My family and I stayed at the Sri Gemunu beach resort for 7 days in April 2015, and we had a fantastic time. We rented 2 rooms on the first floor that opened right onto the beach, with deck chairs right outside and a very short walk to the beach. The beach right in front of the reort is quite... More

We just got back from a 4 night stay at Sri Gemunu. The place is pretty magical and the setting is magnificent. And while the rooms are fairly basic, the view is to die for. Beds are super comfy too. Food in the restaurant is good too. But what makes the stay truly special is the staff who are very... More

We stayed for 4 nights in total and would definitely go back. The hotel is situated right on the beach, such a beautiful setting for eating breakfast and dinner. We saw monkeys, squirrels and peacocks in the trees whilst dining outside. A short walk along the beach will take you to a safe swimming area. The beach was really quite... More

Stayed for two nights, would have liked a few more. The hotel is directly on the wonderful beach. Its difficult to swim in front of the hotel garden, because of the rocks and the cuttet. But there is a little bay 100 meters to the left, its safe and peaceful. The view from the garden and the rooms are spectacular,... More

We picked Sri Gemunu Resort spontaneously when we were looking for a place close to the beach. And it was everything we had hoped for and more. All the rooms just a few steps from the ocean. Actually it's so close that you hear the waves loud and clear from your room. Maybe not for everyone, but WE LOVED IT.... More

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
