“Paradise found!”
Reviewed March 11, 2008

This is the best Hotel in Unawatuna Bay, Sri Lanka, I ever checked out!
It's so still and also very closed to the sea.You can reach the beach in only one minute.The rooms are very well appointed.And you can choose between AC and No AC rooms. Hot water is standart in the rooms. What I can advise is the very very delicious food. So you don't have to go to any restaurant, better you stay there for lunch and dinner. They offer everything, from local-food to western-food and everything in a top quality.
Also the family with their children are so nice and hospitable.
They really try to make you a perfect holidays.
So it's not hard to feel good and enjoy your time at Unawatuna Beach.

Just get yourselves out there!!!

The Nor Lanka Guest house is just a minute's walk from the amazingly beautiful Unawatuna Beach. It is new, smart, very clean and great value for money - with the best showers we found in Sri Lanka! (and we had just come from the fabulous Sun House in Galle!!!)

The owners and staff are really welcoming and helpful and the location is fantastic. Lovely garden, almost on the beach but quiet and peaceful - if you don't mind being woken in the morning by the monkeys in the trees behind!

Rooms are spacious and comfortable with balconies and really good bathrooms. Simply furnished but what more do you need?

We had been told what a great breakfast egg hoppas were but after nearly three weeks in Sri Lanka had failed to have any. The owner was more than happy to agree to our request for hoppas for breakfast - but remember she needs a days notice to prepare the mixture. They were just great - freshly cooked, plentiful and excellent.

The only downside was that we only had a couple of days there and were the only guests - what a waste of a fabulous place!! !

What they need is for you to get out there and give them your business!!! You won't regret it. We will be back just as soon as we can afford it.

This is a great hotel just a few minutes walk from the beach. The owners are very friendly and incredibly helpful. They made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and helped us with arranging travel around the island. The food here is also great with a variety on the menu. The rooms are a good size and very clean and come with mosquito nets, which were invaluable. I would definately reccommend this hotel to anyone thinking of staying in Unawatuna, including those travelling with children.

A family run business where you will experience a very accomodationg and friendly stay.

The SL wife and Norwegian husband own and run the hotel independantly and go out of their way to ensure you feel at home.

They are very laid back so do not intrude on your stay at all but will provide anything you ask for.

2 minutes away via the Unawatuna Beach Resort is one of the best beaches in the WORLD. That is not an over statement.

From this beach you can use several bars and hotels witjout leaving the beach.

Take you sandals, shorts, t-shirst and a few dollars. You need nothing else for the most fantastic experience.

Nor Lanks breakfast is cooked fresh for you and is wonderful. You do need to order for the evening well in advance if you wish to have dinner here. I recommend you give the menu a try.

The hotel children are charming, very quiet and can actually add to your experience if you get to know them. (This fact should not be under valued from me because I do not normally get on with kids.)

This hotel offers an excellent quality airport transfer which is important because it is 4 hours from the airport.

The only down side is this hotel is tucked away a little and offers no pool etc. This is a very good value hotel so these extras would not be expected at only about $30 per night

  • Liked — The hosts running the hotel
  • Disliked — The hotel dog can bark early in the morning.
