This is a small, 4 rooms, charming hotel. Ask for room 1 or 2 on the top floor for the view. The personnel is exceptional, courteous, friendly, smiling. The food is excellent (less than 8E/ main dish), Duminda the chef/owner even prepared lobster and crepes Suzette! for our anniversary, the beach chairs, umbrella and towels are all included, the beach...

A gorgeous restaurant by the edge of the bay with warm and friendly staff, the ambiance is relaxing and quite romantic if you happen upon it in the late evening. The food is excellent with an array of house specials and even a kids menu. Portions are just right maybe even a little too much and very tasty. I had...

My partner and I stayed here in August for a week and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, spacious and cool with an ensuite (through quirky saloon style doors!) The staff were very friendly and happy to help if we needed anything at all (including organising our whale watching morning). Would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone...

We spent 5 days here in the well equipped and stylish room. There is a great beach view from the balcony. We found it a great place to relax, swim, walk and explore after 8 weeks of traveling. The staff are wonderful, happy, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. A lovely place to dine sitting at tables on the...

Great location on the western side of Unawatuna beach, which i think is the best beach in Sri Lanka. Great for sunbathing, eating/drinking/ watersports etc. and very clean. The rooms are very simple but just perfect for this style of hotel and a laid back beach holiday. Beds are comfy and big. Bathrooms are big with good shower (but no...

We stayed here a couple of nights in April of 2015 and it was a great experience. I thought everything was well planned - the rooms were lovely and appropriately furnished for a beach hotel. The staff were very kind and courteous. We had a wonderful time! Will stay here again.

Stayed here in April for 5 nights before getting married & Duminda & his team were always on hand to help us with everything we needed! The Kingfisher has 4 good quality, brushed concrete finished rooms all facing the sea (although only 1 has a really unblocked sea view). Comfortable beds, AC & hot water as you would expect for...

I have visited Kingfisher many times (more than 5) and it is one the best locations at Unawatuna. There are 4 rooms and the top floor rooms are having a magnificent view. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Considering the prices relative to the other properties in Unawatuna, this is pricy. They have a good menu, but don't expect...

Kingfisher Hotel was just right! Perfect location on a lovely beach. The food was lovely and the beer cold! The staff were very friendly and attentive. We booked all Four double rooms for our family holiday and what a great time we all had. Would totally recommend.

Stayed here for our last night in Sri Lanka and it is the one place I wouldn't return. Room and view is lovely but for $120 it didn't even include breakfast which I thought was pretty poor. They also charge you extra to use the beach beds even though you are staying in the hotel (and with only 4 rooms...
