Very pretty and nice, small hotel at the south coast near Galle. Rooms are nice and clean. Restaurant served good dishes and especially with Sandun as a waiter we had a super service and on top enjoyable small talks. Seldom, that you meet such a helpful and friendly person. But also the remaining staff had been nice. We used the...

Pros: One of the most beautiful sea/beach views in the world Access to Koggala beach which allows you to walk right the way up to the Fortress hotel with stunning sea views and palm-fringed beach. This stretch of coastline is still relatively unspoilt so you might see the odd fellow walker but beyond that, your company will be sea turtles...

Great place! Amazing ocean-view, good restaurant. Modern, clean rooms and friendly staff. 5min by TukTuk to Unawatuna-Beach (ask for SURESH across the street. Very friendly and helpful). There is another beach next to the hotel (5min walking distance).

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Cantaloupe Aqua. The hotel is located about 6 km's after Unawatuna (when coming from Colombo). It doesn't have a beach, however the hotel is located right on the waterfront, so the water is literally right below the rooms (quite noisy if you're sensitive). There is a small pool, a nice terrace...

Me and my partner stayed for three nights at Aqua, february 2017. It is a peaceful and beautiful spot with good sized bedrooms. It s a small hotel, just around 12 - 13 room. The staff held a hight standard, they are personal without getting private. Jayashanthi is a star among them. Dinner at the terrace is like heaven !...

Staying at this small, boutique hotel perched at the edge of the sea has been so wonderful. The staff are fantastic, the food amazing and the rooms clean and comfortable. Please note the pool is small, just a plunge pool really, but with only 13 rooms at the hotel, there was always an opportunity to cool off without sharing. This...

Quiet location on the shore. Grown up people and no noise. Wonderful staff and a great thanks to Lalith , the front desk manager for all the help he gave us. The restaurant was perfect with a great breakfast, lunch and supper. All in all a place we give the best recommendations.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Cantaloupe AQUA, our private hotel and beach club. AQUA again has been awarded the Trip Advisor 'Certificate of Excellence'for for 6 consecutive years. Cantaloupe Aqua is a 15 room affordable seafront boutique hotel style in Unawatuna (Galle) Sri Lanka. The concept of the hotel is inspired by famous beach clubs around the world; it's the only one of its kind in Sri Lanka. AQUA combines contemporary spaces, amazing music, and food to create the ultimate beach getaway. "Dine where the action is infinity poolside, beach side, indoors, outdoors, under the stars, on a deck or on the beach!" AQUA offers you numerous options and spaces to wine, dine, lounge, party or just chill! 'Due to unforeseeable circumstances, Cantaloupe Aqua being primarily a beach front property has encountered difficulties providing guests with direct beach access in front of the property depending on the time of year and the seasonal weather changes. Due to man made structures built into the sea on the coastal line and global warming, which has caused inconsistent patterns of sand deposits. Sea erosion has caused Aqua to lose it's beach during some months of the year. In the event the beach is inaccessible our front desk staff will be more than happy to offer you complimentary transport to the closest beach on the right hand side of the property, which is also accessible by a 10 minute walk' - Management ... more   less
