Very nice place right on the beach in Unawatuna. We booked the penthouse which was very comfortable. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom. A large balcony with seaview is a plus! The food is good, and the people are very, very nice, friendly and helpfull! Airport transfer will take abouth 3 hours.

Really really lovely hotel situated as close as you can get to the sea! Stayed 5 nights in July 2014 in the penthouse suite with a large balcony overlooking the Unawatuna bay - fantastic view! It would, however, add to the stay if a little more balcony-privacy could be given. Maybe some big plants between the two penthouse balconies? Spacious,... More

The location reminds me of Bali 20 years ago. A small winding street filled with tuk tuks, little restaurants and shops leads to this lovely and lively hotel on the beachfront. The staff were very friendly although the lady receptionist should look and talk to new customers and not be waving to passerbyers, to make people feel welcome. The male... More

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

Dear Guest, We like to inform you regarding the massage you have taken from the beach, which has nothing to do with the hotel, we don't have a spa in the beach and the bad choice of taking a beach massage was taken by you and its not right to have mentioned in the review as its your decision.

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
