Villa Republic Bentota,


Price From :


Villa Republic Bentota is an entrancing private villa set on the banks of the Bentara River. Rooms and living spaces open to the swimming pool and river beyond. Owned by a Sri Lankan entrepreneur and lifestyle designer, Villa Republic Bentota has striking décor, including a collection of memorabilia and rare black and white photographs of political figures such as Che Guevera and Lenin, as well as icons from music and sport like The Beatles and Muhammad Ali. Bedrooms are themed accordingly, named Boxing Room, Beatles Room, Liberation Room, and Vietnam Room, decorated with black and white photography from the owner’s private collection. Guests should be mindful that the pictures do not necessarily represent the political views of the owner! Spend a tranquil day by the poolside or go jet-skiing on the Bentara River, or head to the sandy beaches of Bentota, just a short boat ride away. Villa Republic can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests and is booked on a villa-only basis.


There are four standard bedrooms and a spacious suite, all with a/c, overhead fans and furnished with double beds. Ensuite bathrooms have h/w rain showers.

Standard Bedrooms: These rooms are located in pairs on either side of the dining area and open to the swimming pool. The interiors follow varied themes. There is the `Boxing Room’ with photographs of boxing legend Muhammad Ali and other memorabilia; `Beatles Room’ with images of John Lennon and posters reminiscent of the 1960s Beatles mania; `Liberation Room’ depicting the freedom struggle of the former Soviet Nation, and finally the `Vietnam Room’ which displays intriguing art from Vietnam’s revolutionary period.

Suite: This spacious bedroom is separate from the rest of the house providing more privacy and opens on to a deck overlooking the river. Interior is furnished with a king-sized four poster bed.
