I chanced upon this place while looking for off-beat places to stay near Bentota and I am so glad that I did! It's a paradise in the true sense- an idyllic estate tucked away in the middle of lovely gardens and overlooking the Dedduwa lake.
Well done rooms, exemplary service and exceptional food is what I will remember about the place. Even the little things like the holder for the water bottle in the rooms, the making of the beds every evening, laying the table for all meals are done very tastefully! Both me and my cousin are vegetarians and they took this into account and served us a Sri Lankan treat everyday. All meals were very thought out and delicious! The friendly staff was also able to help us with tips on places to visit and arrange for cabs for us. They were very efficient and did not read a reminder about anything.
The rooms have all the modern amenities like air conditioning, hot and cold showers, hair dryer etc. The place does not have any wi-fi and the network is also erratic, so it's truly an escape. I used my time to walk and explore the estate, the gardens, read under the trees and enjoyed my time away from the city. So go here for this, to spend some quality time with your loved ones or with yourself. I am sure to visit again!
