Pearly's Dream Cabanas
Ranked #14 of 164 Specialty Lodging in Galle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Pearly's Dream Cabanas are truely wonderful. After meeting Pearly, Sunil and their 3 wonderful children we've returned to Sri Lanka and will continue to come back. The cabanas are simple and have everything you need. The food is delicious and the beach is beautiful. The location is ideal because the beach is very quiet but a short walk and you are at beachside restaurant/bars and a spot were the reef forms a natural swimming pool that is perfect for the children (and adults). The best part of our trips here have been getting to know Pearly and her family. Everyone really goes out of their way to make you feel at home. I highly recommend staying at Pearly's Dream Cabanas to anyone considering a trip to Sri Lanka.

Our stay at Pearly's Dream Cabana's was the highlight of my three month trip for so many reasons. I would have to say that the main reason for this was the lovely welcome by Pearly, Sunnil and their three lovely boys. They are so helpful, friendly and carling, always on stand-by to offer help with anything they can (partiularly tea and food, lovely breakfast). The cabana's themselves are clean, comfortable and good size with big balcony and set in the most stunnning position. The beach is amazing, although you can't always swim outside the cabana's (due to currents) there is a sheltered lagoon and swimming area within 5 mins walk. The cabana's are near to Unawantana if you fancy a night out, but they are far enough away if you would like a quiet secluded stay away with only the sound of the sea soothing you off to sleep at night. This is not luxury accommodation, but I didn't want for anything during our stay.

We had the best time! We started our vacation staying at a more fancy hotel down the beach, but soon switched to Dream Cabana. We could not have made a better choice! The rooms (we tried both the upper and the lower one during our stay) are simple, but clean and spacious. The view from the cabanas are priceless, and the beach outside is just wonderful. Eventhough the cabana is just a few hundred meters from the nice bars and restaurants at Unawatuna bay, this stretch of the beach is almost free from tourists. We spent numerous sunrises and sunsets alone at the beach, watching the water, stars, and palm trees.

Pearly, Sunnil and the three boys are tremendous hosts. The breakfast, lunch, dinner and service is perfect. Pearly also hooked us up with her nephew, Amila, who drove us up to Adam's Peak and showed us a great time in the mountains.

If you want a personal touch, stay at Dream Cabana!

what can I say, fabulous location right on the beach,lovely spacious rooms and balconies and a brilliant host family. This place has everything. Its a great place to sample to beauty of southern Sri Lanka away from the hustle of Unawatuna. Be sure to try Sunnils fresh caught lobsters, and Pearly's devilled prawns.
