Me and my wife spent 8 wonderful nights at Palm Grove, Unawatuna. The guest house is in a relatively quiet street surrounded by palm trees and lush vegetation - inhabited by various birds, squirrels and monkeys. The room was clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed at an unbeatable price, there are two terraces where you can enjoy breakfast or relax with a cold beer after a day on the beach. It's a five minute walk to the lovely Unawatuna beach packed with sun beds and small cozy restaurants.
Paul and Lorraine are by far the best hosts we encountered on Sri Lanka, they tried their best to make us feel comfortable. Advising us on restaurants, places to go and visit or just having a drink with us and chatting. It might sound corny, but it really felt like a home away from home.
If we come back to the island we will definitely stay at palm Grove.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Palm Grove is located in an idyllic village setting. Very quiet setting. Away from the nightlife but still within walking distance to all locations. Only a 10 minute stroll to the shops,bars,restaurants and the beautiful bay of Unawatuna. There are many tours that you can take from Unawatuna to suit all tastes. The turtle hatchery is less than 20 minutes away, as is Koggala Lake where you can take a relaxing boat trip on the Lagoon and visit some of the small islands situated there. A three to four day tour will take you to Ella with its waterfalls, Nuwara Eliya with its tea plantations and greenery. The 'Temple of the Tooth' at Kandy and the nearby 'Elephant Orphanage' are also well worth a visit. ... more less
