My husband and I stayed at Rockside Guesthouse and Cabanas for 3 nights in March as part of our honeymoon tour of Sri Lanka. We had climbed Adam’s peak in the early hours of the morning, and then endured a 7 hour journey to get to the south coast so were very happy to finally get to our destination! Rockside Cabanas is run by the Pussewala family; they all made us feel very welcome and offered us food and drinks on our arrival. We stayed in the garden bungalow which is slightly set back from the beach (only 15 metres so still very close) - the other two bungalows look right over the sea. The bungalows are very clean and spacious with modern, light and airy bathrooms to the rear. The home cooking on the menu is superb; most curry dishes come with side servings of vegetables, dahl and poppadums - there is enough food to two! Every morning, the very smiley youngest boy served us a breakfast of fresh fruit and cooked options on our veranda – a great way to start the day! The beach here is beautiful but if you did want a change of scenery, Unawatuna is a very short tuk-tuk ride away. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rockside and really didn’t want to leave as it was so relaxing. We especially enjoyed waking up to the sound of the sea, morning and sunset walks along the beach and relaxing with a couple of drinks on our veranda in the evening. Perfect!
