From the moment we arrived feeling exhausted from our long journey Thambapannis nurturing staff made us feel instantly calm and at home.
The location is beautiful and the rooms and gardens are maintained to a high standard by hard working staff who go about there work quietly with grace and efficiency.
The gardener is amazing and has such knowledge if anyone likes to take time to talk to him.
The restaurant I can say boasts talentd chefs and I personally think we enjoyed nicer evening meals there than anywhere else along the beach.As for the waiters they were charming and couldn't do enough for us .
I thoroughly recommend Ranjan for his massage treatments , he really is on top of his game .
Finally on the whole just BLISSFUL in every way . THANK YOU

Kingfisher Hotel was just right! Perfect location on a lovely beach. The food was lovely and the beer cold! The staff were very friendly and attentive. We booked all Four double rooms for our family holiday and what a great time we all had. Would totally recommend.

Room Tip: Although the rooms on 1st and 2nd floor to the left as you look out on to the beach have slightly be...

Nature Villes a great place to stay in Unawatuna, Its right in the centre of unawatuna. Perfect location to go to the beach but you are also not right in front of the beach so its very quite and peaceful. The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the manager..Artjom. He will give you all the information and help you need at anytime. The rooms are very nice and very comfortable. Defiantly recommend and worth the money.

The room had a good air conditioner which you need in Unawatuna in April, it was sweltering.
Clean rooms which are made up everyday for you.
Staff was very helpful, friendly and attentive. The reception staff (Nuwani) went out of her way to help me get a document printed (thanks Nuwani!).
Nice breakfast.
lush bush surrounds with bird nests etc.
good value spa to have a full body Ayurvedic massage.

The pool is nice and in the shade however they need to renovate, fix up the broken tiles that are super sharp which cut my sun (which has left a gash, and possibly a big scar)
Poor Wifi connection, no connection in the room (in the tower on the other side of the reception) for the last 3 days we stayed, the wifi near reception/pool area was also in and out ( a bit frustrating if you are like me who needs internet to relax)

Our family had the most incredible trip to Sri Lanka recently and stayed at a number of hotels all over the island- Thambapani was the best hotel by far! It was the perfect location with beautiful sandy beaches very near to the hotel. It had gorgeous rooms, delicious food and even a pool!
What made the trip for us though was the hotels warm and friendly staff.
Nuwani in particular was absolutely lovely and showed a real interest in our holiday. She was able to advise us on the best places to visit and went the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect and memorable. We would come back as a family to visit her and the staff at the hotel a they had a family approach which made us feel at home. Thank you to Nuwani and the staff at Thambapani!!

I have visited Kingfisher many times (more than 5) and it is one the best locations at Unawatuna.

There are 4 rooms and the top floor rooms are having a magnificent view. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Considering the prices relative to the other properties in Unawatuna, this is pricy.

They have a good menu, but don't expect anything local.

The staff is well trained and well mannered.

I will continue to visit Kingfisher in the future.

I found Peacock Ayurveda Garden after extensive research on the Internet to find the ideal Ayurveda and panchkarma resort. I was not disappointed. In fact I am delighted to have chosen this place for a 15-days treatment for my wife and me. From the time I contacted Asta, the co-owner, the booking and the other administrative matters were handled most efficiently but her. The place is a gem. Tucked in lush jungle nestled in hills, the beautiful and landscaped little resort exudes an ambience of peace, quiet and nature at its most serene. The 8-bedroom facility, has a little dining room, kitchen, sitting area, verandas, and of course the swimming pool with the iconic mango tree, beside it. The tree was laden with mangoes kissing the lush green lawns. There are also a few treatment rooms, a cabana and a shed for yoga around the house. The rooms are spacious, airy and very clean. Although lack of air conditioning was a little daunting in the first two days of our stay, we soon started liking the heat and humidity. We later realized that the heat was necessary to help rid the body of toxins. The doctors, the therapists, the kitchen staff and the other support staff are the most competent, courteous, cheerful and helpful persons I have ever come across in any one place. It was impossible to fault anyone for anything whatsoever. In fact everyone literally went out of their way to meet our needs, requirements and wishes to the best of their ability. Both my wife and I are most satisfied with our stay at Peacock Garden and feel much healthier and happier. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

I stayed in this hotel for 4 days and I liked it. Rooms are clean, with cold and warm water. The only problem if you stay it the last floor it can be a little bit noise because of monkeys on the trees. The staff are very friendly and attentive . The restaurant in the hotel is also good. The hotel is 5-10 minutes away from the beach. The wifi connection is poor in the last floor

We stayed several times in this hotel ,which we appreciate very much, for its location, friendly staff and good catering. All the staff members satisfied our wishes ,when we requested special dishes. We recommand in particular Indu, a very friendly guy, always keen of satisfying his clients. Nuwani was always there to give us good advises when we needed. Thanks to everybody !

We stayed 4 nights with our children at Thaproban Beach House. The beautiful hotel is located right on the beach. The staff is very, very friendly and helpfull. The seafood market in the evening is excellent. We specially say many thanks to our waiter Indu´nil. We would definitely recommand Thaproban Beach House.

We had a great four night stay towards the end of the season.

The staff were all fantastic - great personalities and great service (particularly when my camera broke and they gave us a bag of rice to salvage it, and when I got attacked by caterpillars on a sunbed on another part of the beach!)

The rooms are spacious, clean and the beds are very comfortable. It is also great being so close to the beach.

Would recommend a stay at the thaproban beach house to anyone travelling to unawatuna.

The first thing i cant forget about my experience in this hotel is the great service we received from the hotel staff.. very helpful, smiley and proactive. especially the lady is the reception Miss Nuwani. she was very helpful in changing our room to a better one next to the pool..she also proposed to us a full 5 days schedule/road trip with a driver that covers most of Srilanka "must visit" places.
we did the trip. and it was amazing. we were able to see most of Srilanka great places and the driver was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Other than that, the hotel is beautiful, clean, with pool, restaurant (food is good) and is walking distance from the beach.
definitely we will come back
