Have stayed in Thambpanni many times over the last eleven years. Need I say more. It is fantastic in every way the best in Unawatuna.

Thambapanni hotel was perfect! the distance from the main Unawatuna beach and the Jungle beach was just right. Good breakfast included (and the breakfast staff are amazing! really funny guys) check-in was easy, although there were no towels in the room when we checked in...after a long flight and long train ride from Colombo, waiting to shower was not pleasant....

This has the best of both worlds. Surrounded by the serenity of the jungle like surroundings and beach only 200 meters away. To me this was the perfect scenario.
