Pool Area At Bethany 101

Bethany 101

A heritage house with a family feeling in Wilpattu, Sri Lanka

Relax in a green oasis of calm

Let the frangipani trees sway and take you back to a bygone era of vintage luxury

Built over 170 years ago on the shores of Puttalam, this heritage house replicates luxury from the era of old Ceylon. The six rooms in this private retreat are styled with authentic dark wood and a wrap around veranda offers unobstructed views of the gardens and lawns. The beds are really comfy too! This family house makes you feel like you are in someone’s home rather than a hotel, and the friendliness and personalised service ensure a memorable and relaxing stay.

The food served at Bethany 101 is a fusion of traditional and world cuisines, with most of the produce sourced locally from nearby villages and towns, and the fish comes freshly straight from Puttalam Lagoon.

Whilst staying at Bethany 101, why not take a 25 minute drive up to Wilpattu National Park, which is famous for its natural lakes, leopards, elephants and a wide variety of birds. Or travel half an hour to Kalpitiya where you can go dolphin and whale-watching, or enjoy an excursion to the Puttalam lagoon peninsula for kayaking and spectacular sunsets.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
