We spent 4 days here. The rooms were good, with a veranda, and a very large bathroom. It is rather a long way out but we expected to have good river frontage, which unfortunately we did not. The photos on the net bare no resemblance to reality, in fact the whole place looks rather tired. The food was well cooked,... More

We booked a trip to Sri Lanka very last minute, and decided to stay at Mangrove Villa as it looked very peaceful and relaxing, we were not disappointed. We stayed 9 nights and had the most enjoyable, relaxing holiday we could have wished for. Mangrove Villas are situated in a quiet village, 10 minutes via Tuk Tuk from Bentota and... More

It was really hard to find assistance from the staff. Even finding water was really inconvenient. They offer water at a price of Rs.100 per bottle and the most disgusting experience was that we had a hard time getting a person into contact so as to ask for that bottle of water even. Then I called the person whose contact... More

Clean, confortable and spacious rooms. The staff are really friendly, helpful and professional and the young man who served us breakfast was always smiling and very professional too. We went on a river safari where we saw water monitors, crocodiles, chameleons, kingfishers and snakes with a really good guide. I definately recommend mangrove villa!

Mangrove Villa is a unique getaway from most other places. With only 6-7 rooms, it is private and far away from touristy traps. Situated on the side of the river and home to King Fishers and lazy Water Monitors, I could relax and refresh myself. My favourite place was sitting by the river and watch the river go by..... The...
