Travelling from Colombo airport to Taj Exotica

by Clarice_Ren Online Now Sep 22, 2007 at 2:15 PM

Evening

Would anyone be able to advise me how much I should pay for a Taxi from Colombo airport to the Taj Exotica in Bentota?

Am I right in thinking that the journey is approximately 1 hour?

And lastly, is this a safe journey for a woman on her own in the afternoon?

Many thanks

    Hi there,

    a) It's about Rs 8000
    b) Because it's not at all 1 hour but about 3-4 hours. In afternoon probably 4 as you need to pass Colombo rush hour. (It's about 100-110 km from airport).
    c) Fully safe, don't worry at daytime in Lanka.

    Have fun,

    & [Sandya]

    PS Lovely choice of hotel!

    this is the government site for tourist...

    3-4 hrs is realistic

    if your alone in the benthota , you defintely may get proposals from tuk tuk drivers beach vendors or many people, a firm NO will get rid of them fast.
