The best place to stay in Unawatuna”
View, Space, Host
Although you most likely need to take a tuktuk up to the place (200-300 rupees), the view and the privacy you have is very much worth it. Make sure to book the top apartment so that you can have the best view to the ocean. there is also your own kitchen where you can prepare your own breakfast which is provided by Lara (simple things like toast, eggs, jam, coffee, amazing fruits). Highly recommended if you want to get away from all the tourists and have the perfect view of the ocean. Lara is a wonderful host and will make sure that you have a comfortable stay.

Like staying in an art gallery ”
The view, the quality of the room, friendliness of the staff
The view from Laras Place was magnificent, after a morning of walking and site seeing it was great to just relax on the large balcony and enjoy the view. Despite being up a quite steep hill, I found the walk down to the beach very enjoyable, and where it joins the main road is a bus top which takes you into Galle for 20 LKR or down to Matara for 60 LKR. The food at Laras Place was quite exceptional. The breakfast every morning was huge with beautiful fruits, eggs cooked to order and toast and coffee etc... I ordered dinner at Laras one night and tried the Sri Lankan vegetarian curry. Well it was magnificent, lovingly made and a quantity for several people. I found the staff very friendly, and Lara the owner a delight to talk to. Every day they would fill up the fridge with my favourite beers. I felt like I was a part of the family at Lara's. A delight.

A pleasant relaxing surprise!”
super clean rooms with nice furniture! Nice view from top of the hill on the ocean, very good breakfast served in front of the room on the terrace! Nice and kind staff!
Despite initial difficulties in finding the place up on the hill (no signs along the road), it was worth The search! We had a very nice stay and would highly recommended to anyone staying in Unawatuna. 10 min walking downhill to the beach!

Coastal break after the hill country”
Location above the overdeveloped Unawatuna beach, helpful staff and good Sri Lankan food
A friendly welcome in a lovely location with surrounding trees and overlooking the ocean. There is good access by bus and tuk tuk to local places of interest such as the Virgin white tea factory turtle farm and folk museum and the meals were very enjoyable. Definitely recommend for anyone contemplating staying at Unawatuna.

Best place to stay in Unawatuna!!!”
Big veranda, brand new rooms, really good breakfast!!
The rooms are with ocean view up on a small hill. Just a 10 min walk to the beach. Everything seems brand new. Bathroom and Bed really fantastic. Hotel owner very helpful, really great coffee, which is hard to find in Sri Lanka!!! I would recommend a TUK TUK at night, surroundings a bit dark:-))) I would recommend to a friend!!!!!

Lovely ”
Comfort, Food, Friendly staff
We didnt realize that it was up a hill but it was fine in the end--it's only a 15 minute walk to town. Just a note- We had trouble with the tuktuk drivers negotiating a reasonable price to the place. The room was amazing though! Very posh! And we were pleased that it came with tea! The shower was hot, very hot and the AC worked well. The best part of it for us though was probably the breakfast. I had the Sri Lankan breakfast and it was killer. He had the western breakfast, which came with a delightful fruit platter! If you dont mind staying a little out of the way (not beachfront) then we'd definitely recommend staying here! Well worth it!

Food/Lara himself/Comfort
Lara's place was wonderful! Its situated up a hill which gives you an incredible view to wake up to in the morning. This was by far the best value place we stayed in Sri Lanka. Everything we needed was provided. There was tea and coffee in the room along with fridge and a safe. The food was prompt and so fresh every morning. Lara (the owner) was so helpful, organising taxis, tuktuk, an iron for a shirt (no hair dryer but its way too hot for that!), washing, extra food, advice etc, he really made the whole experience great. The rooms where lovely also, comfy beds, lovely sheets, very clean, hangers, awesome bathroom etc. Really really awesome place, highly recommend, would happy go back!

Nice View Guesthouse”
wide view, clean rooms, nice breakfast
We stayed only two nights but we would stay longer if we had the chance. The view is amazing and we enjoyed each minute. It is quite hard to get up the hill for Tuk Tuks but the managed it perfectly :-) The area is quite and a good base to relaxe. Lara offers a good breakfast and her laundry service is good as well. The is no point to criticize.

Unser Zimmer war schlicht und pur gestaltet und sehr sauber.Es war ein Erlebnis auf der geschmackvoll eingerichteten Terasse zu frühstücken.Der Besitzer und seine Familie waren ausgesprochen nett.Mein Mann bekam am ersten Abend einen Teller "fried rice" als Kostprobe.
