A note from Palm Grove
Updated 20/07/01 Safety precautions are provided by the property and are not checked by Tripadvisor for accuracy.


#4 of 230 B&Bs / Inns in Unawatuna
Palm Grove is located in an idyllic village setting. Very quiet setting. Away from the nightlife but still within walking distance to all locations. Only a 10 minute stroll to the shops,bars,restaurants and the beautiful bay of Unawatuna. There are many tours that you can take from Unawatuna to suit all tastes. The turtle hatchery is less than 20 minutes away, as is Koggala Lake where you can take a relaxing boat trip on the Lagoon and visit some of the small islands situated there. A three to four day tour will take you to Ella with its waterfalls, Nuwara Eliya with its tea plantations and greenery. The 'Temple of the Tooth' at Kandy and the nearby 'Elephant Orphanage' are also well worth a visit.

We stayed four nights at Palm Grove and loved it all. Great location, huge comfortable room with air con and fan, great rooftop and other spaces for relaxing. But best of all was the fantastic and helpful hospitality from Lorraine and Paul, plus their staff. Highly recommended.

Most beautiful guest house I've stayed in. Lorraine and Paul made us feel so welcome and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was fresh and was available at any time that you wanted it. Plenty of relaxing places to chill amid the monkeys, chipmunks and birds in the palm trees surrounding us. Rooms where cleaned to a high standard daily , hot showers fresh towels and washing facilities for laundry were available daily done by the staff. Rooms were Air conditioned and fridges available to buy drinks. Short walk to the beach and drivers available to take you in the tuk tuk to idyllic beautiful beaches and sanctuarys. Would recommend staying here to everyone I know. A beautiful paradise can't wait to book again. Thank you so much Lorraine and Paul love Vicky and Rory xx

Rooms were spacious and super clean, hot water, and good amenities. Lorraine and Paul are wonderful hosts, and their staff is absolutely amazing, very friendly and helpful. We loved the terrace on the top and spent most of our time relaxing at the guesthouse away from the bustling noise. highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to visit the busy unawatuna but has a piece of paradise to come back to. Its close enough to the beach and shops but far away enough to get. a good nights sleep.

We really enjoyed our stay in lovely quiet Palm grove. A small walk to the beach, in a quiet back street. The room was excellent with two single beds and a double bed, all with good mosquito nets. The owners and staff were super-helpful and friendly, especially to our kids. The honesty fridge was nice and also great that there was space for us to put our own food and drinks. The areas for relaxing with hammocks and sofas were lovely, we could see monkeys and squirrels all day long. The breakfast was also lovely, and although a little pricey it was free for the children which made it good value overall. We would love to come back!
