Thaproban Pavilion Resort and Spa
Ranked #9 of 33 Hotels in Unawatuna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2014

A very charming luxurious and beautiful Hotel very close to Unawatuna beach and not far from Jungle beach. The staff are very attentive without being intrusive. I'm so glad we chose this hotel and would definately recommend it. The rooms are so spacious we even had a palm tree growing in our room. A very special retreat!

Room Tip: Maybe not directly by the pool

Arrived at this hotel without much knowledge about it as our tour operator arrange for us (me, my wife and our two daughters) to stay here for 2 nights ( 5-6 August, 2014). But this was our favorite among the four different hotels we stayed during our 8 days Sri Lanka trip. The seas-side swimming pool was the best where while swimming we were occasionally getting the splashes from the strong sea-waves. The duplex room with balcony on the 2nd floor was too good. The hotel staff were really nice...specially one guy (I can't remember his name though) who used to play cricket in England and spent 22 years in Europe knew exactly what we value most.
Only problem was that the sea beach was not attached to hotel. We had to take our car to the beach and my daughters were too tired to walk. I want to return to this hotel if opportunity arises.

We ended our 1st holiday in Sri Lanka staying here for four days and we absolutely loved it! Beautiful big modern 2nd floor room (has a lift though) looking out at the sea and the waves crashing on the rocks with spacious balcony that was as beautifully furnished as the room.
Pool was great and my hubby tried the small private beach area accessible from the pool too. He bathed in the rock pool while watching the waves crashing on the rocks just out from him.
Breakfast was excellent! I always ordered the fruit plate instead of the fruit juice and it was a feast, but the juice was fresh and served in beautiful glasses so I wouldn't say one was better than the other. Ordering the Sri Lankan breakfast the day before is an absolute must, YUM! We didn't eat any other meals in the resturant as it didn't have a view and there were so many options in Unawatuna, with many tables actually on the beach, loved them! Seafood exceptional there too.

Room Tip: Not sure about the other rooms, but the second floor has stunning sea views.

Dreamed of coming to this hotel last year and finally made it! The room is spacious and spotless. The bed is super comfy. Breakfast was delicious. The pool setting is beautiful and even though the place doesn't have a beach, you hardly miss it. The beach and restaurant strip is a short 10 minutes walk away.

Room Tip: The pool pavilion is a great room that opens out to a terrace right beside the pool. Plenty of space...

We just had a two week vacation here and we absolutely loved it. Great views of the ocean and a very homey feel to the place. There's a darling little natural rock pool in the grounds next to the hotel which is just perfect for a private tanning session or reading or even wading in the rock pool. This was my favourite place to be. It's even more romantic in the evening when the sun's setting and the lanterns are turned on. The Sri Lankan food served here was fantastic but for western dishes not so much. Something they could work on.

They do have a fresh catch everyday which they happily bring out so you can pick whatever you like. We tried crab, grouper, snapper and even lobster. Epic curries and their Sri Lankan breakfast is really good too. But the main stars here were the staff. Every single one of them were so sweet and helpful and they really do try and take care of anything at all to improve your stay. Shout outs to Chaminder and Sathya from the restaurant. A big thanks to everyone else who took such good care of us. Love, Priscilla and AJ.

The place has the potential to be much more, but the owner must improve the quality of the restaurant and the finish of the rooms a good deal before there is a fair balance between the price and the experience! Our feelings were shared by a number of other guests that we spoke to!
