Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa Sri Lanka: Water sports are a key elements for hotel guests
Nestled on a strip of land between the Bentota River and the Indian Ocean, and only accessible by boat, the multifaceted upscale resort offers an extensive choice of watersports for all ages and ability levels, with professional equipment and courses conducted by professionally trained instructors.
This is the Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa Sri Lanka.
“Water sports are a key element of the guest experience here at Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa Sri Lanka, which is why we are such a popular destination for families and couples alike,” explains Mario Taulien, General Manager, Centara Ceysands Resort and Spa.
“With its smooth waters and soothing natural scenery, the Bentota River is a perfect place for nature lovers, curious explorers and those wanting to learn a new sport. The Indian Ocean also allows guests to harness the power of the waves and wind for an exhilarating adventure,” he adds.
The resort is inviting guests to take advantage of its unique marine location this summer, with generous discounts on an array of exciting water sports.
Sri Lanka’s incredible underwater ecosystem means world-class dive sites are located within easy reach of the resort by boat, while on the river-facing side the waters are sheltered from the ocean by a narrow strip of land, and ideal for kayaking, water-skiing, jet-skiing, wake boarding, dinghy rafting and banana boat rides. This also provides the perfect setting for younger guests or beginners to learn and practice new skills, overseen by qualified instructors.
Those seeking a more tranquil experience can join a Bentota River Safari. Heading deep into the untouched mangrove forests, this half-day excursion offers guests the opportunity to spot a wealth of local wildlife, including colourful tropical birds, rarely seen, endearing fruit bats and even crocodiles. River vessels can accommodate everything from romantic couples’ picnics to 20-person cruises and the trip has become a must-do activity for guests from around the world.
