Loved staying here, as a keen photographer I was in amazement of to the abundance of wildlife here, absolutely amazing. As a keen surfer it was great that there were many breaks to surf and paddleboard on. Easy waves at Sahana, nice paddleboard waves at Unawatuna and a bit bigger waves at Hikaduwa, Welligama & Midigamma to name a few.... More

I stayed at Palm Grove for 12 nights in July. This is the 5th or 6th time I have stayed here. I find Palm Grove very tranquil but very convenient for the beach and for visiting Galle.

Visited Palm Grove with three friends on a travelling trip. Palm Grove is a very quaint hostel with cosy rooms and a spacious dining/chill area. The hostel is located perfectly. The beach is a 3-5 minute walk away, which is ideal. We ate breakfast (scrambled eggs/ omelette..) at the hostel and it was delicious. Staff are incredibly friendly and caring.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palm Grove is located in an idyllic village setting. Very quiet setting. Away from the nightlife but still within walking distance to all locations. Only a 10 minute stroll to the shops,bars,restaurants and the beautiful bay of Unawatuna. There are many tours that you can take from Unawatuna to suit all tastes. The turtle hatchery is less than 20 minutes away, as is Koggala Lake where you can take a relaxing boat trip on the Lagoon and visit some of the small islands situated there. A three to four day tour will take you to Ella with its waterfalls, Nuwara Eliya with its tea plantations and greenery. The 'Temple of the Tooth' at Kandy and the nearby 'Elephant Orphanage' are also well worth a visit. ... more   less
