We stayed for 2 weeks at Sri Gemunu at the start of an extended holiday in Sri Lanka and loved every minute. The owners and their staff are wonderfully welcoming and we felt at home from the first minute. Rooms are great, lovely balcony, food was good. 100mtrs up the beach is a lovely lagoon for safe swimming and snorkelling.... More

This is a rare find: expertly run hotel with wonderful staff who can't do enough for you. We were met with cheery smiles every morning at breakfast. The food was delicious - and the chef always on hand to explain the dishes on offer. Our room had a sea view and private balcony and a VERY comfy bed. The hotel... More

We stayed here for a week with our daughter, son-in-law and baby grandson. We were really delighted with this family-run gem of a place. The website probably doesn't do it justice.The setting is lovely, on a small bay just south of Unawatuna, with bathing in either a reef-protected lagoon or in more open sea. We saw turtles every day.

Fantastic. We stayed and got married in the hotel in november 2015. We stayed 5 nights. Room and view are fantastic, bathroom is basic but more than enough. Padmini and her team sorted everything for us. It was truly amazing. Friendly staff. Lovely grounds on to amazing quiet beach with a natural lagoon that made swimming safe. Can't wait to... More

We stayed here 4 years ago, loved it so much we decided to come back and stay in one of the chalets. This was perfect as we wanted quiet and seclusion. It is in beautiful grounds near the swimming pool. The staff are so pleasant and helpful, they can't do enough to help. Initially we weren't keen on half board,... More

Sri Gemunu is a small (20 rooms) family run hotel in a quiet location on the edge of Unawatuna. Rooms are fairly basic and the food is good but not outstanding. But actually, none of this matters when you are on your sun lounger, looking at a beautiful stretch of beach, or taking a short walk to the natural swimming... More

Wonderful hidden paradise at the edge of the Indian Ocean. Run by a kind family with helpful and kind staff. Nice and clean simple rooms in an quiet environment only a short tuk tuk Tour from Unawatuna. The Beach is excellent for swimming and snorkling at the reef.

We booked for five nights but left after two. It was probably my fault for making the booking in the first place as myself and family had had little sleep when we arrived having climbed Adams Peak at night and then gone on safari in Yala for two days. We needed somewhere to rest up and a little luxurious. What... More

We stayed with our three uni age sons and two friends for eight nights. The food was great, the rooms simple but clean and the staff extremely helpful and polite. The location is good too - away from the congestion of Unawutuna but with a couple of other small restaurants close by and a safe lagoon to swim in. We... More

I want to really take the opportunity to appreacite and commend the efforts of the staff and manager at Sri Gemunu. I got married recently and after the wedding, about 40 of us travelled to Unawathuna and took up most of the rooms in the hotel for 2 nights - it was also my birthday on the second night. What...
