We really enjoyed our 4 night stay. Great location, close walk to everything (food and beach) and at a bargain price. Staff were very friendly, there is a good range of higher end rooms and budget accommodation t suit anyones needs. Lovely tropical garden and a nice place to relax.

The room we stayed in at Silva retreat was the perfect way to end our holiday in Sri Lanka. All the rooms are brand new, with a very modern but still natural-wise design. The cherry on top was the huge terrace appointed with a bar and outdoor furniture, that made our evenings so much more special. Not to mention about...

Stayed here for 6 nights. The rooms are new, clean, neat, simple and modern. Nice little garden in the middle with a seating area outside each room. Our luggage was lost at the airport and the owners were super helpful in communicating with the airport staff to arrange delivery. Great location on the strip off the main road, so there...

Beautiful location with lush tropical vegetation around, extremely friendly owners, good rooms with stylish bathrooms (especially the ones with open roofs in the shower!), all well worth the money. If I come to Unawatuna next time I would definitely think of staying here again! Thank you for a nice time!

Really loved our stay at Silva Rest! After traveling through Sri Lanka for 2.5 weeks, we ended off in Unawatuna and Silva Rest definitely was the best accommodation we had throughout our entire trip - exact same price range too. Beautiful, simple rooms with comfortable beds and a lovely balcony sitting area just outside the bungalow. The staff was wonderful...

Silva rest is more like a boutique hotel, with bungalow style apartments with separate rooms and interconnecting rooms. Within it compound, it's a clever fusion of traditional Sri Lankan architecture and modern contemporary design. I stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and 4 kids. Since the hotel got only one room on the first night we stayed at...

We love nature and were very excited about little jungle in front of the property. But unfortunately it has it's minus - which is mosquitoes in the morning and evening time. Nice room and we got really good price for the taxi transfer to Kosgoda beach later on. Rooms are spacious, quiet and clean. Breakfast is good, we booked breakfast...

This hotel is in 2 parts either side of the road, but both are really quiet. We stayed in the newer part owned by the son of the boss. The rooms front onto a private garden and are good sized, complete with air on and fans. Polished concrete is used in plenty inside, but this is a good thing as...

I chose this hotel as it is centrally located in Unawatuna. I stayed in one of the deluxe rooms with aircon, which was located in a block of four rooms across the road from the main hotel buildings. All of these rooms have outside terraces with seating and look out over beautiful gardens. The location of the hotel was fantastic,...
