We actually booked this place by accident - we intended to book at the better known Shanthi Villa, which is near Aluthagama Railway station, near the beach - we realized our error much later (after our trip). Nonetheless, we never regretted booking here for one instant.
As a result of the confusion, we had a little difficulty in locating the place, but we called up out host, and consulted a couple of passer-bys, and made it eventually.
Our room was fairly large, and was on the first floor, with an excellent view of trees and vegetation. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean.
Our hosts were extremely gracious, and went well beyond their call of duty. They were very helpful in sorting out our local transport (auto), and got us a bargain price. As it was the first place we stayed at after arriving in Sri Lanka, we had a lot of questions, which our hosts answered patiently, and offered us useful advice.
The food was excellent - the complimentary breakfast was quite lavish, and included a fair spread of fruits. For dinner, we tried a fish curry meal which was excellent as well. Our hosts were also kind enough to pack us some food in lieu of breakfast as we had to leave very early.
The host Pradeep was very kind and friendly. Since his place is a bit out of Bentota, he gave us a motorbike for free and it's quite convenient. His house is very nice, rooms are clean and we had the whole floor for our own privacy. We had breakfasts in the beautiful garden with the best services from his staff. We also had lunches and dinners at his place with lots of delicious food.His staff were awesome, always wanted to take care of us. We also took a day trip to Galle with Pradeep as well as the trip to the airport. His quotation was very reasonable. We had a memorable stay at this place. This review is too short to depict our journey. Amazing Sri Lanka. Highly recommended.
