Our room had such an amazing view, it was really gorgeous! Looks straight out on the sea, and a lovely balcony to enjoy this too (however it's open balcony shared with the room next door). The room was very modern and spacious and the bathroom was really big with a good shower. I've reviewed it as average because it's above... More

Whilst I agree kingfisher is number 1 for dinner in Una, the Lucky Tuna is still definitely worth a visit. The seafood BBQ is what most people go for and it did not disappoint. The jumbo prawns were seriously delicious and the BBQ tuna was stood too (although a little overcooked). Really reasonable prices and good serving sizes. Would go... More

The rooms are quite expensive (we paid around £50 per night as we booked 4 nights, that's around 10,000 rupees per night), but it was beautiful. Amazing shower, very large room, and balcony overlooking the bright blue sea. Wake up, have a swim, relax on a lounger, have a fresh lime juice, tan up. God I wish I was back... More

This place is right on the beach just above a restaurant. So when we were taken there we thought it would be an absolute dump! How wrong we were! The room we had was stunning! Flat screen TV, big double bed, amazing balcony to look over the stunning beach, and an amazing bathroom! Couldn't ask for more! We had one... More

However it is NOT a boutique hotel. that is quite a bit of an overstatement. Its just 4 rooms above the bar and restaurant! IT is however clean. Hot water... More

After a nice swim, this place provided a good respite from the sun (while still being on the beach) and an amazing lunch. The grilled calamari and the prawn curry are both excellent! Service may be a little slow. It is a beach-shack after all.

Lucky tuna 'boutique hotel' says the sign hanging out front. This is not a hotel, but 4 rooms above a bar/restaurant. Set right on the beach, the rooms are spacious, with a beautiful view & nice bathroom with fancy jet shower. However, the shower is freezing cold, the towels and bedding are dirty, mismatched and ragged (with mould, stains and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with 3 of my friends that came down from Dubai. The location is absolutely amazing and the rooms have balconies that face the Sea. Perfect!

“The 4 rooms are all up a quite steep and narrow winding staircase so children might find it a bit of a challenge! Also the sea can be rough with a very sudden shelf on the beach- watch over the little ones!”
