like in Goa, India (like the shacks they have on the beach)?
You will not find beach shacks in Bentota, but the there are some restaurants/bars in the national holiday resort which is just across the road from Aida. With a short tuk tuk ride you can find more along the coast to the south.
