We booked in for four nights after checking virtually every beachside accommodation from Thalpe up to Unawatuna. As soon as we walked into the room we knew we'd found the right place for the right price. A beautiful, airy room over looking the ocean. Very clean, well thought out with modern touches. Wifi, safe, tv and the best shower we... More

Booked for just one night but ended up staying 2. The view from the rooms are breathtaking. Good food. Great service. Private beach area. A big thank you to Chandana for being a great host. Absolutely great!!!

This is a nice boutique hotel at Unawatuna, a short drive out of Galle. It's literally on the beach, which makes for some stunning views. We spent a couple of very pleasant evenings out on the balcony with the waves thumping below. The breakfast at the hotel is excellent, starting off with some amazing juices, followed by eggs, fruit and... More

We stayed two nights in this small, friendly hotel. The house is set over the ocean with an amazing view on the unawatuna bay. Rooms are a little small and beds are quite hard, but they are perfectly clean and modern. Location is also great though the beach wasn't quite what we had expected (locals told us it has been...

Firstly, the staff was really nice. The rooms are clean. The view is gorgeous. The food is simple yet excellent. The mixed fruit juice is by far the best I have tasted. Absolutely delightful place to stay!

We stayed here for 7 nights at the end of January after travelling around Sri Lanka and really enjoyed our time here. We were lucky to stay a few nights in the fabulous penthouse apartment. It is amazing, so huge and so beautifully fitted out with a fabulous luxurious bed, large lounge area where you can open all the windows... More

Had 2 nights here. The staff on hand were all very friendly and obliging, and the room itself, although on the basic side were adequate and clean. The bathrooms though were spacious which was a bonus. My only issue was that the television in the room would not work - and despite assurances by staff that this would be rectified,... More

Truly amazing! The sea view, private beach, tasty breakfast (try the Sri Lankan omelette), proffesional service - couldn't ask for more. Small hotel run by a local family makes your stay more personal than a stay in a big hotel. You can learn so much about the culture and fully experience it. Chandana - the manager speaks very good English... More
