6 of us were here for a weeks diving and picked what we felt was the best hotel on the beach and having now been there for a week, we were right.

Head and shoulders above anything else (apart from the Pavilion and Retreat all part of the same group but not on the beach)

We had the 2 penthouses and a 1st floor ocean view room, the Penthouses are worth the extra as they have fantastic views and are above the hub bub of the restaurant on the beach. Not that we were disturbed that much on the 1 st floor, the ground floor rooms literally open in to the bar.

The fact that the restaurant was full every night, when nothing else was highlighted that it was clearly the best place on the beach to eat, We were here for a week and had most things all of which were freshly sourced and prepared.

If you want a good hotel and are willing to pay for it in Unawatuna this is the place.

There are limited sun beds and this is a bit of an issue and the towel situation is we understand about to improve, other wise do what we did and raid the store room on the 1st floor and hoard them !

Room Tip: Penthouse or Ocean View, Benefit from a balcony and the breeze

This was our first destination of the trip and we are super glad to say that our stay couldn't have been any better than it was here at Thaproban beach house. The rooms are very spacious and cozy with right amount of amenities. The beach front location of the hotel makes it a best place to relax and unwind yourself.
The food is excellent and the hotel staff is super friendly and cooperative.
We would highly recommend this place for beach and food lovers.

I had the great pleasure of staying here for my birthday and it was a fantastic experience. The hotel is really well located with lovely rooms and beach restaurant. The hotel staff were amazing and really went above & beyond to make sure I had a great stay. They specially decorated my room and then my table in the evening and everyone wished me a happy birthday. I really felt special and had the best hotel birthday ever.

The hotel staff were also incredibly accommodating with my dietary requirements too. Being gluten free can be a huge pain when traveling but at the Thaproban Beach House they always made sure what I ordered was gluten free and if not then they made me the dish just for me without gluten - for example on my birthday they made me a gluten free curry. All the food was fantastic including breakfast - some of the best omelette's I have had.

Finally what I loved about this hotel was how they looked after a local little stray dog called Joannie. She was adorable and it really made my holiday to have this little darling greet me every morning when I came to the beach and it was lovely to see how well cared for she was.

It is not the most luxurious hotel I have stayed in but it was beautiful, clean and nicely set up, and with the best hotel staff and management, my experience here was far better than in some more expensive hotels I have stayed in. I am already looking to book my next trip back and I would certainly rank this hotel as one of my all time favourites.

Would highly recommend this hotel.

I spent the week here as my friend was booked into the hotel, and this was part of the chain of hotels I was staying in.

Firstly the staff were amazing.
They made a huge effort to help celebrate my friends birthday. They would always provide a lift back to the other hotel so didn't have to walk back at night in the dark. They were really friendly and focused on providing great customer service.

The wifi on the beach was free and strong enough to actually use.

The food was really great and usually the most popular place on the beach due to the high standards of food. They were able to provide gluten free options too.

Rooms were nice and clean and bathrooms fitted to high standard.

Would definitely return.
