Boho chic meets laid-back luxury at Coco Tangalla, a beautiful black and white colonial villa, which after extenisve refurbishment opened its doors as a boutique hotel in Tangalle, southern Sri Lanka.
Overlooking the Indian Ocean and sister property to three other Sri Lankan boutique hotels, The Last House, The Kandy House and Taylors Hill, this seaside Chic Retreat can be booked as a luxury villa in its entirety, sleeping up to 13 people, or the rooms can be booked individually.
The mix of antiques, local art and some modern pieces works very well against the tropical backdrop, vibrant colours and exotic fabrics. One guest comments "What a wonderful stay in Coco Tangalla. It should be called "Coco Paradiso" and with a variety of wildlife, cultural and heritage destinations nearby, it is perfect as a stopover to or from Galle or Yala.
There are plenty of local beaches which are great (and safe) for swimming and plenty of cultural places can be found nearby. Most guests relax by the infinity pool on the first day to unwind and take in the beauty of the surroundings. Massages can be arranged by appointment. Stay at home and enjoy the small Library of books, board games, and CDs. WiFi is available in most common areas.
Visit Yala National Park on safari which has one of the world's highest concentrations of leopards, or
Sea-lovers mustn't miss Blue Whale watching which can be organized with trips from Mirissa only 45 minutes away. A visit to Coco Tangalla wouldn't be the same without a visit to the famous town of Galle which has its own UNESCO World Heritage Site at the fort and is also great for shopping.
Foodies love traveling to Sri Lanka as they know that a stay at a boutique hotel such as Coco Tangalla is going to keep their taste buds jumping up and down with delight!
Although seafood can be a staple part of your stay by the Indian Ocean, the focus at Coco Tangalla is also on fresh and local ingredients which are bought daily.
The menus include a variety of western and Asian styles and flavours; lunches are typically two courses and dinner is three courses which might include crab, mullet, lobster or tuna or a variety of beef, chicken and vegetable curries, followed by some house favourites for pudding.
