Found the Dunes by chance ,and although at first we thought it was more expensive than what we had paid throughout Sri Lanka, it was well worth it and in retrospect the hotel was 4 star standard , with all amenities for a relaxing stay amongst nature. It was the best value accommodation that we stayed in during our month in Sri Lanka. So much wildlife within the hotel area, short walk to the beach, no noise from the busy Unawatuna road , so clean and exceptional staff and management. Perfect. Thank you.

I booked in here for 3 nights, but ended up staying 6. It is a beautiful tranquil oasis, only a few minutes walk from the beach or the busy main road, but it feels like being in a nature reserve. I spent hours in the gardens or on my balcony enjoying watching the birds, and other assorted wildlife. The monkey providing hours of entertainment! I would strongly recommend having breakfast - it was amazing, so much choice and so tasty. I had something different every day. The room was comfortable , spotless and cleaned every day. The owner was friendly and helpful and the staff were all lovely. A special mention for the manager, Dhanushka, who is a real credit to the place. So helpful, polite and interesting to talk to. One of the loveliest places I’ve ever stayed, I would choose it over a high end luxury hotel any day

We stayed three nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms were modern, clean and with love to detail. The staff is really helpful and gives space. We really felt welcome. The hotel is located in the centre of Unawatuna, but you are in nature and wont notice the cloesby town. The owner helped us organizing trips like surfing. If we come back to Sri Lanka we will stay here again for sure! We loved it, thanks a lot.

Our stay at the Dunes hotel was awesome. The staff is really friendly and helpful, rooms were extremely clean and spacious and the garden is an oasis in the middle of Unawatuna. A 5 min walk to the beach. Lots of book to read available in the hotel. Amazing
