The Villa Hotel is located in Unawatuna close to Galle. One time Unawatuna was one of the best beaches in the world until Tsunami came and spoilt it. However it is still a nice place to stay and The Villa make it possible. Good seafood with a seafood market at The Villa beach where you can pick fresh fish, prawns...

The room is decent but pillows are not the greatest plus the room stays damp all the time.... The restaurant has great seafood and pizza. The pork chops are very bad and their juices are not good but many places to go all around the place.

Good location on the beach and quiet hotel with only 6 rooms, but our room was very dirty and full of mosquitos (~30) when we arrived. We had to return two bath towels, as they had brown stains all over them, and friends staying in different rooms had the same problem with the towels I asked them to clean the...

Stayed 8 nights instead of 4 Great staff made it feel like home. Postion right on beach was perfect and cost was very reasonable. We were on the top floor with high ceiling and perfect ocean views even from the bed! Would recomend to all especially off season as it is not too busy on the beach.

Somehow I had forgotten to book a hotel for the last night of our trip in Sri Lanka. Well, last night and following day (our plane did not leave until midnight). Luckily, our amazing driver suggested we spend the night in Unawantuna. Unawanatuna had not even been on our radar. It is close to Galle so we could tour the...

The Villa is actually in a great spot right on the beach in Unawatuna. And Unawatuna is probably the most beautiful beach on that coastal stretch of Sri Lanka. The bay is protected and provides a calm still oceanfront perfect for swimming. At the same seasonal time visited the other beaches were a little on the rough side. Unfortunately what...

We stopped by for a sunset dinner after seeing their romantic beach setting. We ordered the seafood platter and an expensive glass of whiskey. Unfortunately from the moment the platter arrived it was a mess. Most of it was inedible. The tuna, prawns and calamari were old the only thing half salvageable was the crab legs and lobster. The only...

The Villa is almost on the beach and is mainly a restaurant with 6 rooms. The room (101) we had was small (they are all the same size) and tired, but clean and had all basic necessities (bed, chairs and a bathroom). We stayed here for 6 nights. The staff is absolutely the key to this hotel, as they're all...

This is a small hotel located right on beach. Stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed the stay. There aren't many rooms here but they offer most things you need. Rooms had a bit of a musty smell but not to bad, beds were comfy and bathroom was fine. Breakfasts were quite nice and other meals served out of the restaurant...

We stayed at The Villa for two nights. With only six rooms spread over three floors, the place feels very cosy and the staff have plenty of time to take care of you. The large four-poster bed with mosquito net was very romantic. Bathroom was basic but worked. We were offered beach towels when we wanted to go swimming at...
