The Villa Bentota is the newest in Shanth Fernando’s Paradise Road portfolio and epitomizes the quality, style and luxury for which his brand has become well-known. The Villa Bentota started life more than 30 years ago when Geoffrey Bawa converted the charming ancestral home that stands on the property into a boutique hotel which was until recently named Villa Mohotti.
Guestrooms extend the entire width of the property and with terraces and balconies overlooking the extensive manicured tropical gardens it means that privacy and exclusivity are completely achievable. Plenty of staff are on hand to look after your every whim whether you need something brought to your gorgeous guestroom or if you need attention beside one of the two glorious sun-drenched swimming pools, atop cushions in the sea-view ambalama or from somewhere else in the spacious tropical garden.
Each of The Villa’s rooms and suites exude Paradise Road style and are designed to comfort and indulge. Each guestroom is unique in layout and décor, though share similar facilities of air-conditioning, king-sized beds dressed in soft Egyptian cotton sheets, feather pillows and en-suite bathrooms with a delicious range of toiletries. Most guestrooms also have a balcony, terrace or courtyard.
The hotel’s restaurant The Villa Café follows in the footsteps of the famed Gallery Café in Colombo by offering a menu of similarly delicious and varied dishes including their trademark coffees and wickedly tempting desserts.
The Villa Bentota is a delightful haven of comfort and tranquility.
