Aircon and fan in the room and a 10 second walk to the beach. The staff were incredible, always going out of their way to help us with anything- organising tuk... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in total. 2 nights to start off before we moved to Mirissa, but as Unawatuna is closer to Galle and the airport we decided to return for our final 3 nights of our 2 week holiday in Sri Lanka. This place is very clean, large basic rooms with 4 poster beds to house the... More

Unawatuna's beaches are nice but busy. So the fact that Beach Bungalow (charmingly misspelled as "Bunglow" above the entrance) is a bit secluded is a benefit. The place overlooks the public beach with Hotel Calamander (formerly UBR) sunshades and deckchairs on it and a very swimmable yet funnily narrow glass (!) pool. You have to pay for the shades. One...

Stayed here for two or three nights in December and generally had very few complaints. The breakfast was generous, the location great for the beach, the staff were friendly and helpful, and it had a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The only downsides were the constant power cuts (though I guess this affected most hotels in the area) and the amount... More

I learned to appreciate how attentive and responsive the owners were after spending a few days trying to get the attention of servers at restaurants and sunbeds on Unawatuma Beach! The rooms and bathrooms here are basic, but more than adequate, very clean and with terrific A/C. There were several lock-able storage areas ( closet, desk drawer, safety/security box) which...
