Unawatuna Beach Resort is located on the scenic Unawatuna Beach on the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka. Galle is a short (probably 5km ?) drive away.
While we were staying at the Fortress Hotel (www.fortress.lk) at Koggala (10km from Unawatuna to the South) the rates for buffet, a-la-carte at that hotel were exorbidant. So we decided to look around for dining options....I had heard of UBR from the net, and also from other travelers for accomodation and food...so it was not a difficult choice to make.
The UBR offers rooms for accomodation and is located on the Unawatuna bay beach. The main restaurant of the hotel is located on the beach itself, and you have the option of sitting in the covered area or on the beach itself which is just outside the restaurant. At night they light lanterns and the atmosphere is excellent.
My family and myself visited UBR's restaurant for 3 nights in a row and were always happy and contented with the buffet selection for dinner....soup, a choice of salads, a choice of BBQ (fish, chicken, sausages) and a good variety of continental and sri lankan foods for the mains. The desserts were good in variety but lacked a bit in taste. Of course the Sri lankan fruits like pineapple, papaya and banana were as always excellent so even if the desserts were not too good, the fruits made up for it!
Service is also excellent with very friendly staff. The Chef Rajiv was roaming around and I spoke to him and complimented him on the offering and the excellent food.
The cost for a buffet dinner was LKR 1500 nett (about INR 700 or US$ 15) which is EXCELLENT value for money anywhere. I strongly recommend this restaurant - avoid the Cabana (or similar sounding name) down the same beach - we ate there one night and ended up spending LKR 6000 for lousy food and even lousier service.
