Lovely family run hotel in a great location on a small beach about 10 minutes from Unawatuna beach by three wheeler. Standard breakfast of fruit, eggs and toast but lovely evening meal food. Our rooms had a sea facing balcony and were clean and comfortable. We spent most evenings having drinks in the garden watching the sun going down. The... More

We stayed here for a few nights after arriving in Sri Lanka. The airport pick up was efficient. Staff were very welcoming, the rooms were good and clean. There is a safe and racks to dry clothes - we found many places didn't have these so this is good. The hotel offers a good selection of Sri Lankan and Western... More

We wanted to relax a view days at the beach before our trip through Sri Lanka. Therefore the Sri Gemunu Beach Resort was exactly the right choice. The breakfast (fruit plate, bread and eggs in any form, fruit juice and a hot beverage) was very good. We also had the dinner included. We could choose any 3 courses from the... More

My husband and I stayed here with our two babies (ages 5 months and 2 years old) for 6 nights in July and we had a wonderful experience! The staff was the most attentive of any hotel we've ever stayed in. There was always someone there to help watch our babies while we ate, which was so helpful. They even... More

Beautiful hotel situated directly at a wonderful beach some kilometers east of Unawatuna. Very friendly and attentive staff, beautifully decorated rooms and tables. Breakfast buffet was fantastic, dinner buffet was varied and good. Our nice and clean room (without A/C) was on the first floor with a view of the beach. In summary, the most beautiful place we have ever... More

My wife me and 2 small children (2 and 5 years old) stayed at Sri Gemunu 2 weeks. We had wonderful time there. We stayed in bungalows (challe) about 800 meteres far from the hotel. It was in beautiful garden, we feeled like in a jungle. We were there alone so it was like a private villa. There is a... More

Stopped here for lunch, location is superb especially if the stilt fisherman are here. Food is ok but it's not in any way superb as mentioned in other reviews, good service, all in all worth visiting for lunch. A little tip is to pack your swimming costume

We spent a great 2 days and 1 night here (May 20, 2014). The staff are all very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. The hotel is right on the beach with a lovely palm-tree terrace looking out on the sea with some fishermen's stilts right in front. Although by the road, the ony thing you... More

We discovered this place quite by chance when we were looking for a place to eat along the Galle- Unawatuna road. What we liked best is that they have a private stretch of beach and the restaurant starts right at the edge. The food was the best we had in Sri Lanka. The taste of the salad which we were... More

I contacted them for reservations yesterday and I was told that Sri Gemunu will close down for renovations for a few months. They were not sure of when they will be ready, certainly not in May, June and July. The beach 100 meters to the left is fantastic. The rooms are basic, clean but I would advice those with small...

This is just a misunderstanding and we did not take any reservation the month May 2014 due to some renovation Project. But our hotel operation is back to normal again. Thanks . More
