A lovely hotel with great staff
AdrianmwH [TA], , London, United Kingdom

I very much enjoyed my stay here, the staff are most welcoming, special mention to Tashma and Nuwani on recepetion who were very helpful and answered every question with a lovely smile. Just what you need after 11 hours in a plane !
The rooms are spacious and clean, the food in the restaurant is consistently good, I had breakfast every day, lunch and dinner several times, all excellent, both quality of food and service.
The hotel is situated an easy five minutes stroll from Unawatuna beach, and even at low season when I visited, there were lots of choices of beach restaurant available. I will certainly retrurn, it is a great spot !

A paradise amidst a chaotic array of shops, restaurents & guest houses!
De_Silva2... [TA], , Colombo, Sri Lanka

We stayed one night in this beautiful hotel. It is really a retreat with so much greenery around and pleasing architecture wherever you look around. The staff are extremely friendly and it is evident that the management are taking the right steps to make it a different kind of a hotel, which is the need of the area. When you enter the place, you feel that you are in a different place (away from the busy touristic beach area of Unawatuna) and you are able to truly enjoy peaceful relaxation. The room is quite spacious and comfortable.
Perhaps, the hotel maybe able to upgrade the television reception to enable the guests to enjoy more channels as we were able to view only 3 channels.

Hidden Gem - couldn't recommend enough!
Gemma S [TA], , Leeds, United Kingdom

After just over a week travelling around Columbo, Kandy and Sigiriya we were looking forward to a relaxing weeks stay by the beach. We were so pleased when we arrived at this hotel!

It felt completely like a private retreat on the edge of the jungle. Located just five minutes walk from the beach and loads of bars and restaurants nearby it was perfect.

We travelled as a family and stayed in 2 separate bedrooms separated by our own huge balcony. Both bedrooms were lovely, clean, well air conditioned and scented with gorgeous cinnamon oil.

The pool was very clean and we had it to ourselves most days. Monkeys visit late afternoon everyday climbing through the trees above you. We were also lucky to spot a chameleon in the bushes.

Breakfast was plentiful every morning with a selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, honey and juices in addition to a choice of cooked breakfast off the menu and tea or coffee.

We stayed in April during Buddist New Year and following an impressive special new year breakfast we decided to have dinner at the hotel restaurant that evening. Although more expensive than most of the restaurants in the area it was definately the nicest of our stay with a huge buffet selection with fresh ingredients and gorgeous fish. There was also live music and fireworks which was a nice touch.

I also enjoyed a massage at the hotel which was incredibly relaxing (and cheap!)

We had a look at other hotels in the area while we there and none of them looked like they matched ours and for the price we couldn't believe our luck!

Thank you to all the brilliant and welcoming staff at Thambapanni Retreat for making our stay so special, I hope to visit again in the future!

Room 18 - my little retreat
Janice N [TA], ,

I had stayed at an awful hotel in Ella so when I was shown my room I was pleasantly surprised and sad that it was for only one night.

The customer service was very good. Being a female solo traveller I appreciated that the hotel made special arrangements for me to eat in the restaurant with my tour guide / driver and have complimentary drinks. I was able to sample the amazing seafood and although there were not that many guests staying at hotel, I actually loved it and the staff spent time chatting to me over dinner and breakfast which was a highlight for me.

I wouldn't mind coming back again during low season just to try out the pool, yoga and the treatments. It is definitely my sort of retreat to chill out.

Super staff
Georgie K [TA], ,

Booked to stay for one night and ended up staying 6! Staff couldn't do enough to help us.
Stayed as a group of 3 girls in a triple room - really spacious room and lovely bathroom.
Breakfast was ok, could do with some improvement but they don't limit how much you order - I am biased to prefer a buffet style breakfast.
Pool is nice, although in the shade, however we were able to use the facilities at the sister resort and spa down the road which has a lovely outdoor pool and private beach!

"Amazing place"
Shasha W [TA], ,

“Lovely small hotel with amazing service and the friendliest of staff”

Having travelled round Sri Lanka many times we selected this hotel between Unawatana and Galle for a quiet, relaxing break - and that's exactly what we got. I cannot emphasise just how friendly and helpful the staff.
The hotel is situated directly on a root of mountain with a small jungle .
The location is perfect - easy distance for the Galle Fort and the beautiful Jungle Beach which we highly recommend to any traveler to the area...but make sure you go to the "White Jungle Beach".
The food is good, especially the breakfast. The hotel Management Staff was very flexible
We would highly recommend this hotel and will return again one day

Would love to return
ceceliain... [TA], , Washington DC

This was place was a perfect retreat, set away from the beach but a few minutes walk, amongst the trees. There's a beautiful pool but I didn't feel comfortable lounging long there because it's centrally located in the hotel and there are staff milling about all the time and I felt like a curiosity. Otherwise the staff is very attentive and helpful. The room was beautiful, spacious and in excellent condition. There were only two dark spots on my stay here. I had already paid 50% of my bill prior to arrival and after a hot 6 hour journey they insisted I settle my bill before I could have the room keys to freshen up. I was told it was hotel policy to pay the full bill upon arrival. This seems inconsiderate of travel weary guests and places the focus on money versus our comfort. Then the restaurant tried to charge me double the price of a bottle of water when I drank one glass from the bottle which was absurd because they provide free bottles to the room and breakfast was supposed to be included in my stay. Again, I was aware of their concern with money.

Room Tip: #17 was not on the mountain so fewer guests, above the kitchen but not too noisy and a beautiful roo...

Peaceful great staff.
glenn h [TA], ,

What a wonderful place peaceful and very relaxing. Close to the beach. Great staff always willing to assist very respectful. What a great breakfast very nicely served. Beautiful garden setting very relaxing pool.

Oasis
Louise W [TA], , London, England, United Kingdom

After a hectic week of travelling around the rest of Sri Lanka we stayed here for the last 5 nights of our holiday. Beautiful setting - just of the main Unawatuna road where there is an abundance of beach bars and restaurants etc. Our room was tucked at the back of the hotel and was huge with lovely bathroom/wet room. The breakfast was great with a good selection despite the friendly but pushy staff - they asked you if you were finished the minute you finished your mouthful! They are clearly trying to go above & beyond to be helpful but I think most guests would rather be left to eat/drink in peace! They did always offer us dinner at the hotel but we didn't find it hard to say no thank you, they didn't try and force you into it.

The hotel itself was very clean and there are always plenty of staff around willing to help you in any way. It's worth noting that the hotel is twinned with the nearby Thaproban Pavilion Resort and Spa which has its only mini beach and lovely pool overlooking the sea. We showed our room key & spent the day there.

Overall a really lovely hotel, wish I could head back there now!

Lovely hotel but intimidating staff
BigAl1_8 [TA], , Newcastle

The hotel was lovely, big rooms, set in trees, monkeys visiting each day to eat the mangoes. Lovely cold pool to chill in. Close to the beach, 5 min by Tuk Tuk into Galle.
the only downside was the intimidation by the staff about eating at the hotel. They would line up at the entrance before lunch and dinner, and quiz you why you were not staying to eat at the hotel. It was quite unpleasant. On the beach there are numerous restaurants, where you can sit, watch the sun go down, swim, and enjoy a beer or glass of wine. And quite a bit cheaper than Thambapanni. The staff really needs to back off.

Room Tip: The ones near the pool are more noisy. Roosters start early, so earplugs are helpful
