Penthouse on the Rocks is a grand villa nestled on a cliff face, overlooking the Indian Ocean. It is constructed in stone, coral, wood and glass. It is located a 100m from Unawatuna beach. The surrounding jungle creates a sublime ambiance, where monkeys and birds abound. The landscape gardens present a vast variety of tropical flowers.

The villa is a perfect blend of luxury and Eco styles.

Consisting of a vast open plan, the Penthouse apartment has panoramic views from all rooms. The architecture and furniture are all of original design, based on natural elements. The stone bathroom is impressive.

The grand balcony is the best place to enjoy the Ocean view all day long.

And it will be a pleasure for me to inform you about all the best places to visit around.

"Great hospitality"

Had a wonderful stay here: the welcome was personal even at 0500 am; the view is fantastic and the location is in the heart of the town; shops and the beach are in walking distance. The food - in particular the breakfast - is delicious and varied. The apartments are well equipped with a personal touch with art objects. It is very quiet and ideal to relax.
