Flower Garden Hotel
Ranked #11 of 33 Hotels in Unawatuna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 11, 2014

A lovely welcome drink and then taken to an amazing room. The Flower Garden is a beautiful hotel where staff are very attentive.
Our room was in the annex section. The room was spotless and had every amenity that you could need. Bathroom was different! Took us a while to work out the power shower and the jacuzzi bath!
Balcony was a good size, not a great view though.
Location of hotel is excellent as it's tucked away down a side street. It is a 10 minute walk to the beach.
The breakfast was ok. There was a good choice.
We would definitely stay there again when we return to Unawatuna.

Based on past TripAdvisor reviews, I was expecting an excellent experience in my recent stay in January 2014.

I don't know what has happened to Sassi's management of the hotel but current service standards are lacking. His reception and service staff are difficult to engage and they deliver marginal service. It is hard to imagine a more disinterested reception and service team. Every request is met with indifference and a reluctance to deliver service.

That being said, the grounds are reasonably maintained. The deluxe rooms are of mixed quality: the furniture and bed was good, but the large jacuzzi tub was broken and leaked. Requests for repair to the room were tardy and ineffective. After the first day of frustrating service, you just give up and bear with inconveniences.

Others, may have a difference experience.

Room Tip: Since the deluxe rooms had broken features, go for the lower cost rooms.

We had an amazing time in Flower Garden Hotel. Something went wrong with our booking, but the staff was extremely accomodating and bumped us up with a discount to their Deluxe Penthouse Suite, which let me tell you, has a bathtub to DROOL over (jacuzzi button, heyyyo).
Beautiful swimming pool, gorgeous garden, delicious food, close to the beach.

I would recommend this to everyone. Amazing place!

Room Tip: The Deluxe Penthouse Suite has a private swimming pool and a jacuzzi bath. It is also in a quieter p...

We have stayed there for 3 nights and it was great pleasure - clean, spacious, well maintained room, friendly staff made our stay great experience. Swimming pool clean, good food (one disadvantage - small offer for vegetarians) and charming area.

Room Tip: Better to choose cottages, on the other hand rooms are more spacious.

Went as 2 families with children and stayed for 2 nights.

Relaxing setup. Rooms were spacious and well maintained. It was individual cottage style rooms with a private garden and sitout.

The swimming pool was clean and well maintained.

The food served was excellent to european taste. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Arrived at evening to hundreds of live candles and a great atmosohere at the Flower Garden Hotel. Check in was ok - got a welcome drink and headed for the "Angi" room. Sweet beds, nice bathroom - all clean. Showers barely give any water, but part from that great value for nice and safe accommodation a km or so from the beach. Had dinner at the restaurant, western cuisine -food quite poor to be honest, accompanied by a dreadful band playing cheesy songs with a heavy accent. Quite a few of the guest seemingly enjoyed the show - but we truly regretted the choice of dinner location.. Breakfast on the other hand was ok and included nice fruit platter.

Having read most of the reviews most points already have been made so I can only echo some. We had a Cabana which was clean and cosy. There was a slight unfamiliar smell a bit like burnt wood. There were lots of Russian at the beginning of our stay and I suspect that they smoked in the Cabanas. You have to get use to the Russians smoking in the restaurant (between courses!!). Perhaps in future Sassi would consider segregating smokers in the restaurant and also having some non smoking Cabanas.
That said there is much to recommend this oasis - the pool and gardens are superb day and night! We really enjoyed the Cabana it was so homely. The restaurant has an extensive menu and is reasonably priced.The food was excellent, huge salad starters and ample choice mains. Breakfasts were brilliant. All staff were really friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel and would be happy to return.
