Dunes Unawatuna Hotel
Ranked #5 of 152 Unawatuna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 12, 2013

New place, it's been open for about two months and soooo worth it! The rooms are new and clean, the sheets are a crisp and white, big pillows and real mattresses! They have a common area with tables where you can have food and drinks and have a cheap laundry service. Good location, on the main road near restaurants and the beach. They have non a/c rooms, but the fans are powerful and we slept well.

The owner and staff are super nice. This place has yet to be discovered, the prices are low for the quality you get, so get there before it gets too popular (because it will!).

Its 7am...and I wake up to the sound of chirping of birds. I look out of my balcony and I am welcomed to the dawning of a serene new day. The owner..Gayan tells me that there are 10 different species of birds that frequent Dunes..and I think..oh what a lovely difference from the hustle..bustle..and cramped up experience you have on a typical over crowded beach.
This is my 2nd visit to Dunes...falling in love with the intricate detail of the main building. The owner Gayan says that everything on the property is specially made for Dunes..with the use of reused old timber and eco friendly structures. One of the attractions could be just a nice long chat with him ..who will share the story behind the building of Dunes. Pretty amazing!
Especially catered towards a budget friendly traveler, the place completely overshoots on luxury and comfort for the affordable rate given. Away from the beach (just a 5 min walk), the place gives you security, comfort along with serenity..to get the most of your stay in Unawatuna!

Stayed here with a bunch of friends just as Gayan was starting out. Super location,great service, tasteful decor, clean & comfortable rooms. The only thing that would have made the place better was if the rooms were air conditioned. Apart from that no faults. Look forward to in house menus. Will definitely return!

I spent a couple of days during the inital starting days without even knowing the name of the place, since the name board was not yet installed. A wonderful location, very tasteful designed, built and furnished and a perfect place to spend a couple of days. Gayan and his staff are very friendly and helpful.

Lovely and peaceful place with a beautiful energy!
Attention to detail and personal service by the owner.

Super cosy comfy rooms.
Looking forward to in-house dining (having had the honor of being the first breakfast guests)

We will be back and shall recommend the DUNES with pleasure.
