For us a family with two kids (14&18yrs) the three days in the Dionis villa Shakti Apartment in Unawatuna were very relaxing and well organised. Not only the beautiful, lush, well-kept garden and access from the apartment into the garden were overwhelming, but also the short walking distance to the secluded Jungle Beach, as well as the lunches at the one available restaurant, were just what we had been looking for at the end of a three-week roundtrip through Sri Lanka. Furthermore, Auntie’s son, Tiron, was a great assistance in providing quick and reliable transport by tuk-tuk with normal prices for foreigners. The rice and curry meal we were invited to was lovely prepared by Auntie and tasted great. Asha’s English was just perfect and she was very able to answer all our questions. She had real charisma and both women had real presence, making us feel very welcome and secure. We were treated most forthcoming and with great friendliness. Generally the place and atmosphere can be described as a see-devi place, i.e. a place filled with satisfaction and peace. Definitely a recommendation and worth a visit

Our stay was Just perfect. The villa is located out of the main street of unawatuna making the accomodation quite secluded but very peaceful and relaxed. Our hosts were kind and open to help with any request or inquiry we Might had. They have been very kind with our two Kids and their Little dog played with them a lot making their stay very Pleasant. Villa is a short ride by tuk tuk from main road , the beach and restaurants but you could walk 10 min through the forest.

This place was hands down the best place me and my girlfriend stayed in Sri Lanka whilst travelling. Francesca and Raju were very polite and respectful and allowed us to be independent and have our own space. The garden was beautiful with lots of wildlife to observe, we also luckily had a lovely balcony with outdoor seating and kitchen area. Our hosts recommended good places to eat and drink and the location was perfect; close enough to walk down to the beach but far enough to have some peace and quiet in the hills. We would 100% recommend to anyone staying in Unawatuna because great value for money too! Thank you very much for being so warm and welcoming.

Nice spacious and clean apartment in a beautiful garden. Great location if you want a quiet neigborhood near to both unawatuna and jungle beach. If i would have to nitpick something it would be the ceiling fan in the livingroom wich was turning off byself after a few minutes, my guess overheating.

The hosts have very good evaluations so we expected a great stay, but unfortunately we did not have a good experience. There was no internet (even though it was advertised as such), a snake entered the premises and instead of helping us to chase it away, the hosts started yelling at us "what is your problem? This is Sri Lanka, there are snakes and crocodiles." I've stayed in many places in Sri Lanka with very polite hosts, internet, and no snakes or crocodiles. I am sorry I really cannot recommend this establishment.

The Villa was better than we imagined. Gated community, beautiful garden. The owners welcomed us very well. The entire vacation they helped us, talked about the country a lot. On the Unawatuna beach, this is the best place for a holiday. We compared prices and quality with others that is closer to the sea. But was disappointed and the whole vacation have decided to spend in this Villa. We are grateful to Francesca and Raju for the warm welcome! Would definitely recommend a stay in this Villa! You will not regret it!

We are a young couple : I'm Italian, my husband is Srilankan.
We own the Dionis Villa, five charming self.catered apartments villa situated in the Jungle of Unawatuna, 10 minutes walk from Unawatuna Bay and from Jungle beach.
Dionis Villa is a responsible tourism as well.
We believe responsible tourism is a better way to see the world. Not only do you get a more authentic experience, but your holiday benefits local people and the environment.
Responsible travel is about bringing you closer to local cultures and environments by involving local people in tourism. It's about doing this in a fair way that helps ensure that they will give you an even warmer welcome. For example, a local guide will open your eyes to their cultures and ways of life far better than an expat guide could ever do – they will also earn a much needed income from you.
The responsible traveler prefers smaller groups, and to meet some local people (as well as fellow travelers) rather than be surrounded by 1000's of people from back home. They don't like being herded about in a large crowd like nameless faces and understand that traveling in smaller groups makes local people and cultures more accessible.
The responsible travelers wants to get a little bit more out of their travels, and to give a little bit back to the special places and people that they encounter. They want deeper and more real travel experiences. The responsible traveler values authenticity – experiences integral to local people's traditions, cultures and rituals - rather than those created for tourism, or those whose existing meanings and uses have become lost as they have been packaged up for tourism.

Responsible travel is about re-discovering how to experience nature and to be in it, feeling it, smelling it and learning about it rather than just looking at it. Through this they replenish their souls.

The responsible traveler understands local peoples relationship with environments, and that income from tourism can be a powerful incentive for conservation. The responsible traveler values diversity – diversity of people, cultures and environments.

Above all else the responsible traveler wants to cut loose and experience their world.

Let’s do it together!
