What Client says about Hotel Flower Garden,Sri Lanka  
     
  "Our Little piece of Paradise  
 

We discovered The wonderful Hotel Flower Garden in 2001,Liking the name of the hotel and the sound of Unawatuna beach we booked in for a couple of nights.We were met at the airport and driven through the rush hour traffic to The Hotel..hesitant about what we would find!As soon as the gates opened we knew no mistakes had been made...we loved it,we were greeted by the wonderful staff to carry our bags and then by Sassi the owner and now dear friend..we whilst there were treated like royalty nothing was too much trouble,And believe me I take some pleasing!! (A fussy vegetarian and not a bad cook myself) Food was excellent,Staff..really lovely(even naughty Mahesh),friendly,fun and always willing to climb to get a coconut or make a pot of tea if that is what you fancy.The cabana's are perfect for that romantic get away,four poster bed,lovely bathroom and your own little veranda and garden with the most beautiful flowers.. Sassi arranged the best trips for us with fantastic drivers who were safe and very knowledgeable,0n route to various sights our driver would detour to show us "something Else" of interest. I can't speak highly enough of any of the trips arranged for us by Sassi....we found it all...fantastic safe beach,friendly people,peace and tranquility..And the Hotel Flower Garden!! Our little piece of paradise....We have travelled the world and visited most places just once...we have been back to Sri Lanka every year since finding our spot and will be going back again! With a Cabana named after us we have to go back,or as we like to call it now..Home from home!! Landy and Dickie Kelly UK

 
     
  "Sassi's Magic.  
 

We have arrived home after our 7th stay at the Flower Garden. It just gets better and better. I have never stayed anywhere in the word where you are so well looked after. Sassi and his boys are fantastic, perfect service, great food and great fun. The cabanas have a fantastic shower room, better that most large hotels. The beds are without a doubt the most comfortable that I have slept on in a long time, every year I can't wait to get back. The 2 dogs are very placid and not a problem at all. When you come back from the beach the great pleasure of slipping into the pool is amazing, it is always very clean and well kept. The gardens are beautiful and so tranquil that it is a joy to be there.
Sassi, keep doing your MAGIC at the Flower Garden and Doug and I will see you next year.
Love to all.
Sandy

 
     
  "Fantastic value, great services  
 

I wish I didn't wait so long to post my review. Here it is, nearly 3 months later, as written when we returned home.
"We just returned from a 2-week holiday in Sri Lanka. We stayed at Flower Garden, chosen after a thorough search through the reviews on this website. Having re-read the reviews, can see how true they were indeed, except for a few negative ones that sound more like they were written by jealous competition! Some of the things we loved about it:
- wonderful setting, beautiful and very well maintained gardens;
- wildlife- monkeys, an array of birds, chipmunks, various (non-dangerous) reptiles, butterflies etc;
- lovely cabanas, with private terrace, spacious and comfortable, mosquito nets and coils, modern bathrooms and no TV (what a blessing!);
- close to beach but far enough to not be disturbed by late evening party noise; we were there during the full moon celebrations and believe me the noise on the beach was very loud, rave-like music and a lot of heavy beat, but thankfully we didn't hear much of it;
- great food;
- attentive service;
- constant bustle around the place, from clearing leaves, to cleaning the pool and watering the garden;
- safety- someone is keeping watch on the property throughout the night- so you could probably sleep with your door open, if it wasn't for the mossies, chipmunks and other creatures!
- flexibility- a couple of times we slept in late but when we arrived at the restaurant terrace (an hour after breakfast finished) food appeared on the table straight away when maybe it would have been better for business to ask if we wanted to order lunch! We were touched by how attentive everybody is and how there is no hard sale at all- which works wonders as you actually end up finding ways to give them more business.
We chose the bed & breakfast option as we wanted to try different places for dinner. However, food at Flower Garden is so much superior to everywhere else (except for maybe one or two other places) that we ended up eating there 6 out of 10 times! Sassi's menu is indeed very European but he will probably prepare anything you wish if you ask- we didn't need to. He also prepares lovely Sri Lankan curries, we had that once and about 10 different dishes were served- it was delicious!
Special mention of all staff, seen or not seen- they are all really nice, unimposing yet friendly and very accommodating and helpful- from telling you what the trees are to showing you where to spot the monkeys etc
Ask Sassi about booking any trips- he arranged a very good deal for us to go whale watching (we paid half as much as the others on the boat!). He can also arrange good deals for other hotels so if you plan on booking elsewhere in Sri Lanka ask Sassi before making a firm booking, he might be able to get better rates.
It feels like a big family and all staff seem to be loving it there- that is hard to achieve anywhere so this must be proof of Sassi's great management and people skills- and him and his staff always have a smile on their faces! Must remember this is a country that was faced with great tragedy (the tsunami) and is still fighting a war so it is so hopeful to see that things can work for better. We noticed that Sassi is constantly improving the property- few things only during out stay, like building a wall near the small entrance and arranging a few lotus pools around the restaurant.
Some other highlights:
- The dogs are great, very friendly and never bothering you when eating or at any other times really. They makes you feel at home.
- Very nice pool, great for a pre-dinner swim.
- Wake up calls from the monkeys- I am now trying to find a download with their calls for my alarm, it was the best and we are missing it already!

 
     
  "Hotel Flower Garden has everything!  
 

We staying at HFG for the 2nd time, having discovered it in 2006. We were very happy to return with 2 children this time and it was fantastic. Sassi and all the boys, including Mahesh, make sure that you are looked after and there is a lovely, friendly atmosphere at the hotel. Our eldest son loves the staff, especially Mahesh, and the location of the hotel, allows you to view amazing wildlife and nature. The facilities are lovely and very well looked after - having travelled extensively in Sri Lanka, I couldn't recommend this hotel enough.

 
     
  "favorite hotel in all of Sri Lanka  
 

was at the Flower Garden towards the end of my 3 week stay in Sri Lanka. Of all the hotels I stayed at, including Amaya Lake and Amaya Hills, this was my favorite.

The rooms are great with a beautiful, clean bathroom. The bungalow layout was very nice for privacy and Sassi and his staff could not have done more for us. The food was superb especially the fruit plate at breakfast and the beef at dinner. The pool and grounds were very nice. For something just a bit different, ask to watch them feed their carnivorous fish in the morning.

Sassi even got me a very nice price on a hotel room in Colombo.

The only negative to report was the masseuse, however not much lost at 1,100 SLR for an hour on my back.

Looking back on my trip, I wish I stayed a day longer at the Flower Garden and a day less in Colombo. If I am ever back in Sri Lanka, I will make a point to stay at the Flower Garden again.

 
     
  "Perfect holiday place  
 

Hotel Flower Garden is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your holiday. We stayed there for a week, which is unusual long for us. There was no reason to leave. Our kids (3 and 5) enjoyed the pool the most, because the sea was too rough in July. The complex is beautiful and rooms are clean and well decorated.
It shows that the manager is educated is Europe. The hygiene and service is of very high quality, but the prices are still Sri Lankan. Good restaurant and massage inside the complex. Beaches are close by and a lot to see and do in and around Unawatuna.

 
     
  "The Flower Garden made our holiday!!  
 

We had been recommended the Flower Garden by some friends of ours that had stayed there before and when we arrived we knew why they had recommended it!! We had an absolutely delightful stay. The staff were amazing particuarly Mahesh our waiter and Sassi the owner who was so helpfull and accomodating, nothing is too much trouble! Honestly it is hard to describe the levels that they go to to make sure that you have an amazing stay. The hotel itself is gorgeous and Sassi is constantly striving to improve it. The cabana's are beautiful and this is without doubt the place to stay in Unawatuna. The food here is also fantastic (the steak is a must!) and we were even allowed into the kitchen ourselves and taught for free how to cook authentic rice and curry! We stayed here for 7nights before heading off to see other parts of the island (on a tour that we booked through the flower garden) and Sassi called us on several occasions during our tour just to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and that everything was ok. This hotel and the service we received really did make our holiday and we miss the place greatly and can't wait to go back! Many thanks to Sassi and Mahesh for a wonderful holiday and hope to see you again soon. Gavin and Anna.
