Sri Lanka's Best Beach Resort

Calamander Unawatuna Beach is the only four star resort hotel located directly on Sri Lanka's best beach, Unawatuna, on which it has the beach frontage of 135 meters.

The Beach

Unawatuna beach, next to Galle on the island’s south coast, is rated one of the best beaches in the world and is famous for its natural beauty and intimacy. Unawatuna was voted ‘The World’s Best Tropical Beach’ by The Discovery Channel, and ‘Best Beach in the World’ by Mark Ellingham, founder of the Rough Guides. No other beach resort in Sri Lanka offers the same combination of golden sand, a protected bay, spectacular sunsets, Sri Lanka’s safest swimming all year round, and a reputation for being hassle free and laid back; all conveniently close to a wide variety of shopping, dining and cultural attractions only 15 minutes away in Galle Fort, Sri Lanka’s Riviera and a UNESCO heritage site. This combination of attractions, unique in Sri Lanka, is just 90 minutes away from Colombo airport. Paradise has never been so accessible.
