I stayed for six nights at the end of June and the standard of service and the quality of the rooms was the same excellent standard. I have found Palm Grove to be the most social and friendly guesthouse in Unawatuna. This is largely to the owners who stay very close to the business and are a wonderful source of information. They set a night standard for their staff.
If you travel from Colombo on the Expressway coach get off at the end of the expressway, don't stay on until Galle, there are always tuk tuks seeking business here.
- 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
