We just got home from 5 nights at Coco Bay. This is a fantastic hotel and is excellent value for money. We stayed in “Sea Escape” which was a large double room with stunning ocean and beach views. There’s a massive bathroom complete with a jacuzzi bath and walk in shower.
The hotel stage can’t do enough for you and are always on hand if you need anything at all. There were lots of lovely little touches for example welcome drinks, fresh flowers on the bed on a couple of nights, little cakes and fruit delivered every day and a choice of handmade soaps when you arrive. One day the staff even bought aloe vera cuttings from home for my husband because he’d got quite bad sunburn. It was just so nice to stay somewhere where the staff genuinely care about the happiness and wellbeing of their guests.
The facilities at the hotel are also very good. The private beach and pool area is beautifully kept (run very efficiently by the very friendly lifeguard!). The sun loungers are comfortable and because there’s only 12 rooms there’s a very peaceful and quiet atmosphere.
There’s free yoga a couple of times a week as well as a cooking demonstration. Galle is also very close by (it’s 5-10mins in a tuk tuk) and costs about £2 so it’s easy to get into Galle from the hotel.
We ate at the hotel most days. The breakfast is about £6 pp and includes fresh fruit, bakery basket, cooked breakfast, juice and tea/coffee. I loved that it was served until 2pm so you could relax and have a late brunch rather than being restricted to getting up and out early. So all the little details like that make a big difference. We also had a couple of evening meals at the hotel which were also very good. The South Indian curry is particularly good as it comes with about 10 different miniature dishes for you to try. There’s a private BBQ that we didn’t get chance to try but it looked amazing and we’d definitely have done that if we’d have had time. My husband also had some fantastic sea food which was really fresh and beautifully cooked.
What absolutely makes this hotel is it’s wonderful staff and spectacular setting. If you are looking for a beautiful setting this is the place for you. I’d definitely go back here if we return to Sri Lanka.
