Hi there - How far is this hotel from the airport and is it beach front?
Unawatuna is about 160 km - 4-5 hours drive - from the airport.
Unuwatuna Beach Resort (if that is what you mean) is indeed beach front, actually it alone occupies about 1/3 of the U'tuna bay - a sign of how small the bay is. The beach continues eastward however (beyond the bay) and there too of reasonable quality.
All the best,
