Luxury Rooms on the beach”

Pool; Clean Rooms; Location in Unawatuna

The Calamander Unawatuna Beach was a very beautiful hotel. Unfortunately, it rained for 2 of our 3 days, but we were able to enjoy the pool and have a suntan on the 3rd day of our stay. The location is easy to access all of the shops and restaurants that Unawatuna Beach has to offer. The beachfront is not sand, rather it is built up with giant rocks, likely to prevent further erosion. This is not the hotel's fault, mind you, as much of the north/north-eastern stretch of the beach has this same plight, but they may have to consider this regarding room prices. Without sand and easy access to swimming, it loses some of it's ideal beachfront status. Other than that, my wife and I were both extremely happy with our time at Calamander!

An appropriately priced hotel in Sri Lanka!”

Clean, good staff, right price

The stay here was good. It was the second time I have stayed here and both times I was pleased. First of all, it is one of the few hotels in Sri Lanka that is appropriately priced. Most hotels in Sri Lanka are too much for the quality you receive, but the Calamander is actually a good price for the level of quality. Second, the staff is pretty good. Again, at most hotels in Sri Lanka, the service is well intended but just not up to par. At the Calamander, the staff is well trained and on the ball. Finally, the rooms are fresh, clean and well furnished. Unawatuna is a nice place to be as well. Overall, I recommend it

Great place on a good beach”

We love beaches where there are nice little beach-shack restaurants/bars and this place has them in abundance, so with the really good rooms, service and facilities of Calamander Unawatuna Beach hotel, you have the best of both worlds. Really good buffet breakfast, lovely big pool, free wifi, free use of paddleboards, Kayaks and a free dive lesson. My fav was the morning yoga classes from 'Lucky' - starts the day off just right. We'll definitely go back to this hotel. One of the local tuk-tuk drivers we used - Siri - has a travel place/shop on the main road just before the hotel's turning, he was fantastic. Seek him out - and stay here!
