Janus Paradise Rest
Ranked #18 of 25 Hotels in Bentota
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Me and my husband intially wanted to stay at Janu's for two nights but after staying there we decided to stay right up until we left Sri Lanka! The room was lovely, lot's of space and very clean. The breakfast was lovely and was included in the price of 3800 rupees, which was amazing value for money compared to other places we stayed in Sri Lanka for the same price. Janu has a lovely little pool and the hotel grounds are always kept immaculate. They have a high rise restuarant and beach cabannas to eat dinner. We felt like very valued customers and enjoyed every minute of staying there. I highly recommend staying here. We thank Janu very much for making our holiday :)

My husband I stayed at Janu's for three nights. We felt very welcomed and at home. The beachfront pad is very relaxing. The pool is nice and breakfast was egg, toast, jams, fresh juices, tea/coffee. We paid 3800rs a night for a double rm with a fan during high season. We had a large balcony and the whole place was immaculate. The only negative comment I have is that it's on Galle rd. which is convenient for many reasons, but it is quite noisey.

Janu is the man who runs the place and he will treat you like his friend if you are like minded. Easy going and relaxed, our two night getaway from Colombo was great because it was like we had an extra friend to hang out with! He really knows how to surround himself with a great team of staff who were so helpful. Janu himself really cares for his guests as he asked quite a few times if we were happy throughout the weekend. Any issue was attended to quickly.

We had a dinner then a campfire on the beach one night which was probably one of the best nights I've had in Sri Lanka. A campfire, on the beach! This place benefits from a great location being in between two houses that separates his place from the resorts near by. The beach is quiet and pretty friendly. The only thing noisy is that the main door to the rooms face Galle Road so it can be a bit noisy with the trucks and buses that roll by. Our room also smelled a little funky, but nothing we couldn't deal with. Overall, my friends and I were really happy with our stay!

Room Tip: The upstairs three rooms are the best ... there are only 4 rooms in total anyhow so your chances of...

Janus Paradise Rest is owned and run by Janus himself. He is very helpful, kind and friendly and so are all his staff. Janus speaks excellent English. His brother who helps out at the resthouse also doubles up as tuk-tuk driver which is very helpful. Although the cook was on holiday during our stay, Janus and his team produced excellent curries for us and also Western dishes such as delicious pasta for the children. Paradise Rest is set right on the beach and it also benefits from a lovely little pool. Everything is kept spotlessly clean. If you're looking for a luxury option this is not the place for you, but if you want a clean and friendly place to stay on Induruwa beach I don't think you can get better value than this. From Janus Paradise Rest you can easily visit the turtle hatcheries on the coast and take a boat tour on the Bentota Gange to see water monitors and crocodiles. Janus' brother will happily drive you to any of those places and also take you to a nice lunch spot on the way (try Susantha's for great freshly made pizza). If you're after peace and quiet, note that all the hotels on this stretch of beach (including the expensive ones!) are very close to the road and the train line so it can get pretty noisy. Janus was planning to build some quieter family rooms closer to the beach at the time of our visit.
