We stayed for four nights at Sri Gemunu with our 2 children. The staff were smiling and helpful. From the balcony we had a beautiful view of the beach. The buffet was nice, authentic and varied. The sea just outside the hotel is quite rough, but 200 meters down the beach there is a nice lagoon. It´s a nice swimming... More

I can't say enough good things! We stayed for 6 nights in one of the 2 chalets, which are a stunning ten minute walk up the road from the main hotel. They are situated in their own private garden which is amazing. It's full of wildlife and this is also where the pool and spa facilities are located. We pretty... More

We had the most perfect stay at Sri Gemunu Beach Resort. We stayed a week over Christmas and have never before experienced such tasteful dinners! Perfect location right on the beach and felt good that there is a life-guard every day. Beach towels provided and we never missed or needed a pool. Very kind, attentative and forthcoming staff. Our rooms... More

We travelled in Sri Lanka for a month and stayed in 11 hotel, varying from terrible to superb. The Sri Gemunu was one of two hotels that I would highly recommend. (Allspice Villa (Colombo) being the other) The location is directly on the beach, all the staff are brilliantly helpful and never expect a tip (but always got one from... More

My husband, three year-old and I stayed for 2 weeks of beach fun and relaxation. Sri Gemunu's location, right on a swimming beach, is excellent and all the more so for the rough seas around most of Sri Lanka. Sri Gemunu also has an idyllic pool, with kiddy pool, which can be reached via a 10 minute walk into the... More

We enjoyed our two night stay in this place. The room was was basic but comfortable. The hotel sits right on the beach, on a good sized plot, which allows a space for a nice shady garden area. The staff is friendly and attentive. Shame there is no pool in the hotel.

We stayed for a week wanting relaxation and we weren't disappointed! So relieved we weren't in the resort of Unawatuna when we arrived as that seems to have been ruined. Our room was not so big but most comfortable and well kept, with a lovely view out to sea. A very pleasant area with sunbeds and good service for cooling... More

This was my 2nd visit to this hotel, which has two major advantages. - Super location, just by the beach. The beach has a small lagoon protected by a reef, which is very child friendly as the sea in the lagoon doesn't have big waves. You can always go outside the lagoon, ifyou feel like playing in the waves (be... More
