Sri Lanka, The South Coast
Info : Coco Bay
Coco Bay is a small hotel set on one of the best beaches in Unawatuna with views of Galle Fort in the distance. This boutique hotel has a modern and relaxed vibe and is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring Unawatuna or taking in the sites of the nearby fort.
If you like nothing more than to lie on the beach and relax, Unawatuna is a great base. For all their guests, Coco Bay provides a complimentary boat ride to the neighbouring jungle beach.
All of the twelve rooms are sea facing and have jacuzzi’s and for those who really want to indulge, three of the rooms also have private pools. With a mixture of international and Sri Lankan cuisine there is something for everyone, and if you have no intention of getting up early…breakfast is served all day.
This small boutique hotel is a great option if you want the Indian Ocean right at your feet and a UNESCO world heritage site as your view.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
We hadn't opted for the luxury hotels but gone for good quality. I wonder what luxury is like because all our hotels and rooms were fantastic. All spacious and well appointed, the staff were all very helpful and friendly.
