The Black Beauty guesthouse is a great option for those who want to enjoy the beaches of the South-West of Sri Lanka. Located in Unawatuna but outside of the main too-touristy core of the resort, it is located merely 30 meters from a smaller beach, which offers clean sea with easy access and a bit of authentic taste, at the difference of the main Una beach, which is a bit too globalised - it could be anywhere in Mallorca, the Canary Islands, or else. Jungle beach, the local greek-style beach is at 5 mins by tuk-tuk. The beautiful beach of Mirissa is some 30 minutes by bus. Galle, a beautiful picturesque Unesco town is 10 mins away by tuk-tuk.
If you love animals, you will be amazed every morning at breakfast, as you will be able to watch a great variety of birds, lots of chipmunks, smaller models of varans and monkeys having good time in the beautiful and neatly maintained garden with banana trees, coconut palmtrees, mango, papaya trees, orchids, jasmin, oleanders and lots more.
The service at Black Beauty is impeccable. A crew of local English-speaking employees is always there to help with anything, and always with a smile on their face. They are at the heart of success of the guesthouse. Our room was simple but clean, the beds were reasonably comfy for the local standards. Every room has a terrace or a balcony with a table and armchairs, much appreciated for an evening chillout.
Black Beauty is definitely a great address for travellers on budget who are not expecting great luxury but require cleanliness, good services and friendly atmosphere.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Many of our guesrs ask us why we chose such an unusual name for a Guest House in Sri Lanka. I read and enjoyed the book as a child ans was struck by the genuine character of Black Beauty. Here was a role model to be followed through life. He was well behaved, honest and thoughtful, always doing the best he could in every situation, wonderful skills we try to instill in our staff. The management chooses new team members with careful consideration and train them to reflect these characteristics. Our aim, over the last 20 years has been to provide the best service for our guests and through gentle and caring ways follow the example of Black Beauty. ... more less
