This hotel is a safe choice if you want to stay in a really nice place that is not too expensive. We especially liked the service which was flawless. The hotel have small bungalows (nb - not on the beach! The beach is a few minutes walk away) or normal rooms. We stayed in a bungalow and were very pleased. Big bed, high ceilings and a huge bathroom. Everything was very clean.

The restaurant was very good, although there where no Sri lankan food on the menu, which was a pity. Everyone in the staff speaks good English and I overheard the owner speaking German as well.

You can have different kinds of massage at the hotel. We tried the full body massage and liked it very much - professionally done.

The pool is big (even bigger hotels on Sri lanka usually have quite a small pool) and there are sunbeds.

Free wireless Internet in the restaurant/poolarea.

We enjoyed our stay here very much - it was quiet with perfect rooms, restaurant and staff. Do not hesitate to book (we booked solely because of this hotel's great reviews here)! Highly recommeded!!

We made an email reservation on the basis of the excellent reviews, but when we arrived Sassi told us he had no record of our booking for a Deluxe cabana. I was able to show him his confirmation email and after some debate he offered us a "deluxe room" at the back of the garden overlooking a stream and a run down neighbours property.

The room just about fitted a double bed and was stiflingly hot. The air-con was underpowered and totally ineffective as was the fan. He promised a move to a Deluxe Cabana at 10.00am the next day. The next day came and we were kept waiting until 1.00pm before being told the hotel was still full and we could not move. At that point we got into a tuk-tuk and headed down to the beach to stay in a simple breezy 1st floor room overlooking the sea for less than a third of the price.

You might be thinking this was a one off but during the short period of time we were there we met one German couple and one group of French people who had the same booking problem at this hotel.

The garden itself is attractive and well looked after but very hot as there is no airflow. It is very buggy, particularly after dusk when the mosquitos are busy.

Sassi had a smile on his face throughout, but showed no sympathy for our situation and took no responsibility for his mistake.

" To inform our lovely clients"


This reservation was made two days before arrival and we had clearly mention "we have only one room" available.
But when she walk to the hotel she was very rood to all of our clients and she walked to every cabana she wants and disturbing the clients in the cabanas and the pool area.
Even though we offered a very luxury Dlx room with all the facilities and she was happy and next day she had the breakfast and went to the beach.

When came back from the beach and she didn't mention that she is living and after some time we notice that she left the hotel without paying any of the bills and without knowing to the staff and this is the frist client out of flower garden came a cross.

Totaly she had posted a wrong review

This is a hidden gem! Sassi and his team are great. The Cabanas are cleaned every day with fresh towels and linen. The beds are comfortable and the fridge comes in very handy. The bathrooms are modern wet rooms with walk in showers – even the toilet paper is high quality. The air conditioning is a blessing during the hot and humid nights. It’s so quiet during the day or night that you can get your head down any time. The gardens are lush and beautiful: they have a gardener trimming, manicuring and watering all day. Breakfast can be taken at any time of the day – most days we had breakfast at 12.00 ish. All there fruit, curd, tea, coffee, toast, eggs, bacon and sausages: you must also try the hoppers and string hoppers with onion sambar! The waiters are all fantastic and come to your assistance for any request and always with a smile. Thanks to Prahmed, Amilla and Mahish. Oh yes and Lala the nicest gem salesman you will ever meet. There is a big clean pool with palm shade and pool side beds to relax on after a rough night – I recommend a prawn cocktail or two for brunch washed down with a white wine spritzer at the pool side. You may think this is not the place to have a steak (Asia that is) but you would be wrong the meat is exceptional!

To all my friends and friends I made by the dozen her – Horst & Annetta the funniest, nicest Germans I have ever encountered (of course your half Dutch though) – “Tonight’s gonna be a good night”. John & Babs (Barbara) the once again the funniest, nicest (Scousers) I have met – Did you find the real Lanka in the end La? Alex & (King) Hong + Baby Sam from Vietnam (Muswell Hill) travelling (pushing) the world on the crest of a wave! Lucy & Lorna for the last week a bit of eye candy! Heather & Michael hope you’re feeling strong Mike! Mark & Nicola (Kerrie) + Little Tulip I hope your maid got her T-shirt! To all the Russians who created such unrest (a new Easter & Western front in the restaurant seating) before their arrival and in the end they were the quietest best behaved of all of us – I loved the synchronised pool dances!

I will be returning everyone else stay away

Thanks to Sassi and all his staff who looked after our family and personally assisted me after travel dramas in New Delhi Airport. He continually contacted me to check on my delayed arrival and he arranged a safe airport pickup at midnight - thank goodness for Sassi!
I received the best welcome at the Flower Garden Villa and It is obvious that Sassi and staff focus on making all visitors feel most welcome with a smile.
Accommodation very comfortable and meals excellent.
Sassi helps organise daily activities and whatever you need to know to make your holiday most enjoyable.

We joined extended family in Unawatuna for a family wedding in Galle. The owner of the Flower Garden, Sassi, arranged for a pick-up from Colombo, and was there to provide us with literally anything else we required during our 5-day stay. The garden is beautiful, the rooms are uniquely designed, private and comfortable. The staff are a joy, and always had a ready smile and willingness to help in any way. Nine of our family stayed there and we felt like part of the Flower Garden family when we left. If you can bring yourself to leave the shaded lounges by the beautiful pool, and the cold beers under the fans, then Unawatuna Beach, and all it has to offer (which is a lot) is only a short stroll down the street.
