The closest decent place to Unakanda. Varied menu. Very good local rice and curry. The wood fired pizza is a bit too cheesy. Lilli loves the Nutella and banana pizza! Great veiw of Unawatuna bay by night or day. 5-10min whether walking down the hill or by tuktuk.

Kahanda Kanda

Kahanda Kanda

Tim’s favourite!! A very cool boutique hotel inland and above Koggola Lake, with distant views over the green hinterland to sea and over the lake. They serve great cocktails in the bar pavilion while your meals are being prepared. Excellent food is then served in the separate dining pavilion. Book first and check they are ok with young children. About 45min by tuktuk from Unakanda.
