where to stay?

I need your opinions please - where to stay AVANI BENTOTA RESORT or COCOON RESORT AND VILLAS?

Please also recommend where to go (excursions) nearby.

Thanks.

Hi there,

If the price is similar: Avani. Big advantage here next to its quality is that you can book BB and eat out in the restaurants and bars around at a decent price every evening. Cocoon calls itself Bentota but that's Ryanair-lile map usage, it's in Kosgoda which is 45 mins down south; has no restaurants around so you must book halfboard for eating in the resort every night....

See

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c122197/Sri-L…

for possible trips from both.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Cocoon Resort and Villas is in Induruwa - approx. half way between Bentota and Kosgoda. Cocoon Sea Resort is in Kosgoda.
