Prior: We contacted the hotel prior and stay and from the get go Chathuri was very helpful to solving our queries. Stay: We visited the boutique hotel and we could not agree more possibly the best stay in srilanka so far ! From pool floats to the rooms it was phenomenal. We were given the pool view room and a twin room. Note : If you are traveling solo best would be the twin room as it has an attic bed. We only had breakfast and it was very good ! Staff was friendly and helpful at all Times ! Recommendation : MUST GO !

We visited Sergeant house in June 3rd weekend; just few weeks after country opened after covid. My cousin found the place online and it's a gem hidden in Unawatuna. The villa has several bungalow style blocks and each block is unique, spacious and beautiful. The pool, Jacuzzi and beautifully decorated interior are top highlights. Staff also very friendly and treated us well. Breakfast also served neatly and it was delicious. We had our full privacy and it felt like we totally disconnected from world in a perfect hideout. Sergeant house in Unawatuna is truly the definition of an ideal villa and villa experience. Don't think twice to book this amazing place.

We have just arrived home after a fabulous night away staying with Chathuri at Sergeants House. To say it exceeded our expectations would not do it justice. The staff, the room, the food and the grounds were simply amazing. Our room was decorated to celebrate our sons birthday and they looked after the whole family like royalty. The grounds are stunning and the jacuzzi and pool the best we have visited in Sri Lanka. Everyone there created the perfect atmosphere to relax in and made our stay tweely sensational, thank you so much, we will be back .

All I can say is that if you are looking for something that is just that little bit extra special and you almost want to keep it your special secret - then this is the place! Everything was perfect and we wished we were able to stay longer than four days - so much so we are going back in the Summer! And the food - stunning!

We had the most wonderful stay. Our room was gorgeous with a lovely outside seating area with an electric ceiling fan to keep the heat and mosquitoes at bay. We use to listen to the monks chanting in the Buddhist Monastery close by in the evenings which was relaxing. I had a massage here as well in the spa area which was expensive but a nice treat, The breakfast was exceptional too.The communal areas were very beautiful and the staff extremely welcoming. Loved the beaches opposite and also one near the turtle hatchery which was 500 rupees by tuk tuk. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. One of the nicest places we stayed in Sri Lanka.
