10/10 Exceptional

Had a brilliant time at Cocobay over Christmas and New Year. Enjoyed it so much, we stayed some extra days. Private beach is a small piece of heaven and i swam to jungle beach (about a mile) and that was super fun too. (can get a short rickshaw ride or walk also). Food was great, Sri Lankan or international cuisine available. Stayed in two different rooms and both great, clean and with sea and palm tree views. Going to Unawatuna which is great but always happy to come back. Special thanks to Pradeep, Dilan and Dinesha and the whole team for making our stay so good.

Great little find
This is a lvoely hotel, nocer than oics may suggest. Its pretty small, so staff get to know you and are very friendly. Not a lot in immediate vicinity, but Galle fort and Unawatuna town are a very short tuk tuk ride away. Beach and rooms all have amazing views across the bay to Galle Fort - sundown cocktails are a highlight here
