Introduction

No 1 Indian Ocean is a wonderful holiday retreat set close to an estuary where the Bentota River meets the shimmering seas. The property consists of two chalets opening out to the tranquil river.

By dusk, stroll across to the beach and take in the spectacular sunsets. No 1 Indian Ocean is rented to one party exclusively and can accommodate up to eight guests.
