Club Villa, Bentota is a quirky boutique hotel with a lovely pool and direct access to the beach (by crossing the raiilway track). All the staff were so friendly and the Manager particularly went out of his way to help us with boarding passes etc. Opt for a ground floor room with its own garden if you can, particularly if...

We have just enjoyed a week at Club Villa to celebrate our 30th Anniversary with our young adult children. Having visited Sri Lanka 30 years ago we were keen to stay somewhere that reflected the country we fell in love with back then. Thanks to Jane Points, at Points South, who understood our needs and organised our holiday. Club Villa... More

We spent one night here in this beautiful boutique hotel decorated by the famous Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa. The garden is a haven of peace and the swimming pool is just perfect. Afternoon tea is served on the lawn (free of charge). The trains go past at the bottom of the garden but they stop at 11 pm and... More

We spent 3 nights at Club Villa in March 2015. The hotel and grounds are beautifully designed, with a garden, pool and beach access. This Bawa hotel is different from the one next door (Paradise The Villa) in that it is a bit more understated and in-tune with its surroundings. The place next door has changed owners and been re-furbished... More

Villa Club is beautiful and well run by Mr. Shakri. the setting is lovely; next to the Indian Ocean. One of the most magnificant stretches of beach; a pool right there. A must for a relaxing stay. Good fresh fruit and fish

This is a great hotel to stay in at Bentota. I would describe it as a boutique hotel, with personalised service, and small quaint rooms. The beds are four poster, and some of the rooms have a mezzanine with an extra bed upstairs. The highlight for our group of nine, were the dinners we enjoyed every evening at this hotel.... More

My husband and I stayed at Club Villa Bentota over New Year's Eve. We were so excited to find such a stunning property on arrival. Unfortunately it was downhill from then on. The property itself is stunning: Geoffrey Bawa architecture, beautiful grounds and pool with plenty of sun loungers and a couple of hammocks. The beach is also fabulous -... More
