The number of reviews we read before booking this place had our expectations soaring. And the place that this is, surpassed everything. Stunning, simply stunning. What struck us most was the unusual layout of the resort. The common spaces, the eating and drinking areas, the rooms, the pool area and the lawns - all blending seamlessly into one another yet...

Just home after a long weekend with friends staying at Paradise Road The Villa. I had high expectations but in reality it was even better! The overall style and decor is gorgeous as is the food. The vibe was great especially over the weekend when it was a bit busier. It did get a bit quiet towards the end of...

All I can say is WOW! We had the most magical experience at The Villa Bentota.. My husband and I booked out the entire hotel for two nights for our wedding there. Having never been to Sri Lanka before, we were a bit nervous about planning a wedding there, but we were extremely lucky to have found The Villa Bentota....

Our room was huge,clean, well appointed and comfortable. We loved the terrace with private dining area and access to the garden. The gardens offer shady places to while away the hours interrupted...

We stayed here for a wedding. Everything was outstanding, from the service to the quality of the food to the comfort of the room. Loved the proximity to the beach and the nice walk there from the garden of the hotel. However, I could have spent whole days studying and enjoying the interior design, the hallmark of which is the...

When we wound our way up the little road in Bentota to The Villa we had no idea it would be so beautifully decorated. The spacious and well designed hotel offers a new experience around every corner as you walk into another lovely open air room with subtly decorated interiors. The black and white theme provides a peaceful but dramatic...

Designed to be simple from the outside and stunning yet subtle from the inside. Love the space. I'm guessing it has seen some restoration. But the team seems to have pulled it back together really well.

We stayed here for 3 nights on out arrival in Sri Lanka. It is a nice place to unwind , excellent pool, very friendly staff and good food in the restaurant.

Set in beautiful gardens and a very short walk to the splendid beach, the setting is near perfect. 'Near' because at the perimeter of the garden is a railway line. The first train zips through at 5:30 am and there are several occurrences during the course of a day. I have to be honest though I found the trains quite...
