Found the hospitality fake and there was a definite preference towards European travellers. Didn't like being stared at when walking downstairs or at the table eating. Thank God I'm confident. Woke up at 5am to the sound of loud talking and clanging plates. The fish meal was the best I had had in SL. Chose it from a glass case... More

Arrived 25 July 2014 for four nights, as last part of our 19 day holiday in Sri Lanka. The room that we booked through our travel agent, first floor and frontal sea view, was not available. Staff was not very helpful and did not offer any real solace. They did offer three nights at a sister hotel nearby, but that... More

We stayed 4 nights at the beach house and enjoyed every minute. From the moment the lovely Nuwani welcomes you and checks you in to when you leave you are treated like friends and guests. Lovely spacious rooms that are right on the beach and close to the attractions. The food was good too. You are able to use the... More

We spent 6 days at the start of our tour of Sri Lanka. It was just the place to relax, enjoy the sun and beach, eat fresh fish every day in the excellent restaurant and get acquainted with Sri Lankan hospitality. Staff made us feel really comfortable. We stayed in the ground floor room no 1 - the door was... More

We decided to travel to Unawatana after a bad experience in another hotel (The Safari, Yala). It was late when we arrived, but the staff were very friendly and on being shown to our room we were delighted with our view. We had a balcony overlooking the restaurant and beach (room 4), where we had a drink from the mini... More

We had a wonderful 4 night relaxing beach stay. Staff are so helpful and friendly nothing is too much trouble. Even got a good rate being off season. Stayed in room 3 and was big enough to accomodate extra bed for our child. View from balcony right out overlooking the beach. Food was terrific and we ate on our balcony... More

On our arrival our room booked was not available so they kindly upgraded us to the penthouse Room 11. It was nicely decorated with a lovely balcony overlooking the beach. Comfortable large bed, tea & coffee making facilities, drinking water were all supplied. This a busy little resort with a pleasant atmosphere. The breakfast was quite good although if you... More

Thaproban Beach House - Sri Lanka We stayed at the above for two weeks in April 2014. We were attending a family wedding and decided to stay there after searching their web site. It sounded just what we were looking for. We were not disappointed. Nuwani and the rest of the staff were very kind and attentive, wanting to please... More

Totally rebuilt since the tsunami, the beach house has an open, airy feel. We were very pleased with our choice as the position is right on the beach where one can dine at night on the sand. Plenty of fresh seafood to choose from - you pay by weight and it is cooked for you immediately. We found all the... More

It's a nice cute hotel, with a great location. The rooms are clean and pleasant but the service is overlooked. The breakfast is good however, one of the advantages of staying here is the access to the Thaproban pavilion swimming pool and spa. The Thaproban Pavilion which is a 10 mins walk from this hotel, has the most awesome pool... More
