STV Super Specials
What do these rates mean?

* STV Super Specials are STV's usual SUPER Discounted Special rates, GENUINELY and STRICTLY ONLY available for TRAVEL INDUSTRY Employees resident globally, and are classified as an Employee Benefit. (Available to Airline, Travel Agent, Tour Operator, ATC & Airport Handling Agent Employees)

* You must be a Travel Industry Employee and you must be registered with STV (Free) to be able to book our STV Super Special rates.

* Minimum one Travel Industry Employee per room. You are required to present your I.D. / proof of employment on check-in.

* There is no limit to the number of bookings per year you can book (unless stated otherwise)

* Friends and Family cannot book STV Super Special Rates. They can accompany you but must stay in the same room as you (some hotels permit an extra room for Friends & Family and if so this will be stated on the hotel page, but you must always be included in the booking and be staying at the hotel).

* PAYMENT & CANCELLATION: With STV Super Special rates you only need to pay a very small refundable deposit within 14 days of making your booking, or right away if travelling short notice, and the main balance of the booking is paid direct to the hotel, usually on check-in. It is FREE to cancel or amend dates for your booking, often right up to and including the day of check-in, making these rates great for standby travelers (see each hotels payment & cancellation terms). When you make a booking request with STV Super Special rates and it is confirmed, you do not need to go ahead with the booking and can cancel immediately without paying a deposit if you wish.

* Remember STV Super Special Rates are only available for Airline & Travel Industry Employees as an employee benefit and are the lowest rates you will ever find.


* True Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates are known as ON REQUEST. This means you choose your hotel and Super Special rate and submit your booking request through our website and you will receive a response back from the hotel as soon as possible. Because the rate is so highly discounted, the hotel 1st needs to check if they have enough spare rooms to agree to let you pay these exclusive Travel Industry Employee rates. The hotels will often reply to you the same day but be prepared to wait up to 24-48 hours ~ It's worth it!

* BEWARE of other Interline/Agency companies telling you they offer Genuine Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates with 'immediate confirmation'! This is simply not true, and you are being misled. Hotels need to manually check their availability for Genuine Travel Industry employee rates and this can take 1-2 days. This is why they are known as ON REQUEST rates.

* BEWARE. If other companies tell you your Friends and Family can use the same rates as you unaccompanied, you know they are not genuine Travel Industry Rates! No hotels allow Friends & Families to book genuine Airline & Travel Agency Employee rates unaccompanied, so they are simply selling you rates that are also available to the general public through other channels.

STV have different rates available to Friends and Family to enjoy unaccompanied, they are called STV Direct rates. Because we source such rates in bulk and are the only truly global client and leading company selling holidays to Airline and Travel Agency Employees and their Friends and Family (we have served travel industry employees resident in over 200 countries ~ almost every single country on the planet), we always have the lowest STV Direct rates available anywhere. See STV Direct for these great deals for you and your Family.

About the Hotel

If you’re a carefree soul with an irrepressible sense of opulence, here’s where you need to be. On the one hand, the sound of the flowing river and the crashing ocean waves will please your soul, on the other hand, the rich architecture dripping with luxury will blow your mind.

This beautiful space also holds a legacy of its own. Inspired by the Galle Fort, it was originally designed by the legendary Geoffery Bawa to evoke a sense of grandeur and heritage.

Only recently, under the guidance of his esteemed student Channa Daswatte, the hotel was refurbished in line with modern tastes. So, if you’re looking for a truly indulgent holiday on a golden beach surrounded by lush gardens and lovely blue waters, this is a perfect choice.

Premium Terrace
Wake up to golden moments
Premium Rooms are a reminder to stop and smell the roses. With a top view of the hotel's beautiful gardens, it’s difficult to resist the urge. Then, there’s also the pool that will invite you for a few laps every morning and evening.

While the space around engages you, the minimalist aesthetics of the room allow you to just be. So, sink into your comfortable bed and watch your favourite shows on the television. Or, make good use of the wing chair and the ottoman, and lose yourself to a book with your feet up. 


Luxury Sea View
Take a dip in luxury
A wonderful view of the ocean reminds you of how lucky you are to behold nature’s inexplicable beauty.

Suave interiors coupled with premium amenities make you want to call this space your home. While you’re enjoying all of this, a mini bar invites you to raise a toast to good times.

Luxury Beach Access
A wave of luxury.
When you choose to excuse your routine and take a holiday, it’s only fair that you indulge a little. These luxury rooms allow you to do just that.

Soak up the ocean view the minute you wake up, sip on that first refreshing cup of coffee, and drift into a holiday state of mind.

Head out for a day out at the beach, come back for a sundowner and sink into the plush comfort of your room.

The king-sized bed, the contemporary décor and the warm mood lighting are curated to pamper you to bits.


Premium Pool Access
Wake up to golden moments
What’s better than waking up to a lush green garden? Waking up to a lush green garden, and a golden beach! That’s exactly what Upper Category Premium Rooms tempt you with. 

A scenic morning walk by the ocean, a beautiful sunset right on the beach, or a garden with little birds swaying from one bush to another – what sounds more like you? You can have it all.

Junior Suite
A quaint retreat
There’s a certain charm about Portuguese aesthetics that comforts the heart and the mind. Its quaintness and warmth reminds you of Sunday mornings.

Add to that, just the right balance of colours and voila, you’ll slip into bliss.

This suite indulges your little desires in a way that you look forward to returning to the hotel after a fabulous day out at the beach.


Premium Suite
A lush haven
This eco-friendly suite is where the Dedduwa Lake found it’s way metaphorically into the hotel's space.

The décor of this room creates an aura that’s as pleasant as the birdsongs and the rustling of leaves around the lake. 

On the unlikely occasion when you feel like you’ve lounged enough, you might want to walk up to your private balcony that overlooks our expansive gardens.

Yes, once you’re in this suite, you’re truly in nature’s company.

Fuze – Lounge Bar
Indulge the holiday spirit that lets you create life’s best moments. Even if it’s only catching up with your tribe over a few drinks. Even if, that’s after spending an entire day with the same folks.

For this important highlight of your vacation, we house two experiences - one, ‘Drench’, the most stylish swim-up pool bar Bentota has, and two, ‘Fuze’, the lounge bar, that serves the most fun molecular cocktails.

Drench - Pool Bar
It’s interesting how being in the pool becomes much more enjoyable with a drink in the hand. That’s why, the most stylish swim-up pool bar Bentota has, makes sure you don’t waste time getting out of the pool to get one.

So, order a cocktail to sip on while you take another lap and soak in the good life. After all, you’re on holiday!
