Panchi Villa Bentota - Guest Book

  • "Great rooms, excellent food"

    This villa is really stunning. There are only 5 or 6 rooms all with large balconies overlooking the pool and nice large and clean rooms. Very relaxing place and just over the railway line and road to the great beach in Bentota. The best thing was the food. We stayed 4 nights and then went back for another 4 nights and only ate out once. They will prepare anything that you want to eat and nothing is too much trouble with all fresh ingredients and was by far the best food we had in Sri Lanka.

  • Don't miss out on this 5 star villa!"

    We stayed at the Panchi Villa for 6 nights and cannot fault this wonderfully pleasant and relaxing stay. From entering the villa to leaving everyone made us feel very welcome. The Owner said treat it like your home and he was not wrong, staff were exceptionally friendly and hospitable.

    The rooms were immaculate and the four poster bed was a treat. The balconies were larger than you usually get and they all overlooked a very clean, pleasant pool in the surroundings of a well kept garden.

    From breakfast to dinner the food was exceptionally good, fresh and always well presented and served with a smile. We found the meals very reasonably priced, we have eaten in many hotels and restaurants in Sri Lanka.

    Owner was always very reliable in organising Tuk-Tuks and trips around the South. Panchi Villa is well postioned to access the railway system and places of interest. We would definately recommend Panchi Villa for that personal touch and much better quality and service than the larger 5 star hotels we have stayed at in Sri Lanka. Sean and Amanda

  • "A really elegant hotel clean and very comfortable"

    We found this hotel by luck, and what a prize, it looks new and has beautiful wooden balustrades with huge private balconies overlooking the garden and lovely pool the owner was very welcoming and we had wonderful meals there. It is near the railway so we can hear the trains, but they dont seem to run at night, it was certainly no problem for us. It is very close to the beach just across the railway and road, and the beach is super.Every one was very helpfull and friendly.

  • "nice clean and new place, nice people"

    we can recommend it, although it is not next to the beach the owner will bring and take you to the beach wit his tuktuk. Some noise of the trafic and trains. Big rooms, new, well maitained and clean.

  • "A comfortable villa on Bentotas south beach"

    Panchi Villa is a good choice for any traveller. Nicely decorated rooms, large balconies, great swimmingpool, pretty garden with plenty of birdlife and good food. Some noise from main road and train tracks, but not really a problem. You have to cross both train tracks and main road to reach the beach.

  • "Best place to stay in Bentota"

    Highly recommended. We stayed there over 5 nights and found the rooms clean, new with balconies overlooking the pool and surrounding greenery. The service was amazing - very friendly staff always willing to help with a smile and the owner is also very helpful in organising transportation or any trip in Sri Lanka. The food is not the cheapest but it is high quality and fresh fish, lobster & shirmp are available. The dining terrace is at a nice surrounding and evrything served be it breakfast, lunch or dinner is fresh and tasty.

    The hotel is not right on the beach - there is a short 100m walk to the beach but because the owners of Panchi and WUnderbar are related it is possible to walk to Wunderbar further down the beach and use their sunbeds and tables, check their turtle farm and drink with the owners there that are also very friendly and helpfull

  • "The perfect place to be"

    We moved out of our originally booked hotel because we discovered this little gem, named Panchi Villa, out of Bentota. What we got there was much more than what we expected. Excellent sea food, warm and friendly people, charming rooms, a very well maintained garden and a king size pool. We are a family of five from Chennai in India. Still we are enjoying the best holiday we ever had. We were not just checking in and out, we found friends in this place. Our kids were very well looked after. If you visit this place with kids you will know what I mean. The Sri Lankans are like we Indians, our kids are our life. We highly recommend this place to everyone. Thank you Chammi and Crew for this unforgettable stay. We will certainly come back and send some of our friends too. Ravi Kumar, Chennai,India

  • Muschel im Grünen!

    Die Panchi Villa ist ein kleines Hotel mit sechs Doppelzimmern (Schlafraum, Bad und Balkon sehr groß), ca. drei Jahre alt. Die kleine Anlage ist von Palmen umgeben, individuell und vom Eigentümer (Chamin) mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail gestalltet! Wir waren zur Nebensaison verreist und teilweise fünf bzw. vier Gäste (Deutsche und Franzosen) im Hotel - in den Wintermonaten ist es jedoch ausgebucht. Man kann die Übernachtung mit Frühstück oder Halbpension buchen - es besteht jedoch immer die Möglichkeit auch zwischendurch etwas zu essen oder zu trinken (Wünsche werden einem von den Augen abgelesen!

  • Honeymoon Destination

    This is one of the best honeymoon places that you would never want to miss out. Awesome food, ambiance, friendly staff and the best location. I had stayed here for 4 nights and completely felt at home. The staffs treat you as you are their family member and would do anything for your requests. If you are visiting Srilanka, then don't miss this hotel.

  • Nice place for nice people

    If do not try to write advertising text that hotel, I get short: hospitality, cleanliness, nice and great service. I remember the wonderful cocktails that makes Samba steward of a local restaurant. I will miss about that in Moscow. Friendly attitude of the staff and of course the beautiful, very beautiful Sri Lanka. Very nice atmosphere and the food. Thank you very much indeed!

  • Wedding / Honeymoon

    We stayed for 16 nights at Panchi Villa this was our destination for our wedding and honeymoon. We travelled as a couple with our 5 year old daughter. The hotel and staff were brilliant and regularly kept our daughter entertained with nature walks around the pool area, the geckos etc can now get some peace now we have left. We stayed in the top floor super luxury room which had a beautiful four poster bed that was huge! The room was plenty big enough even with an extra bed put in. The room was cleaned every day and linen changed I think every 3rd day. The balcony was also very nice and spacious with lovely furniture, none of the plastic white stuff to be seen. We stayed half board and had no complaints about the food at all, you could have what you wanted and were definitly not left hungry. My daughter is a very plain eater and they cooked whatever she wanted every evening. We were able to swim in the pool anytime night or day and our daughter loved the fact she could swim at night. The trips we had from the hotel were good, but we are very sceptical about the turtles at Kosgoda as we felt the owner there was trying to make money from releasing the turtles at night. This I didn't think was any fault of Panchi Villa, but the sanctuary. The turtles at Wunderbar were far better and free! The boat trip was really a good experience and the man who operated the boat was very informative and had excellent eyes for spotting. Onto our wedding - what a fantastic day is all I can say! It was very special and I think the staff added to that. There was only us 3 at the wedding with the exception of the elephant, but it felt like we had guests as they made it really special both during the day and in the evening. The wedding tuk tuk was just brilliant, they all really made an effort to make our day and our stay really special. I could go on and on as I loved it all so much, we are definitly coming back! I would recommend it to anyone and it is certainly a great place to get married! Oh I musn't forget they also do a lovely massage in the ayurvedic centre.
