One of our best stays in Srilanka. The rooms were clean, nice and comfortable. It's a quaint property situated not so far from Unawatuna Beach. Lorraine was nice and helpful. This stay was value for money and peaceful.

Located off a quiet foot path behind the main 'strip' in Unawatuna, Palm Grove was just what we needed. Our hosts, Lorraine & Paul, were there to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palm Grove is located in an idyllic village setting. Very quiet setting. Away from the nightlife but still within walking distance to all locations. Only a 10 minute stroll to the shops,bars,restaurants and the beautiful bay of Unawatuna. There are many tours that you can take from Unawatuna to suit all tastes. The turtle hatchery is less than 20 minutes away, as is Koggala Lake where you can take a relaxing boat trip on the Lagoon and visit some of the small islands situated there. A three to four day tour will take you to Ella with its waterfalls, Nuwara Eliya with its tea plantations and greenery. The 'Temple of the Tooth' at Kandy and the nearby 'Elephant Orphanage' are also well worth a visit. ... more   less
