Our sea pavilion room had lovely views of the ocean and a balcony where some amazing sunsets were captured with our camera.

Stayed here for 2 nights with family (5 adults and 2 children). We had booked a 2 bedroom suite and a single room. The rooms are very large with excellent interiors. Airport pickup and drop was organised by the hotel in a large van, keeping in mind the 2 hour journey. The pool overlooks the sea and the waves often... More

Having traveled around Sri Lanka we wanted to end up by the beach. We stayed for nights at this property in a family room. The room was nice and clean and the beds comfortable but next to it was a construction site that worked night time which was disturbing. Granted, this is not the hotel's responsibility but some kind of... More

Located about 25 minutes drive from Galle Fort, this hotel is clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly. And the dining atmosphere is charming, with tables set up by the pool and waves crashing against the rocks. There is no beach here, but there are beaches nearby. The location is pretty good, only a 5 minute tuktuk ride... More

We arrived at about 8.30pm straight from a drive from Nurawa Eliya and was greeted with a papaya shake + ice cold towels which was great, given the warm sultry weather. We were informed that the kitchen closes at 9.30pm so we hastily checked in and made our way to the open sandy area for dinner. The sound of the... More

Location was by foot about 500 meters from Unawatuna beach. Rooms were clean and nice. Only thing we thought was weird, they dont give you hand towels, floor towel..

Stayed for 1 night at the retreat, and enjoyed a room overlooking the pool and beach which had an amazing view. Facilities were clean and well kept, and the staff was exceedingly helpfull. It appeared to be full of mostly families, but it by no means felt like a kiddie-hotel. All together a lovely hotel in Unawatuna.
