This place is twice as expensive as every other hotels or guesthouses we stayed in in Sri Lanka. But it shows. The room is beautiful. Very spacious with a high ceiling and huge windows with seaview. Equiped with closet, bureau and couch, an excellent king size bed, airco, big bathroom and a nice balcony. Couldn’t be better. (Except for maybe... More

Walk on the Galle Matara road and this restaurant is about a 20 mins walk from the Unawatuna Beach. There's small board, blink and you miss it. Walk in to cross through a small courtyard and you are on the beach. The resturant is small and some easychairs facing the beach are perfect for a crink while looking at the... More

Order some lunch and take a dip in the sea while you wait for it to be prepared. The beach is sheltered by a reef so it is very calm, but there is a strong current in the gap between the two rocks directly in front of the stairs leading to the restaurant so watch out for that.

The hotel was nice and clean and located on beautiful beach where swimming was possible. Food was good (recommendation to order the Sri Lanka breakfast!!). Overall only 3 points due to quite high price level and the high noise level of the nearby street and construction works.

Came for dinner with my family. Had the seared tuna steak and the grilled prawns which were fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. The mojito is excellent too.

Wijaya is one of my favourite palces, offers great food and beverages. The location of the restaurant is very fine. Has a great beach to walk on the season and off season when you sit on the front sun beds in the restaurant you feel like you are floating on the ocean. A must try.

I don't really want people to find this place and the beach as I'm selfish - however, visited the bar/restaurant twice (only having discovered it 3 days before we left). Firstly - food was beautiful first day I had giant prawns and on the second visit a seafood pizza. I saw the chef making the dough beside the pizza oven... More

You have to have a meal here, their pizzas are simply amazing (go for the seafood, it is guaranteed fresh and juicy!) also those passion-fruit mojitos..

We explored a lot of restaurant in Unawatuna, but this is defintely the best, when it comes to atmosphere and food quality (even before the lovely Flower Garden Hotel). We went for a birthday dinner and it was fantastic - we had grilled sea food and mango curry. Top quality, a great evening"

Amazing wood over pizzas (feta, bacon and avocado is a winner!) The seafood is top notch as are the fresh fruit dacquiris!
