The rooms are quite expensive (we paid around £50 per night as we booked 4 nights, that's around 10,000 rupees per night), but it was beautiful. Amazing shower, very large room, and balcony overlooking the bright blue sea. Wake up, have a swim, relax on a lounger, have a fresh lime juice, tan up. God I wish I was back there!!!
Had some really splendid fresh from the barbecue, with prawns as big as your forearm. Really good to see a lot of local people eating there at the weekend as well - always a good sign. Staff were very attentive, and I would recommend the Arrack (coconut) spirit - but beware the hangover.... They also have a very loud rave next door on a Friday til late, but don't complain about the noise - go and join in!!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are bigger but more expensive. All rooms are really, really nice.

i have heard about the place but wasnt sure about the rooms. Didnt expect to have decent rooms. It was cleaner than expected.View is amazing.but i thought room only $80 is bit too much for the place. Staff was helpful. Nothing special about the food. do not try the milkshake. wasn't good at all...

This place is right on the beach just above a restaurant. So when we were taken there we thought it would be an absolute dump! How wrong we were! The room we had was stunning! Flat screen TV, big double bed, amazing balcony to look over the stunning beach, and an amazing bathroom! Couldn't ask for more! We had one of the best 3 nights of our lives there, really living it up!

The guys that own the place were amazingly nice as well.

For young travellers that are here to enjoy themselves, this is the place to be. It isn't a family place, and nor does it pretend to be.

We got the place for $40 a night, which I know is 50% the norm, but it was also the low-season. This was incredible value for money for 3 of us!

One problem is the cleaning up, which isn't normally done, you need to ask them to do it especially.

But this place made Unawatuna for me. I was very happy to be there and experience the amazing beaches that Sri Lanka had to offer!

Like many other "joints" in Unawatuna I didn't expect lucky tuna to have decent rooms but I was completely in shock when i saw the rooms... It was quite good!!! However it is NOT a boutique hotel. that is quite a bit of an overstatement. Its just 4 rooms above the bar and restaurant!

IT is however clean. Hot water was available. check in and check out is both at 12.

As a local i'm quite used to not being given the same respect as foreigners when I go down south but I have say lucky tuna you took it to a different level. You completely ignored us. We had to wait for service for quite a while. then when the chips arrived it was cold!!! That was just the start... anyway we didn't stay too long because we went off to see the whales!!! but still don't think i'd come again...

Quite sad really!!!

After a nice swim, this place provided a good respite from the sun (while still being on the beach) and an amazing lunch. The grilled calamari and the prawn curry are both excellent! Service may be a little slow. It is a beach-shack after all.
