The location is perfect - at the end of Unawatuna beach with all the restaurants etc within a short walking distance. The room is cool and beautiful. There is no door to the bathroom, I have no idea why! The balcony is big and nice, A/C, nice bathroom, comfortable bed. There was no hot water during the 2 nights we... More

Food at the hotel was excellent especially breakfast. Spicy soup with prawns and vegetables also very nice - much like Tom Yum. Wifi not available in the rooms, but we... More

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.

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 ?
