This is probably one of the nicest places to stay in Unawatuna and around. The staff are lovely and very accommodating and they really couldn't do enough for us. They helped us get reasonably priced tuk tuks, ensured the lovely towels, water and peanuts were provided for the beach and saw to it that we received fresh juice when we... More

Even before we arrived Sumith provided excellent customer service via email by arranging an airport transfer and answering some of my more pedantic questions (what kind of adaptor plug do I need?). On arrival our bags were whisked up to our room whilst we had a refreshing fresh pineapple juice and received a tour of the guesthouse including: breakfast buffet,... More

The Villa is very well appointed and rooms are great. Very clean, great breakfast and the towels and water for the beach are a nice touch. That said, the service is outstanding. Very personal and nothing is too hard. We had to leave for an emergency in the middle of the night, and our host got up and stayed up... More
