“Great hotel on great loction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2009

We stayed in the Bungalows in the ayurveda garden. This was excellent. Almost a private pool in the middle of the jungle and nice garden. If you want to go too the main hotel then you can walk or call for a free pick up. Of course you can book for a room with sea view in the main hotel building. Very nice staff who are going the extra mile for you. The sea is ok for small children. (Natural pool) and snorkeling.
Ok for longer stay.

Sri Gemunu provided us (parents and 14, 17 and 20 year old children) with the ideal end to a tour of Sri Lanka. The staff were unfailingly helpful, and did all they could to accommodate us. The beach was rather small at this time of year (off season - monsoon due to start). We did however benefit from the personal attention we got from the staff.

The hotel has a swimming pool about 800 metres away up a quiet lane. This provided us with hot sunbathing and coll swimming. The beach had more wind and therefore was cooler.

The rooms were clean and straightforward.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2009

The hotel is located right on a private, secluded beach by the Indian Ocean. We stayed there for 3 nights and 4 days.
The staff at this hotel could not do enough for us! They were extremely welcoming and friendly. My girlfriend and I were treated like family and will definitely go back next year.

The hotel is very clean, and the facilities are basic, but more than adequate. We ate at the hotel buffet each night and there was something different for all tastes.

I recommend going on the day trips to Kogalla lake and the turtle hachery. Also, the tea plantation was very interesting.

We went to Unawatuna beach one night as it was busier, but that was just to go gift shopping in the town.

There was a wedding at our resort as a couple staying there was getting married, All the guests were invited and we got to see an elephant!

So on the whole, I would highly recommend this hotel. I do not have anything negative to say about it. Perhaps the breakfast could be a bit more varied, however, I finished my plate each morning so I cant complain!

Well done Sri Gemunu for making our holiday a special one!
