If you have a few bucks left as traveller you need to go there! But avoid it when you travel on budget since it's a little costy... ...but it's worth every dollar in the end! Very good/clean cabanas, superb beds, a swimming pool, a beach right next to it (close to no tourists -> the complete opposite to i.e. Hikka)... More

We did not like the hotel we were staying at so decided to get a tuk-tuk to Rekawa. We stopped at Golden Coconut and found they had a room. It was slightly out of season so that must have helped us. I think they are usually very busy. The pool was lovely and the food was great. Our room was... More

At first we thought we might not be able to fill 4 days here since Golden Coconut is 9 km from Tangalle on a lonely beach but the days went past flying as we simply enjoyed extended walks and sitting by the pool! The pool is a big bonus as the waves are quite high in this area most of... More

We spent a fantastic 5 nights at the Golden Coconut and truly loved the Guesthouse, its owners Karin and Georg, the setting and surroundings as well as everything related to it! The Guesthouse is located right at the romantic, lonely beach of Rekawa which makes this place a unique experience. Karin and Georg are so loving and caring for their... More

We read the reviews before we left to Sri lanka and had a lottle headache for choosing this place. So we went there with the idea this was not what we would expect to have during our holiday. We were so wrong!!! This place is so beautiful,nice,clean and friendly, we would really love to go there again. We, and our... More

We received a confirmed mail booking from German owner Karin, reconfirmed our booking by mail the week before our arrival and phoned her in Sri Lanka a few days before our arrival to assure that all was ok. We were not welcomed by Karin with a smile or a drink (as we were used to in all other accomodations in... More

We didn't get a chance to stay at this place having had our 3 day reservation cancelled on us in favour of a 3 week booking from someone else! Based on the booking experience and attitude of the owner I would not recommend staying here. It may be a 'little bit of paradise' but you never get a second chance... More

My son and I came across Golden Coconut by accident, when a local from the area whom we met in Tissa told us about it. We couldn't find out any other information, but we took a chance, hopped a bus and a tuktuk in Ranna and found this beautiful small hotel right on the beach. Rooms are lovely, pool is... More
