At Sri Villas you pass through our tropical garden and find yourself on the most secluded and breathtaking beach. You could be the only person. Go for a swim, play in the waves or just body surf in the warm Indian Ocean. Our large pool allows for both training and fun, with a special shallow area for babies and children. For quieter more passive moments, we have a library of books and a selection of board games.

Yoga Classes

Yoga masters are available for private lessons at Sri Villas. Our beachfront location provides the perfect setting for sunrise or sunset sessions. Whether you would like a personal session or for the whole family to join in, we can arrange the classes accordingly.

Pool Time

Sri Villas has a signature 23 metre pool that works for doing laps or just lounging. We have a shallow section in the middle, perfectly suited and safe for our smaller guests.

Sunset Cocktails

Choose from our selection of classic tropical cocktails and watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean. We also have a curated collection of wines from around the world. Or enjoy that romantic dinner 'a deux', just a whisper away from the breaking waves.

Geoffrey Bawa Country

Lunuganga, the nearby home and exotic garden of Sri Lanka’s world renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, is open to the public. This area was his favorite part of the island and his playground. His brother Bevis's 'Brief' is also worth a visit. Let us arrange a special day to visit a few of these architectural delights.


Take a trip to Hikkaduwa or Unawatuna, for that perfect surf spot. Try out Shirodhara in one of our close-by Ayurvedic spas. Or take the coastal road to the historic city of Galle with its heritage Dutch Fort and international cricket pitch. Personalised river trips to cinnamon plantations; cycling or hiking through local villages and paddy fields can be custom-arranged for you.

Water Sports

Sri Villas is ideally located for those who wish to be active. In Bentota, there is a choice of watersports, including water skiing, scuba diving and a surf school. A day out fishing with 'hampers to go' sounds ideal for the boys!

Turtles in the Wild

The waters around Sri Lanka are teeming with sea life, and we are blessed to share our beach with several different types of sea turtles that regularly visit to nest. Most nights from October to April a rather large turtle will make her way on to our beach to lay hundreds of eggs. Witness this incredible moment....

Bonfires On The Beach

There's no better way to welcome the sunset than to build your own bonfire on the beach. Join us as we build or just sit back and enjoy - the choice is yours. Then wait for the plethora of stars to appear. Spot the galaxies, stars and planets.


Explore the area and find ancient temples. Just 3km inland from Bentota, an unexpected 12th-century temple has some lovely murals and a 2500-year-old dagoba - and the longest sleeping Buddha in Sri Lanka, bullt by King Kasyapa.
