    This new 12 room boutique hotel itself is nestled in its own private bay and the beach is 'manicured' by the hotel staff.

    We went to nearby Unawantuna beach one day and found it touristy and crowded. We couldn't wait to get back to the beach at Coco Bay.

    Everything about this place was excellent - the half board option was superb and the 5 course set evening menu changed daily. I had filet steak and chicken which was as good as anywhere I have tasted. There was a free yoga class daily at 1700 which was a great way to make space for the evening food !

    The rooms are superb and all have an outside area - the ground floor units open onto a shared plunge pool. There is also a main pool for all to use.

    Free wi-fi is a refreshing change to the normal 'charged' rip off at many hotels.

    The hotel is run by an experienced manager and with a keen daily interest from the owner, you would be hard pressed to find a better attitude towards customer service. Hand picked staff are also a great asset to the hotel.

    The hotel is a short (400 Rupiah) ride from the old walled town of Galle which has some neat coffee shops. I would highly recommend a trip to the nearby white tea plantation which the hotel reception can fix up for you.

    In summary, I really can't enthuse about this place too much. It really was fantastic and I would have no hesitation in going back for a super relaxing holiday.

    Room Tip: rooms to the right have a better view of the ocean.

    We stayed at Coco bay Resort for three nights at the end of our two weeks in Sri Lanka. The service and the staff were amazing. Rowena on the front desk, the hotel manager and all of the bar / restaurant staff were so lovely and friendly but most of so attentive.
    The small touches here is what makes this place so good. We were shown our room - of which is AMAZING - and we were given a soap selection service. The staff member had a tray of handmade soaps and we choose two that we wanted and he choped them off from a large slab like it was a cheese board. We were given small frozen deserts poolside at the hottest time of the day. The food here was so delicious - must do the BBQ lobster and the BBQ prawns.
    My only negative is that the photos on the website and here show computer design drawings and i expected the pool to be as big as it was and a little more private from the diners in the restaurant than it is. In saying this it bears no consequence on my choice to return or to recommend it highly to any one of my friends. We absolutley loved our time here and wished we stayed an extra night instead of the two we stayed in colombo.
    Thanks guys and good luck!

    Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful and have a view - at this stage there are only 12 rooms in the hotel.

    I had dinner for 2 days at this hotel. The hotel is located at a wonderful peaceful location in roomassala, just near to the entrance of the highway, and very close to the Galle city. The hotel has a very relaxing and romantic atmosphere, because of the isolated beach area. The beach front and dinner area is an ideal place for dining, over business discussion or for romance. Hotel staffs are well trained and very polite. I did not get reservation at this hotel as the hotel was fully booked. This is one of the few place, I want to go back.

    Room Tip: Ocean privilege room

    We spent 4 nights last week, including a staying @ aqua romance (marvelous). The hotel is brand new with a lot of charme and ambiance, but also super cool from a design perspective. At night the dinner on the terrace in front of the beach is an unforgettable experience and the distance to unawatuna beach is only 5 min with a tuk tuk ride. the hotel offer a free trip with private boat every morning to the close jungle beach, which i suggest to take as the beach in front of the hotel is not so beautiful. During my stay the best beach visited was the one at Abaraduwa (15 minutes ride with tuk tuk), while a visit to the close Galle city is to be considered (do not go at night as all shops are closed).

    Room Tip: rooms are all the same but aqua romance rooms are better as they are the only ones @ ground floor level with direct access to the beach (unfortunately the privacy of the private swimming poll can be improved) and have a big patio. take care of mosquitos.

    I was there for the Coco Bay Hotel (Unawatuna) opening celebrations. The location is fantastic, a peaceful atmosphere with view on the Indian ocean. Spacious room, excellent Sri Lankan food. No doubt, my hotel for my next travel in Sri Lanka.
