Avani Bentota Resort & Spa, is designed by world-renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, who took inspiration from an 18th Century Dutch village to create a romantic home-away-from-home with a spectacular beach-side setting.
Saman Villas, Bentota, Sri Lanka
Guest comments on Saman villas include "sheer paradise", "the most fantastic location, the most stunning hotel, served by the most beautiful people and eating the most wonderful food". These speak for themselves. One of the "small luxury hotels of the world", the hotel has an 'infinity' swimming pool and the utmost care and attention has been paid to all facilities and service. A luxurious spa complex has recently been added.
Our opinion: This collection of superb villa style accommodation will appeal most to those seeking peace and style, with a high standard of service. Although superbly equipped, there is little organised entertainment and therefore it is not recommended for clients who would prefer to have a range of diversions.

Another Geoffrey Bawa project, this friendly boutique property will suit most tastes. The rooms are simply decorated with handwoven wall hangings and batiks and look out over a beautifully manicured lawn with palms and flowering tropical trees.
Privacy, a fantastic location and total luxury, The River House is without a doubt one of the best small hotels in Sri Lanka. Situated on the riverbank a couple of kilometres inland and set in lush topical gardens this boutique property blends contemporary comforts with antique splendour.
