£835pp – Sri Lanka: 10-Night 5-Star Beach Break with Meals
Vivanta by Taj is a luxurious colonial-style property overlooking one of the island's best beaches
Just south of Bentota, on Sri Lanka's southwestern coast, you'll find "one of the most attractive beaches on the island", says Rough Guides -- "a wide stretch of sand... backed by dense thickets of corkscrew palms". Emirates Holidays has just reduced the price of a 5-star oceanfront getaway at a hotel just two minutes' walk from the beach to £835 per person -- that's a saving of over £550 on prices we've seen elsewhere.

Vivanta by Taj Bentota is a sumptuous, colonial-style property in Sri Lanka's "endlessly exotic" Galle District -- "the big unmissable destination in the south", according to Lonely Planet. The 5-star resort overlooks Bentota Beach and boasts breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean.
Amenities include an outdoor swimming pool with ocean views, a restaurant and a spa offering a mixture of traditional and contemporary Indian treatments (supplements apply). There are also three fine-dining restaurants -- including a thatched-roof seafood restaurant that is lapped by the Indian Ocean -- two bars and a fitness centre.
Superior Charm Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows.
Travelzoo tip: Sri Lanka's Galle District famously beautiful, so we'd recommend getting out and about to explore as much as possible. Trips to the turtle hatchery at Kosgoda and the UNESCO World Heritage- listed Portuguese fortress at Galle can be organised directly through the hotel for a supplement.
