Tim purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Tim chose Unawatuna
Unakanda is ideally located near Galle and the wonderful UNESCO world heritage listed Galle Fort with its fabulous architecture, quirky shops, galleries and cool cafes. The property is minutes from Unawatuna beach and has easy access to the lovely cafes, restaurants and hidden little beaches scattered along the coast between Unawatuna and Mirissa. Whale watching, turtle hatchery, cycle tours, diving, surfing, shopping, tea plantations, silk worm factory are all nearby. Yet many of our guests shelve their plans to explore, opting instead to chill by the infinity pool or soak in the separate plunge pool, or laze on the tree shaded roof terrace with its 270 degree sea view, or just watch the endless parade of wildlife while sipping on fresh coconut juice.....
What makes this Villa unique
Our team are special. Big smiles, excellent cooks and delighted to provide local information or help arrange outings and activities. Although it is unique, guests frequently tell us that Unakanda feels like home, which we feel is a huge complement and testament to the relaxing nature of our little piece of paradise.

Superbe villa L'endroit oú séjourner sans hésiter
Nous avons passé une semaine à la villa Unakanda, cette maison est superbe, la vus est magnifique sur la baie d'unawatuna, l'emplacement est parfait (à 5 minutes du lagon de wijaya beach où l'on peut nager avec les tortues ....)
L'accueil de manoj ET sujeva est vraiment chaleureux et convivial.
Nous avons adoré faire le marché de poissons avec Manoj qui le soir nous a cuisiné des beignets de calamars pour l'apéritif, des gambas, des poissons.....
Bref ici c'est le paradis !
Tim est très réactif et répond à tous les messages, ET donne plein de conseils et de bonnes adresses, Manoj ET Sujeva sont aux petits soins tout en étant discrets.

Merci beaucoup Aurelie! We are delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay :)
Beautiful private villa with an infinity pool
I stayed in Unakanda with 3 friends in September 2015, as the last part of our trip around Sri Lanka. We spent there 3 absolutely amazing days, even despite some rain (it was a rainy season). My contact with the hosts (Shar and Tim) prior the arrival was smooth. They were both friendly and extremely helpful. When we arrived to Unakanda we were greeted by two local hosts - Manoj and Sujeeva who looked after us and the villa during the entire stay. They cooked for us delicious meals, looked after the garden and were helpful with any ad hoc requests. They made us feel like at home. Unakanda is a beautiful villa which combines modern design with a local touch. It is surrounded by a lush garden with the private infinity pool. The interior is magnificent too. The outdoor bathrooms are the highlight of the place, but so are the furniture and fabrics which give a local touch. All is perfectly designed and well thought. Well done! It was a pleasure to stay in Unakanda and we would definitely recommend it to everyone for a tranquil and relaxing vacation.
Thanks Arek! It was a pleasure to host you and your friends and we hope to see you again some time :)
