I was enjoying a pleasant evening here until I received the bill. Like other restaurants in Unawatuna I expect an automatic 10% service charge to be added to the bill, even if I am not pleased with the service. It's a bad practice and should be voluntary, but I accept it is the way things are here. However the UBR... More

The location is very beautiful with an amazing beach. Much chilled out and quiet place. Good for a chilled out spend the day since it's not so far from Colombo. Food wasn't that great but it's alright. But I will definitely go back there. 👍🏻

Food was good. We watched some football while we had our dinner. They do tend to overlook the locals and pay more attention to the foreigners but hey that's ok. Stray dogs become a mess sometimes.

Their beach has disappeared due to a badly placed breakwater built by the government. However their deck, now precariously perched on rocks, is a great place to sip drinks, watch the waves and eat. The prices are good, service is nice and the food is excellent. They give a warm bread basket with the mains, quite a pleasant surprise as... More

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 eatery has only fans... 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
