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

We visited this beach restaurant for a light lunch. The "English Ploughman's Lunch" tempted me, promising "generous slices of Cheddar cheese and Branston pickle". The pickle was completely missing (tomato ketchup instead). I thought the cheese had been forgotten by the kitchen but the waiter pointed out a white covering on the inside of the bread. The baguette itself was... More

If you want peace and quiet don't stay here. We came here to find a couple of restaurants and compared to the peace and quality of our nearby hotel (Apa Villas), it was awful. The Costa del Sol of southern Sri Lanka.

Staying inUNawatuna and walked by this restaurant on the beach. Caters for the residents of course but very happy to serve anyone else, we were warmly welcomed into the restaurant, half on open air beach, half in large covered area with central bar and loads of fans to keep the air moving and cool (its always hot !) Friendly waiters... More

One afternoon we visited the restaurant - right on the beach - for coffee and tea. Slow slow service - not a place we like to visit in the evening with a lot of guest from the hotel linked to the restaurant. Many better more pleasant are available.

We ate at the Beach resort four times during our stay in Unawatuna. We didn't live at the resort. The pizzas are best in town and we where positively surprised by the high standard of the evenening buffe - which was free for children under 6 years - so it became okay in price. But the place does have a... More

Great Food! Excellent personalised service!! Chaminda is the best! The ambience is fantastic for lunch or for dinner or for lounging and grazing the whole day!! We had 3 out of 4 meals (not including breakfast) in Unawatuna at UBR. Brilliant!!
