Undoubtedly one of the most renowned beach villas in Sri Lanka, Villa 1397 is an enchanting 170 year-old Walauwa (Heritage House) in a dream beach setting. It is situated on a beautiful, un-crowded stretch of coastline, tranquil enough to attract nesting turtles and a vibrant and audible birdlife - a rarity along the highly populated Southern and Western coasts of Sri Lanka. Spread out over 2.5 acres of flawlessly manicured beach front property, this private tropical garden brings you closer to the heart and soul of a place where everything just seems alright; every modern luxury at your fingertips and every sunset within your reach. This reassuringly spacious design, as you might expect from one of most celebrated villas, is a feast for the senses and the soul.
With the sweet smell of frangipani floating about the sea air, you may choose to take your place on one of many lazy colonial armchairs, sunbeds or hammocks as you are waited on by skilled hands and warm smiles. Perhaps you will choose to take a refreshing dip on a hot day, in an expansive pool that curls seductively towards the lapping waves like a carpet of rich turquoise. Maybe you will find your place in the vast garden punctuated by pockets of cool shade from the wavy palm trees that watch from above. Take just a few steps through the shady greenbelt of mangroves that curve around you like a tropical guard of honour, and you will discover the magic of Sri Lanka's southern coastline in all its glory and intimate splendor.

Villa 1397, in Bentota, is reached by passing through Aluthgama Town when heading south along the Galle Road. Passing over the main Aluthgama/Bentota Bridge, keep going till you see the 62nd kilometre post. The turn off Galle Road, a narrow road on your right called Nileesgewatte Road, is approximately 900 metres after the 62nd Kilometre Post.
