“A great place to stay in unawatuna”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

We have stayed several times since 1993 and will be back. Tranquil, friendly, in a good position for the beach and restaurants. It is like going to stay with friends, the hard part is leaving.

We are coming back almost every two year from 1996 till now. And its like coming home.
Asoka place is the best to stay in Unawatuna the garden the whole suroundings are perfect. My children like it very much, so if you consider to go to Unawatuna check Strand.

We've been traveling around Asia for 6 months, and when we stumbled upon this home stay in Unawatuna, Sri Lanka, we knew we'd found something special. Beautiful room in a beautiful house, set just in land from the main beach (check out the pictures and review above). The owners are super friendly and really made us feel at home. Hilda can also cook a fantastic curry! Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Unawatuna, looking for chilled out digs with a touch of Sri Lankan history thrown in.

After 3 weeks in Sri Lanka I found this oasis in Unawatuna. A charming colonial style home run by owners Hilda and Asoka. Set in a tranquil, lush tropical garden near the beach.
We stayed in the Blue room which opens onto the garden on one side and the Loggio on the other. Renovated after the tsunami but still retaining period ambiance architecturally.
Four poster beds, tiled floors, paneled doors and windows, planters chairs the works.
wi-fi zone, hot water shower in some rooms also 1 A/C suite.
