We stayed in this hotel during February 2012. The hotel property is very beautiful, and it has direct access to an excellent beach. The overall atmosphere is very relaxing and was perfect for us, considering we had just spent a very hectic few days discovering Sri Lanka. There was only 1 things that slightly bothered us: the rooms weren't so... More

We knew it was a risk travelling to Bentota in rainy season - and as it turned out, we were treated to some of the heaviest rain they'd seen in recent years! However, the Villa Bentota is such a beautiful, special place that it didn't matter. We were greeted with home-made ginger beer, which was the perfect tonic after a... More

Set amongst sprawling lush grounds with coconut palms swaying above you, The Villa is an absolutely heavenly ‘home away from home’ which doesn’t feel anything like a hotel instead it’s like living in your very own dream home with superb service and food to rival that of the Worlds top resorts (and at a fraction of the price..)

We stayed at The Villa Bentota from 15th to 17th Aug 2012. This is a charming boutique hotel with around 15 rooms. The highlight is the railway line that runs across the property and old trains chug by throughout the day - it is almost like fairytale when the old Canadian locomotives pulling the old carriages pass by. The property... More

Upon arriving after 8+hours trip from Nuwara Eliya the only thing we were interested in was to get to the room and lie down. And the only thing that was not allowing us to do so ...was the fact that the hotel did not have our reservation! Granted, it was not the hotel's problem: we made our booking through booking.com...

Villa Bentota is a beautiful small hotel in an old colonial style house set back from the beach in peaceful gardens. Our rooms were above the bar with connecting balconies, which worled well for us, and had great views out to the gardens, railway line and trees behind the beach. The location is great and we enjoyed the trains going... More

Great hotel, with delicious food, helpful staff and a lovely setting. We stayed for 3 nights and from arriving at the hotel (after travelling for over 15 hours) to checkout we were truly looked after every minute of our stay. We loved the proximity to the beach, and the quirkiness of the railway line - drinking wine in the summer... More

Stayed here for two nights in April on the way to Galle. We landed in Colombo at 3.30 and arrived exhausted at The Villa at 7.30am to be greeted and shown straight to our bed. A very welcome gesture considering we weren't scheduled to check in until 3pm that day. The same level of service was consistent throughout our stay... More

We spent only one night at The Villa but wish it had been more! The hotel itself is a work of art, the pool and gardens sublime, the staff could not have been more helpful, the food and cocktails delicious and our suite was superbly luxurious and comfortable. The perfect place for complete relaxation away from it all.
