“Casa Siena - the gem of Bentota!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

Casa Siena is the gem of Bentota!

Casa Siena is boutique B & B with beautiful, individualized rooms situated in stunning grounds with immaculate greenery and tranquility. It is perfectly located 50 metres from the beach and next door to some wonderful restaurants.

We stayed at Casa Siena over the festive period for eight days. Erol and Evelynn were the perfect hosts whose warm, inviting personalities made the stay at Casa Siena extra special. We stayed in Casa Siena for the majority of the time as the setting makes for tranquil hideaway devoid of package tourists.

Erol's breakfasts are amazing! He cooked up a wonderful breakfast with wonderful collection spices and some fantastic Sri Lankan tea.

The grounds of the hotel and the rooms are cleaned everyday and the staff were extremely friendly.

This was out second time to Bentota but our first time to Casa Siena and we will most definitely be going back. I would recommend Casa Siena to the seasoned traveller who wants that personal touch with a bit of luxury.

A fantastic place manged by some fantastic people!

Room Tip: Ask for room number 9 - the super luxury room facing the beach at the end of the grounds.

What a perfect place! First I booked only four days at Casa Siena, just to return back for another three nights.Casa Siena is a small hotel or B&B with only 8 or 9 rooms, every room is nicely furnished and spotlessy clean, each with either balcony or patio.
It's Errol and his stuff that makes it perfect - he is a thoughful and charming host, always busy to provide you with moscito coil, to set up the sunshade for you or serve tea and beverages. He has turned this beautiful villa into a stylish and elegant, though relaxed and easy place with interior from all over the world. Casa Siena is highly recommended to everybody who is seeking for perfect hospitality.

We spend five days in this wonderful and relaxed spot and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff took very good care of us and maintained a high standard in cleanliness and general service. The location very close to a fantastic beach couldn't be better, and the very few trains that ran by the hotel did not create any disturbance. We can highly recommend spending your holiday at this hotel.

My wife and I were on a 8 week honeymoon trip around India and Sri Lanka. Bentota wa our final destination before home so we wanted somewhere luxury. The lonely planet mentioned Taruvillas Taprobana - when we turned up, it had changed name to Casa Siena and had scaled down somewhat, to become a quiet, secluded spot with swimming pool, right next to a quiet stretch of beach, with limited staff and limited interruption. It almost felt like we had rented our own private villa, We had never realised such places existed, particularly in touristy areas such as Bentota. An added bonus was the excellent breakfast and hospitality provided by the host. Far better for us than the place that was described in the Lonely planet. Very reasonably priced as well - a great find.

My partner and I initially chose casa siena for the proximity to the beach and instead we found paradise on earth for our 3 night stay in Sri Lanka. We would definitely recommend this secret gem to our best friends!

What stands out is the beautiful setting, architecture of the buildings, rooms and gardens, the attentive and discreet host and the proximity to a wonderful, relatively secluded beach (50 meters from the back door of the garden without any road in between).

Casa siena is a small hotel with 9 rooms, each carefully and individually designed. The whole complex was designed by a swiss architect and is of very high quality. It is elegant yet makes you feel at home. There is a careful use of good quality materials in the architecture of casa siena: the pool is carefully designed with beautiful blue tiles; wood and stone, glass and metal are the predominant materials used for the careful and discreetly designed objects and structures on the property. You will have a hard time to find anything made of plastic on the entire property.

The rooms are very pretty, full of details and are arranged in a way to give you privacy even while keeping the doors open to the terrace or garden. There is no AC in any of the buildings but the architecture caters for good natural ventilation and there are authentic vintage ceiling fans if needed. I personally prefer this to AC and appreciated this while never feeling too hot either.

There is a beautiful pool in the garden. You can literally slide from the breakfast table into the pool. The pool is large enough to do sportive laps but in general invites you to linger lazily while sipping one of the wonderful fresh fruit juices or cocktails Errol so well prepares.

Casa siena is right next to the beach and at 50 meters distance you find a wide stretch of beautiful sandy beach that you have nearly to yourself - you can then walk in either direction for some 15 minutes to reach two large luxurious hotel complexes and enjoy the bars there for a drink - so you really get both, your own stretch of beach and some more animated places nearby to discover.

The owner Errol is the perfect host. Always there to help and inform but always discreet and careful to leave you the privacy you want for your vacation. Errol is also a great source for any advice on nearby things to do and see and places to go out for dinner - he is good at understanding what it is that you are looking for and can advice on anything from a luxurious restaurant to the best food place to meet the locals.

We appreciated that a staff member of the hotel has a tuc tuc and you can rent it for an honest rate and get around to all the nearby area without having to engage in what is fun but at times tiresome haggling.

There is also club villa and the paradise villa only a 3 minute walk along the beach and while we enjoyed having them close by to try out lunch at their restaurant once, we were enthusiastic about having made the right choice for us at casa siena which turned out to be a tropical paradise to which we hope to return soon.

Room Tip: all rooms are very pretty. we had the chance to see also some of the other rooms and particularely l...

This hotel is an amazing secluded piece of paradise. After a somewhat stressful few hours with our ‘driver’ we arrived at Casa Siena where we were warmly greeted by the owner, Errol. We found Errol’s hospitality to be excellent, ensuring that we had everything that we needed.

The hotels unique style and design blends into the unspoilt surrounding environment making it the perfect place to unwind. Just beyond the end of the hotels gardens lies a railway where you will occasionally see the local train pass. The sight of the train passing and the palm trees swaying to the tune of the sea feels like stepping back in time!

We will defiantly go back and stay there. Our trip in April took us around most of the country within one week! Very rushed. As we think we have now seen all we want to in Sri Lanka we will come back and stay at Casa Siena only.

We found this fantastic place on our return to Bentota. After travelling around Sri Lanka we decided it was our favourite beach resort & did we drop lucky with Casa Siena. The owners are excellent hosts, with many years of experience in the hospitality trade, & it really shows, they could not do enough to make our stay memorable. We were shown a sample of rooms to choose from, all were lovely, I could honestly have stayed in any, but we had a choice & opted for a lovely room with a large private terrace overlooking the little railway tracks & the sea. It was so relaxing with the occasional excitement of a passing train to wave at. The bedroom & large shower room was very clean, bed was huge & so comfy, good lighting & storage. Breakfast was a la carte & served & prepared by our hosts, it was superb. Fabulous, clean pool, lovely gardens,a lovely home, & great value, we loved it.
