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.

This is an eco-resort with rooms fairly open to the elements but they were lovely clean rooms full of character with doors opening our for views across the canal and all its lush greenery. Its a small place but plenty of space between the individual rooms, so plenty of privacy. You sleep with the sound of nature and wake to the peace that is the Kaju Green.
Vegetarian food is lovely, simple, tasty and plenty of it as they are always willing to give you more and some nice fresh juices available.
Nuwaini is a delightful hostess, full of tips of where to go what to do and friendly without being overbearing.
Before arriving we had some concerns about mosquitoes being a possible problem but amazingly we saw possibly just two mosquitoes in our 4 day stay.
We can't wait to go back.

Outstanding place to stay....the service, beautiful lodges, the environment, delicious meals, tranquility, total relaxation, pool, access to bicycles and canoes. The management and staff led by Nuwani are efficient and unobtrusive...as a result you are ensured privacy at all times. Great tasting local food is cooked by Kanty ...and nothing seems to be too much trouble. We would throughly recommend Kaju Green to any visitors to Sri Lanka and local residents. The proximity to Unawatuna and Galle ensures that , whatever the weather, there is always somewhere to explore but you will probably not go far as this little oasis which will enchant you and ensure relaxation. Thank you Nuwani and your team for ensuring us a fantastic stay at Kaju Green and we hope very much, to be back soon!

Absolutely beautiful place. We cannot thank Nuwani enough for her hospitality, kindness, warmth and readiness to help. Thank you. As for the rooms, they are amazing..... Tastefully minimalist styling, very clean, and very comfortable, cleaned daily. The bathroom will be one of the nicest you'll have in Sri Lanka. The openness and airiness of the bungalow allows for an experience of being right at the foot of a lush jungle, a wonderful balance has been found here. Mosquito repellent and net is provided, but we actually faced fewer than expected. The vegetarian food is honestly delicious, it will leave you feeling satisfied and happy.... Though it is a little expensive to eat in, drinks and snacks throughout the day will be included. Staying here was really a pleasure, a wonderful experience for us. 😌🙏

Kaju Green is stunningly beautiful property with friendly, attentive staff. It is a small resort consisting of 8 suites, located on an island in the midst of a mangrove forrest. The rooms are minimal but beautiful, especially the bathrooms. There is hot water and each suite has its own filtration system for drinking water. The salt water pool is a delight, and the kayaks are a great way to explore the mangroves if you're up for a small adventure.

The staff make a concerted effort to anticipate your every need without being obtrusive.

We paid the USD $20 pp/day for one meal and all day snacks - it was so worth it! We thoroughly enjoyed the coffee, energy balls and little pots of curd and treacle. Dinners were fantastic and delicious. You won't miss the meat (it's a vegetarian resort). Gin and beer are also included. Breakfast is included and they are so generous with their offerings! You'll have a great start to the day!

They have thought of so many little details - a daily free tuk tuk ride to and from Unawatuna beach, and they even provide beach towels!

It is an eco resort so you will encounter bugs and mosquitoes. They provide natural bug repellent but anyone staying should be comfortable with the possibility of little creatures flying/crawling around, especially at night.

Kaju Green is so well designed that we were able feel a sense of isolation and tranquility despite several other guests sharing the pool and other common spaces. Given the opportunity, we would definitely visit again!

Such a beautiful location, very relaxing, picturesque and luxury setting. Interesting concept of being in a luxury bungalow but with partially open walls. I will be honest it can take a little bit of time to get used to but after 2 days it felt like jungle paradise! The setting and scenery is something very special, even though I am not a vegan the food was very magical & very tasty. The staff are very friendly and helpful with especially a big thank you must go to the manager Nuwani. She was very welcoming, warm and happy to solve any requests that you had to make your holiday be the very best it could be. The massage man was of the highest quality, a nice man and brilliant at his job. Very small improvements could be more sun loungers around the pool and a slightly bigger lounge area to relax. Would have liked yoga to have been a little more available but when we did get to do it this was a perfect & fantastic roof top location with an excellent yoga experience and teacher Jessmina (English lady) We had an amazing time and can highly recommend this resort, Sri Lanka in general we absolutely love, wonderfully warm people, very safe country, real beauty and amazing! Thank you Sri Lanka you are perfect 🙏🇱🇰♥️

We had the most fantastic stay! The hotel has an amazing location nearby to the main Unawatuna strip but far enough to be isolated amongst the mangroves and the Koggala Lake. They really take eco to another level and the well designed rooms and communal spaces are airy and impressive. Expect to be surrounded by so much greenery and relax in the natural water pool. Nuwani and the team couldn't have looked after us better and the free tuk tuk rides and kayaking are a definite plus! can't wait to go back :)

Me and my partner was on a hunt for nice hotels where we can relax since he was coming to Sri Lanka after two years.We found Kaju green from agoda.com and started liking the vibe,so we had to make a call.We called them and they were very welcoming and helpful.All our questions were answered without hesitation and they were very flexible with us.So we booked right away and once we entered the premises we were surprised by it.The photos we checked out on the internet was not enough to describe how lovely and peaceful the hotel was.We were warmly welcomed and every experience we had on the stay was perfect without a doubt.The whole veg meal , specially the breakfast was mouth watering and we enjoyed it so much.The food and the snacks we had were all perfectly made and they tasted heavenly.
The room,pool and the whole premises were very clean and the staff was very helpful.They were always around whenever we needed something and to be honest I’ve never seen such welcoming hoteliers in Sri lanka.The hospitality of these people was mind blowing;they made it a very comfortable stay for us so we didn’t have to worry about anything.
The activities they had were also very nice.We did the kayaking.At first we weren’t very sure about it because the two of us were only in the boat but once we were in water we slowly managed to do it and the experience was priceless.It was in the evening ,the clouds were heavy and the sky was grey ,it was me and my partner in the middle of a kadolana habitat rowing a boat.Can’t even express how happy we are for choosing this place.
We are so grateful to the staff for making our stay a Perfect one,specially Nuwani who was always there to answer whatever small question we had and the rest of the staff who fed us with perfect food,helped us while we were doing our activities and so on.We fell in love with the nature while enjoying the stay and most of the time we stayed by the pool or in the garden instead of just being indoors.
We hope to visit the place once again and stay for long as the first time we only stayed one night and it was totally not enough for both of us.
Thank you very much Kaju Green and Mrs.Nuwani Dias and the crew for making our stay a perfect one♥️

Nuwani and her team made our stay at Kaju so special. The team went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect stay! The food and ethos of the place is amazing. There were loads of tasty vegan options, the eco lodge uses sustainable materials - which is great touch. The location let us enjoy the tranquil nature around like mangroves, but was close enough to enjoy the beach’s such as Dallawella and head into Galle. Can’t recommend enough a must go if you’re going to Sri Lanka - and a great place to stay if you’re visiting Galle and want to get away from the hustle bustle!

Kaju Green has apparently some good reviews but I dont think it is worth the hype. The hotel is a small and relatively expensive hotel but I would not call it a luxury experience. Yes it is meant to be a "nature" experience but the rooms are very basic with limited decor and amenities, breakfast is very basic too. The room is VERY NOISY at night from insects / jungle sounds as well as other guests (as the rooms are basic open huts) so we could not sleep well. The manager attempted to make a few nice gestures but overall, she is rude and patronising and spoils the experience (as also noted by few other people in their reviews). For example, she always back answers, speaks rudely and is extremely patronising. She should not be managing a boutique hotel where you are meant to have a relaxing and welcoming experience.

The free kayaking / canoeing is okay but a very small area. The yoga is very expensive so again not worth it. Overall, with so many other boutique hotels in this area, I regret having spent a good amount of money here.

Read the bad reviews before you decide to stay at Kaju Green, even though there may be other good reviews.

Had a really relaxing time at Kaju Green with my hubs. The luscious gardens & pool were the highlight! The staff are great - lovely Cook makes delicious vegetarian cuisine & checks on you a lot to make sure you are taken care of & the Gardner is always full of smiles :)

The owners - Eugene & Denis are so lovely & kind, making sure we were ok at all times. Denis makes a delicious home made coconut ice cream!
Raw deserts are not usually my first pick but the deserts with dinner were fantastic.

The canoes are a great touch & you are minutes from the beach too.

Overall - a great stop for a few relaxing days.

Thanks guys, let us know when you are in Colombo!

Xx
