Great facilities
Cedric H [TA], , Citta di Castello, Italy

I have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed it. On this visit I slept elsewhere but used several of Thambapanni's facilities. In particular I attended Ranjan's excellent yoga class at 8 each morning and also a series of treatments in his ayurvedic spa, including shirodara and steam baths and massage. He is very professional, knowledgeable and expert and I left for home feeling refreshed and reinvigorated, effects that have lasted many days. I inspected the newly refurbished hotel premises and must say they have done a very good job of the work. I had breakfast after yoga every day, very fresh and good meals, and my one dinner in the restaurant was the best I had in Unawatuna - excellent sear fish.

Lovely setting
SallyH761 [TA], , Norwich, United Kingdom

Lovely hotel, quiet location in a bustling beachside village. Nice room and comfortable bed. Very helpful and friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Restaurant prices a bit high but very good, some good beachside places to eat though.

Charming hotel
Nnifgad [TA], ,

We stayed here for three nights. The place is a charming oasis consisting of several buildings in junglenlike surroundings. We had booked and pre-paid the Tower Suite. When we arrived this was occupied. We were therefore referred to a standard rom in an annex . The room was not good. Dark, no glass, but shutters and black fungus in the shower.
The following day we were moved to tower suite. Then everything changed. Fantastic large room, large luxurious bathroom and a large terrace. We had great fun to feeding the monkeys with bananas from the terrace. But be aware, there are many stairs to go up to the tower suites. These rooms are therefore not suitable for everyone.

Room Tip: If possible, avoid the standard rrooms. Many stairs. Not suitable for mobility impaired.

practically perfect paradise place
neesi [TA], , london

This small spa hotel is situated a 5 minute walk from the lovely Unawatuna beach. Built into the rock and jungle, you really feel you are far from the madding crowd. Its quiet and yet convenient. The staff are so helpful, unintrusive and friendly. There is a small pool, a yoga room and massage treatment. I am not going to great lengths about my stay here, except to say that you will not go wrong if you stay here, and there are 3 tiers of price.but the service is exceptional in all. The rooms are big and housekeeping superb. I'd rather have goodnight spelled out in flowers on my bed than a chocolate anyday.

An oasis location
Terryh41 [TA], , Canterbury, United Kingdom

This hotel is situated at the end of street/road full of other hotels and competing attractions. It is, however, far enough past these to be in what appears an oasis of calm amongst a setting of huge trees where you might well be entertained by the monkeys.
We had a suite that was located high up ( not suitable for the infirm ) that involved 99 steps which ensured that we burnt off some calories from good food on offer. The seafood meal one night was quite superb.
Chat to the chef here and you will be well looked after. A special mention to Chaminda ( Food & Beverage Manager) who ensured we were catered for.

Just Lovely!
Philippa... [TA], , London, United Kingdom

I stayed her with 2 friends for one night and thought it was a lovely oasis of calm in Unawatuna. The room was very nice and the staff were very friendly and accommodating - even when we overslept past breakfast they still fed us! I would have like to have stayed longer here to get more from the onsite spa and treatments available, but it's always good to leave on a high!

Hidden pearl
Martin L [TA], , Stockholm, Sweden

Having not been to Unawatuna before, one would think staying at one of the beach hotels to be the best choice... Nope, having struggled past all of these and the tuk-tuk-busy local street and up a not very impressive alley, we checked in at Thambapanni Retreat situated and actually constructed at the very foot a Hanuman's famous rock. Here, one is not disturbed by the noisier surroundings of the beach although at a short walking distance. In the other direction, Jungle Beach is also at walking distance (15 min stroll) even though locals would like you to go by tuk-tuk to avoid the adventageous jungle with streams, animals and leaches (an exaggeration to say the least).
However, at Thambapanni you will find spacious rooms, a nice little pool, very nice staff, attentive and friendly management. If you're lycky (as were we) you'll stay in the three rooms sharing a huge balcony above the pool area.
Thanks to service, quality of food and the calm atmosphere, we found ourselves dining mostly at Thambapanni even though we aimed at trying out many more restaurants close by.
In short, this is a lovely retreat!

Room Tip: Double rooms with balcony facing the pool area are nice and calm.

Great service and spacious rooms
work2trav... [TA], , Minneapolis, Minnesota

Great location and very friendly staff. The hotel rooms were great, very clean and only a five minute walk to Unawatuna beach where you can use their sister resorts beach chairs. We enjoyed Jungle beach as it was less busy and no sales people. The only thing I would say is if you want a deal with a taxi or tuk tuk, go out to the road and as as we saved $ this way for every trip we took as far as Hatton. Breakfast was ok, your typical eggs, fruit and toast. We did not eat their for dinner. Overall a friendly clean hotel, be aware of the outrageous taxes/service fees you pay ontop of TA prices in Sri Lanka in general.

A lovely retreat in Unawatuna
Lauraslon... [TA], ,

Thambapanni is a lovely place to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of the beach - the pool is great to hang out, the staff are brilliantly attentive and friendly and breakfast is a treat. We stayed in the cheapest room on the ground floor (which was clean and spacious) but the rooms with balconies look amazing if you are happy to splash out a little more. Also only a couple of minutes walk from the beach and restaurants. Highly recommended!!!

Nice spot
Jetsetter... [TA], ,

Great Property but...

Facilities - Staff - Immaculate- Service - Breakfast - Rooms - everything but....

Unawatuna is going through big changes.
There's no noise ordinance laws so neighboring properties can blast music at high levels around the clock, especially weekends.

This unfortunately affects this near perfect "Retreat"

It's location on the hill manages to catch sound from the beach and nearby outdoor bars. No fault of theirs, just an environmental issue not yet monitored by authorities.

Hope they sort it out. This place is really perfect otherwise.
