Our travels around beautiful Sri Lanka saw us stop over at Bethany 101 for a couple of nights as a base for sightseeing around the immediate area (including a Safari - oh what early morning start). The gates opened to what can best be described as a very special 'home' that just happens to take in guests. From the rooms... More

This is a near perfect hideaway but walking distance to Puttalam town. Impeccably maintained with very attentive staff who is there to attend to your every need. Has 6 bedrooms of various sizes (from rooms with just a double-bed to the largest which accommodates 3 x king size beds). All rooms have good air conditioning and ceiling fans and attached... More

Had a good experience.q Good place to relax. It has a blend of luxury with antiques. Located next a lagoon .staff were very flexible. Remember it was a 50 min drive to the wilpattu national park where we managed to spot a few leopards.

Located in Puttalam a lovely drive from Colombo. The hospitality is amazing helps you sit back and relax and enjoy sumptuous meals. Wilpattu national park is half hour drive and I was lucky enough to spot the leapords taking a lazy walk down the road.

A lovely place which delights from the moment you walk in: from the pretty blue flowered creeper scrambling on the verandah roof, the blue simmering pool, the stretch of green lawn, the coolness of the interior, the Daniell prints and old maps, the architecture books, the antique furniture, to the tv room with large bean bags … A house for...

Bethany Bungalow - A very iconic bungalow of the last centaury in Puttalam town, which overlooks the lagoon, - one has no idea of the comforts & luxuries at hand until you arrive indoors! A sprawling well maintained lawn in the courtyard with a swimming pool, shining brass fittings, classic Dutch period furniture, well polished floors, a collection of interesting... More

Literally one of the best places to stay on the Island right now. Unfathomable hospitality by the staff, made walking 10 feet to grab a glass of water feel like too much work and then there was the food, the freshest seafood one could possibly ask for and the alfresco BBQ by the pool made me sleep a happy lad!...

What's not to love - every meal is a feast for all senses, from the fragrance of the spices in the Biryani, to the alfresco seafood BBQ under the stars, to the complexities in tastes and textures of the cuisine itself. The villa is beautifully designed, immaculately restored, and tastefully furnished. Attention to detail is astounding - will require a... More

We visited Bethany 101 as a group of friends and had a most incredible time. The property is beautifully designed and furnished, and has been incredibly well maintained. The attention to detail is outstanding. The bedrooms were all very nice and they all had large clean bathrooms. The pool is very well sized and has a pavilion right beside it.... More
