Squirreled away amid a peaceful landscape in Bentota, ‘Minnehaha’ offers a birdsong-swept vacation, for the dreamer and peace-seeker.

Best Known For

Tucked opposite a bird sanctuary and nature reserve, this dreamy holiday home in Bentota captures unparalleled views of the breathtaking Dedduwa Lake and bordering mangrove beds. From rambling the sleepy, brown woods, to sunset-gazing from the pool, the stay experience at ‘Minnehaha’ is threaded with a ‘time-stands-still’ appeal.

The Experience

Woven around an open concept, the villa delightfully merges into the surrounding landscape and natural light. At the Main House, 3 cosily-appointed bedrooms, one of which features a private courtyard, share a spacious living and dining area. The Suite that comes with its own private pool and a dining room overlooking the lake, is perfect for couples seeking sequestration. Each accommodation at ‘Minnehaha’ is furnished with a cosy king size bed.

Guests can choose from Western and Sri Lankan breakfasts or get their meal customized to accommodate dietary requirements. Bike hire is available for those wishing to explore the nearby villages on two wheels.

Around and About

Between its natural inland waterways and the aquamarine brine, Bentota has earned an apt moniker as the ‘water sports capital’ of Sri Lanka. Bentota’s fabled ocean waters draw windsurfing, jet skiing and surfing aficionados to its golden beaches while the Bentota River with lush mangrove forests and tiny islands mesmerizes the nature lover. The leafy Brief Gardens and the art-filled galleries of the Lunuganga Estate transports one to a world of romance.

Watching from your sanctuary, on a summer’s eve, a rosy sunset lies over the Dedduwa Lake; a memory to go back to, for months to come…
