In addition to the attraction of our stunning swimming pools and marine water sports, beach games are a major draw at Calamander Unawatuna Beach.
Ocean swimming: Unawatuna beach offers the country’s best and safest year round swimming. A coral reef and rock outcrop protects Unawatuna bay, so the bay is effectively a giant salt-water swimming pool. The calm waters also attract resident sea turtles, that nest on the beach. Bodysurfing is also popular.
Marine sports: The hotel offers ocean kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for free. Other marine sports available for a charge include snorkeling, diving, and whale and dolphin watching. The Unawatuna and Galle bay area offer three wreck dives and a good range of reef dive sites.
Land sports available include beach volleyball, badminton, table tennis, a gym, aqua aerobics, boules and croquet. Beach cricket matches are held regularly. Private fitness lessons are available from our excellent ex-Sri Lankan army fitness instructor, and our equally good ex-Sri Lankan Navy swimming instructor.
Yoga: The hotel specializes in Hatha Yoga classes taught by our resident Yogi. Our Yogi prefers outdoor lessons, as the sea air aids the correct breathing.
Other amenities coming soon include a kid’s club, playground, full service spa, additional shops, a conference room, a cinema, mini golf, and an Apple I-Pad station.
