This is by far the best hotel experience we’ve had in all these years of traveling. This boutique hotel is a gem and I hope it stays that way, coz I am definitely going back to it.
We stayed 5 nights at CoCobay on our trip to Sri Lanka and we were so glad we did. The hotel is located on a private beach/cove with direct access to the sea, which runs quite shallow for the first few meters. Since it’s a small property, every guest has a fair access to the beach and the beds provided, and can enjoy enough elbow room. If you want the beds to be moved, the staff is only happy to help. We spent many a hour lazing on the beach beds, with our fantastic cocktails with intermittent bursts of sea dips!
We had chosen the Aqua Romance room which is one of the ground floor rooms with a sea view and its own private pool. We couldn’t have chosen better. Once we had our fill of the sea (which frankly is difficult), we would come back to our room and jump into the private pool…watching the sea and relaxing. The room also has a sitout infront of the pool, for those times when you just want to chill in your private cocoon.

The food at the hotel was also fabulous. There were many occasions when the chef came and spoke to us to figure out our likes and dislikes; the serving staff was also always polite and attentive. We were very happy with the general hospitality offered at the hotel.

The hotel and rooms are spotlessly clean. The AC was effective and we never had a complaint.

Overall it was a superb experience staying at CoCobay and we would stay there and recommend it to people, in a heartbeat!
