Designated prayer facilities at Hundungoda Tea Estate will not be available for Muslim visitors but it is possible to request for a private area to make use of during prayer times. Finding a mosque in Unawatuna can also be difficult and Muslim travellers who wish to visit a mosque will need to go to some of the mosques in Galle – such as the Meera Mosque at the Galle Fort – which are located not too far away.
Though Halal food in Unawatuna is relatively difficult to find, there are a few Muslim-owned resorts that serve Halal food. For more dining options, Muslim travellers can visit some of the prominent Halal restaurants in Galle such as the Crêpe-ology Restaurant and the Indian Hut which are both located within the Galle Fort.
