25 OCTOBER 2012 - We touch down in Colombo at 8.20am and we go through immigration. We walk past the duty free shops and we have never seen before they sell washing machines, ovens, fridges, cook tops, irons, TVs etc. No worries visa already sorted and then went through customs, what customs? We met up with our driver from our hotel Wunderbar. We …
I've heard great things about Sri Lanka and given that it's only a 2 hour direct flight from Hyderabad, Tanya and I decided to try and do a quick weekend trip down there for some rest and relaxation. Honestly 2 days isn't really enough time to do Sri Lanka justice as there are loads of things to see and do (elephant orphanage, beaches, mountain tea …
Then the final stop on our tour Bentota – turtle sanctuary where we saw some turtles hatch and Ryan decided that one of them should be called Ryan, poor thing, we can only hope in name and not by nature. Ryan junior who was celebrating his birthday ...
... and there was lots to see. On our last day, just as I was checking for stray items of clothing on our deck, I glanced up and saw a turtle idling by. They really are the most amazing creatures.
After 5 days of island life, we set off, en masse, to Galle in southern Sri Lanka where we had rented a very pretty villa which was once a tea plantation and is surrounded by paddy fields. The birdlife was amazing with bright yellow birds, orange and red birds flitting about. Every ...
... Rice & Curry'is a Sri Lankan speciality and we love it! You get the worlds biggest portion of rice and between 3-5 different kinds of curry dish! And its less then 2 quid! Can't go wrong with that!
Further up the beach from where we're staying is another little beach. The waves aren't as bad as its slightly more of a cove. The water is ridiculously gin clear, there is a coral reef for snorkeling and little boats bob up and down on the waves. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wunderbar Beach Club Hotel Bentota
Charme familial, excellent accueil
C'est petit, c'est familial, il manque certes l'infrastructure d'un grand établissement, mais pr le prix et le cadre, c'est à recommander absolument. L'ambiance décontractée et sympathique ou chaque client est bienvenu et est accueilli avec un grand sourire, tout ça en étant situé sur la magnifique plage quasi déserte de Benotat, c'est le paradis!
My fiancée and I fell upon the Wunderbar Beach Hotel & Restaurant whilst on a recent trip to Bentota Sri Lanka.
I have stayed here many times over last 3 years and always find this unique hotel a pleasure. There are 14 rooms 8 of which are brand new with minibars and tv. I have always stayed in the standard rooms which are much bigger than the major hotels, sparklingly clean and have a kingsize bed decorated with fresh fragipani flowers every morning.
A hidden oasis in paradise
I cannot comment on the hotel itself as I was staying in the next door Club Villa. But when I return to Bentota I will definitely stay at the Wunderbar. It is a lovely laidback place which nestles in the palm trees next to a sweep of untouched, perfect beach and the turtle santuary. The staff are wonderful and made my holiday by organising trips and even my transport back to the airport.
My son, who is 10, adored the bar, Bob Marley music, impromptu drumming and the friendliness of the staff.
We escaped the over quiet, stuffy, overpriced atmosphere of Club Villa each evening to chill in the bar and lap up the friendliness of the Wunderbar. It made our holiday in Bentota.
Wunderbar Beach Club Hotel, Bentota Sri Lanka
21st February 2006
My Husband and I have recently returned from our holiday at the Wunderbar Beach Club Hotel, and we have had the most fantastic holiday of our lives.
The location of the hotel was overlooking a fabulous secluded beach, very picturesque.
The standard fo the room was fantastic, the food was excellent, and the staff made us feel very welcome, and looked after our every need.
We have definitely found our idea of paradise, and we can't wait to return next year.
Fantatsic fantastic fantastic!
I can't recommend this place highly enough. I have travelled a lot in the 3rd world and consider this place in the top grade for what you want (and expect) for a hotel of its kind.
If you are after a rustic setting, with a friedly atmosphere, clean spacious rooms, beautiful food, staff who will go out of their way to orgainse river cruises, beach parties and even (in my case) setting up meetings with real estate agents - Wunderbar is for you.
I stayed there with 7 friends over the Xmas period and they made it an experience I will nevr forget. I hope to return very soon and if you are looking for a place to stay in Bentota - look no further.
Bei diesem Hotel gibt es wirklich nichts zu meckern: sehr geräumige, gut ausgestattete Zimmer und ein Restaurant mit tollem Ausblick und leckerem Seafood.
Große und kleine Ausflugstouren kann man direkt im Hotel buchen und auch sonst ist das Team vom Hotel immer mit Rat und Tat zur Stelle.
Der Strand hinter dem Hotel mit eigenen Liegen ist sehr sauber und schön ruhig. Ideal zum relaxen.
Besonders hervorzuheben ist die tolle familiäre Atmosphäre in diesem Hotel, wo einfach jeder mitgerissen wird.
I found this hotel in the internet on their hp
The best holiday we have ever had...
we would recommend this hotel, for young, just married and mature. what a fantastic time we had. we actually had booked to stay at another hotel along the beach. we discovered the wunderbar the next day and were there the rest of our holiday.It was the atmosphere, daggi welcomed us both into the hotel, he couldn,t do enough he was the perfect host. The food was good, the entertainment into the early hours was excellent, the atmosphere was exceptional. if you wanted to go anywhere daggi would take us, he was wonderful.All the staff went out of their way, i feel that we have made great friends with these people and usually we are sceptical.. they have won us over and they deserve the credit for there hard work.
