It's a quit and peaceful place to stay. The breakfast they provide were amazing. View was nice.The price is affordable. Their service is really great. I had a great time there with my boyfriend. 價錢合宜 景色優美 提供的早餐非常健康好吃 老闆都用新鮮的果汁和水果 有任何需要他們都很樂意幫忙 所在位置也非常的好 根本不需要花錢去住飯店/酒店 這間民宿住起來比舒服 跟民宿主人也沒有距離感 剛到斯里蘭卡的前幾天 我重感冒 主人還特別準備一種特別的茶 讓我的病很快就好了 大力推薦👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Thank you so much!

You won't be disappointed if you stay here, it is a very peaceful and beautiful sanctuary on the river, ten minutes walk away from the sea ( which in August was wild and windy and we were so pleased we chose not to stay at a beachfront place.) Kumara is the friendliest host and went out of his way to... More

Thanks to the hospitality of the host Mr. Kumar, during our stay in Bentota, we felt like at home. Room on the second floor was very comfortable, clean, nice looking, with balcony and view of the quietly flowing Bentota river.
