Motorcycled into town having read that The Villa is the place to stay. We were not disappointe. Great rooms, food and attentive staff. We were looked after by Buddhika who deserves every tip you can muster!
Enjoy your stay!

Stayed: May 2013, travelled with friends

We travelled down to Unawatuna first half of our holiday. We came to Sri Lanka last year but didn't get this far down. What a beautiful beach and the Villa is in a perfect location. The food is excellent. Rooms very clean. Staff very attentive. One waiter called "Bandara" was fantastic and deserves a mention. Recommend!!!

I have left this review already but had forgotten my password....

Room Tip: Don't book a whale trip through one of the waiters....

What a relief and refuge from the other somewhat soulless experiences we had. This is one of the best - if not the best - boutique hotels I've ever stayed in. The location is unbeatable and to my mind the best in Unawatuna...you step onto a soft green carpet of lawn from your room, which then leads you onto the beach and into the water. Bliss! The breakfasts are sublime, the staff are personable, engaging, friendly and speak excellent English. The manager is friendly, professional and helpful and there are no hidden, surprise costs when you get your bill. The ambience and its position in the bay make it my firm favourite. I could easily have spent all our days on the beach in front, or in the garden, or in our comfortable room without any need to venture elsewhere.
Finally, it is almost right opposite The Sanctuary Spa - the best place to destress in Unawatuna. I will definitely recommend this hotel to others, and should I ever find myself in this region again, it is the only place I will want to stay.

Room Tip: There is only one twin room, so if you and your travel buddy don't necessarily want to share a bed, make sure you request it!

We recently stayed at The Villa for 4 nights, after leaving The Peacock hotel because it was so disappointing.

The Villa was extremely pleasant - clean, nicely decorated, the bed was huge and the bathroom modern.

The staff were so professional and friendly, and the atmosphere was really nice - relaxed and pleasant.

The price seems a bit high given some of the cheaper options on the beach, but it's definitely worth it if you need a bit of comfort. A hotel with the same facilities and proximity to the beach in any other country would be hundreds of dollars a night.
