After a week and a half of touring Sri Lanka, we spent four tranquil and heavenly days at The Villa Bentota. Although all 15 rooms and suites were filled when we visited, we barely saw another sole for four days. The hotel is magnificently decorated and laid out... Every nook is more beautiful than the next... And the staff is...

Beautiful place, beautiful food... So why rattle the milk bottles to remove me from the bar at 9.45pm... Such a shame Nothing else wrong but on a holiday from the Middle East I don't need a bar closing on me. Nothing in the details telling me that was the case...

Thank you for taking the time to review Paradise Road The Villa Bentota.

We do hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay and look forward to welcoming you back again!...

The Villa is one of the most charming places ever. Ideally located, it is the perfect place for a weary tourist to kick back and fully take in the incredible, natural splendours that Sri Lanka has to offer. Another plus is that it is just a hop, skip and jump away from a gorgeous private beach. Architecturally, the place retains...

We had a relaxing and enjoyable two night stay at The Villa Bentota - despite the weather! The historic building is lovely and tastefully decorated. There are lots of places to relax (some do get soaked wet though!) The grounds were immaculate and there were lots of lovely touches like a tea and cake service in the bar in the...

My wife and I visited Sri Lanka end of June. We knew it wasn't the best time but thought it would be ok since it's the end of the wet season. We usually like to treat ourselves when booking hotels especially when the destinations are beach destinations. The villa bentota was one of the best hotels we stayed in (we...

In all honesty the most beautiful, delightful place that I've ever stayed. Serene and luxurious in a truly light touch way. Architecturally refined and tastefully indulgent, every detail has been considered from the light and airy rooms, the carefully selected modern art, the crisp bed linen, and the immaculate, darkly rippling pool and lush grounds. The buildings are an architectural...

The Villa Bentota is a very special place, originally designed by Geoffrey Bawa. It's beautiful, relaxing and calm. It gets all the details right, aesthetics, service and style. There is a quirky railway and beyond that a beautiful beach. It's a special place I'd love to return to.

With the right amount of sophistication and meticulously detailed aesthetics Villa Bentota exudes a sense of peace to everyone who decides to visit it. Designed by world renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, it has been described profoundly by writers and visitors.

We started our well deserved vacation here with the intention to do absolutely nothing and be pampered by the hotel staff. Well, that worked out pretty well! Great place to be, nice staff, good food and pleasant location. Even the once in a while passing train was a welcome and interesting interruption of our activities. Highly recommended! Leonel

Great place to stay. All the character of a private villa but run like a hotel. Staff were exceptional, food was lovely and realistically priced. The pool was good. Plenty of water and snacks by the pool. Lovely beach and location. I would say one of the best places I have ever stayed
