Our peaceful property is fully staffed by our trusted property managers Dilusha and Shyama who are on hand to ensure your stay is as pleasant and trouble-free as possible. We are more than happy to consider any special requests or events you may have in mind to make your stay at Moonwater very, very special. This unique house was an original Sri Lankan plantation managers home that has now been renovated true to local design and architecture. Our fully air-conditioned Five bedrooms (four en-suite) spill out into the gardens and swimming pool and dining areas beyond. The open plan living areas welcome and invite conversation, companionship and laughter. It is a solid beach house that naturally flows from one living space to the other and has that unique style of combining both privacy and inviting open spaces for all-round entertainment. All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned as is the TV/Games room which are well stocked with a variety of video's plus there is fibre optic WIFI connectivity throughout. At the World Heritage site of Galle, an entire morning can be spent exploring the maze of narrow streets that are lined with Dutch and British Colonial era buildings that are still in use. Sturdy ramparts overlook Galle's international cricket stadium and a scattering of shops, art galleries, museums, boutique hotels and cafes are in abundance. Galle is a veritable Aladdin's treasure trove of gemstone shops, arty shops, cafe's and collectables and a visit not to be missed. If shopping isn't your thing, why not take trip to Wiyaya beach or a boat ride on Koggala lake where rural life unfolds and along the way visit a village temple or cinnamon estate. Whale watching, Elephant orphanages, moonstone mine exploration or a Sri Lankan safari are all on offer and we can help to arrange for your convenience. Snorkelling and Scuba diving is possible in Unawatuna Bay and there are also several surf points nearby. If you don't wish to venture far, you can spend your time locally in the magical and vibrant beachside village of Unawatuna sampling the cafes, restaurants and local craft and souvenir shops. You can sit at tables as the water laps at your feet or lie for hours on the sun lounges under the tropical sun. If you're travelling with a small child, the house is equipped with a travel cot, highchair, sand toys and children's indoor toys. We are sure you will enjoy your stay at Moonwater and are happy to answer any questions you may have. More

About the neighbourhood
Unawatuna was voted one of the best beaches by Lonely Planet. It is protected bay surrounded by shops and restaurants. Moonwater is a quiet retreat that is privately situated, yet within minutes, you are surrounded by the bussle of the village and beach. Quieter beaches also surround the bay area including Jungle Beach. The World Heritage site at Galle is a must visit and is full of eclectic shops, cafe's and excellent restaurants. Only 10 minutes away from Moonwater, you won't regret a trip there.
Getting around
If you require local transport, Dilusha and the team will organise the tuk-tuks for you that seat two adults comfortably and are a very economical way of getting around. Normally, the tuk tuk's will be with you in around 5 minutes of ordering them.
