We returned to this wonderful hotel in December 2014 and found that the place was just as fantastic as the year before, the staff and management just as nice and helpful. Everything written about the location, the food and the great atmosphere is true. Can only recommend Sri Gemunu Beach Resort if you a looking for a smallish hotel with... More

We stayed for two weeks and travelled around the south coast using the hotel as our base. This hotel is in a lovely location, on a beautiful beach. It is full of character and run by lovely, friendly, helpful staff. From this location you are well placed to explore using the local trains, buses and tuk tuks. Getting out and... More

This is the best place! Our plan was to stay there for some days, but when we arrived we decided to spend rest of our holidays in Sri Gemunu. We had the service and professionalism of the big hotels in combination with the friendliness and charm of the family run guesthouse. It has it all. We had fantastic food in... More

Our family of 5 enjoyed some days here over the new year and everyone enjoyed the hotel and beach for different reasons. My husband and I went from our deck chairs with a book to dip into the clean sea to swim with our children. Our eldest, fair skinned, enjoyed all the shady places to lay out and read. Our... More

We stayed for two weeks in this wonderful hotel. We arrived after a stressful journey from the UK to a really warm and friendly welcome. The room was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The best part was the balcony which had a fabulous view of the sea and overlooked the garden which was often inhabited by monkeys... More

Stayed for a week and it's still amazing as it was 2 years ago. Great views of the sea and beach to feast your eyes on every morning you awake. The staff are second to none too and are always ready to greet you with a smile. It's still the most peaceful place to visit and unwind. Unfortunately towards the... More

So laid back and relaxing. Love this place. It's right on the beach. You cannot even say how many metres away the beach is because it really is right on the beach. The staff is super polite and helpful. Service is great. Food is okay. It is not outstanding so to speak. You will get beds to bask in the... More
