Unawatuna, Sri Lanka
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Off season in Unawatuna so actually managed to bag one of the top floor rooms for the first time in two years . Rooms are spacious and spotless. For a beach side location these simple yet stylish rooms offer you all you need including a big outside area, kingsize comfortable bed, big well laid out bath room, no door though....

We came to the Kingsfisher from a different hotel (which was ok, but not quite what we were looking for). A friend had recommended the restaurant to us so we checked it out and oh, how lovely did we eat. After that dinner we decided to change our hotel for we also liked the location and style of the Kingfisher...

We spent a week at the Kingfisher to chill out after a two week tour of Sri Lanka. We loved the hotel - the room was spacious with a large balcony, the food was wonderful and the management and staff could not do enough for us. We could have gone out to eat as there are several restaurants nearby but...

We stayed here for 7 nights and literally didn't move from the hotel and beach which is a first for us because we usually like to try different restaurants every night. The rooms were spacious, spotless and very comfortable, we liked the subdued lighting and did manage to read using it. The balcony was spacious and had spectacular views x...

Part of my review, I suppose, is biased by the beach - Una is not a gorgeous beach. As other people have commented, a lot of the sand is eaten away or just completely encroached upon by shacks and restuarants and other eyesores. It's still attractive, just not pristine paradise. The Kingfisher is lovely and modern in terms of décor,...

I discovered Kingfisher restaurant on Unawatuna Beach when some expat friends took me there for dinner, boasting (as locals often do) that it served “the best food on the bay”. They were not wrong. The freshly caught line fish was cooked to perfection and fell off the bone, local dishes were authentic and not overly spiced, there was a perfectly...

A four room guest house that has a fantastic restaurant and beach bar. It is situated at the west end of the bay which has the most sand to relax on. The rooms are new, solid and equipped with a TV, fridge, fan, air con, power shower and large sea facing balcony. Possibly the best place to stay in Unawatuna....

Lovely clean room. Very spacious. Although quite noisy at night. We also ate at the restaurant which was great, you have to book though. Very helpful & friendly staff. Would recommend the butterfish. The only downside to this place is all the beach hawkers which are constant. Not the best beach we've been too in Sri Lanka & the hassle...

We'd heard a mixed bag of reviews regarding Kingfisher about slow staff etc., but I have to say, that wasn't our experience at all! As soon as we arrived we were made to feel welcome, despite there being not many seats available. The hotel itself - the lobby anyway - is really pretty and opens right out on to the...

Definitely a lovely hotel, with very friendly staff, room almost perfect, it would be if there was sufficient lighting, the light is so low it is impossible to read in bed without a torch. However with the high price they charge a few things need to be improved: - We were left without electricity a few times and for 2...
