Is it true that you have a railway line through your property?
Paradise Road The Villa Bentota is located on a very special sprawling 2 acre plot of land which is separated from the beach by a railway line. The train which passes on occasion throughout the day is part of the charm and beauty of this portion of the coast and has become a popular feature for all properties in this area of Bentota. For those are affected by the occasional sound of the train passing, we have non-sea facing rooms which are protected. However, it is a rare occurrence for us to have a guest who complains about it.
It is definitely something which makes the property quite unique and adds to its beauty!
When's the best time to visit Bentota ?
November to April, for the best weather, the lesser chance of rain and usually the best time of year for the sea.
September/October is monsoon season.
Can we shop in Bentota?
Bentota is not an area known for shopping nor are there any recommended shops in the area that we would be able to send you to.
