“Lovely location”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

We enjoyed our two night stay in this place. The room was was basic but comfortable. The hotel sits right on the beach, on a good sized plot, which allows a space for a nice shady garden area.
The staff is friendly and attentive.
Shame there is no pool in the hotel.

We stayed for a week wanting relaxation and we weren't disappointed!
So relieved we weren't in the resort of Unawatuna when we arrived as that seems to have been ruined.
Our room was not so big but most comfortable and well kept, with a lovely view out to sea. A very pleasant area with sunbeds and good service for cooling drinks we loved our days relaxing.
Personally I would prefer not to eat from buffets every night but I was charmed by he efforts that the staff made to ensure that I had a proper choice of vegetarian food both at dinner at breakfast. Also the changes were made with a BBQ one night and Chinese food another night.
A most beautiful beach to stay on and everything you need for a peaceful holiday enhanced by th e delightful and willing staff.

I have just come back from sri lanka, . we stayed at sri gemenu for 2 nights and 3 days. We would have stayed longer but had already booked dates further up the country. Sri gemenu is in a great location not far from Galle and Mirrissa , the beach at the rear of the hotel has snorkelling sunbatheing and body boarding/ surfing on the doorstep. We stayed in their chalet which is a short tuk tuk drive or 15 mins lovely walk. The garden there is so beautifull with amazing wildlife all around.We enjoyed meeting all the locals on our nice walks to and from the hotel.The staff and the owners are really nice. Please excuse the spelling if wrong. Aruna one of the brothers who owns the hotel, organized our trip and transfers by email, He normally lives in Germany, Padmini the manager was very nice and organized our transport to Mirrissa to see the whales. Maybe the hotel didnt have everything for some europeans but for the money it is very good and would go there again

i spent 5 days in this hotel, I had realy good time and did enjoy every day of this very relaxing place. the service was good, all the time checking after you if you need something. the best of it was I would say the location with nice lagoons around.

This was my 2nd visit to this hotel, which has two major advantages.

- Super location, just by the beach. The beach has a small lagoon protected by a reef, which is very child friendly as the sea in the lagoon doesn't have big waves. You can always go outside the lagoon, ifyou feel like playing in the waves (be careful though, strong currents can quickly pull you out to sea.

- The staff is very friendly, flexible and service minded, especially to our small children.

Will defiantly come back.

Just (regrettably) moved on from this great family run hotel today, what a find! Good, simple, clean and cool rooms. A wonderful beach, great service and fantastic food that puts some of the Islands top hotels to shame....! Thanks Aruna and Family for a lovely couple if nights - we will be back!

My partner and I stayed at Sri Gemunu for 4 nights. The first night there was a wedding at the hotel which we weren't informed of. The music continued late into the night and was extremely loud considering the small size of the wedding party. We had to ask several times for the music to be turned down as it was impossible to sleep. But apart from that, we had a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable time. The rooms are average for the price but the location is perfect - you can see sunrise and sunset from the hotel and there is an uncrowded surf break right out the front. Really idyllic spot, particularly if you want to be away from the bustle of Unawatuna. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
