Stayed in many hotels all over Sri Lanka and this is genuinely one of the best. The service was faultless, everybody couldn't do enough for us. My wife arranged this trip for my birthday and the hotel had gone all out to make a special trip. The room was decorated with balloons, the hotel made a lovely cake for me... More

We spent 7 nights at this beautiful, boutique hotel. It was not the cheapest available option in Unawatuna to stay($210 US with breakfast), and despite of the fact that closest beach was about 500 metres away, it turned out to be a great decision! We were a family of 5, with 3 kids, ages 11, 8 and 17 months. Airport... More

The location is a little off the track and heading in and out of the hotel after dark didn't seem like a good idea. The check in process was quick but the welcome drink came with a swarm of flies. The room itself (The Ocean Pavilion is the one with the sea view) is massive but felt rather aged. The... More
