I don't have one negative comment to make about the Kingfisher... The rooms are huge and beautiful, the view from the large balcony is amazing, the food is delicious (the best I tasted in Unawatuna) the staff are very friendly and can't do enough to make your stay as good as possible. I originally booked to stay for 4 night... More

Stayed here for 3 nights , not cheap by Sri Lankan standards, but at A$100 for a boutique hotel we loved it. (There are only 4 rooms!) we had a balcony overlooking the beach and the outdoor restaurant area. Beautiful room, terracotta and polished concrete. Lovely bathroom, only downside is there is no door ! Great staff, so friendly. Ate... More

Although we didnt stay we stopped in for dinner and the food was delicious. Mix of thai and sri lankan dishes which were delicious. Slightly overpriced compared to other local places but not much. Would recommend.

We stayed 3 nights here and loved it! It is small hotel with lovely rooms that are very clean and well equipped. The hotel is quite expensive compared to others but it is worth it. It is right on the beach and has loungers etc and the restaurant is very nice serving lovely food every time. It is in a... More

Good location right on the beach. VERY poor wifi, for which there is no excuse, as every other place in Unawatuna had better wifi, including next door! Rooms pretty basic for the price, and no doors between the bedroom and bathroom. Definitely not for new couples! Nothing left to the imagination let's just say. Overall for $120 a night, not... More

It's a pity this beautiful place only have four rooms...... Among numerous basic alternatives this hotel really stand out. Additionally the restaurant is outstanding. Due to the fact that they make everything from scrath some waiting can be experienced but it is worth while. Excellent staff and did I mention awsome moijitos ?

Absolutely loved this place - rooms were large and spotless (keep in mind no door from bathroom so plan who you're staying with!), lovely comfortable beds, A/C and a balcony area outside where we could chill in the evenings. All this overlooking the sea! About a 5 second walk to the beach with sun beds for peaceful lounging - very... More

The rooms are 5 Star quality, extremely well maintained. The beach is great and the food is amazing. The staff is very attentive and strive to meet any need you might have. I was here in the off season and managed to get a room. If you're visiting in the high season, book way in advance because there is only... More

Off season in Unawatuna so actually managed to bag one of the top floor rooms for the first time in two years . Rooms are spacious and spotless. For a beach side location these simple yet stylish rooms offer you all you need including a big outside area, kingsize comfortable bed, big well laid out bath room, no door though.... More

We came to the Kingsfisher from a different hotel (which was ok, but not quite what we were looking for). A friend had recommended the restaurant to us so we checked it out and oh, how lovely did we eat. After that dinner we decided to change our hotel for we also liked the location and style of the Kingfisher... More
