We spent in this lovely guesthouse a week in January 2013.
It's located in a 5 minute walk from the beach of Unawatuna. Palm Grove is situated in a very beautiful and quiet place among the trees. The breakfast (omelet and fruits) was served on a spacious terrace with an amazing view to the jungle. And there is also another small and secluded terrace on the 2 floor where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. Or you can read books from a little library or play games.
You can even listen to the stereo, if it doesn't bother other guest of course :-)
Rooms are equipped with air conditioning, mosquito net and ensuit bathrooms.
The best thing about the guesthouse is definitely their owners. They are incredibly friendly and do their best to satisfy all your needs. And it wasn't formal. It felt like they took care of us as if we were their friends.
It was a great pleasure to have a little chat with them in the evening sipping local beer.
We want to thank the great couple for everything.
And if we happen to came to Sri Lanka again, we will certainly stay in Palm Grove.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Palm Grove is located in an idyllic village setting. Very quiet setting. Away from the nightlife but still within walking distance to all locations. Only a 10 minute stroll to the shops,bars,restaurants and the beautiful bay of Unawatuna. There are many tours that you can take from Unawatuna to suit all tastes. The turtle hatchery is less than 20 minutes away, as is Koggala Lake where you can take a relaxing boat trip on the Lagoon and visit some of the small islands situated there. A three to four day tour will take you to Ella with its waterfalls, Nuwara Eliya with its tea plantations and greenery. The 'Temple of the Tooth' at Kandy and the nearby 'Elephant Orphanage' are also well worth a visit. ... more less
