Despite being off the beaten track, this hotel has a huge amount of character, with excellent staff. We stayed there for 2 nights, which probably a sufficient length of time for what we were looking for. The attention to detail in the hotel decor epitomises what this hotel has to offer. The food was excellent (breakfast and dinner). It is... More

The Best welcome We arrived late and unlike any other hotel we have stayed at on our trip we were shown straight to our room. The attentive and friendly general manager who greeted us - Daham said the paper work could wait and asked if we had eaten. We had our welcome drink, a cool towel and a club sandwich... More

We stayed here for a wedding in November and we had the most incredible time. The staff were so polite, hospitable and kind. Do not believe the review below about stealing, there is no way it was one of the lovely staff members! The food, rooms and grounds of the hotel are all so beautiful. Candles and frangipani flowers are... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights in The Villa following a longer stay in the southern province of Galle. It is a beautiful building, designed by Bawa (as many buildings are in this part of SL). Despite being very close to the railway line this almost adds to the colonial feel of the property and location. The food is... More

Villa Bentota is everything you would ask for in a boutique property. Its beautifully done, the rooms are lovely & always smell good, there is a quaint cafe, lots of sit outs, beautiful pools...Its a feast for the eyes. The red train passing by just adds to the charm. Beach is gorgeous, and so are the wild pineapple trees before... More

We chose this place to unwind for 6 nights after a round trip through Sri Lanka and think that this is easily the nicest hotel we have ever stayed at! Everything was perfect, from staff to room to pool to the ocean. We stayed in Suite 2 which was very charming with a great view of the garden and a... More

The villa Bentota is a fantastic boutique hotel, very nicely decorated. Beach is 50 metres from the hotel, although you have to cross a train track. By the way the train passing so near could be noisy, but in reality do not disturb too much Food is excellent and the service impecable, with staff always ready to anticipate our needs

Stayed for 2 nights in a suite. Like: 1. Very spacious room and balcony area like a villa. 2. Excellent bed that you will fall asleep soon. 3. Above all, srilankan food at one of its best here. I am a pure vegetarian (india) and chef could prepare veggie food excellantly. Ask for srilankan rice & curry (raita and bringal... More

This is a really great place to stay. Fantastic rooms, lovely staff who do all they can to help. We really enjoyed being at the villa. Other comments mention the train that runs through the bottom of the garden, it does start very early in the morning and the train driver likes to sound the horn as it passes the... More
