“SAFE CHOICE FOR UNAWATUNA”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

The hotel has a mix of accommodation from penthouses with small private pools to the cabanas. All are clean as is the pool and dining areas, although the mats on sunbeds always look grubby. The staff are generally young and very friendly, breakfast has an excellent choice with evening meals able to match the restuarants in town. The walk to the beach is hazardous down a long narrow road with no footpath and of course 100 mph tuk-tuks passing inches way! I would use Flower Garden again but one visit to Unawatuna is probably enough with so much else to see in Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: The room quality varies according to budget

Just so very friendly and nice. Nice pool. Great cuisine! Been twice now - some people have been over 20 visits!! Ate out once or twice but always enjoyed the food here better! Don't expect de luxe - still the nicest I have stayed in in Sri Lanka!

Stayed at the Flower Garden with my wife, son and his partner for eight days while we attended a friends wedding. The owner Sassi had us picked up from the airport and welcomed us on our arrival at the hotel. The cabanas where spotless and exceeded our expectations. The staff where excellent and very attentive. We had a lovely breakfast every day and Sassi organised our two day trip to Yala National park which was wonderful, staying at the Hotel Flower Garden by the lake near Yala. The beach at Unawatuna is five minutes walk away and Tuk Tuks are always outside the hotel to take you to other beaches or to Galle. We went every where in them and they are a great experience. A wonderful holiday!

I am going to try and be truthful so people get a better idea of what this hotel is really like.

Beautiful pool. This is actually the reception and restaurant area. The pool is large and there is very little space around it so there are only a few sun loungers which are all in the shade. Good for families so the children do not get exposed to to much sun. Ok if there is space and you want to relax in the shade, but no opportunity to sunbathe round the pool.

Restaurant is the hub of the hotel. Cant fault this in any way. Plenty of places to sit inside or outside with a beautiful view of the pool. Service and food are excellent and reflected in the price.
However it would be good if they tuned the radio into another station I got a bit tiered of very old country and western songs.

Rooms. There is a long walkway of Cabanas set back with there own front garden and veranda, they looked good. Then you reach a cluster of Cabanas and further on there is a block of I think 6 rooms. We stayed here at the back of the building upstairs overlooking the jungle. We had a large shared balcony with the room next door. We were there for 5 nights and did not see the occupants of the other room.
The room was great with the four poster bed. The largest shower room I have ever seen. To be honest the tiled shower tray area was passed its best however this did not bother me. I am a bit tiered of reading reviews of people finding fault. Unless its five star and you are paying that rate things are not going to be perfect or freshly decorated.
We loved the balcony. It overlooked a Sri lankan family living in the jungle, they often waved to us. To the right you could see the bats leaving the trees in the evening and returning during the morning. I think most people would assume they are birds. About 4.00 each afternoon the monkeys would appear and play in the trees. There was also a very interesting selection of birds.

The standards in this hotel are very good and it was very pleasant to return here after a day on the beach which is about a 10 minute walk passed some very interesting shops so being a woman it took me a little longer.
This hotel was offered to us by Elephant Island as a good place to have a beach stay after our tour and I was very pleased with this choice.
