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.

Faultless
DHodge785 [TA], , Bournemouth, United Kingdom

I am currently ober chilled by the pool on a comfy lounger at thambapanni retreat making the most of the free WiFi whilst my new husband (honeymoon couple) is on a scuba dive. I have a fresh orange juice in hand and am awaiting my salad. This place is amazing!! We are staying in no 2 - one of 2 villas. It is a large villa with a large bathroom and a private outside area with 2 comfy loungers. The whole hotel is so clean and our room is spotless and is cleaned daily. The breakfast is nice, fresh juice or mixed fruit platter followed by eggs cooked your preferred way with bacon or sausage, loads of toast and jam and tea or coffee, we have green tea. There are plenty of restaurants close by along the beach which is a short walk away. I 100% recommend you to stay here! My salad has arrived now so I'll leave it there.

Peace and quiet but surprisingly central
LM B [TA], ,

This resort is totally beautiful! The rooms are huge and have tropical outdoor style bathrooms (private of course). We arrived incredibly late (2.30am) due to flight delays but the staff were amazing and showed us to our room. Delicious breakfast included.
The location is less than 5 minute walk to the beach but you wouldnt know as the resort is so peaceful.
Very family friendly!

Wonderful stay over the New Year
beteCarac... [TA], , caracas

Really pretty boutique hotel tucked away behind the main Unawatuna road. Recently refurbished. Friendly and helpful staff. Child friendly. We managed to get a ground floor room last minute over new year, which was close to the pool but had no private outside area. They provided an extra bed for the kids. Lovely little pool and great food, both international and local at good prices. Would definitely stay here again if returning to Unawatuna.

Room Tip: Rooms up higher are a little more private.

Peace and quiet, yet close to everything!
vbergh [TA], , Stockholm, Sweden

We got a lovely large corner room with a balcony overlooking the pool and the green surroundings. In many cities this room would have been considered a one bedroom flat! The only negative is that the wall to the next door room was rather thin so if you want complete silence, another room might be better.

The staff, including the manager, was excellent and very helpful. The kitchen offered great food at reasonable prices and had specials on almost every night we were there.

We didn’t try their massages but we used the pool everyday when coming back from the beach or excursions. Being located a few minutes walk from the beach, bars and restaurants, it was great to be able to use the sunbeds including towels for free at the sister hotel Thaproban.

If you need transport to the airport or continuation of your trip, I would recommend to use the hotel’s service rather than some of the touts on the streets (incl tuk tuk drivers offering car services) to ensure you get decent car and driver.

Overall, a great place to stay and being tucked away from the beach and streets it is a very peaceful, relaxing and comfortable place to stay!

Perfect boutique retreat, minutes away from a great beach-scene
Dinotrav [TA], ,

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in room nr 9 at Thambapanni. The unique design of the environment - in particular the pool, towers, outdoor shower in room - made the stay very memorable. Thanks for the excellent service, where staff went above and beyond - even after we had checked out (we were kindly offered bag storage and use of showers after a post-check-out beach swim. They even ironed our clothes for the evening travel to Colombo and 31st night!).

I can wholeheartedly recommend thambapanni as a retreat into a comfortable world of designer boutique comforts.
