Beautifully styled Eco Villa literally 2 mins from the beach! ;-) I am glad we choose to stay here as the beach front options were a little too noisy for us at nights. Gayan and Jenny were super friendly and made us feel so much at home in an instant. The rooms were tastefully decorated and was simple and functional....

I really fall in love with this place! Such a great spot! Beautiful architecture... And a lake that they have on backyard is sooo nice. Room was big, clean and very good design...Also just 5 mins to the beach... Owners are good people, super friendly and helpful.

We booked this place last minute and we couldn't be happier. The staff were friendly and offered us high tea and juice on arrival. We stayed in the cottages. Basic but beautifully done. Clean and lots of extras, toothpaste, bite cream, water everyday two large bottles. It was some nice little touches. Breakfast menu is great. It is so quite...

Imagine waking up on a lovely sunny morning, stepping out onto your private balcony and surveying the mini-jungle and pond below with birdsong, peacocks crying and the glimpse of a monkey or two. Then you go down to the open-air eating area for a delicious breakfast (many choices available). This in part describes our experience of the beautiful Dunes Hotel....

We had a brief stay in Unawatuna and discovered the Dunes in January 2016. The hotel is a calm and very pleasant retreat in this busy touristic village, just three minutes walk from the beach. The rooms are large and well furnished in cosy modern Asian style. And the owner was extremely nice, helping us to redress problems that Agoda...

We stayed here for three nights! If was lovely had we listened to the lonely planet guide we would have given unawatuna a miss!! So glad we didn't! The dunes is like a little oasis in the middle of unawatuna! When you turn off the Main Street into the dunes it is very tranquil! The room was lovely! So clean...

Been coming to dunes for a couple years now and simply said, it's my home away from home. Every memory I have of my frequent visits to the south of Sri Lanka has Dunes in some way or the other in it. Hands down the best place to stay in Una and much love to Gayan and Jenny. You guys...

We stayed only one night at dunes unawaruna. Room was spacious and nicely decorated. The rooms faces a backyard garden which was quiet and far from the noisy delawala road. It's close to the beach and restaurants. Breakfast was included in the room price and quiet various. I do recommend this place in unawaruna

The rooms are very stylish and the bathroom is very functional but that's about it, considering the price you pay. Rooms are warm and stuffy and there isn't much ventilation except for a small fan on the wall. If you think of opening windows, your room and bathroom will be invaded by mosquitos. They claim to be eco-friendly which basically...
