Certificate of Excellence
The Rockside Beach resort was officially opened in January 2015 and offers wonderful luxury on a superb beach in the south of Bentota Bay. The resort has 18 luxuriously furnished rooms, facing the sea side, each with an inviting balcony. The rooms are designed with the highest European standards and high quality materials and equipment. The bathrooms of granite style are equipped with interiors and fittings from Hansgrohe Germany. You will of course also find many amenities such as remote A/C, room-service, daily Housekeeping, personal Safe, satellite TV, fan, tea, coffee and much more. The rooms are separated into three floors accessible by an elevator with one conveniently set up for wheelchair users. From the ground floor restaurant, bar and lounge area you will have a wonderful view of the pool and the lush gardens. Only a few meters and a small bridge from the pool you will easily discover the stunning Rockside private beach. In this wonderful spot, we are able to pamper you with a wide selection of food and drink from the Rockside-Beach-Bar. Sunbathing and just 'Chillin' with Soothing-Sounds by the Beach-Bar or relaxing with an Ocean-View-Ayuveda-Massage....these are many of the extraordinary possibilities of our outstanding Ocean Oasis. We offer the right surroundings for every mood so as to indulge your senses and make your holiday truly unforgettable. The hotel restaurant is open all day and offers a wide range of local and international food and drink. During daytime hours, we also offer snacks and cocktails at our Rockside Beach Bar right next to the ocean. As the day moves on, join us for one of our regular Dinning Specials like Seafood-Buffets, Beach-BBQ's, and special Theme-Nights, all in the comfortable setting of the Private Rockside Beach or in our Tranquil Lunch Gardens. On special occasions, let us surprise you with a romantic dinner enhanced by fire lanterns, live music, all magnified by sounds of ocean waves caressing the nearby shore. In addition to our hotel amenities, we will be happy to help organize your Sri Lankan Trips/Tours. Our Tour-Office on the property is always available to assist you in making your extended holiday plans. Our fleet of Rockside vehicles combined with our on-site and local shops leave little to be desired. There are also plenty of nearby possibilities for watersports, cultural, and historical activities as well. The hotel is conveniently located and easy to reach from our International Airport in Colombo. Via the Galle Road, or main highway, 2.5 hours or less will find you pleasantly situated at our Ocean paradise. We are happy to pick you up directly from the airport in one of our luxurious Rockside shuttle buses ensuring a smooth transition to your well deserved holiday. If you so wish, traveling by bus and train from all parts of Sri Lanka is possible, easy and will certainly be an adventure. Please contact us by phone or e-mail if you need any assistance with directions and/or transport. Our awesome, accomodating and enthusiastic Team at the Rockside Beach Resort looks forward to welcoming you at every opportunity.
