Welcome to

Nisala Arana


Nisala Arana, a luxury boutique hotel set amidst lush greenery and spacious tropical gardens, only minutes from the beach. The Doctor's House, Coconut & Mango Villas offer six beautifully appointed colonial style bedroom suites. The freshwater pool, yoga inspiring gardens and open pavilion where delicious cuisine is accompanied by fine wines, make this hotel one of the finest discoveries in Sri Lanka.

Nisala Arana is set on four and a half acres of beautiful tropical gardens five minutes from the wide sandy beaches of Bentota. The former home of the famous village Ayurveda Doctor, the property has now been styled as a charming and exclusive Boutique Hotel.

The property, dappled with fruit and medicinal trees, palms and orchids is a sanctuary for native and migratory tropical birdlife. Expansive views of the property are offered from all three villas and overlook the raised colonnaded pavilion and freshwater swimming pool.

Enjoy a pot of Ceylon tea, an Iced Lime Juice or a snack in the Pavilion Cafe. Laze in the sun or under the shade of frangipani beside the pool. A library, hammocks, lawn games and badminton/volleyball court are a few more activities to be enjoyed within the property. Bicycles and our private Trishaw are also available for short trips and exploring the local area.
