The Management and staff at Villa Bentota helped to make our surprise family holiday even more special with their attention to detail. We had the most wonderful holiday meeting up with our children and their families after almost 4 years. Thank you Villa Bentota.

We stayed for 7 nights in Suite 4 - a wonderful large, light and airy room with a large balcony. The buildings are wonderful, full of fantastic artwork with lots of different rooms to sit and read, relax and shelter from the sun.

We stayed there for 3 days, and it was an awesome experience. Staffs were so accommodating and considerate. We were put all day and we always arrived at the hotel late but they allowed to swim for some time though the pool time was over.

You turn off the Galle Road (after you have told your driver he has missed the turning) and at the bottom of a winding track you find this place. Oh what a haven of tranquility.

We really enjoyed this beautiful place. The staff - especially Sampath the masseur -were great. The food was excellent. The location, right on the Indian Ocean, could not be bettered! Even the train passing between the gardens and the beach was a positive and novel feature.

What a find! Upmarket, luxurious, beautiful surroundings and enjoyable food. The dining room is spectacular. We did struggle a little with the light to read the menu but we obviously weren't the first as the waiters brought us each a small torch this in no way should be a minus as it just made the restaurant a little more quirky....

We had an incredible stay at Paradise Road, the Villa last month. The grounds are simply stunning, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms very luxurious.
