My husband and I needed a mini break after lockdown. Being at Villa Bentota was like having a big, luxurious hug. From the warm welcome upon arrival, the incredible food, the sumptuous rooms and fabulous decor, to the pristine pool & immaculate garden. We simply could not have asked for more, apart from a bar, but we knew before arrival that was the case and came with our own supply. The staff are so attentive and incredibly friendly without being over bearing, chef was careful to make sure my vegetarian husband was well catered for and after several rice and curry lunches we were suitably stuffed.. the local sandy expanse of a beach is a hop, skip and a jump away over the train line at the bottom of the garden…thanks to Glenville and his wonderful team at Villa Bentota, we hope to see you again soon…

We booked this fabulous place for fifteen of us to celebrate my husband’s birthday and what an excellent choice this was. The staff go out of their way and it’s never a “no”. The rooms are all decorated differently. The standard rooms are snug and ideal for couples with lovely balconies. The superior rooms and superior suites have lovely tubs, big balconies / verandahs and a unique charm that makes every room special. The food at “Bawa’s Bar” has a nice local touch along with a selection of international dishes. From pho to chicken wings, lamprais and a typical Sri Lankan rice and curry, it’s quite a good choice indeed. The team fired up a BBQ for dinner with a variety of meat items and seafood. Overall I can’t thank the staff enough for their hospitality and it’s definitely a must visit!

Such a stunning and beautiful renovation on a lovely Bawa property by George Cooper and it is delightful. The clever Mr Cooper has totally transformed and brought this lovely property in to the post Covid world using the vintage furniture and modern upholstery . The rooms are fresh and bright and spacious and the feel is one of calm and comfort . Good luck Team VB And I hope you have great success The croissant are outstanding. Made in house !

Coming out of lockdown for the nth time, I was looking for a quiet place to recoup and treat myself for a solo trip. I was still traumatized from the events that took place and getting some fresh air in privacy and safety was hence high on my list of considerations. Villa Benthota by KK is a 400 year old manor (Mohotti Manor) that is now a picture perfect and idyllic boutique villa with 14 bed rooms. There is something very therapeutic about how beautiful this property is. Well maintained lounges, pools and lawns. Despite just recommencing service with an upfront apology letter from George Cooper himself for possible teething issues, the service was exceptional. Their manager Glen was very attentive, looking into matters and constantly being around to help with guests. Despite being short on staff, there was always someone around to service at any given time and helpful suggestions and arrangements to make private quarters away from the other guests (perfect for the COVID phobic) for dining and resting etc. The 2nd pool felt like it belonged to me! The real bonus of the villa was their food. Again, despite being told that they are not at full operations, their Chef Nalaka is a serious star. Having his own vision fort the food he serves, he aspires to appreciate local ingredients and dishes. Special mention for his Vietnamese seafood soup where the broth was on point. His ‘homemade’ passion fruit jam made me closely guard it on my breakfast table and his jack fruit steak, the perfect balance of curry and sweet. I also loved how the ingredients were the hero in his sweet dishes. Loved the soursop cheesecake and coconut ice cream. He really is talented and Colombo should consider dropping in for a meal, which are btw his own inventions. To make this review more realistic, here are few negatives mentions. Inability to have a liquor license as the property is in close premises to a temple. I did see liquor on tables so don’t forget to take your own. I was a bit disappointed that the head office had allowed for a day package for a group. They were stationed mainly at the Ambalama (a little rest area with a roof next to the pool). They were not allowed to play cricket on the beautifully maintained lawn and they were restricted to the area which means for someone like me who wanted privacy and quiet, the main pool area was completely off limits for a day. The little 2nd pool made do…so this wasn’t a big issue. The bar area was pretty and I was told provides a quiet dining location for those who don’t want to use the main restaurant. But there was a big party of 23 who were mainly hosted there and hence off limits for the party of 1 (me). Nothing to worry, the staff overly compensated this making arrangements to serve me at any other private place I would like to have my meals. The restaurant is in the back, so make the request for dining outside under the moonlight, in fresh air and with sea breeze and sounds of waves crashing, well, need I say more. Overall a lovely and safe holiday. Thanking the staff and management for making it perfect for me.

Thank you so much for your very flattering review of the hotel - and luckily it seems the two negatives were not really teething problems - phew! I completely understand when travelling alone - as I often do - how a large group can be intimidating and somewhat impinge on your space. However I am so pleased that the staff compensated for this and arranged a more private space for you. We are so fortunate to have Glen as our Manager, and Nalaka as our Chef. Nalaka and I have been working together for the past few months and trying to create something different whilst mainly using local produce from local suppliers. This way we can support the local community and hopefully show a more novel way of preparing Sri Lankan cuisine. Thank you for coming to stay, and hopefully Colombo will listen to you! With best wishes

we were two families suddenly decided to come for lunch, Nothing can be better than a good lunch at a beautiful place like this. Everything was perfect and beyond our expectations. Great location, quality of food far above mouth watering sea food dishes local black pork curry recipe remains same after one year, curry flavored crab meat soup all pizza and pasta dishes accurate weight quality and taste is divine I have experienced most of the places we go out for lunch now a days service is very slow due lack of staff or staff is very lazy service is very slow. Hat off to the food and beverage and culinary team superior fast service kids foods adults food course by course accurately on time. all are Very professional we will definitely come back.
