Thaproban Pavilion Resort and Spa
Ranked #8 of 33 Hotels in Unawatuna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Although the resort had only opened a month before and there were a few final touches still being finished. We were incredibly happy with all aspects of the property.

The rooms are enormous and fit myself my husband and 3 kids comfortably, the largest family rooms I think I have ever experienced.

The level and warmth of service is was first class and nothing was too much trouble.

Will keep it brief because it really is the best property at this point in Unawatuna. We are regular visitors to Unawatuna and this will be our choice in the future.

My only negative comment - is the coffee.

I was pleased with our stay at Thaproban Pavilion Resort and Spa. The hotel is brand new and well done; the food was excellent with a mix of Sri Lankan and international cuisine; the pool area and faux beach fun for the kids. And the service was outstanding. This newly-opened hotel still had a number of finishing touches to make as of March 2013 but I'm sure these will be made over the coming months. The only knock is that the place is not directly on the beach, requiring a 5 minute walk to get to the end of Unawatuna Beach (and the less desirable end at that). A hotel shuttle via auto-rickshaw could quickly solve that issue though. Overall I definitely recommend this place, just know that it's a few minutes off the beach and hidden among the Unawatuna alleyways.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review and we appreciate your time spent on our recommendation. The location of the hotel is actually a plus point as Unawatuna can get quiet noisy at nights due to night clubs which are operating in the area, where as Thaproban Pavilion Resort is located you will not have any disturbances and you can experience the quiet and charming surroundings of the hotel.
