It was a short visit as my son was very tired. Staff were friendly and helpful when my son spilled his drink. Atmosphere was nice (other than my crazy son) and the pizza I had was lovely. Had a tasty coconut water with my meal. Decor is lovely. Not the cheapest but I think it was worth it. Wish I...

As the title says, it must be the best boutique resort in Bentota. I've stayed over in others and visited some as a part of my work. But the Paradise Road's Villa Bentota with it's Geoffrey Bawa's detail which was enhanced by Shanth Fernando has created an amazing escapee. The only issue is the trainline which you have to cross...
