Great spacious rooms, very nice service, newly renovated. Owned by a great Sri Lankan family that invited you in their home and takes care of you as if you are family. Loved the place and will recomment it to anybody visiting Unawatuna.

we spent 5 night at this locely guesthouse. in contrary to guesthouses located right on the beach, this one was reasonably priced (3000rs) we good a 2nd floor room that was huge and very clean and comfortable. it also had a balcony although not facing the beach side. location is 2 min walk from the beach. proprietor was kind and helping, let us use his internet for free as his guests and arranged tuktuks if we needed.

Room Tip: the front rooms have a beach view

We stayed two nights in Sunny Mood in Unawatuna. The room was big, extra clean with a big, clean bathroom and AC. We even had a balcony. The guesthouse is located near the beach, just a 2-3 min walk, in a quite calm location. The family that runs the guesthouse is very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast is also good - we asked for a string hooper with curry, because we never had one and it was delicious.

We recently spent 4 weeks in Sri Lanka having visited the country many times and the 4 days we stayed at this property were the best period of our whole trip. The rooms are very clean and functional and the family who own the property will do whatever they can to make your visit as pleasant as possible. The location is great as there are numerous restaurants on the beach where we had great meals including breakfasts and there are many sunbeds at these places which are available to anybody. The sea is relatively calm and is ideal for swimming. There is a brand new internet cafe virtually next door to Sunny Mood. Finally we saw a great deal of things of interest from our balcony at Sunny Mood, monkeys and woodpeckers being just 2 of them. Reasonably priced , we cannot recommend this establishment highly enough.

We had been recommended to stay at Nor Lanka in Unawatuna but didn't like their price (60 Euro). It was a fancier category of hotel/guest house than we had been staying in while travelling throughout Sri Lanka. Sunny Mood provided the perfect alternative. For 3000 rupees we had a massive clean room with 4 poster bed, freshly washed mosquito net, single bed, fridge with some beers in it (cheap price for them), space for our packs and big bathroom. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony outside our room relaxing. The price also included a lovely breakfast of eggs, fruit, coffee and toast.

What made our stay so nice was not just a big bright clean cool room, but the lovely family who ran the place. They made us feel welcome. The guest house is an easy 2 min walk directly onto the beach, but we found the best swimming and eating at Unawatuna to be further around the beach towards the Buddhist temple. Wherever the Sri Lankans are swimming the water will be more calm, with less dumping waves.

Be sure to check out Il Rustico down next to the temple and dive shop. The young chef here does lovely Italian and also some of the best Sri Lankan curry and vegetables that we ate in the whole country. They buy their seafood straight off the fisherman as they come in to the beach in front of the cafe with the night's catch. It is also a quick tuk tuk ride back to the hotel if you're too tired after swimming!

We had a double room with ac for very reasonable price after negotiation with a landlord. Near to the beach through unawatuna beach resort, no problem with access, only 2-3 minutes by walk.
Good value. Next to nor lanka a well.
