Amal Villa Apartments & Rooms
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We stayed here for 3 days before our wedding in Bentota and for another night after.
We also arranged a very comfortable transfer from the airport to Amal Villas through them which was very comfy, reliable and safe.

The service we received here couldn't have been better, the staff are kind, caring and attentive and the manager is very friendly...always checking that you're ok and happy. They will organise any trips and outings you want to do in this area and the restaurant over the road serves amazing food with really big portions.

They were very kind to even give us a small wedding gift on our departure which we were very touched by.

We would definitely recommend staying here for the feel of luxury with a mid range budget.

Room Tip: Aim for the downstairs rooms with their own balcony and eating area

We stayed here for 4 nights and had the most amazing time. Set back from the road, this place is a great location as the beach is just a short walk away and the pool is right on your door step. We stayed in the room directly facing the pool which we'd definitely recommend. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are exceptional - they couldn't do enough for us. The breakfasts were delicious and the evening meal at Amal's restaurant were brilliant - plenty to choose from including delicious seafood. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in Bentota. Plus, there's a tea shop just across the road!

It is hard to recommend Amal Villa high enough.
It has a beautifull landscaped garden where tree squirrels,mongoose and an amazing variety of birds frolic and fly. The rooms are immaculate and have great views of the surrounding nature, the resturant is rightly so counted as one of the best in the area (would recommend at least HB).Generally it really is a superb place to stay.The service from the staff is on another plane, i have NEVER experienced better service than from the Amal team.

Room Tip: Upper floor south side

Our group (2 couples) visited Sri Lanka last year and travelled all around - ending up at Amal Villa. This year we went back and spent our entire time at this wonderful establishment. It really is hard to find superlatives that do Amal Villa justice. It was perfect in every way. The rooms, the pool, the garden, the staff, the friendliness, the food, the service, the value for money etc etc were 5* - without the 5* prices. I get the impression that the first time we went we were tourists who chose well - during our second trip we were treated like old friends. I unreservedly recommend this to any discerning traveller

I'm giving this hotel a 5 star review because of the value for money it offers. We stayed in room 4 which is huge and has the most amazing balcony overlooking the back of the property across the gardens to the pool. I agree with a previous reviewer that there is some road noise, but we really didn't notice it that much, it is possible to tune it out. There's really not that much traffic at night anyway. That reviewer also complained about the hard bed - yes it is a bit firm, but again this depends on your personal preference. Rather than finding the room 'dark and oppressive' we found it cool and airy. The ceiling is in dark wood and the walls painted white. It's a simple room, and like most hotels in Sri Lanka, the lights are not overly bright. The main positives about the villa were that it was spotlessly clean and maintained to a high standard - some hotels (even ones that are much more expensive) tend to get a bit shabby with the ravages of the monsoon seasons, and can feel a little damp - however, Amal Villa was pristine, and the towels and beds were changed every day.The breakfasts are simple, but excellent quality with the most amazing fruit platter. The restaurant was friendly and there was a good atmosphere. Yes, there is an up charge for some dishes, but generally the food is excellent, you would pay a comparative fortune for the quality of seafood in other places. You can't expect perfection for 95 euros a night half board for 2 people, but the 5 star location, grounds and pool made it almost perfect!

We stayed at amal villa for 5 nights (two adults and a baby) and we loved it. The pool, the staff, the beach and the food were all above our expectations! We would recommend this place to anyone staying in bentota, but if you are travelling with children you should book one of the rooms with terrass.

We had a blissful week staying at Amal Villa, in room 2 which has a view of the fabulous garden and pool. For the cost, this place is incredible. The room with a/c is spacious with a large, wetroom style bathroom. The garden is a haven of peace and tranquility and is immaculately kept. The swimming pool overlooks open land, and in the evening you can see fruit bats and a mongoose in the garden. The service is excellent - a lovely breakfast is served at whatever time you want it. We did not want to leave ! An additional advantage is the proximity to the beach, and the first rate restaurant.
