“Exceptional service and value for money!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We spent 2 nights at Unawatuna and were glad to have stayed at this guesthouse. Nalaka is an excellent host and he was always ready to take any questions we would pose to him, with a smile on his face. The location is just several minutes on foot from the beach, ensuring both accessibility and quietness at the same time. The bed was comfortable and I had great quality sleep on both nights. The shower was a delight too - good water pressure unlike those of the other guesthouses we had stayed at prior to arriving at Unawatuna. Breakfast was prepared by Nalaka's wife; generous portion and delicious too! Overall, superb value for money!

Minor minus point: Would be better if the staircase connecting the hall and the second floor has a railing for safety.

Nalaka and his wife were wonderful and friendly hosts. The guesthouse is about a 7 minute walk to the eastern beaches. The guesthouse is new with at the moment 4 rooms. The rooms are very nicely fitted out with 4 poster beds, mosquito nets, a/c, en suite bathrooms with good fittings and hot water. The food was delicious. The breakfasts were big. We also ate dinner at the guesthouse two nights which was lovely. Nalaka will help you with any travel request. He drove us back to Colombo airport during the night (a two and a half hour journey). Highly recommended!

Stayed here for one night in the rose room after booking through agoda. On arrival we were greeted with some fruit juice by the couple who have only recently opened up the place. What lovely people,They honestly could not do enough for us! Nothing was ever too much for them and made us feel like part of the family.The room itself was very big all new with nice on-suite and superking sized bed. The air con and fan were also great when we needed them. The breakfast was a mix of continental and Sri Lankan and was one of the best & biggest we had during our trip. Located Only a 2minute walk to beach road and then 5 to the beach. All in all great value and wish we could have stayed longer.
