My fiancé and I really enjoyed our 4 nights at Dunes. We felt sad when it was time for us to leave!
At Dunes Unawatuna, you don't feel like you're staying at a hotel. You feel like you're staying at a friends house! It's set back off the street, so it is rather quiet and secluded, but a 2 minute walk brings you to the beach. The building is new, clean, and very stylish. I really felt like I should be paying more! The surroundings are a work in progress, but lovely nonetheless. I know in no time the pond area will be just amazing. The morning we left, the pond was being expanded, and two days before that, they had adopted three ducks! This is a really wonderful place to sit back on the patio or balcony, and appreciate the nature around you. We saw so many interesting birds, squirrels, mongooses (mongeese?) and teeny tiny froglets.
The building is somewhat open at the ceiling, which at first I thought would mean our room would be full of creepy things. Not the case! It ended up being a very cool temperature, even with just a fan, and we didn't have any more "visitors" than any of the other hotels we stayed in in SL.
Unawatuna was our favorite place in SL, and part of that is thanks to Dunes. We had a terrible time in Negombo when we first arrived, but our stay here showed us how great SL can be. We will definitely be back! I am really excited to see how the place grows, and I hope the room rates don't grow too much either ;)
Thanks for an amazing stay!!
