we were two families suddenly decided to come for lunch, Nothing can be better than a good lunch at a beautiful place like this. Everything was perfect and beyond our expectations. Great location, quality of food far above mouth watering sea food dishes local black pork curry recipe remains same after one year, curry flavored crab meat soup all pizza and pasta dishes accurate weight quality and taste is divine I have experienced most of the places we go out for lunch now a days service is very slow due lack of staff or staff is very lazy service is very slow. Hat off to the food and beverage and culinary team superior fast service kids foods adults food course by course accurately on time. all are Very professional we will definitely come back.

If you are looking for a private holiday, this is the place for you. Amazing architecture, very old school, and a beautiful property with a 2 minute walk to the bentota beach. The beach feels like a private beach. We were in suite 4 and the room was a nice size for a family of 3, with a terrace. The food is the best of all the options in Bentota. The breakfast options are both continental and sri lankan. The lunch and dinner menu is extensive and the food is excellent. My wife is vegan and you can tell the chef exactly what you want and they are happy to customise. We had the baked crab which was excellent. Do try the hoppers in breakfast, they are worth trying. On the last night we had a panic situation where we had to rush to Colombo airport as flights were getting cancelled, the front office a very reliable driver immediately to take us there. An excellent place to stay and you will get used to the train.

Superb public rooms and interesting decor. Good breakfasts and great staff. Immaculately manicured grounds and easy walk to the super beach. The train might bother some - it does run through the night. We found it quite entertaining!

What an awesome place to spend our last night in Sri Lanka - so wish we had been able to spend a few more days at this gorgeous old world colonial hotel. Everything from the service to the decor and the food was perfect. Loved the position and the beach.

We have travelled the world far and wide and have stayed in world class hotels in beautiful places but we were completely not expecting how lovely The Villa actually was. Not only the obvious design but the air of calm that exudes from it . So we will simply say that it definitely ranks amongst the best, professional and helpful staff who cannot help enough. If you need anything just ask and don’t forget to dine in at the hotel. They prepared us a wonderful and filling sea food platter on our last night that was expertly prepared and cooked. Top class in every respect. Thank you to all of the staff who make it such a charming residence.
