The Paradise Road Villa Bentota – Ep 1

Completely restored by its new owner Udayshanth Fernando, The Villa Bentota was designed and once owned by Geoffery Bawa. It was also the first boutique hotel in Sri Lanka.

Displaying flourishes of Geoffery Bawa’s Tropical Modernism style, The Paradise Road Villa Bentota is a charming getaway that speaks of understated elegance. Originally a dilapidated ancestral home, Geoffery Bawa purchased this property and converted it into a boutique hotel.

Purchased by Udayshanth Fernando of the Paradise Road group in 2007, the property underwent extensive renovation and additions that included a new wing and entrance pavilion, a second swimming pool and also manicured gardens. However, the design of the hotel continues to be extremely sensitive to Geoffery Bawa’s original sensibility and retains a very unique private charm.
