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!

  • Hi - now back.
    In short it was a great holiday with very very little to fault. Location on Lopud was perfect for family and accommodation was exactly as you said ‘simple’ clean and comfortable hosted by a wonderful friendly local family ...all 1min walk from the front. Great breakfast that was straight from the garden in part and always abundant.
    Our guide Nina was excellent always putting our safety first and adapting the itinerary to suit weather. She was a great host with the two families in our group and went out her way to keep us informed and even take photos to share when we were out on the water.
    Transport arrangements were spot on - always there waiting at airport or ferry! Slight confusion that it wasn’t a TourDust sign but that was quickly solved.
    Kayaking was a great adventure and a challenge some days but worth it for the stops on other islands and opportunities to swim, dive and explore caves. I suspect it could be a long day if your child is too young or not such a ‘water baby’ as once your in the kayak your in it! It is also a hefty bit of exercise on a two person kayak if the child in front isn’t up for paddling! I was fine except on one or two occasions where it was a bit of a struggle and I had to persuade him to do some more paddling for me.
    Finally, your service has been great since we got in touch especially as it was a last minute decision for us to go. The speed in responding to queries on a personal basis and quickly was really great (very unusual these days!)
    All in all a great holiday - my 11 year old had a great adventure he will talk about for years! So will I....

  • We had a fabulous holiday thank you! Everything went very smoothly - accommodation was good, breakfast fantastic! The kayaking was great - really well thought out schedule with plenty of rests and time to relax. Lovely meals out.

    Just wanted to add that our guide Nina was excellent. She worked really hard to ensure the whole trip went smoothly and that we were all happy with the pace, including giving the boys plenty of opportunities for jumping in off the cliffs!!

    All in all a great trip! And all the admin side of things has been very efficient throughout.

    Thank you so much!!

  • Hi, just back home now as stayed in London last night. It was fab! We loved it! Amazing all round- Thankyou. Best holiday ever!!!

    Accommodation great at both places, guides lovely, staff great. We saw more animals than ever expected: giraffes, lion, elephants, water hog, wilder beast, impala, white rhino, crocodiles, hippos in lake Sybia, monkeys in trees at Tonga.

    Beach beautiful, but a bit windy, waves v rough but didn’t deter my boys. We snorkeled which was fab but too rough on day we booked to do ocean experience.

    My boys swam in all pools!!!

    Weather better than we expected!

    Must go and do some laundry, but hope that helps?

    Best Nicola
