My stay at Tropical Retreat was very nice. The manager and chef always were very mindful of my needs and did whatever they could to make me happy. I was completely relaxed from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. The hotel can arrange for transport, tours, meals, recommend shopping spots, and even bring your morning coffee to your balcony. Since the hotel has a small number of rooms, you can expect the one on one attention you seek on holidays. From stocking the fridge with my favorite beverage to setting up my whale watching adventure, this staff was on top of their game. When I go on holiday I seek #1 comfort, #2 friendliness, and #3 fun things to do. With the hotels staff and proximity to the beach, shops, and cultural hot spots...if this is what you seek, Tropical Retreat is the place to stay.

Tropical Retreat has recently opened as a hotel. It was previously a private house. It is set in lush gardens up a very steep drive just 5 minutes drive from the beautiful beach in Unawantuna and 10 mins drive from Galle. The staff are so helpful and accommodated our every need. They arranged the tut tuts required. We stayed in the roof top suite with an extra bed for our teenage daughter. Large room with comfortably bed and 2 huge balcony’s with fabulous views. The Sri Lankan breakfast was delicious. There is a large new pool with sun beds.

Friendly staff. The hosts made us feel very welcome and were super helpful. Breakfast was lovely, served at times suitable to us. Located in a quiet place, few min after Unawatuna railway station. We enjoyed the tranquility and calm atmosphere.
