We stayed here at the end of our Sri Lankan trip for a total of five nights to relax and unwind and on that score the hotel delivered! Located close to the beach (which in fact was deserted most of the time or only had a smattering of people on) the hotel also offers guests the opportunity to relax and... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Villa Bentota. The grounds are beautiful, the food delicious and the beach just across the road. The rooms though comfortable are badly in need of a makeover. In fact the whole property looks rather more magical at night when they light it all up with lanterns and all the little flaws hidden. When talking... More

We booked five nights in this boutique hotel for our spring break. My wife and I wanted a relaxing time next to a nice beach and this hotel fitted the bill perfectly. We relaxed by the impressive pool for the first three days with walks to the beach early morning and late afternoons. The staff were excellent, very attentive and... More

My wife and I stayed five nights in this lovely luxury boutique hotel and didn't set foot outside of the grounds! We didn't need to. We spent the days next to the lovely pool and evenings at the hotel restaurant and bar. The staff were excellent! A few issues with translation but generally great. The food in the restaurant was...

I’ve just come back after a fantastic, relaxing 10 day stay in this boutique hotel, and I must say I miss it already. Here’s why: The best beach on Sri Lanka The villa is located 50 m away from Bentota beach, which is truly the best I’ve seen on Sri Lanka so far. There were very few people there. Even... More

What a stunning piece of property! Stayed here for 5 nights and hardly left the villa because we were just so happy to be in the villa compound. Loved the amazing spacious room and private terrace. Staff was extremely helpful and thoughtful and nothing was too much for them. Food at the restaurant was simple and delicious. Definitely a memorable... More

We finished our 3 week Sri Lankan tour with 4 nights at The Villa Paradise road and what a place it is, it was designed by the famous architect Geoffrey Bawa. The room we had was lovely with a nice size balcony overlooking the grounds. The grounds itself have many places to chill out it has a wonderful swimming pool.... More

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
