Have been here twice the last couple of months and I have to say: brilliant accommodation! The rooms are very clean and every room has it's own charme. Beautiful scenery directly located at the lagoon, you can have breakfast and dinner on a higher platform just above the river. Only little walk (3 mins) to the Beach and it's definitely... More

Had an awesome stay at the coconut island! Staff was really friendly, the Cook was amazing (what a curry!), dad-cat is the Best cat ever, canoes are available which is a nice way of Exploring the lagoon. Also the beach right next to the cabañas are definetly the Best beach in Tangalle area.

Had an absolutely lovely visit here. The cabanas are really well spaced out and so you feel really separate from everyone else. The room itself was great, with a lovely bathroom. There is lots of wildlife there which was great and we saw various lizards and a frog on the walls in our room. The hotel also served some great... More

Situated 200m from the ocean, the location is great, the cabanas are clean and the kitchen is very good. Gayan is responsible and a nice person. He can arrange for you to tour Sri Lanka by chauffeur driven car or take you anywhere by tuk-tuk. You can even rent a kayak.....

Before I start I just want to say that I work in the online travel marketing industry, so I know mistakes can happen, but I've never been treated with such disrespect and made to feel such humiliation.

We stayed there for 6 nights and I can truly recommend. All cabanas were clean, cosy and enough spacious. Food was delicious - we tried breakfasts, rice and curry, fried rice, prawns and tuna fish and all tasted great. Boys who cook are polite and able to fulfil your demands (like spicy/not spicy). Gayan who owns the place is one... More

We stayed 4 nights in a clean and comfortable but simple room. Nice breakfasts and dinners were also good, (particularly the whole grilled fish). The owner and staff were friendly and helpful. The highlight for us was the location;in a pretty coconut and flower garden (that is being improved all the time) right beside the lagoon. Eating or drinking on... More

“All rooms are really nice. Great privacy and with a beautiful view to the lagoon. Be aware, that if you are a light sleeper, it could be an idea to choose the 1st floor room as we had (some really cute) dogs hanging out and barking quite loud, at our terrace in the ground floor, every night.”
