The hotel is pretty nice and the rooms are large but I found it a bit dated. Perhaps that is the look they are going for but I found the old locks inconvenient and not having a bathroom door was rather annoying. However, the food was great, the view from the balcony was superb and the staff were warm and...

Great location on the beach, the staff there are amazingly good and friendly and will do anything for you. The best restaurant also in the area. The rooms are very clean and modern and everything you need is within, a nice balcony overlooking the restaurant and beach.

Recently visited here for an evening meal. Excellent spot on the beach. The food was excellent, cocktails fantastic. The staff and the service 1st class. My only criticism was the stray dogs that wander about but that was the only problem.

A lovely hotel with great sea view rooms, lovely decor, great staff and delicious food. The hotel is spotless, the staff couldn't be more helpful. The hotel has one of the best locations on the beach. Their cocktails and fresh fruit juices are gorgeous. I would highly recommend and will definitely go back again.

This is a charming hotel right on the beach in Unawatuna. With only four rooms, it is easy to feel like a special guest. The staff is lovely and attentive, always with smiles! The rooms have AC, cable TV, overhead fan, and while the WIFI doesn't work in the room, it will work on the balcony. The bathrooms do not...

We were on Kingfisher in 2013, and lost our hearts to this unique place, therefore we have no doubt to come back. The place is still great, but it is as if the "special" has disappeared. The rooms are as we remembered, big, bright and with a lovely balcony. Too bad the owners do not care to maintain them, for...

This is a fantastic little hotel right on the beach in Unawatuna. You are welcomed by the sound of wind chimes blowing in the breeze and the smell of fresh flowers. Since we booked many months in advance we were able to request a room on the top floor for our five day stay. The room was spotlessly clean, huge,...

We cannot speak highly enough of this hotel and its staff. We stayed here for 4 nights and wish we'd had a few more. The rooms are spacious and clean with a comfortable bed and good sized balcony. Even though Unawatuna can be quite busy especially the Kingfisher restaurant itself, the staff always manage to find you a table or...
