Moonwater is a beautiful beach house set in 45 acres of lush tropical landscaped gardens. This quiet secluded retreat with pool is located in beautiful Unawatuna.
This unique property was an original village house renovated true to local design. Its structure highlights the beauty of Sri Lankan architecture and also has a separate en-suite double bedroom above the converted garage room. The main house bedrooms are all fully air conditioned and spill out onto private courtyards giving access to the gardens and the pool. A variety of indoor sitting areas and a morning room next to the kitchen welcome company and conversation. It is a solid beach house that flows from one room to the other offering both privacy and open spaces for entertaining.
The bedrooms are all fully air-conditioned as well as the TV/Games room and there is wifi connectivity throughout.
Snorkeling and Scuba diving is possible in Unawatuna Bay. There are also several surf points nearby as well as a variety of interesting places to visit and things to do.
An entire morning can be spent exploring the maze of narrow roadways lined with Dutch and British Colonial era buildings that are still in use, sturdy ramparts overlooking Galle's international cricket stadium, and scattering of shops , art galleries, museums, boutique hotels and cafes. Galle is a veritable Aladdin's treasure trove of gemstone shops, arty shops, cafe's and collectables.
If shopping isn't your thing, why not take a boat ride on Koggala lake where rural life unfolds and along the way visit a village temple or cinnamon estate.
Or spend your time locally in the magical beachside village of Unawatuna sampling the cafes, restaurants and shops. You can sit at tables as the water laps at your feet or lie for hours on the sun lounges.
Our property is fully staffed and we are happy to consider any requests to make your stay at Moonwater very special.
If your'e travelling with a small child, the house is equipped with a cot, highchair and pram, sand toys and childrens indoor toys. There are also car seats available for transfers to and from the airport which we are happy to organise.
For the older kids (and young adults), the house offers bikes, cricket set, basket ball hoop, badminton, swing tennis and botchi.
We are sure you will enjoy your stay at Moonwater and look forward to hearing from you.

"Incredible home, within close striking distance of divine beaches."
The first thing that struck us, was the warmth of the house help. Nothing was a problem. The home has a practical layout and exquisite design details. Think: colonial type building with high ceilings, bespoke kitchen, chill out areas, and bedrooms that ooze charm. You will be blown away with the cuisine. Sri-Lankan food in my humble opinion is a step up from their closer neighbor India. Succulent grilled seafood, mouth watering mild curries and delectable tropical fruits.
