Reviewed December 17, 2010

Beautyfulll hotel in Unawatuna!! A peace garden front the room, 2 cosy terraces (one on the roof, with hamac), and the owners are really friendly. A nice place to stay!!!!
The rooms are all big and compfortable with mosquito nest.
Just 5 min walk to the beautifull beach of Unawatuna, we can have calm and local life.

Stunning guesthouse just a few minutes walk from Unawatuna's main beach, bars and restaurants. The rooms are wonderfully clean and spacious with gorgeous 4 poster beds, crisp white linen and hot water showers in the ensuite bathrooms. The setting is beautiful with guest balconies, a lounge area and terraces to relax in. My particular favourite was the rooptop terrace which I had to tear myself away from after delicious breakfasts each morning.. and to where I returned for a lazy afternoon in the hammock watching the monkeys swing amongst the palm trees! Superb value for money. Paul and Lorraine are incredibly hospitable and provide impeccable service. Couldn't fault this place and will undoubtedly book in again next time i treat myself to a Lanka holiday!

Just to add, I've stayed here with friends which was great fun, but also on my own and I always felt totally safe, which is so important as a young female traveller. There is a housekeeper and night security guy who is there to greet you anytime day or night.

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
