Sun n Sea is situated in a unique location on Unawatuna Bay. Proudly perched atop an outcrop of rocks Sun N Sea overlooks the bay with a wide sandy beach beneath it. The experience of a “Sun N Sea” sunset is breathtaking and never ceases to amaze anyone who has been privileged to witness it. The restaurant is perfectly positioned to ensure the most amazing views across the bay from dawn through to dawn. Sun N Sea has a total of ten rooms all of which were refurbished and upgraded in 2010.

The large four Ground Floor rooms are entered to via a veranda adjacent to the garden overlooking the sea. They are furnished with king size double beds with mosquito nets, ceiling fans, air conditioning. The spacious bathrooms are fitted with modern fittings and hot water showers.

The smaller upper floor rooms are entered via a balcony that allows the guests to enjoy a breathtaking view at any time of the day. The double and twin bedded rooms are furnished with mosquito nets, fans, air conditioning. The bathrooms are of standard size but with the same facilities as the ground floor rooms

The spacious Suite/ Family room is furnished with a four poster double bed, with provision to accommodate up to four adults. The facilities are the same as all the other rooms but it also has a private balcony overlooking the sea.

The location of the restaurant, with a panoramic view of the bay together with the sound of the waves breaking gently, and the breathtaking sunsets, makes our restaurant popular with guests at any time of the day, be it breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a cup of tea.

Serving rice and curry alongside international dishes, we pride ourselves in the quality and freshness of our meals. All our meals are cooked to order and we strive to accommodate any special dietary requirements our guests may have.

Our rice and curry is very popular with our guests and unsurprisingly so are the Jumbo Prawns and Lobster. The food has been cited in popular travel guides as ‘the best in the bay’. One in particular mentioned our Rice & Curry as the best in the area.

An unexpected Singalese New Year-celebration
Inge M [TA], ,

I spend the evening here during Singalese New Year. The kitchen was unfortunately closed the time we arrived, but according to the Singalese tradition they offered us free New Year-food. It was very delicious: the milkrice, kalu dodol (it's like a pudding made of riceflour), kokki's. We left the place full and satisfied. The place itself is pretty: white spacious architecture with a lot of food and a sunterrace with a great seaview.

Best mixed fruit juice in town
KurtSchwe... [TA], , Zurich, Switzerland

Mostly everyday we had our lunch in this fantastic situated Restaurant with best beach and sea view! The Food was very tasty and the mixed fruit juice a dream, but don't eat the wooden fired Pizza, they need a lot of improvement....

Hit a poor one this time
John B [TA], , Bristol, United Kingdom

Thought it would make a change to stay on the coast but bog mistake!! The whole area is poor, a bit like Blackpool or Torquay in the UK, nowhere would have been good to stay. Although pretty clean it was decidedly downmarket and limited facilities. Limited towels provided, poor quality furniture and fittings, a D-I-Y feeling about it and noisy - Sea too close, no double glazing, road too close, staff too noisy, guests too noisy. To make it worse we came across some stunning boutique guest houses and hotels in Galle the next day which is right next door to Unawatuna! Wasn't cheap either.

Nice place for a Family Outing
Chryshan... [TA], , Colombo, Sri Lanka

The whole family really enjoyed the stay. It is right by the Ocean, which is about 10 meters away. The beach is full of seashells, which the kids really enjoyed collecting. We stayed in a room on the ground floor, which was very spacious, and the bed was very comfy.

Relaxing hotel away from the busy Unawatuna 'strip'
aecscott [TA], , London, United Kingdom

We had a very peaceful and relaxing time during our two night stay here. The hotel is beautifully done with clean, basic rooms with your own seating area on the balcony (we had a room on the 1st floor). The beach has changed drastically in the last 6 months as sand has been added to increase the size of the beach meaning the hotel doesn't sit 'in' the water as seen in photos, but rather it is on the beach. This was great for us as it meant you could lie on the beach and swim without being near loads of people. We felt like we were on our own private beach! The staff were very friendly and made us feel very at home. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Excellent hotel in Unawatuna
Kira K [TA], , Brussels, Belgium

We had a great time at Sun'n'Sea - our base for the Unawatuna part of our Sri Lankan holiday. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the on-site restaurant had great food, amazing views and a very nice chilled atmosphere - just what we needed after day-long beach and sea adventures (diving with one of the nearby dive centres). Having the beach just at the doorstop is simply amazing and makes for a very relaxing holiday.

Our home away from home
DoesoTrav... [TA], , Stord Municipality, Norway

We came to Sun N Sea after a 4 day roundtrip in Sri Lanka. Have been here several times over the last 15 years and many things have changed, but still the hotel has the same calm feeling. Walking through the reception and seeing and hearing the sea is magical every time. The staff is very service minded and friendly and makes you feel at home the moment you arrive.
This time we were a group of 15 persons (family and friends) and we occupied 7 rooms at the hotel.
ROOMS: The rooms are clean and air-conditioned, have comfortable beds, fan and mosquito nets. There are 2 room categories, downstairs room (big-doubles) and upper floor rooms (smaller doubles). In addition there is one big family room in upper floor.
All the upper floor rooms are accessed from the beautiful wooden balcony which is also a nice place to sit and relax if your skin needs a little rest from the sun...
Rooms are kept clean and new towels provide daily.
LOCATION: The Unawatuna Beach is unfortunately not the same as it was before and this made me personally very sad. Unawatuna beach has been suffering from erosion for years and it was accelerating after a break water at the opposite end of the beach was built. What I would call a "quick fix" was performed by the Coast Conservation in March 2015. They filled up the beach with new sand on the whole of Unawatuna beach. The problem is that it is a different and darker sand and that they also filled up areas that had no sand originally(like in the front of Sun N Sea). For us having been here before this was very disappointing, but for the other members of our group they liked the fact that the beach was now right in front of the rooms and with sun beds and room for beach activities, ball games, racket ball etc.
I hope and believe that nature and the natural sea currents will again bring back the beach to what it was outside Sun N Sea. We already saw proof that this is the case.
FOOD: Since last time we were here Sun N Sea has opened a Grill/Bistro additionally to the excellent kitchen they already have. It is located over the bar and has a wood-fired Pizza oven. We have always loved the food at Sun N Sea, specially the Seafood and curry, but the new Grill/Bistro with pizzas and bruschetta was very welcome by our younger group-members. As a result, for the 10 days we stayed, we only had 2 meals (lunches) outside the hotel.

Beautiful boutique hotel
Zara K [TA], ,

Came here as a big group for a family holiday, and the hotel was just beautiful, peaceful, picturesque, clean and the staff were very helpful and attentive. Breakfast on the veranda overlooking the beach was worth waking up for and the hotel is a bargain for the price. Will definitely be back and have recommended to family and friends

Location, location, location and more location.
Weeked_Br... [TA], , London

The hotel is situated on what feels like its own private stretch of Unawatuna beach. All the rooms front onto the beach with direct access from the outside lounging area onto the beach and their sun loungers. The staff are friendly, there is a very decent on site restaurant and the rooms are large and simply yet very tastefully finished. The only downside is the noise. The hotel is situated on a corner and whilst fronted by direct access to the beach, to the rear is the very busy main road. Also being as close to the beach as it is, there is a bit of noise at might with people staying late (or starting early!) All in all, a fabulously located hotel with excellent amenities that would not be far from perfect with a better quality of sleep.

really comfortable and pleasant stay
MisterPet [TA], , London, United Kingdom

friendly and helpful staff made this stay very chilled and relaxing. Food was lovely and if you wanted anything off menu or done differently they would accommodate. Good location at the end of the beach because the centre can be a bit loud in the evenings. Would stay here again.
