Reservation at Sergeant House was a present i received from my friends to my Birthday in Pool Side Pavilion. There was a smiley welcome from the staff with nice welcome drink while showing the villa in our visit. Has a lovely swimming pool which is open 24hrs and have a outdoor jacuzzi which can be used to anyone who is staying in the villa. Bathrooms, room and the villa was clean and had nice collection of shower gel, shampoo, body lotion, conditions and also soap. They have arranged me a very tasty piece of surprise cake in our breakfast table to wish me on my birthday and it was a beautiful start for my birthday. The breakfast it self was tasty and big enough to fill our hungriness in the morning. Has a beautiful garden, calm environment and could not believe we are next to town, that much of beauty was there. Thank you Sergeant House for making my Birthday stay as remarkable.

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.
