Its located on a quiet beach, so you will have the beach pretty much to yourself, if the ocean is rough there is a bay like area 2 minutes away, where you can swim. The pool is small, but next to the... More

After 8 days of travelling in Sri Lanka we spend the last 4 days in this relaxing hotel. The room was of a good size, clean and tidy. Each room had a small balcony overlooking the sea for perfect start of the day. The swimming pool is small but with good scenery over looking the sea. The staff was great.... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights during our trip. It has a great view of the ocean. The room was spacious with everything we needed. It was lovely to eat with the ocean view too from the nice restaurant. Breakfast was good with toast and freshly cooked items from a menu. Nice change from a buffet. We saw... More

Hotel has 15 rooms and it is located not far away from Unawatuna. Note that to go to the town you have to use transportation (tuk-tuk, local bus or private taxi. No shuttle bus is provided!). Some of the tuk-tuk people who are around the hotel are a bit annoying as they will insist you to go with them. Indeed... More

A gorgeous modern boutique hotel situated in a quiet location with its own beach. Beautiful palm trees spread out over the pool and on to the beach which makes this a picuresque location good for couples and familes. The food served in the restaurant is a mix of thai arabic sri lankan and western and it was delicious. The staff... More
