We stayed at Dunes for 3 nights in total. The hotel is close to the sea, surrounded by a lot of good restaurants. Although it’s in the city center, it’s still a quiet place to have some rest. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was beautiful, and great for relaxing. Thanks for the good time and say hi to your dog Simba for us 🤩.

Really just an amazing place, 100% as shown in the photos and the other positive reviews (even better honestly). The garden is beaut and huge even though it is close to the beach, the owner and staff are amazing, the rooms incredible with such a personal touch and attention to detail and on top of that rooms, breakfast, transfers etc were also proved very generously priced and affordable. There should be more places like this in the world to stay at, please don’t change a anything and all the best of luck and success for the future to Gayan and his team!!

We stayed here for 5 nights 😍the rooms were cleaned everyday with clean towels daily. We stayed in the cottage at the end of the garden and loved the outside shower/ bathroom . We saw monkeys , peacocks, water monitor lizards ,chipmunks and different birds. All this is just off of the beach road.

The best place we stayed at during our whole trip in Sri Lanka. A very hospitable and pleasant host, always ready to help. The atmosphere is great, beautiful area with animals which never disturb you, but you can see them write from the terrace of your room. The room is very nice, clean and the style is awesome. Highly recommend this place!

I stayed at Dunes for 4 nights, and it was simply amazing. The rooms are well equipped and clean. The staff is friendly and always available when needed. The breakfast was so yummy and is worth much more than the price they charge. The hotel grounds are so so beautiful and so well maintained. Definitely once of the best places to stay in Unawatuna.
