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

We stayed here for 2 nights. A lovely boutique hotel with beautiful architecture and interior design by Geoffrey Bawa. Enough sun loungers, attentive staff, great pool, lovely grounds. Oh and no-one tells you but there are no TVs in the rooms, which you actually don't need. Free internet but weak signal. Everyone raved about the food, but I thought it... More

We really enjoyed our brief stay at Club Villa and wished it could have been longer...the property is a Geoffrey Bawa design and the owners have continued the 'tropical modernist' theme throughout. It will be pleasing to anyone who appreciates interior design. Our standard room on the ground floor has a little private patio, perfect for a g&t sundowner. The... More

We've stayed in Club Villa for a week in November 2014 and enjoyed it very much. It is a lovely small hotel, with very spacious, clean rooms. Quiet, with a beautiful garden and pool. Food was very good as well and all of the staff were extremely helpful. It is located next to a beautiful wide sandy beach. A minor... More

I withdrew the first review after the disappointing response by the manager as one cannot respond unless withdrawing. I wish to clarify a few things. We were attending a wedding next door. This was why we stayed here. The grounds are beautifully kept and the pool refreshing. The staff were attentive when asked for towels etc.The beach is lovely. The... More

We stayed in the club villa for 5 nights over Christmas break and had a great time in the Club villa. After a very warm welcome we felt almost like at home and immediately enjoyed the silence even though there have been several families with little children. The food in the restaurant was very good. Special food requests have been... More

Unfortunately we weren't staying at the property, however we went back three days in a row to eat at the restaurant and spend a little time by the lovely pool and the beach. The property itself looks wonderful. The design, the architecture, the colours, the garden... all very pleasing to the eye. The staff is really nice and cheerful too.... More

The architecture by Geoffrey Bawa clustered the villas to the edges of the site, leaving a generous lawn at the centre, with the pool by its side. This makes the villas really private, at the same time it is possible to socialise with fellow guests. The beach is just a train track away, and we saw the most amazing sunset,... More

Great place to chill, very warmthful people, excellent sri lankan cuisine. Also we just got upgraded to a deluxe suite for free. Room no. 15 is the best with a sea side view. The rooms are old fashioned and nice. The service there is par excellence....worth the money.

I absolutely loved every minute spent in the Club Villa and here is why: The villa itself is lovely and it was nice to walk around exploring every nook of the place. There is a nice pool and garden eith hammocks as well. The beach is a minute walk away and there is a railway track running just outside our... More
