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. But all the words come to life only when one actually walks through the gates, steps into the unusually interesting...

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

Awesome property. Amazing architecture. Best place to relax. Nice big rooms. The view from the rooms is spectacular. The pool and poolside is fantastic. Very easy access to beach.

What a wonderful and beautiful venue. We were so unlucky to only stay here just one night! Everything about the place is beautiful, relaxing and the attention to detail is second to none.

We enjoyed our stay at The Villa Bentota. The grounds are beautiful, the food delicious and the beach just across the road. The rooms though comfortable are badly in need of a makeover.
