Waterside hotel  Price rating for Waterside hotelPrice rating for Waterside hotel South West



Superb new prestige guesthouse boasting a spectacular view of the Bentota River (ganga) and by night the lit horizon of Bentota and Aluthgama towns.  British owned by retired ex-pat Sue Brodie, the design and brainchild of this super hotel/ restaurant was Sue's business partner, Kamal.  Much experienced in tourism, Kamal recognised this pretty location when it came up and carefully blended open architecture with its jungle surroundings, thereby maximising the views whilst protecting the envorionment and tranquility.

The neighbouring village is home to many friendly communities and yet the hotel is extremely quiet and Kingfishers are a regular sight.

The restaurant is first class with local seafood, a touch of Western influence and a good slection of Western wines. The restaurant enjoys the best views allowing privacy for the neighbouring bedrooms. Waterside claims the best chef in Bentota (despite its size) and its hardly surprising given the huge, open plan and high tech kitchen- any chefs paradise!

The roof top of the hotel, has been carefully designed for a star-lit bar and views across the area. This will be completed with furniture in early 2008. However, have no fear all building work is complete.

There are just 6 spacious bedrooms to Waterside, each with its own verandah and easy chairs for those relaxing sundowners.

Ideal for couples wishing to combine the stunning Bentota beaches with a touch of authentic Sri Lankan living.

Sue and kamal are well respected in the area as they have supported many Tsunami projects.  Local artists who have yet to attain Colombo recognition, have been invited to share their great work in the restaurants- don't miss this opportunity to purchase as many of the canvas paintings are super and very reasonably priced.

  •  Peaceful yet conveniently located
  • Complimentary boat rides to the beach
  • Super pool
  • Excellent fresh seafood
  • Families need to keep a watchful eye on young children due to proximity of river
  • The decor of the bedrooms perhaps lacks the same stylish character of the architecture but is extremely modern and comfortable.
