Great Place For Sri Lankan Sea Food!

The Unawatuna Beach Resort close to Mirissa is a great place to savor the sea food delicacies of this island nation. Great food and nice menu to choose from - both veg and non-veg items. It may be a little hot and humid especially on balmy evenings when the sea breeze is not blowing. The outdoor... read more

This restaurant is full of tourists and tour groups. There is an extensive buffet and we experience a very hard sell to choose the buffet. We preferred al a carte as we wanted to sample the seafood which was good without being fantastic. However, the value was excellent as the seafood we ordered (jumbo prawns, lobster and the seafood platter)... More

We went for Lunch at this Resort. I found this to offer everything that Srilanka is known for. Beautiful sea, sailing boats emerald water, traditional cuisine, very courteous staff, owner personally supervising the service. In short, Hospitality at its best. I could not stay there for want of time. I am planning to stay during my next trip to Colombo... More

We visited Unawatuna Beach Resort for 5 days. The rooms were excellent, staff was helpful and polite, and the restaurant was positioned just out to the ocean and a good selection of high quality food. Furthermore, our guide/driver at the hotel was extremely helpful. If I had to comment one thing, it would be that the wi-fi connection could be... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 days. Surprisingly we got a sea view facing at a very reasonable price. The room is very comfortable. Initially we had problem with our safe but the hotel staff were very prompt in solving our problem. We had pizza and spagetti there on the first night as well as cocktail. The food... More

I have lived in the area for over two years and never been to the UBR now called Calamander before. Having heard it was just so-so. What a mistake! The setting is right on the sea front in a very airy light style. Attention to detail is everywhere. Staff are very welcoming and courteous. Our server Kusumsiri was exceptional in... More

On our way to Galle, we stopped in Unawatuna for lunch. We went to a restaurant called Calamander Unawatuna Beach Resort aka UBR. The place is really a beach side hotel resort but we stopped at the restaurant only for lunch. This place is overrated, overpriced and a tourist ripoff. Our group of six was seated. The tables are rather... More

Unawatuna Beach Resort is located on the scenic Unawatuna Beach on the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka. Galle is a short (probably 5km ?) drive away. While we were staying at the Fortress Hotel (www.fortress.lk) at Koggala (10km from Unawatuna to the South) the rates for buffet, a-la-carte at that hotel were exorbidant. So we decided to look around for... More

I am confused that most of the reviews talk about the restaurant and not the resort itself. We stayed in the new section of this resort for 3 nights. The room was on the top floor and overlooked the ocean and pool. Very spacious, clean and quiet. Fabulous location right on the beach although the undertow was very strong in... More
