The Indian version of The Night Manager is only four episodes old but has managed to generate quite the buzz, thanks to the thrilling plot, the actors’ sizzling chemistry and, of course, the stunning visuals. Who can forget the sprawling Sri Lankan villa of the show’s main baddie Shailendra (played by Anil Kapoor). The private beach access, expansive sea views, airy rooms and infinity pools seem almost as irresistible as the main lead and the internet’s current favourite Aditya Roy Kapoor. Wondering where you can find the villa from The Night Manager for your next beach trip? We’ve got the scoop.
Where The Night Manager was filmed
Shailendra’s scenic home is actually the newly renovated Jetwing Saman Villas in Bentota, Sri Lanka. The luxurious boutique hotel is located in the quiet fishing village of Aruwella along the western coast of the island. It houses 26 suites and a duplex villa that open to views of the Indian Ocean, a coconut plantation, an infinity pool, a rejuvenating spa and two exclusive beaches. The in-house restaurant offers both local and international cuisines and the property can arrange romantic dining experiences for guests right by the sea. The suites come with outdoor bathtubs, private pools and sun decks—amenities and settings that are perfect for a sunny coastal getaway.
Most of the show was filmed in India, across Shimla, Rajasthan, Delhi and Mumbai, and the crew even managed to shoot some crucial portions in Sri Lanka, just before the country’s economic crisis peaked in 2022.
