Bethany 101,


Price From :


Bethany 101 is a charming six-bedroom boutique villa fronting the vast Puttalam Lagoon. Built in 1836 by a Moorish family from Puttalam, this fully-refurbished villa has been in the family for generations and maintains its traditional architecture of ornate doors and windows, wrap-around veranda, wooden floors and high ceilings. Beautifully-restored antique furniture, brass urns, porcelain plates and vases are all reminiscent of the glorious lifestyle of a bygone era, blended seamlessly with modern day comforts. Bethany 101 offers well-appointed rooms, which open out to the rear gardens or have lagoon views, sumptuous traditional cuisine and a laid back, informal setting that feels like home. The villa can be booked by the room or as a whole and can accommodate up to 12 guests. Families with children are welcome.


There are six ensuite bedrooms, of which three (including the luxurious Master Suite) are accessed through the living room. The remaining rooms are located towards the rear and open out to the veranda and landscaped gardens. Interiors are comfortably-furnished with twin or king-sized antique four-poster beds fitted with mosquito netting. Rooms have a/c, overhead fans and ensuite bathrooms with h/w showers.

Meals are prepared with fresh village vegetables and seafood, including prawns and crab from the lagoon. Only Halal meats are used in the preparation of meals and pork is not served.
