We arrived at Palm Grove just after Christmas and absolutely loved it. Lorraine and Paul were fantastic hosts and looked after us during our five day stay. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. We spent a fantastic New Years Even with Paul and Lorraine, so much so we attempted to come back to Palm Grove at the end of our Sri Lankan adventure (however, they were full).
Palm Grove is a short walk away from the beach, but suitably tucked away so that you feel relaxed and rested.
Be sure to say hello to Charlie the Labrador if you stay here - but be careful as he has a tendency to have a nap in places where you're likely to fall over him!!
If you're reading this Lorraine and Paul - a huge thanks from the UK!!
ps - Driver trips can also be arranged through Lorraine and Paul, which are also highly recommended.
- 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
