If you are looking for comfort and a small scale hotel rather than a resort, this is the place to be! In Panchi Villa we (couple with small children) felt immediately at home. The rooms were very comfortable with nice views from the balcony's, the swimming pool was clean and nicely situated in the garden. But most important, the staff...

We stayed here for one night while travelling up from Galle to Negombo. It is quite far away from anything and the nearby beach is not great. Covered in rubbish. There is a pool at the hotel but the sunbeds were all taken (unusual in Sri Lanka from our other hotel experiences). The room had a private balcony area and...

Everything in the villa is almost excellent - friendly staff (receptionists, waiters, gardeners), delicious breakfast served in a 5-star hotel style, the pool and of course the rooms (of which the two top floor superior ones are perfect). The villa is surrounded by greenery, which adds to the exoticism of the place.

This small and lovely hotel is not close to the Bentota town centre, but just along the peach, which makes it quiet and ideal location for a tranquil beach trip. The food is very nice (my girlfriend loves it!). Highly recommended!

We stayed 2 nights in March. The hotel is small; the room was clean, spacious but simple. I think the rooms are slightly overpriced for what you get. Our room was on the ground floor. The hotel feels relatively new and in good condition. The pool is beautiful and inviting. The breakfast is good and generous. The negatives are that...

Visited Sri Lanka for the first time. Based on all reviews I read on Trip Advisor and keeping our budget in mind, I chose to book Panchi Villa.

What a gem of a hotel! The staff were unbelievably friendly from the moment we arrived, and were really helpful when arranging trips. Amazing, clean, beautiful pool, and we even had coconuts delivered to us with a straw in the pool! The breakfast is lovely, on the balcony overlooking the pool and tropical surrounds. Fresh fruit and smoothies every day....

“Ground floor rooms had patio space, upper floors all with large balconies. We had a first floor spacious room for 3 adults. Although we could hear some early morning road and railway noise it didn't affect our stay or enjoyment of this lovely hotel. Maybe the lower rooms would be quieter because we couldn't here any noise when in outdoor restaurant.”
