Unawatuna, Sri Lanka

Located just 10 minutes from Galle Town, this private luxury villa is set near Unawatuna Bay overlooking the Indian Ocean and surrounded by beautiful green gardens. Comfortable and perfectly managed, The Beach Hut is the perfect getaway for honeymooners, couples and small families looking to spend some quality time together.

Comprised of two large en-suite bedrooms and one twin room (perfect for young children as it connects to the main bedroom), this contemporary villa is gorgeously finished with traditional Sri Lankan artwork, stone floors and handmade colourful sofas. The open plan living area on the ground floor and the modern kitchen both overlook the private pool and luscious gardens that stretch all the way down to the beach.

Aside from its idyllic and peaceful surroundings, the staff is what sets this place apart from the rest. The live-in steward is on hand to prepare delicious local curries and other basic favourites, and a house cleaner comes in daily to assist him with the cleaning and shopping, making your stay completely hassle-free. There is also a friendly night watchman to keep the wild monkeys at bay.

Yoga, massages and other rejuvenating treatments can all be arranged, as well as snorkelling and surfing on nearby Unawatuna Beach.  Whether its enjoying a romantic candlelit meal under the stars, lounging in the hammocks on the lawn, or hanging out in the local bars and restaurants, you are guaranteed to leave a great deal more relaxed.

The Beach Hut Testimonials

Dear Melissa,

Thank you so much for everything! We had a truly amazing time!

The Beach Hut is fabulous, I can’t recommend it enough. It is an incredible villa, beautifully decorated to a very high standard, with an wonderful view from every area of the house. The cook Chandra is outstanding, it was the best food we had in Sri Lanka. Deepani kindly did all our washing and played with our kids to give us time to have an unforgettable massage on the balcony that she had helped us organise.

Wajai is close enough to walk for safe swimming and Galle is a 10 min tuk took ride away, so we were totally happy and in heaven there!

Yes the kids bedroom is literally that, but it didn’t matter to us at all, the house is enormous and they just slept in their room and had plenty of place to play/hangout elsewhere. You could easily have 10 people round for dinner and not feel cramped at all.

Please pass on my thanks to Simon for such a great service from Lightfoot.

Warm wishes,
