Thaproban beach house is hands down the best hotel down Unawatuna beach. Special thanks to the resident manager Mr Viraja Silva for the spectacular service from the check in - check out and everything else. Attention to detail in customer service by Thilina from F&B and the rest! Also to mention, mount watering seafood by the head chef and the team. Wishing the whole team all the very best and great success!

Me & wife visited unawatuna for few days to attend a wedding. After the few hectic days in the Capital, we wanted to get some peace and quiet with safety on this COVID situation. So we were shown all the room types since we didn't have any idea which room to stay in. I must say that all rooms were very nice with all modern facilities. There were LCD Tv's in each room and most of the rooms had sea view balcony. We finally chose to stay in a Penthouse suite which was very nice and spacious. The suite had two floors & a King size four poster bed. The staff and service were excellent and food was great. The restaurant was really nice. We were shown fresh sea food and it was prepared for dinner. I can recommend Thaproban to anyone who loves the beach, sea view and great food with comfort.

We stayed at the suggestion of a friend. The hotel is not large but it is well suited. The breakfasts were large and had tons of fresh fruit to offer. The restaurant has multiple options to suit many tastes. I would loved to have seen the hotel take a bit more effort to insulate and make the rooms more energy efficient. The hotels is well suited in the street it is on as you can walk along the street or along the beach to get to it. The hotel was able to book all of our excursions though our guides did not all speak very fluent English. We enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms with a beach view so it is worth asking if that is important.

This is a lovely small Hotel right on the beach. All of the staff are friendly and helpful and this all stems from Deva who manages everything with a smile. Preantha who waited table on the beach was brilliant - always happy to find us some shade or a bit of sun and kept us well fed and watered. We struggled with his name on the first day, so just called him 'Perfect !' - mainly becuase he had the knack of knowing exactly when to leave you alone, or indeed when you wanted something. On our first day Deva announced 'we have the best Tuna in the area' - after dinner that night we were convinced he was right ! You know those occasions when you talk about 'the best steak you ever had' or 'the best pasta dish in italy' ..... well this is the best Tuna steak we have ever tasted anywhere in the world and it will live long in our memory ! ..... and what a perfect setting; sitting at a table on the beach, near the sea and by candlelight. We were here for 3 nights and would have happily stayed longer - maybe next time !

Dear Martin and Sue C It is our great pleasure to have brought a smile to your face and happiness to your spirit. As you mentioned beach side waiter Priyantha will be commended for his thoughtfulness. This is the kind of spirit that we like to see in our staff. Hope you come again and try out other Tuna recipes apart from the brilliant steak you enjoyed!
