This hotel is by far the best hotel in the Unawatuna Area. From the moment I arrived the staff were so helpful and warm. I felt like an honored guest. The food is outstanding, the service is outstanding, the location is outstanding, the amenities are outstanding. The whole experience is outstanding. Perhaps one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka....

If you want to be just another tourist, then go here. Sri Lanka can be such a lovely place but it's like all the rowdy tourists all congregate at this hotel. Even the staff look fed up with it, if you're not happy about something, you are overlooked - in their eyes, you will be gone soon and another taken... More

This is a very nice place to stay at in Unawatuna! It's true that there is no beach left outside the hotel but it's only 3-4 minutes walk to the beach (part of the walk on rocks though - hopefully someone will create a nice beach walk here in a near future to make the path more convenient). The good... More

Spent a couple of days here, and was pleasantly surprised, fantastic location and overall a very nice place to relax. The bar and restaurant were both excellent, the rooms were slightly but more than adequate, the only criticism is it's not the easiest place to find and a better sign on the main road would solve this very quickly

We had a great stay here! Get a breakfast table next to the sea and on a clear day you can see all sorts of beautiful sea life. Nice way to wake up. Lots of activities available (included in the price of the room): sea kayaks, volleyball, yoga etc and a very cool glass lap pool. Bring a mask and... More

we only spent one night here whilst touring following the cricket ODIs. When the manager overheard me saying our room wasn't nice, she instantly offered to move us, so we had a room on the ground floor with a little terrace we could sit out on, which was a very nice room indeed. The main pool was being remodelled, but... More

We stayed for a couple of nights. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is free WiFi but on occasions it was a little flaky. However they did look into it when it was mentioned. Selection of food is good and varied. Good Sri Lankan food and continental. Breakfast was especially good. Looking forward to returning in April.
