I just wanted to say what a fabulous time we had at Moonwater Retreat in Unawatuna. It was our first time in Sri Lanka and we found the accommodation, staff, food and outdoor amenities to be everything you could ever want for, to enjoy an amazing holiday. Mrs Chandrani – WOW! She was incredible and the hospitality and service levels provided by all the staff were another level.
Moonwater house was lovely and the perfect one when it comes to design, location, staff, and space. The pool was amazing surrounded by the coconut trees and beautiful scenery – natural oasis!
My Husband and I recently got married in Unawatuna and stayed at the beautiful Moonwater House for our wedding week. As an Aussie living in Dubai, Sri Lanka proved a perfect destination for our nuptials and the location was perfect for family flying in from all over the world. The house is equipped with all the trimmings of ‘home’ to make even the shortest stay feel like a home away from home. We would highly recommend Moonwater to anyone visiting the south of Sri Lanka. The team at Moonwater ensure that your stay is pleasurable and never forgotten. Our wedding guests are still talking so highly of the holiday and wedding in Sri Lanka and the amazing hospitality of Chandrani, Talak and Gino.
Well Moonwater, what can I say; you’re more of a state of mind and a gorgeous resort-style villa in Sri Lanka. Our time under your protection allowed us to realign with what’s important in life; family, friends, dancing, surfing and the clean nature of people not bound by a capitalistic drive.
Moonwater House is situated in a great location a few mins tuk-tuk to the beach and amenities but you feel like you are in a tropical jungle paradise. It is very relaxed with very clean, cozy facilities including a great pool. The whole team at the house couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating during my stay. I recommend anyone staying in Unawatuna to stay here.
We were very fortunate to have stayed at Moon water during our extensive travels in Sri Lanka.
The property is a gem in a superb beach front town. We particularly liked the open plan layout, great space to move and socialise. Beautiful thatched ceilings and amazing brass decorative inlaid floors, just added to the charm. The tuk-tuk driver, Gino was amazing, his english and wealth of local knowledge was very helpful. He was great with the kids, making reed grass toys on the edge of the beach during one of our surfing expeditions. An amazing relaxing place to stay!
The staff were beyond friendly and helpful. Every day a morning cuppa was awaiting us when we woke up. Both Mrs Chandrani and her husband Talek were always on hand to help with anything we needed and they were genuinely happy to help. The owners of Moonwater even helped us get around and about Unawatuna with a private tuk-tuk organised for us and recommendations on all the best local eateries, nightlife and shopping. We can’t recommend Moonwater enough, you are sure to have a happy stay when you visit.!
All was as we thought it would be. Lovely setting and a great pool. The manager and the housekeeper were wonderful and very helpful. I would certainly return here. The beach and restaurants are a tuk-tuk ride away but they are easily arranged to pick you up and there are some shops a short walk away. Unawatuna train station is only a couple of minutes walk away if you are looking for the location of the villa. A great experience, thank you all very much!
