My wife and I started our honeymoon at the Tropical Retreat and it was perfect! The location is away from the hustle and bustle; it really makes you feel like you are far away in the jungle when you're only minutes away from town. Our room had everything we needed and they even brought us coffee to enjoy on our balcony. Everything at this place was well thought out between the decorum, books, and games. The service was impeccable! They accommodated our every need; they even served us breakfast at 5:00 AM before we went whale watching. We've never stayed at a place that has provided that kind of service. Malith, the owner, cares about your stay and offers great advice on what to do or where to eat. Sarath, the chef, cooked us an amazing meal (even his tuna fish lunch sandwich was on point). Pathum and Anuska were very accommodating and provided us service at all times whether it was to provide us a tuk-tuk or fix our TV. Thank you everyone! This is the place to be! You won't regret it!

Excellent service ”
We stayed at the top floor with beautiful tropical view. The staffs were very friendly, attentive and helpful. Its 5 minutes to the beach and 10 minutes to the fort by tuktuk. I would definitely recommend people staying here.

Nice, quiet place to stay but far from the beach”
Great bfast, pool, nice added touches in the room
Nice place to stay. Need a tuk tuk to the beach. Hotel charges 300R but price is 150 around town. Lots of nice added touches in the room (hair dryer, robes, toothbrush and paste, etc). Rooms are small and balconies even smaller. Staff are friendly but never available. I had to seek them out each and every time. Cleaned the pool myself before using. Nice bfast.

Wonderful stay at the Tropical Retreat!! ”
The staff, the location and setting, the food were all amazing!
We have just stayed for 4 nights at this hotel and had a wonderful time! The hotel is a small boutique guest house with only 5 rooms set amongst the jungle - the setting is perfect, beautiful surroundings away from the busyness of the main beach in Unawatuna, but only a short tuk tuk ride away (the main beach area is only a 250 rupee tuk tuk away and the hotel owns it's own tuk tuk available for whenever guests need a ride).
The rooms are lovely and the beds are very comfortable - there are also 2 suites in the hotel which looked really luxurious, all of the rooms have a balcony looking over the jungle. The pool here is also lovely and surrounded by palm trees.
The owner here is a lovely man named Malith who will go above and beyond to ensure that your stay is perfect - we often laid in until about 11.30am and yet Malith was still there when we surfaced to prepare us a delicious breakfast which included fresh fruits from the surrounding gardens. Nothing was too much for Malith - he gave us good advice on where to go and what to do and also arranged our whale watching trip for us.
We ate at the hotel one night and it was an amazing dinner! Malith and the chef prepared a 3 course meal for us with fresh seafood and ingredients from the local garden - it was delicious (especially the banana pudding!). The fresh Sri Lankan tea and coffee was also some of the best which we had whilst we were in Sri Lanka.
We highly recommend this beautiful hotel and will certainly go back!

The Room, The Service, The Greenery Around
So this place wasn't our first choice when it came to staying in Unawatuna since we were looking at a property on the beach, but in hindsight I'm so glad I came to stay here! Tropical Retreat is one of hidden away, small boutique kind of hotels. Tucked away from the sea and surrounded by greenery it has a really nice feel to it. The manager Malit is a really friendly and helpful chap. The service at the place is prompt. The rooms are very comfortable (the WiFi in the rooms could be better to be honest). Breakfast is good. Overall I like this place and will recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind an option that isn't on the beach.

Great Place to Relax and Unwind”
The pool was big and enjoyable. The food was very good and made to suit your taste. The staff was very welcoming and always aim to please their guests.
My stay at Tropical Retreat was very nice. The manager and chef always were very mindful of my needs and did whatever they could to make me happy. I was completely relaxed from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. The hotel can arrange for transport, tours, meals, recommend shopping spots, and even bring your morning coffee to your balcony. Since the hotel has a small number of rooms, you can expect the one on one attention you seek on holidays. From stocking the fridge with my favorite beverage to setting up my whale watching adventure, this staff was on top of their game.
When I go on holiday I seek #1 comfort, #2 friendliness, and #3 fun things to do. With the hotels staff and proximity to the beach, shops, and cultural hot spots...if this is what you seek, Tropical Retreat is the place to stay.

Nous avons séjourné dans cet Hôtel. Le cadre est agréable. Le tropical retreat possède un charme qui ferait des envieux a tout les Hôtels de la regions !
Il est certes petit Hôtel, mais il permet c'est ce qui fait sa force. C'est un calme parfait.
Les chambres sont bien aménagés. Il y a des moustiquaires pour se protéger.
Il y a une piscine qui est très bien entretenu. Un membre du personnel s'en occupe régulièrement.
Je souhaite remercier Malith pour son hospitalité, sa grande expérience en hôtellerie et ses qualités de manager. Également un grand merci à son équipe et particulièrement a son chef cuisinier pour sa gentillesse.
Pour conclure, je n'ai rien à reprocher à cette établissement.
