Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very friendly staff. I didn't book the hotel prior to the visit and just googled near by hotels with a swimming pool for our kids. They warmly welcomed us with such short notice which they didn't expect due to collapse of the entire hotel industry after COVID-19 pandemic.

Clean and fully equipped rooms.

This is a place you MUST stay for more days than one. The rooms are big and very clean. But the rooms are not the reason why you would like to stay here. It’s the hospitality and the kind people that help you. It’s called a home stay for a reason because within a few hours you’re already part of the family.
The facilities are well maintained and proper clean. The breakfast is so good and they have great tips to visit.
The location is perfect because you are out of the busy area near Galle but yet close to many great spots. They have some great contacts so you’d always be certain of a ride to a nice spot.

Clean large family room. Excellent dinner. Good location close to the beach. Great service and the outside space and pool is nice. You can hear the train when you are outside of the room. It did not disturb us at night. We couldn’t stay for breakfast unfortunately.

I contacted the hotel the day before arriving to confirm they would be collecting us from a prior accommodation to take us to Unawatuna. Several hours later, with less than 24 hours before I was to arrive the answer was no, we have Covid in the hotel and have closed. Now that will be sad for the hotel, and obviously they had to deal with that issue. But I got the impression that had I not contacted the hotel I would not have been informed of the fact they were closed and I would have been sat at my current hotel and no one would have collected me. Or if I made my own taxi arrangements I would have arrived to a closed door. Surely their first job on hearing they were to close would be to contact all customers due to arrive? They didn't.

Loved the hospitality of the owners here and we felt well looked after. It was the best property during our Sri Lanka holidays and we can recommend Abundia Villa to other travellers, I guess we will be back soon here.

Perfect location, beautiful pool, top breakfast and very close to the beach. What else you need! Loved it!

We had the most wonderful stay and experience at Abundia. From the moment we arrived we received a warm welcome and was kindly offered a room upgrade (free of charge)as we are a family of 4 with 2 young children. We were offered a ground floor poolside room which we all adored.
We were greeted with fresh fruit, delicious cakes and amazing samosas and watermelon juice.
Udzi and his staff attended to all our needs during our stay including arranging trips to Mirissa for Whale watching,a visit to a Turtle farm/ hatchery and transport to and from Galle. He also recommended places to eat and relax at the beach.
Just a short 10 minute tuk tuk ride from the beach makes Abundia a perfect location. The grounds and facilities were immaculate and our children loved watching and hearing the chipmunks, birds and other wildlife in the garden and were especially overwhelmed when a family/ troop of grey bearded Monkeys visited on 2 occasions to steal the bananas growing on the trees.
The effort which evidently goes into maintaining a high class standard of accomodation and service is most noticeable at breakfast time. Our children were in awe at how the volume of delicious fresh food was presented. The breakfast was the best we had in SriLanka including fresh fruit, pancakes, roti, eggs, cakes and toast- simply amazing.
We cannot recommend Abundia enough - it is suitable for all travellers.

Stayed 6 nights in Paradise... service from Gamini & his team was impeccable.
(5 stars)
Bedrooms big and spotlessly clean.
Nice pool & veranda to chill and only 5 mins by Tuk Tuk to the beach & all amenities.
Travelled all around the world & have to say you won’t find better service with a smile from the team at Abundia.
Treated me & my mate like part of the family and you can’t ask for more than that.
Definitely the place to stay if you are in Unawatuna.

Abundia is an impeccable home stay run by Mr Gamini and his family - it is an absolute must if staying in Unawatuna.

We have stayed in many 5 star properties all over the world, and this is possibly the best service we’ve ever experienced.

The rooms are very clean, and the home stay and gardens are kept in immaculate condition. Everything is beautiful - even the pool. Hot showers were a treat as was the air con.

Breakfast is the best we’ve had in Sri Lanka - huge fruit platter, omelette, tea, fresh juices, toast - eggs however you like. Sri Lankan breakfast was also an amazing experience - so much food!

Mr Gamini and his son are also kind enough to tell you what to visit locally, how to travel, and arrange any transport you may need.

It is a short 200rupee tuk tuk ride from the beach where a number of cool restaurants and bars are, however, our host also recommended a place to eat for lunch and dinner a few steps away from Abundia (both delicious and very cheap).

Overall fantastic stay and highly recommended.

Lovely famely run b&b with an amazing new pool. Comfy beds and clean room. Very nice (and very big) breakfast. Little further from the town, but Tuktuk is only 5 min and 200 rs and there are no tourists crowds. The family does everything they can to give you an excellent stay. We could stay a little longer than checkout to enjoy the pool some more, which was extremely nice and helpful.
