Why 3 not 5 Star, it's not a 5 Star place, and it's not 5 Star prices!! Sri Gemunu Beach Resort is the genuine real deal, honest good value without pretence or BS. The Owner and the staff really take pride in ensuring things run smoothly, we felt immediately comfortable and at home. The Hotel is superbly located only 8km...

the is a lovely family run hotel. It has a beautiful setting and very close to a safe swimming beach. Something of a rarity in Sri Lanka. The half board rate is reasonable but for me it was just a nice feel. Aruna can be contacted through the hotel website and he will book your needs. Yes will go back...

Sri Gemunu Beach Resort is such a wonderful place, one of those few places you encounter that has everything: beautiful surroundings, beautiful garden, chefs who make the best Dhal, woks, curry, breakfast and a lot of other things. Friendly, caring staff and good nice rooms. We stayed three weeks and in our large family ages from 10-75 years and everyone...

The Sri Gemunu is a lovely family run hotel located in Dalawella Beach on the south coast of Sri Lanka. I have stayed 4 times at this hotel over the past 12 years and I'm happy to report that this hotel is improving with time! It's located south of Unawatuna and is a short ride to the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE...

We visited during Christmas with family and friends and were very satisfied with this friendly hotel. Very serviceminded staff, good food and good rooms and facilities. Good baths for both adults and children. We swam with turtles outside the beach. Strongly recommend for both family and couples!

Best and most friendly staff we have encountered during our Sri Lanka journey. Fantastic rock and sand beach location. Not really suited for children and no pool. Ideal for couples though. Rooms are not new and have suffered from the rough sea climate, but this is logical when your balcony is 20 m from the sea waves. We'll surely go...

My brother and I stayed here for 4 nights in the low season and were very impressed by the service, cleanliness and staff. The hotel is right on the beach away from Unawatuna (taxi ride 300 rupee) and has swimming area in the sea and a pool up the road that the hotel will drive you to. The menu was...

An absolutely wonderful resort on the best strip of beach along the entire coast. The staff are wonderful and the resort is in a fabulous location just out of Galle and Unawatuna but close enough to make a cheap tuk tuk ride. Lovely food and a superb setting. It really is the best choice for a holiday at the beach...

This is a casual,clean, good value and friendly establishment with not too many rooms. The location is great, just on the beach with a rock pool further away along the beach, so everybody can have a swim without being worried about strong waves. So relaxing on deck chairs under palm trees watching Indian Ocean waves breaking on on sand and...
