Bethany 101

Near Wilpattu National Park | First Class

Combining old-world charm with up-to-date comfort, Bethany 101 is a cosy boutique retreat from where you can explore Wilpattu National Park and the laid-back beaches of Kalpitiya. With only a handful of guests staying at any one time, the hotel’s flexible and personal service can be tailored to suit the needs of anyone from honeymooning couples to energetic families.

The single-storey accommodation encircles an immaculate lawn area and outdoor pool. Patio doors open onto a sheltered terrace, where you can sit and soak up the morning sun. There is ideal space for families, with a dedicated play area complete with a tree-house and swing to keep little ones happy, and plenty of room for children to run about whilst staying safely within sight. The family-friendly ethos is continued in all areas of the resort, which even offers kids complimentary milkshakes whenever they wish!

The villa-style buildings have been carefully restored and decorated to bring out their colonial elegance; long, low armchairs call out for leisurely afternoons relaxing in the lounge, and the combination of antique furnishings, dark wood and traditional Sri Lankan artefacts give an atmosphere of 1930s chic. The suites are cool and calm; elaborate four-poster beds, draped with delicate curtains, stand out. The en suites have a vintage look with the addition of antique-style fixtures giving the sharp, modern facilities an authentic charm.

Combining cuisines from all over Asia, the chef creates an array of different dishes each night using locally-sourced ingredients, including fresh fish from Puttalam lagoon. Enjoy eating al fresco on the terrace, the spices in your meal mingling with the warm evening air, for a dining experience with a dash of old-world sparkle.

We Say
Bethany 101 offers the best of both worlds: a Puttalam lagoon side location with easy access to Wilpattu National Park and the beaches of Kalpitiya.
