Hotel has 15 rooms and it is located not far away from Unawatuna. Note that to go to the town you have to use transportation (tuk-tuk, local bus or private taxi. No shuttle bus is provided!). Some of the tuk-tuk people who are around the hotel are a bit annoying as they will insist you to go with them. Indeed... More

A gorgeous modern boutique hotel situated in a quiet location with its own beach. Beautiful palm trees spread out over the pool and on to the beach which makes this a picuresque location good for couples and familes. The food served in the restaurant is a mix of thai arabic sri lankan and western and it was delicious. The staff... More

The chef catered... More

My Fiancé and I visited Cantaloupe Aqua in April 2014. We absolutely enjoyed our stay there. The rooms were comfortable clean and modern. The customer service was excellent. We were well looked after by "Maneel" one of the managers who was there during our 3 day stay. The food is fresh modern fusion. Try their fantastic thai food with a... More

We went for Dinner, it was amazing, just by the beach in Habaraduwa, the service is excellent, the food was nice, and we enjoyed the drinks by the sea, great view of the indian ocean, very friendly staff, and food is all on international standard, you will find a variety of thai food in the Menu too.

Our visit to the cantaloupe aqua was excellent. It is a small boutique hotel right on the beach where we were made to feel very welcome, the room is huge and cleaned while we had breakfast at the open air restaurant, proper bacon and eggs were on the menu, and again while we had dinner the room was swept and...

I've been to a quite a lot of beach hotels down south but theres something to this place that deviates it from the others completely. I'm not sure whether its the ambiance or the white interior with bright colored accessories or simply the Andy Warhol inspired pop arts all over, probably the whole package. & oh yeah not forgetting the...

This was a great beuatique hotel where we stayed for one night on our tour of sri lanka. Overall my wife and I really enjoyed the fact that it was so different, but it wasn't really right for the family. We got the impression that they really were not that geared up for children. The set menu we had (we... More

We chose Cantaloupe to get married in recently and everything was perfect. We stayed in the 'Ultra Chic' suite, lovely big room with a jacuzzi overlooking the sea. As it was our wedding/honeymoon, the h/k staff put rose petals in the bedroom at night. It's lovely to go to sleep listening to the waves hit the beach outside. Over the... More
