Sri Villas at Benota Beach in Sri Lanka
9 May 2011
This is one of Sri Lanka’s best venues for entertaining large groups. Each villa is self-contained, giving individuals or family units their own privacy. But the shared spaces, including the large tropical garden and pool, provide a focus for communal activities.
There are genuine smiles from the helpful efficient staff, who are experienced in dealing with the individual needs of guests. One staff member is assigned to each villa for continuity and ease.
Great food with lots of choice is available at all times. Fresh juices in the fridge allow you to help yourself. Prepare your own meals in your villa’s kitchen, or delight in the wonderful cooking of the staff. You can either pay your food bills via a grocery system, where the staff does the shopping for you, or pay a daily full-board fee.
A little gate at the front of Sri Villas leads onto a wide, golden beach that it mostly deserted except for the odd fisherman, the occasional turtle and a scattering of strollers at sunset. Swimming and body-boarding is good during the November to April season, and the lap pool is always inviting.
The three spacious villas can be rented individually or together, to accommodate up to 20 guests. Bentota Beach is on the west coast of Sri Lanka, only a ten-minute drive from the famous resort of Bentota.
