Gym in Unawatuna


Does anyone know of a gym in Unawatuna? We'll be staying at Hotel Flower Garden, and one of the reasons we booked it is because of the gym mentioned on their website. However, it now transpires that this doesn't exist! The manager says it will be built by April, which is after we go.

As an alternative does anyone know of a gym near there? Don't need anything flashy, just a decent treadmill and some weights would be a bonus. A quick google search shows somewhere called Friends and Fitness Sports Club - but can't find any details or pics or reviews etc. Has anyone visited it??

Would other hotels with gyms allow non-residents to pay to use their gym facilities?

Alternatively, does anyone have experience of running around there (looking to do 10 or so miles a day). Would it be safe to do so? Is it ok with the traffic? Will we get a lot of hassle?

Grateful if anyone has any tips!

Hi there,

You can most likely use the gym of UBR for a charge; could be combined in their pool pass.

There is a strenuous run possible which for 80% avoids the main road, going to Rumassala on the road to Jungle Beach and then returning for a small part along the main road. Maybe overall 5 miles, with ascends/descends upto 20%. Basically safe at daytime, no hassling.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
