Bentota, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

Enjoy the beach vacation of your dreams at Rock Villa, an enchanting 170 year-old heritage vacation home.

Set in a dreamy coastal setting, the villa presents a picture-perfect sight made up of emerald greenery, swaying palms, golden coasts and azure seas.

It is situated on a beautiful, un-crowded stretch of coastline, tranquil enough to attract nesting turtles and a vibrant and audible birdlife – a rarity along the highly populated Southern and Western coasts of Sri Lanka.

Spread out over 2.5 acres of flawlessly manicured beach front property, this private tropical garden brings you closer to the heart and soul of a place where everything just seems alright; every modern luxury at your fingertips and every sunset within your reach.

With the sweet smell of frangipani floating about the sea air, you may choose to take your place on one of many lazy colonial armchairs, sunbeds or hammocks as you are waited on by skilled hands and warm smiles.

Perhaps you will choose to take a refreshing dip on a hot day, in an expansive pool that curls seductively towards the lapping waves like a carpet of rich turquoise.

Maybe you will find your place in the vast garden punctuated by pockets of cool shade from the wavy palm trees that watch from above.

Take just a few steps through the shady greenbelt of mangroves that curve around you like a tropical guard of honour, and you will discover the magic of Sri Lanka’s southern coastline in all its glory and intimate splendor.

Bentota is one of the most popular towns in Sri Lanka with stunning views of the Indian Ocean, and since it is located in the Galle District, guests are free to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Galle Fort.
In and around Kosgoda, there’s plenty to do culturally, historically and recreationally. Bentota’s fine stretch of sand is great for swimming from October to April, and with care at other times of year.
The main beach has lifeguards, so look out for flags. The stretch to the south is prettier and quieter though not so good for swimming.
Eco boat rides through the mangroves, water skiing, antique hunting and temple explorations are some of the best-loved local offerings.
While the historic town of Galle – with its charmingly restored boutique hotels, cobbled streets and glorious ramparts – is just an hour’s car journey away.

Planning your Sri Lanka Experience
AIRPORT TRANSFERS
Depending on the number of guests arriving at once, a variety of vehicle options are available including saloon cars, 4 wheel drives, and people carriers, as well as fixed wing sea planes and helicopters.
GUIDED CYCLING
Sometimes the simpler things in life provide the greatest pleasure. Guided bike tours through the lush green paddy fields give a glimpse of an often unseen part of Sri Lanka. Marvel at kingfishers and bee-eaters, glimpse the daily rituals of village life or just enjoy the cool breeze of free-wheeling through a magnificent landscape. This has been a longtime top excursion.
WELCOME BASKETS
There’s nothing better after a long journey than delicious smells coming from the kitchen and a few bottles chilling in the fridge. We will send you the villa menus and work with the best suppliers to produce a fantastic collection of wines and champagnes to complement any palette. Wines need to be paid for in advance of arrival.
KANDYAN DANCERS / BUDDHIST BLESSINGS
An intimate front row seat of the unique Kandyan Dancers – expect back-flips, drums, masks and fire display – all from the comfort of the villa. Most villas have a shrine and guests can benefit from a visit by Monks from a nearby Temple to conduct a blessing for a gentle and moving experience.
WHALE WATCHING
From December to April Whales and dolphins, including the mighty Blue Whale, can be seen off the southern coast. Seeing one of the largest animals on earth in one of the most agreeable temperatures is a truly amazing experience. We always recommend a private boat so that guests can swim or snorkel before coming ashore.
SAFARI
Udewalawa and Yala are the big two and offer fantastic game viewing of Leopards, Elephants, Buffalo & Sloth Bears. For birders, SL is a dream destination. Kalametiya and Bandula National Park are a must and some 197 different species of bird will stop here throughout the year.
SUNSET SAILING
Setting out from Mirissa harbor to enjoy the sunset from the comfort of a luxury catamaran has been one of our top-rated experiences. For 3 hours embrace the joys of the ocean, sipping a sundowner or snorkeling. This is an unforgettable experience and one your clients will treasure forever.
