Shanti is on the beach front, with the best beach in Unawatuna. We had excellent accommodation with spacious rooms, very clean and all the added services, aircon, fan, TV, cleaning services etc. for an excellent price. It's a quick ride with a Tuk Tuk to get to Unawatuna centre, but far away enough to be outside of the tourist buz...

I stayed here for 13 days and it was awesome. The staff is very friendly and the owners of this place are very friendly and awesome too. Outside behind the big rock there is a very big wave ocean part. there is very low water and waves are huge (good for belly surfing :D) I highly recommend this beach resort.

This is a relatively large, confusing complex of faded grandeur. It's ok but nothing to write home about. Nice views and the staff are friendly enough but, it's a bit dull really. It's on the main road from Galle, so good for buses, and not too far walk to unawanatuna for restaurants. Don't expect to see stick fishermen

Shanthi Guest House, was a convenient place for us to go to for meals from where we stayed, (we stayed in a Boutique 600metres from Shanthi, along Road). We went to that Guest house for two reasons. a) The first time we went, we were given first class treatment, as we were the only people at the guest house. We...

Nice hotel, right on the coast, around the corner is a great beach. Rooms spotless, good a/c. Great portions served in beach side restaurant. Staff very friendly. Not the most modern of hotels but overall we had an enjoyable stay.
