Cocobay Unawatuna
Unawatuna,Unawatuna - View on map
"My partner and I stayed at this hotel for four nights in July during our 2.5 wk stay in Sri Lanka. The room we had booked was one of the ocean privilege suites and wow what a room it was, one of the best we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world!! It was very big and had a full wall of glass overlooking the fabulous private beach and across to Galle. The bathroom was amazing complete with Jacuzzi. We were given a pillow menu and soap menu on arrival which were nice touches. The sun loungers on the beach were really fabulous and gave that extra touch. The breakfasts were very good, not buffet, but served to order with plenty of options. We had lunch and dinner on a number of occasions during our stay and again the food was fabulous. We had a BBQ on the beach one night and this was a real treat. The staff at the hotel were amazing and couldn't do enough for you! The hotel is just a five/ten minute tuk tuk ride from Unawatuna beach and jungle beach which are beautiful. Galle town is only a ten minute trip and the fort walls are an amazing sight in the evening as the sun sets. There are plenty of excellent restaurants scattered around the old town. On the downside, the pool is very small & uninviting. It was monsoon when we were there and when an occasional shower came, the noisy metal roller doors surrounding the front of the restaurant had to be closed, making the place look like an industrial building. Overall we had an amazing stay at this hotel and would recommend it as one of the best boutique hotels not only in Sri Lanka, but anywhere! "

Thaproban Beach House
Unawatuna,Unawatuna - View on map
"my girlfriend and i stayed at thaproban beach house on new years eve 2012. pricey by sri lanka standards we got a decent room with an average view but great bathroom. the door on the room needed fixing and i think i could open it with a ice cream stick. the ac worked well but the wifi was down when we stayed. the price included a gala dinner - unfortunately we couldn't stay there without taking the new year feast option, which was great so we didn't mind. location wise you can't get better - it's at the quiet end of unawatuna beach. by that i mean you have maybe 15-20m to walk along the beach before you hit your first restaurant/bar...perfect. where thaproban beach house really excels is service. nuvvani on the front desk was fantastic and went out of her way to help us out. i had a problem with the powerpoints and she had someone at my room in under a minute. i also had to do some unscheduled travel and she arranged the hotel car to take me immediately. by the way, their driver is excellent and i'd definitely recommend using him to go between unawatuna and colombo if training isn't an option for you.

Thaproban Pavilion Resort and Spa
Unawatuna,Unawatuna - View on map
"My friend and I stayed here for 6 nights in a pool Pavillion room and we had the most incredible stay. The hotel was lovely and in a great setting next to the sea and only a short walk to the gorgeous beach! The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated. The pool area was great and so relaxing! The food was fab, breakfast was very good and we ate dinner here twice and had the most incredible sea food! Finally the staff were amazing, incredibly friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble to arrange. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking at hotels in unawatuna. This hotel will not disappoint!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

Dalawella Beach Resort by Deco
Unawatuna,Unawatuna - View on map
"This was an excellent place to stay. The rooms were very clean and the bed exceptionally comfortable. The beach in this area isn't large, but there is a small swimming area. It's a close tuk tuk ride to Unawatuna and Galle. On our last day, we ran into the chef in Galle. He took us around for 2 hours on his own time and showed us the best government-run shops, where to get authentic Sri Lankan goods, and brought us to an amazing restaurant whose profits benefit impoverished women. Would most certainly return."

Hotel Kabalana
Ahangama,Unawatuna - View on map
"it would be great if the hotels update if any facilities are going to be under maintenance and the duration they will be closed. I checked in only to be told the swimming pool was closed due maintenance. the beach was not accessible as the waves were choppy and rough. besides that, it was a nice stay. staff was polite and warm. only had breakfast which was nice. usual eggs and toast with coffee tea and fruits.

Levels Unawatuna
Unawatuna,Unawatuna - View on map
"Cantaloupe Levels provides you with more than what you'd expect. First and foremost, the view is phenomenal. Located on top of a hill, the hotel is first of its kind in Sri Lanka, basking a 3-floor structure with 9 luxury rooms. The hotel overlooks the Unawatuna Bay, providing you spectacular insight to the stunning beach landscape of the South. The view; both invites you to go down to the beach and bathe in its warm waters yet eludes you, so you'd rather watch its beauty from a distance. Another unique factor at Levels is it's tranquility; even though its location is prime property, it is the only hotel there and it is surrounded by beautiful lush greenery for miles. Thus enhancing your experience with a mix of adventure and serenity. The suites are grand and extend luxurious comfort; soft feather pillows, ultra-soothing mattress, Egyptian cotton linen, fresh simplistic bathroom with jacuzzi jets and rain-shower, his and her sinks. And the list of amenities are endless. The staff are friendly, pleasant and most importantly, obliging. The private concierge went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of (kudos Nuwan). Love the tri-colour pool. The breakfast menu is delectable with Continental, American and Sri Lankan options to select from, unfortunately didn't have the opportunity to have lunch or dinner there. All in all, great experience, beautiful hotel. Hats off Cantaloupe&Co on its creativity and class!! "

Sayura Beach Hotel
Thalpe,Unawatuna - View on map
"We were so excited to find this hotel after traveling for 10 days around Sri Lanka. Brand new hotel right on beachfront. Beachfront location is superb in small town of Unawatuna. Beautiful comfortable rooms and beds. Lovely balcony looking over the ocean. Cheap compared to other hotels of this standard in Sri Lanka. The staff are friendly. It's new so everything is very 'shiny' however there are a few kinks to iron out. Restaurant service is slow and complicated where it should be fast and easy. Food was just OK. Other things: In order for the air con to work, the balcony doors needed to be shut in a special way (which we couldn't work out) so we slept the night in a stuffy sweaty room at 2.30am we were able to go downstairs and find the night manager to close the doors for us and get the air turned on however immediately upon opening the doors in the morning we lost air con. And we were not able to close the doors properly to turn back on. Therefore the room remained a sweat box. They need to tell guests that the hot water needs to be turned on 5 minutes before showering as we couldn't figure out how to turn it on. Had to get dressed and go downstairs and ask for help. Note I say, go downstairs, as the telephone in the room does not dial reception. "

The Frangipani Tree by Edwards Collection
Thalpe,Unawatuna - View on map
"Great intimate boutique hotel with only 9 rooms. Great service (we were the only people staying during our 4 day trip) The staff are very friendly and attentive. The location is 5 minutes from Unawatuna and 15 minute from Galle, we hired scooters (the hotel arranged these) and explored easily with them. The beach is not for swimming as the sea is too rough but you can walk along the sand. There is a tennis court and long pool as well as sofas and areas for lounging around. Very nice atmosphere and very relaxing. The rooms are minimalist with no TV (there is a lounge with satellite TV) The food was great and rooms very well designed although the hotel was on the expensive side for Sri Lanka."
