This little family run mid-range hotel is impeccably well set out and clean. The friendly owner and his attentive staff are a credit to the place and definitely enhance the overall enjoyment of the stay here. An absolutely glorious veranda to watch the waves roll in. Reasonable place for surfing a few wave immediately out from the hotel or 3... More

I have stayed at La Veranda di Serena with a group of friends from 30th December 2014 to 2nd of January 2015. The hotel is located right on the beach, and the first morning view while stretching your legs after a good night sleep is simply glamorous. The rooms are clean, simple and airconditioned. The breakfast is good, and served... More

This hotel is great with rooms overlooking the sea and impeccably clean rooms, it is a pleasure to relax on the balcony looking at the sea. The staff is welcoming and helpful and it is a five minute walk along the beach to reach the main town. On the down sides, the bedrooms do not have mosquito nets and after... More

My girlfriend and I were Made to feel very welcome at La Veranda. The breakfast was always excellent and the fruit smoothies some of the best I have ever had. The rooms were clean and perfectly satisfactory for couples staying a few nights. The hotel has it's own private beach and a balcony which we used to enjoy reading on.... More

Generall the restaurant didn't meet expectations and was below what you would expect interms of ambience-however, the tables in the open area was a great setting. Our experience is that food is generally of poor quality around galle area, particularly non sri lankan. Food quality does not match the ambience, but may be affodarble to tourists. Boutiques (kaddes) are best... More

We booked in for four nights after checking virtually every beachside accommodation from Thalpe up to Unawatuna. As soon as we walked into the room we knew we'd found the right place for the right price. A beautiful, airy room over looking the ocean. Very clean, well thought out with modern touches. Wifi, safe, tv and the best shower we... More

Booked for just one night but ended up staying 2. The view from the rooms are breathtaking. Good food. Great service. Private beach area. A big thank you to Chandana for being a great host. Absolutely great!!!

This is a nice boutique hotel at Unawatuna, a short drive out of Galle. It's literally on the beach, which makes for some stunning views. We spent a couple of very pleasant evenings out on the balcony with the waves thumping below. The breakfast at the hotel is excellent, starting off with some amazing juices, followed by eggs, fruit and... More

We stayed two nights in this small, friendly hotel. The house is set over the ocean with an amazing view on the unawatuna bay. Rooms are a little small and beds are quite hard, but they are perfectly clean and modern. Location is also great though the beach wasn't quite what we had expected (locals told us it has been...

Firstly, the staff was really nice. The rooms are clean. The view is gorgeous. The food is simple yet excellent. The mixed fruit juice is by far the best I have tasted. Absolutely delightful place to stay!
