Overview

Club Villa is a serene beachside boutique hotel featuring Dutch colonial architecture and decor. Set in lush, verdant gardens, the property is a stone’s throw from the beach, which stretches for over 9km. Styled as a home away from home, Club Villa has a pleasant atmosphere, friendly, welcoming staff and a location that guarantees plenty of peace and privacy. It’s located in the beach resort town of Bentota on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka, about an hour and a half’s drive from the country’s capital, Colombo. 

Each of Club Villa’s 17 air-conditioned guest rooms is individually styled and features a number of furniture pieces from the Dutch colonial period. All rooms come with great views of the beach or the property’s scenic gardens, comfortable bedding, lots of space and plenty of creature comforts. All of Club Villa’s guest rooms offer tranquility and seclusion, and some even have their own private garden. The highest grade of accommodation, the Club Suite, boasts a split-level bathroom, part of which is open-air, with a large jacuzzi, a monsoon shower and twin wash basins. 

Club Villa has an inviting freshwater swimming pool with a jacuzzi. While none of the guest rooms house televisions, there is a communal TV lounge. Comfortable furniture is scattered throughout the hotel’s grounds so guests can unwind and admire the natural beauty of the gardens. There's plenty to do nearby including visiting the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery and helping release baby turtles back into the wild, admiring the botanical wonders at the Bevis Bawa Brief Garden, shopping in Bentota or participating in water sports, such as windsurfing and waterskiing.   

When it comes to dining at Club Villa, guests can look forward to a range of freshly prepared European and Sri Lankan dishes. The restaurant is open-sided and guests can choose to dine under cover out of the sun, or al fresco - for an extra special experience, guests can request a seafood BBQ with accompanying champagne. The lounge and bar offers a range of drinks throughout the day, including king coconuts served by the pool in the morning, and high tea in the afternoon.  

Club Villa welcomes children and offers a babysitting service with an English-speaking sitter. Books and board games are provided and the swimming pool conveniently has a shallow end. All children under the age of 12 receive a 50% discount for meals at the hotel’s restaurant. Parents should be sure to keep an eye on their children when exploring the hotel grounds as there’s an in-use railway line you have to cross to get to the beach. While some visitors find the train line somewhat intrusive, others enjoy waving at passengers as trains go by!

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
