This is one of those places you must experience if you can. Atmospheric, stylish, pretty, somewhat quaint- it sticks in your memory for a while. The rooms are luxurious and charming. Gives you the feel of living inside a spa. It's a place to chill and de-stress and do nothing. Perfect for that book you have been meaning to read... More

My girlfriend and I are backpacking around Asia and picked out Paradise Road as a special treat, way out of our usual budget, as a treat for my 30th birthday. On that score, it delivered. Its pricy but that's justifed by beautiful rooms, stunning grounds and a spectacular beach just 30 seconds' walk from the hotel. It was a genuine... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy 2 nights in this beautiful boutique hotel :-) It was the best place we stayed during our trip of 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. The room was awesome, even with the train. The food was excellent, something hard to find in SL. We hope to be back some day...

Nothing but positive things to say about Paradise Road. The room (we stayed in a suite) was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The food is very good, the service very friendly, and it's tranquil and beautiful. There is only wi-fi in public areas (so not in the bedrooms) but I think they are clear about that on the website. It's... More

Stayed for one week after many days and hours of travelling around the Island. A beautifully designed property with lots of space just to chill out and relax. The hotel creates an ambiance of staying in a private villa. The staff are attentive and nothing is too much trouble but they are not obviously always at your side and pushing... More

This was by far one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in in South East Asia . Geoffrey Bawa designed and staffed by very friendly professional staff. Food as good as paradise road in Colombo and right ona beautiful beach. Definitely worth a visit.

We spent our honeymoon at The Villa Bentota - a lovely, impeccably furnished, boutique hotel. A bit pricey, but ultimately worth it. There is easy access to a beautiful stretch of beach. It’s also a 10 min. drive away from the Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project which is a must-visit during sunset. The aesthetic of the villa is gorgeous, with... More

Really nice boutique hotel to stay. Rooms are nice and so are staff. Stayed for 3 nights. Food takes time, however overall a recommended hotel to stay in.This is close to the beach and is next to bigger hotels. The rooms are very quaint and well designed.

The first thing that hits you as you enter through the narrow lanes is the fusion of Art and Architecture. You immediately get a feel of being in a bohemian chic kinda place. The rooms are well laid out and have nice decks, day beds to lounge and enjoy the tropical weather. The bathing accessories like shower gels, shampoos, lotion... More
