When you get off the main road and enter a small dirt road to reach the hotel, one gets a bit concerned. All concerns vanish when you arrive at the sparkling white compound of the Villa. The hotel is quiet, but welcoming. We were ushered to our ground floor suite which was stunning. Large is an understatement. Nice terrace, quiet and very private. The Villa sits on immaculate lawns. The dining room, we understand, is a converted stable. The food was good as was the attention and service. I refused to leave the comfort of the hotel the 2 nights there, except for a very short drive to see the handicrafts at Bentota. I really welcomed the serenity and calmness that the property brought to me. A truly exceptional experience in a truly excellent hotel.
