A very pleasant family run hotel with good quality food. Can dine on the beach And on a starry night this can be quite an experience. Easy to find as its on the roadside and ample parking too. Staff is friendly and good. Ideal for group stays and group hosted partied even. Overall a very pleasant experience.

An absolutely wonderful resort on the best strip of beach along the entire coast. The staff are wonderful and the resort is in a fabulous location just out of Galle and Unawatuna but close enough to make a cheap tuk tuk ride. Lovely food and a superb setting. It really is the best choice for a holiday at the beach... More

This is a casual,clean, good value and friendly establishment with not too many rooms. The location is great, just on the beach with a rock pool further away along the beach, so everybody can have a swim without being worried about strong waves. So relaxing on deck chairs under palm trees watching Indian Ocean waves breaking on on sand and... More

I loved this small family owned hotel! The hospitality of staff here is wonderful and the location perfect, on an uncrowded beach. Unlike all the larger nearby beach resorts where sun baking chairs and people are squashed up next to each other competing for space, this place has fewer guests and much more communal garden space to relax. I loved... More

This family owned boutique hotel is wonderful! This is authentic Sri Lankan hospitality. Only 10 minutes from Galle Fort yet utterly relaxing. All the staff were friendly and helpful providing a genuine personalised service. The half board arrangement is totally worth it and includes breakfast and dinner. Food was fresh and so delicious. Rooms clean and simple, I loved our... More

We stayed for 2 weeks at Sri Gemunu at the start of an extended holiday in Sri Lanka and loved every minute. The owners and their staff are wonderfully welcoming and we felt at home from the first minute. Rooms are great, lovely balcony, food was good. 100mtrs up the beach is a lovely lagoon for safe swimming and snorkelling.... More
