We saw the Dunes hotel last year when it was in the final stages of construction and decided to check it out on our return this year. Recently built using materials sympathetic to its surroundings the Dunes sits just of the "Main Street" that runs through Unawatuna, very easy to miss it but its just past Piples Coffee Bar on the left. The owner has created a lovely quiet little haven, rooms are on 2 floors and to the best of my knowledge none have A/C but do have good fans that also have a swing feature that gets the air in the rooms moving nicely. The rooms all face a pond that has been populated with fish and small frogs .
Rooms are well appointed with good european standard mattress and pillows. The room we stayed in was of a good size with a nice modern en suite, water pressure was good and the supply of "hot" water seemed plentiful.
Breakfast is available but they only do evening meals if requested in advance. Tea, Coffee and soft drinks are reasonably priced. Definitely at the top end of the non A/C market but the extra is well worth it if you can live without A/C.
