            Lovely location and beautiful premises”
            Thambapanni Retreat is perfectly locatec; not too close to the beach promenade and the hustle and bustle, but close enough to get there by foot. The design concept is good and the rooms are lovingly appointed. I had a grand deluxe room which was very quiet and spacious and had a lovely large balcony. The Spa services are good and it was peaceful to sit in the restaurant, while it rained outside. Staff were all very friendly and helpful!

            Peaceful retreat with friendly staff”
            We enjoyed our stay at Thambapanni Retreat. It was located within 10 minutes walk to the beach, which had a range of restaurants to choose from. The staff were wonderful with our 20-month-old daughter, who enjoyed lots of cuddles and loved playing with them. The room was clean, comfortable and a good size (we were able to easily fit our travel cot in). Our room had a skylight, which didn't bother us but may not suit some. The bathrooms were equipped with modern fittings and had good water pressure/hot water supply. Rooms were cleaned daily. The breakfast had a decent variety of food, with eggs and bacon available on request, we enjoyed the fish and chicken curries in particular. The pool was shaded by trees providing protection from the sun and had 4-5 sun lounges. The hotel offered daily yoga classes for an additional 1000SR. The wifi was so-so and would drop out completely during a storm, but we found this all throughout Sri Lanka. A great place for a relaxing break.

            Really nice stay at this hotel. It’s a bit off the busy activity of Unawatuna in a quiet little corner in the jungle. The arrival Is beautiful when you see the beautiful trees and the swimming pool. It’s a shame that they keep the « beware wet floor » constantly next to the pool, it visually ruins the set up. The staff was really nice and helpful even though the réception has a view right on the swimming pool so you feel a bit watched, especially if you are a woman. We got lucky and got upgraded on the first night because réservations got mixed up. Both rooms were nicely decorated with beautiful and practical bathroom (with water pressure! Yeah!).. Overall a good experience but they could really improve the breakfast. Continental is kind of lame in 2018 and not even a breakfast that people or tourists enjoy. More fresh fruits, some granola, seeds, more options for eggs, some freshly mixed juices etc... there are so many ways to improve and make you feel that you have options).

            Lovely hotel. VERY narrow street leading to the premises ”
            Beautiful hotel with lush greens. Spacious room with semi outdoor bathroom. Decent options for breakfast. Although I'd stay clear of seafood dinner having tried the seafood platter. The only way to get to the hotel is through a very narrow lane. Thought we had to walk to the hotel but our Lankan driver somehow managed to squeeze a Toyota through a lane that seemingly wide enough for tuk-tuk only.

            Thambapanni Retreat is close to everything including the busy action but once you reach the grounds of the hotel it's very quiet and peaceful. We easily tuk tuked to Galle (about 6 k's away) and walked to the local beach, shopping and restaurants. We had the double deluxe room which was clean and large but quite dark. Next time we'd pay more and get a room above the pool which seems lighter. Lovely atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff and good restaurant. One of the hotels on our trip we would recommend to friends.

            This is our 2nd stay at this hotel. The staff work tirelessly to make you feel comfortable, the hotel is beautiful and the shaded pool was perfect for our two young children to cool off in. The staff couldn't do any more to make the children happy. The child friendly beach is only a few minutes walk down a quiet road and the hotel is located on the way to Jungle Beach, a walk we did a few times with the children.

            Thambapanni Retreat can be found in a quite and relaxing spot just of the busy Beach Road. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Massage and spa treatments are on site but need to be booked in advance, sometime as much as a day in busy periods. The location is close to the beach and about 3km to Galle Fort. Highly recommended for a mid priced venue with easy access to everything you need.
