We were quite excited to visit wonderful boutique hotel which is quite renowned for its beautiful architecture and period furniture. It was indeed a beautiful and imposing mansion steeped in history with a lovely old world charm to it. The ambience and laid back style of the hotel was mirrored by it's friendly and supportive staff. Nissanka at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming and gave us a good briefing about the hotel and it's rich past. Even Sangeeth and Uvinda who served us were very helpful and gave personal attention to every detail of service. It was a very enjoyable stay at this charming hotel where time seems to stand still !!!

Its a great place to relax and unwind. It Blends the colonial style architechural splendour with modern luxuries in a serene garden setting. The restaurants, lounges and the rooms are furnished with an array of elegant antique furniture and there is also a beautiful pool which nestles among trees. There’s something about this place that makes you feel that you’re actually taking a break. The food is a treat. Their rice and curry paired with watalappan is undoubtedly the perfect comfort food you must try. Special thanks to the restaurant Manager Mr.Senarath, chef Lakmal, ovinda for making our stay comfortable. We absolutely loved the entire experience and will definitely return.

This hotel just might be the most prettiest and most relaxing place I’ve stayed at. But I guess I can say that because I’m partial to the colonial architecture. From the moment we entered, the service was excellent. They adhered to the COVID-19 safety regulations. Our room was sanitized a few hours before we checked in and sealed till our arrival. Everyone at Tamarind Hill was so courteous and wonderful. We went there for a weekend trip to celebrate my best friend’s birthday and they arranged a delicious complimentary birthday cake to surprise her at dinner. They were so discreet about it that she was definitely surprised! I must especially mention Sangeeth. He went above and beyond to make our stay special...even telling us little facts about the hotel, making sure our food was always made to our specifications and telling us when & where to find the peacocks. That’s another thing...while we were there, we kept hearing peacocks and that morning after breakfast, one was right there inside the hotel courtyard just hanging out. Apparently it’s a common thing every morning! The food was delicious and the chef checked in with us on the very first night itself to get our feedback but all we could do was gush about how good it was. It was ala carte over buffet and I feel it was preferable. The menu was simple but we had enough to choose from (in fact it was hard to choose because everything looked yummy) and every bite we had was flavorful. Breakfast being my favorite meal wherever I go, I must especially recommend their ham & cheese omelet. I’m not usually a fan of rice & curry but I absolutely love the way they made it at Tamarind Hill. They included something delicious called a kara mallum which is made of leaves from a tree grown in their hotel itself. Apparently it has Buddhist historical significance that I wasn’t fully aware of. The room was spacious and comfortable but the lighting could use some improvement I feel. The bathroom was quite large and it had a fan of its own so it would always be dry which we all definitely appreciated. Though the hotel is not right on the beach, it’s just a walk away or you could drive to Unawatuna in less that 30 mins. All in all, we were sad to leave and I could say without a doubt that I look forward to going back there! Thank you so much for having us and making our stay wonderful!!!

I loved my stay here back in January 2020 so I decided to return once again this month. (March 2021). Let me start with the pros - We arrived at 1 pm and the team was kind enough to offer a late check out the next day, free of charge. - You cannot fault the Sri Lankan breakfast. The hoppers, roti, string hoppers - they were all excellent. - The pool is large and it’s the perfect setting that gives you privacy and if you’re lucky you can catch a peacock wandering around along with some monkeys. - they did not inform us that there would be no alcohol as their license was not renewed but they made an effort to find a tuk guy who purchased a few beers for us. Cons - The place looked run down in comparison to last year which was very sad to see. The bar area - which was shut was not at all clean with stains on their lovely white seating. It leads down to the pool so even with the bar shut it’s a nice area to enjoy a cup of tea or a game of cards. - It was near impossible to get someone from the team to assist. They were almost invisible during our stay. We had to walk into their office to ask someone to come and take an order. This slowly turned out to be quite irritating since none of the staff were in sight. - Last year their menu was great. Unfortunately this time, they barely had any of their items. None of their pizzas were available, no burgers etc. We were on full board (and the set menu was not too great) but we had no problem paying and ordering via the ala carte menu. We decided to skip dinner and head to the fort. - The desserts were actually rather bad and the bread buns were stale. All in all, I understand due to the pandemic they might be cost cutting / staff not turning up to work etc but it was quite sad to notice such a drastic change within that year. Hope it picks up!

The hotel is absolutely beautiful! Even at full capacity the hotel and surrounding is so calm and quite. Hospitality was very good with constantly good service. Chef prepared a personalized dinner for us and we enjoyed every bit of it!
