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

If I could award 10 stars to this property I would. Photos and words simply cannot describe how beautiful the place is and how exceptional the service is. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted by considerate, professional staff who really seem to understand their different guests and be able to tailor their service to suit their needs. We...

So different to large 5* hotels and such a great experience! Having spent around 40 hotel stays in Sri Lanka, from North to South, often in the larger hotels - some designed by Sri Lanka’s most influential architect Geoffrey Bawa - we recently discovered a perfect little gem - a country house originally purchased by Bawa in the 70s and...

I have meant to write reviews several times ... And the fact that this is the first time that I have gotten myself to get it - should serve as some proof of how absolutely stunning the experience here was ! The photos truly do not do it justice - and nothing can explain how truly luxurious and relaxing the... More

I can't think of a bad thing to say about Paradise Road - The Villa Bentota Now and again one stumbles across a 'hidden gem' and The Villa certainly comes under this category. The staff is exceedingly friendly and made us feel as if we were at home. The suite was quiet, comfortable, and private. The food was out of... More

We spent 2 nights here after staying at nearby Saman Villas. A completely different standard of hotel, but a completely enjoyable stay. The property is something out of a colonial era movie, designed by Geoffrey Bawa with a range of outdoor spaces allowing for some quiet contemplation. The rooms are oversized and themed in their unique black and white decor.... More

This Jeffery Bower designed hotel was one of my all-time favorites. From the minute we arrived I knew we had made the right decision to stay here. Upon arrival we were greeted with homemade ginger beer (amazing). We checked in and were given the tour of the beautifully built hotel, every nook and cranny had a detail, you could just... More

This was the sixth hotel we stayed in during our trip and by far my favourite. The grounds are just stunning, the rooms are comfortable and stylish and the location is great. It is easy to get to the beach, don't let the mention of the train put you off, and once you get there it is a beach that... More

A very charming hotel with plenty of character. Perfect for a short vacation with a good pool and a small kids pool as well. Close to the beach and the noise from the trains passing nearby are not really disturbing. Each room is different and the smiles at the front desk and even housekeeping were very welcome. Were not sure... More
