What an absolutely stunning house and location. Beautifully decorated with an open sitting room kitchen that flowed effortlessly to the outside eating area surrounded by trees and a view from the pool and roof terrace to die for! In a nutshell we had a fantastic time. Shar an…

I think this was one of the best airbnb accommodation I have booked so far. The team on ground was amazing and welcomed us with fresh towels and coconuts. The villa is located 8-10 minutes away from the main beach which was amazing. The team would order us tuk tuks when we needed…

The villa is really nice and comfortable, the rooms are spacious, AC works very well and both bathrooms are spectacular. Chirath was extremely resourceful as well as a great cook! Two negative points for me: - the owner is currently building a second little villa next to the fi…

Response from Shar & Tim:
Antoine, thanks for your review. We sincerely apologise for disturbance due to the construction - you absolutely should not have had to deal with that and we will be taking it up with the builder - it is a pity because they have been brilliant up to now. The annual Esala Festival is a significant Buddhist event that brings in thousands for markets, ceremonies and the perehara (parade). It's certainly a lively event and we are happy to be back up on the hill rather than down on the beach where all the action is! To be honest we enjoy the festive air, but understand that it may not appeal to everyone, so following your comment have added a notification about the festival and its potential for disturbance in our listing. We are sorry it impacted your stay and thank you for your constructive feedback.

Wonderful place! Although is up the hill, the tuk tuks take you everywhere in a matter of minutes. The house is wonderful and charming and Manoj and the team are the best! Great, calm and wonderful house! We highly recommend it!

Unakanda is amazing! I just wish I had more time off work or my wife was not heavily pregnant because we would have stayed here a whole lot longer. Full attentiveness as you like or just your own pad to kick back and relax. Manoj & Sujeeva are fantastic, were very welcoming an…

What can I say now that we are home and missing Unakanda desperately! We stayed in Unakanda over Christmas 2015 and we can say that hand over heart, this is one of our best Christmas. From the moment we walked in through the gates we knew we had found a gem and this was not on…

Goodness! A couple of days ago we wrote "Best review ever" in response to Alex' lovely words below. And now this. Thanks so much Patricia, we are absolutely delighted that as first Christmas guests at Unakanda you had a memorable time. The happy times documented by our guests in these reviews is truly gratifying for us and we could not be prouder or more grateful for the continuous efforts of Manoj and Sujeeva. We were also very pleased to learn that Manoj has managed to expand Marina's diet to include curry!!
