    I heard that this used to be a great beach.

    I heard that this used to be a great beach. Unfortunately I do not think it is today. Very exploited and there are many beach places renting out sunbeds. They can get away with having (very) crappy toilets because there are new tourists every day, they do not need a good review. Having dinner on the beach was a strange experience, started out good but then a large company came and occupied the space next to us, ordering champagne, oysters and lobsters like there was no tomorrow, and we were forgotten about. There are plenty of other beaches in Sri Lanka that are much better.

    Easy to get to Galle and Secret Beach. Lots of shopping and busyness. Much different feel to other popular spots in SL If it's rainy season, then get out in the morning. The rain usually comes in the afternoon

    It was one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka but the most crowded one. Also several gaming water sports are in this beach. The water is clean but a lot of cafes and restaurants in the area. We didn't like the service in one of those cafes. They tried to lied us with the bill and the owner was very rude. It is typical that kind of populated beach areas with a lot of restaurants and SPA services, as well as a night life..

    I liked the beach, lots of restaurants, shops for food, amazing dives, friendly people. Also it was really easy to access all necessary places. I liked diving-center Divinguru Unawatuna. Small restaurant The Bites had amazing Rotis and also rice dishes. Did not have long stay so most of it was spent in the water. For getting around use app Pick.me For snorkelling - not much to see. On my next visit, I would not expect to move around by foot so much as the motorbikes and tuk-tuk's are driving quite fast and the roads are curvy - so you need to pick a place to go over the road.

    Unawatuna continues to be a popular destination for families...

    Unawatuna continues to be a popular destination for families. Safe beaches and plenty of dinning options, but it has undoubtedly become much busier over the years so has lost some of that calmer charm. Easy distance to other beaches and plenty of accommodation types to choose from.

    Unawatuna is always a delightful experience.

    Unawatuna is always a delightful experience. As one single road takes you along the bay, it's quite convenient. The tasteful little cafes that dot the two sides of the road is an adventure in itself. And when you want to cross over to the beach you just hop over to one of the restaurants on the beach side of the road. The beach is great, good sea bathing spots and the bay lights up at night. Unawatuna is a great escape. A must visit.

    We were made to feel so welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Sumith and his team were wonderful and the chef served a wonderful breakfast and we had the best Sri Lanka curry whilst there. The hotel is so close to the beach, towels and mats are provided. The swimming pool was perfect for us, clean and relaxing, free rides to local beaches and Galle were available and the hotel is beautiful with interesting artefacts. The highlight was to meet Sumith's family and hear his niece serenade us. THANK YOU

    We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which had 2 bathrooms and was very spacious, perfect for a family. Two good size swimming pools and a short walk to the beach/main stretch of Unawatuna. The hotel also has a shuttle service to take you to the sister hotel on the beach if you didn’t want to walk. Breakfast was good with omelettes and scrambled eggs cooked fresh to order and a good selection of fruit, cereal etc. All staff members were very friendly and helpful.

    We stay in this hotel for a 3th time. It is a small hotel with beautiful garden and amazing view over the ocean and the waves crashing in the rocks. We stay in a cabana, which has a very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and large furnished veranda with view to the garden and the ocean. The staff are very friendly and provide perfect service. Very clean and properly kept. Beach is good for walking. Unawatuna is very short tuk-tuk drive away.

    This is a kind of place that I need to revisit. It was a lovely blissful evening there with the dying sun in the horizon. I'm too old to swim now but there is a nice place on the beach that anyone can give a try to swim in a safe environment. Hotel staff is really net and provided everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. I recommend this place for someone who's expecting a peaceful vibe on the beachside.

    Epic Unawatuna really impressed us. Our room was stylish and spotless, the bed was huge and the wifi was probably the best we had in Sri Lanka. The hotel is set off the busy main road so it's quiet but only a short walk from one end of Unawatuna beach. Everyone was lovely and helpful and we particularly want to thank Mahesh for making our stay such a laugh! We'd absolutely recommend staying here.

    It is known that the people of Sri Lanka are extremely friendly, but the level of hospitality and friendliness at this accomodation is simply unmatched. The hotel is beautifull, tidy, the rooms are extremely nice. The beach on which accomodation is situated was for us (couple of 2) the most beautiful in the whole of Sri Lanka. We definitely recommend it and will come again.

    Really lovely hotel, fantastic location and the service was brilliant! They had spare beach towels, hats and bags to make it easier to not get your things sandy, and free filtered water which was brilliant. We had such a long chat with the owner and he was so lovely and incredibly knowledgeable about Sri Lankan history and couldn't do enough for us!

    Literally the best place I've stayed in while in Sri Lanka. It is very clean and freshly renovated. Ruchira, the guy who runs the place is super helpful and just a pleasant person to be around. The location is good too, far away from the busy road that you don't heat it at all, but still close enough to the beach and the main town street in Unawatuna.

    Great hotel when visiting Unawatuna! It's located in the somewhat busy Main Street but the hotel is a really calm and relaxt place. We have chosen the bungalow which was great! We had our own terrace and a beautiful outside shower. Great value for money when you compare to other hotels at the South Coast of Sri Lanka.
