Rock Villa, Bentota
A charming 170 year old heritage house, Rock Villa is situated on a deserted stretch of beach in Bentota, peaceful enough to attract a vibrant bird life and nesting turtles. This spectacular boutique hotel is spread out over nearly 3 acres of tropical gardens, designed to evoke a sense of tranquility and seclusion. The hotel features long verandas, and several airy open spaces for relaxation. Interiors are furnished with antiques, plush seating, and colourful textiles combined with statement art and vases of fresh flowers placed in every corner. The original house consists of two bedrooms and a living area opening out to the gardens, whilst 4 new rooms and a lounge area blend in seamlessly with the old structure. A spacious dining pavilion overlooks the sparkling blue pool and gardens that lead down directly to the beach. The beach here is fairly secluded, and safe for swimming during the season between December to April.
