My teenage daughter and I stayed here for nine days at Christmas, and we just have to say thank you to the family who owns it, and all the staff. To fall asleep and wake... More

Our stay at the hotel was excellent , We arrived at the resort unplanned but they made sure we were given a great room and taken care of. The access to the water and ocean is to die for and nearly a personal natural infinity pool. The hotel is very close to the buzzing beach but yet not too close... More

Mr. Chandana, the proprietor at La Veranda di Serena, handled every aspect of our week in the sun with grace and efficiency. From arrival in Colombo to taking off again 8 days later he delivered an attention to detail that inspired confidence and made the foibles of Sri Lanka charming rather than irritating. The Hotel is Boutique and beautifully located... More

A lovely hotel with all the family around. Suitable for families and couples. Right on the beach. 5 mins walk into the village. 2 mins walk from the nearest good restaurant. Having said that the food here is very good. Great local food. The sea is noisy, very noisy. Getting used to it now. The odd bus and horn wakes... More

Slightly off the main strip, this hotel is a great little gem in one corner of Unawatuna beach, perfect little hotel for couples in a quiet spot right next to the ocean. Resident turtles swim right under your balcony! The hotel staff were extremely helpful and really go out of their way to assist you even after we left the... More

On our arrival, the Manager gave us a friendly welcome, and when we were checking in, two refreshingly cool fresh fruit smoothies suddenly appeared - a perfect greeting. Our air conditioned room was really clean and the en-suite bathroom was a treat - especially as it had a powerful hot water shower - worked a treat. The room also had... More

La Veranda Di Serena is a great boutique hotel in a superb location. My room was very clean and comfortable, the view from my balcony was amazing. The owner lives on site and works hard (and succeeds) to provide a quality experience for guests. If I am ever in Sri Lanka I will be sure to return to La Veranda... More

Staff offered welcome drink after arriving. The building faces to the sea, panorama is beautiful, the hotel has its own beach. Room was clean and nice, unfortunately there were a lot of mould on every walls. Manager said they planned to renovate after our stay, but it was not an excuse for smelly, mouldy walls. The manager was very helpful... More
