This is a must go if you want a romantic get-away. The rooms are splendid and huge. We realized that each room is unique and has a different style. The beach is short walk from this place and its clean. The staff is very polite and well behaved. The service is good and so is the food. The only negative... More

Best stay in Sri lanka. Amazing grounds, staff, food, home-made ice-cream, rooms, heated swimming pool... can't recommend this place enough. The beach is divine and clean as well. Train tracks run at the back of the hotel, making it very atmospheric and exotic. They don't go at night so don't worry about noise. Do try their sri lankan curries, they... More

This is an enchanting little hotel set some way off the main road. The railway line that passes between the hotel and the beach only adds to the charm of the place, and you will not feel at a disadvantage for having to walk through a little grove for about 50 metres to get to the beach. At the time... More

You could not ask for better service in such a classy and sophisticated setting for such incredible value. The team at The Villa are second to none from the staff by the pool who seem to know you need a drink or a towel before you do, to the restaurant staff right up to the management as headed by Daham...

The hotel is a small 15 room/suite boutique hotel. The hotel has beautiful gardens and is about 150 metres to the beach. The hotel is beautifully arranged with lots of little nooks and crannies for you to sit and relax. The decor of the hotel is modern Sri Lankan, which is totally charming. My family and I were in the... More

We stayed at the hotel for four nights while visiting Sri Lanka. First the struck us was the beautiful design of the hotel with lots of communal spaces where you can stretch on the couch, surf the web, or just relax. The hotel is unique and exceptionally well though-through. It is small (15 rooms total, but the size with the... More

As we visited Sri Lanka in the beginning of June, there were almost no tourists. So, we felt that all the pleasures of the surroundings were for us and us only, including the magnificent beach few steps away from the hotel, and the flying squirrels, and the birds signing exotic songs, and the trains passing by, and the waving hands...

We absolutely loved the Villa Bentota, everything about it was perfect. The location is stunning on that golden stretch of Bentota Beach. Our rooms were so comfortable, well appointed and unique. The common areas are gorgeous and I imagine even when the hotel is full, there is a quiet corner to find peace. The restaurant was excellent - the service,... More
