Thambapanni Retreat  Price rating for Thambapanni RetreatPrice rating for Thambapanni Retreat South Coast



Cut into the rock face of Unawantuna’s hills amidst the bamboo groves, Thambapanni Retreat opened in 2003.  A series of guest rooms and 7 well-appointed suites. The natural rock boulders of the area are utilised as decorative features and bedside tables.  A fusion of Asian architecture and essence of colonial heritage.  Tucked away from Unawatuna’s commercial buzz yet walking distance from some excellent restaurants.

A small turquoise swimming pool reflects the lush palms and vines whilst birds and monkeys vie for attention. Wellness of mind and body are embraced in this retreat with healthy and delicious food, ayurvedic spa and reiki treatments offered as a daily programme (in-season) along with yoga/meditation.  Wake up to view the amazing, lush surroundings and the sound of the Indian Ocean.





  • Snorkelling in Unawatuna’s beautiful reef and around the secret rocks of Jungle Beach.
  • Buzzing nightlife of Unawatuna beach village and escaping to sleep on the quiet hillside.
  • Sipping cocktails by the pool before dining on a healthy feast of seafood.
  • Mosquitoes can be a prevalent after occasional rain in peak season in the higher bungalows.
  • The climb up to the bungalows/suites may leave you panting and becomes rather arduous by day 3 – keeps you fit though.
  • Unawatuna beach is very narrow and becomes rather crowded Jan-Mar. But it is easy to escape to Jungle beach or other deserted bays on the coastline
