Sri Gemunu is one of, not to say the best place and location south of Galle. They have comfortable sun beds, and a very quiet location. It is perfect for all ages. Elderly, and children. The rooms are comfortable, the verandas are quiet, and they all have very fantastic sea view. I can say this, as I have been travelling...

We stayed here for 6 nights in January 2017 as a couple, it had been a special Birthday for my partner a couple of days before, however the staff had still decorated the room for our arrival, which was so thoughtful. Our room was basic but had everything we needed. We loved the outside area and the beach front both...

The food was fresh and delicious, the chefs explained the dishes and ensured there was plenty of options for awkward visitors like me - vegetarian! Situation in a great location on the...

Why 3 not 5 Star, it's not a 5 Star place, and it's not 5 Star prices!! Sri Gemunu Beach Resort is the genuine real deal, honest good value without pretence or BS. The Owner and the staff really take pride in ensuring things run smoothly, we felt immediately comfortable and at home. The Hotel is superbly located only 8km...

the is a lovely family run hotel. It has a beautiful setting and very close to a safe swimming beach. Something of a rarity in Sri Lanka. The half board rate is reasonable but for me it was just a nice feel. Aruna can be contacted through the hotel website and he will book your needs. Yes will go back...

Sri Gemunu Beach Resort is such a wonderful place, one of those few places you encounter that has everything: beautiful surroundings, beautiful garden, chefs who make the best Dhal, woks, curry, breakfast and a lot of other things. Friendly, caring staff and good nice rooms. We stayed three weeks and in our large family ages from 10-75 years and everyone...

The Sri Gemunu is a lovely family run hotel located in Dalawella Beach on the south coast of Sri Lanka. I have stayed 4 times at this hotel over the past 12 years and I'm happy to report that this hotel is improving with time! It's located south of Unawatuna and is a short ride to the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE...

We visited during Christmas with family and friends and were very satisfied with this friendly hotel. Very serviceminded staff, good food and good rooms and facilities. Good baths for both adults and children. We swam with turtles outside the beach. Strongly recommend for both family and couples!

Best and most friendly staff we have encountered during our Sri Lanka journey. Fantastic rock and sand beach location. Not really suited for children and no pool. Ideal for couples though. Rooms are not new and have suffered from the rough sea climate, but this is logical when your balcony is 20 m from the sea waves. We'll surely go...
