BEDSPACE - UNAWATUNA, SRI LANKA







Hello guys!

This weekend Nayan and I were invited to BedSpace in Unawatuna which has a nice guest house vibe to it. I want to do more reviews with guest houses or private villas, instead of hotels all the time so that I do have variation for you guys to choose from before booking your weekend getaway.

Bedspace is super easy to find if you just put it on google maps, it's pretty hard to miss. They do not have parking within their premises so we had to park a few meters ahead on a bare land, which is usually their parking spot and it is suppose to be very safe. As we arrived we were greeted by Paige who is the manager at Bed space. She also purchased a dress from X.TINA the day the pup collection was out, so I was excited to deliver her package to her myself. As I walked in to the guest house I noticed that they had a few well trained cats with cute little collars and bells roaming around. I was excited to know that they had adopted 6 cats and also had 2 dogs! Rocky the dog is the main guy that runs around at Bed Space. It was quite difficult to get a picture with him but I managed to get a snap with both dogs before leaving, you will see more of it on my instagram! All of the animals are very friendly and gentle so theres no need to worry.

One of the mains attractions at BedSpace is their restaurant. It's been the number 1 restaurant on trip advisor for Unawatuna for over a year and it's also in the top 10 best restaurants in the southern province! We were pretty impressed by that and we were looking forward to dinner and breakfast.

After we settled in we headed down to the restaurant and had two smoothies and salads. I had a raw beetroot salad and I actually enjoyed it, picture is up on my instagram and yes, I enjoyed a RAW salad! Bed space is not location on the beach so it's a 5 minute walk to the beach from a little short cut. The walk is quite nice, I was able to take some nice photographs for X.TINA Instagram and we also had a look at the shops on our way to the beach. If you prefer not to walk, there are plenty of trishaws that are willing to take you the short distance. 

After heading back from our relaxing time at the beach, we freshened up and headed down for dinner. The atmosphere is really nice at night especially with the lights and the music. The restaurant was quite full with outside guests dinning in. Nayan ordered a chicken burger and I ordered the prawn pad Thai and a glass of white wine. Pad Thai is also a dish I really enjoy occasionally so I thought I would go for it. I have to say the plating at Bed Space looks absolutely incredible! The chicken burger is not your typical burger. This comes with some sort of pita bread instead of a burger bun and it was filled with absolute goodness! He really enjoyed his dinner with a side of thick fries as well. As for my pad Thai the first mouth I took I noticed that the noodle was quite hard to chew. This was me comparing all the other pad thais I've had and this was the first time the noodle was quite difficult to chew. When we spoke to the waiter he was kind enough to replace my dish with a new one but I honestly think it's the type of noodle they use. The prawns however were so good and the flavor overall of the pad Thai was really, really good! 

The next morning we woke up around 8am and headed down for breakfast. What I love about Bed space is breakfast is available the whole day! There is really no need to rush and try and make it before breakfast finishes. A few of you guys asked me if they had a pool and no, there is no pool at bed space but the beach is just a 5 minute walk away. Sundays special was cowboy eggs with beans. The breakfast was my favorite meal we had during our stay with BedSpace. Instead of the beans Nayan had bacon and two sausages and he loved it as much as I did! It's got a slight Mexican touch to it the way the dish looks, don't you think? The beans also had a slight Mexican flavor to it, if I'm not mistaken. Breakfast also comes with toasted bread and jam with juice and tea/coffee. The whole breakfast comes on a pita bread and I really enjoyed the breakfast ALOT!

The rooms are quite spacious and very clean. Our bed was super comfortable and I had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. I wanted to sleep for slightly longer, while Nayan was more interested in seeing what was there for breakfast haha! They also have a cat named Kiki who is also black and white like my Kiki who was at home, so I decided to feature Kiki in this blog post. You will see more of our stay in our video, so stay tuned to my Instagram not to miss it!

Bed space is the perfect place if you're looking to get away from typical hotels and just relax and enjoy the company in a guest house. Surrounded by awesome people, animals and amazing food, you're definitely in for a good weekend getaway! hope you guys had a great weekend as well!
