We stayed here for 8 nights in January this year and we loved it. On our arrival we were lucky enough to be given a choice of 3 rooms and ended up with one over the large suite to the side of the property. Heshan and his staff make this hotel, by being helpful and attentive but not intrusive. We... More

We returned from Sri Lanka on 8 June, our final week being spent in Club Villa. What a lovely place to stay! From arrival to leaving we felt very comfortable and at home. Every member of staff was attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Food was superb and the grounds of the hotel were beautifully kept and immaculately clean.... More

There's so much written about this place - its lovely Geoffrey Bawa-designed villas, the intimate sense of scale, and natural environment with close proximity to the unspoiled beach. (How can you not love the unexpected and occasional passing of the train?) They are all true. What made our trip extra special was how well we were take care of, not... More

A lovely boutique hotel with gorgeous decor, relaxing gardens and uniquely designed individual rooms. Our room and bathroom were large with a beautiful terrace overlooking the gardens and mangroves out to the ocean. The manager, Heshan, was very welcoming and his team of staff were excellent. Croquet on the lawn, relaxing by the pool and sunset walks on the beach,... More

Had the pleasure of staying in this hotel for several days. Sublime. The gardens, the beach, the rooms, the lobby, all of it. Heshan, the manager, is a consummate professional and runs this place like a well-oiled machine.

A boutique hotel that more than met our expectations, right from the location, the decor, the service, food, friendly staff to the fact that the beach is no more than a 7 minute leisurely walk across a beautiful lawn, a railway track, and a mangrove plantation! Oh, and there's a swimming pool as well for those times when even 7... More

This is a delightful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff right from the gardener to the charming lady who I think was the owner. It is far enough away towards the beach from the busy coastal road to avoid traffic noise. Our accommodation had its own courtyard garden with bougainvillea and shaded seating area. There is also a lovely... More

This is a little bit of paradise in Sri Lanka and our second time here – we love it! The location at Bentota has direct access to a gorgeous beach, once you cross the single track railway line. With around 6 or so trains a day, this wasn’t any real nuisance and it was jolly interesting watching the locals hanging... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend of the owner. It is small with an attentive staff. Lovely rooms. Beautiful pool. Quick walk to the pristine beach. Restaurant has limited menu but all is fresh and well prepared. Excellent grilled seafood.
