I was looking for a nice place to stay in Unawatuna to celebrate our wedding anniversary with my kids, everything that popped up seemed touristy and busy and then I found this place through the internet and I am glad we went with our instincts and chose this. Pragna and shama were very responsive and helpful right from the moment I spoke to them asking for rooms to till check out. Its a lovely place just across the beach to be chilled out and relaxed and has the warmest staff you can find. Meals including delicious rice and curry and the breakfast was a very good spread with delicious fresh fruits .
The pool was lovely and clean and there is no such thing as too much water around you! It simple road crossing that takes you to the beach where you can find a host of beach resorts with associated restaurants. The rooms were very simple and basic...coloured concrete and air conditioned. The most important thing for me was this was wonderful especially in a beach side accommodation - keeping it clean was simple. The little seating area outside each room was lovely to read and play with my kids.
Access to the hotel is very easy as it is fronting to Galle-Matara main road and access to the hotel premises is through a ancient building which is built way back in year 1735 in the dutch time in sri Lanka and it gives a feeling that you are entering to different world.Appearance, fixtures and fittings have been kept as it is and I could show the ancient architectural behavior to my kids.
Thank yo so much Pragna and your team for making my visit a memorable and pleasurable one.
Overall a perfect place to stay at Unawatuna and great value for money. Thanks..
