We booked Coco for the last 2 nights of our 3 week trip to Sri Lanka as a treat and that's exactly what it was. It is a beautifully simple colonial house with white walls, pale polished concrete floors throughout with very simple yet elegant furnishings. It's difficult to find fault with this place. The uber comfortable daybeds beside the restaurant look out over the azure pool (which was very warm due to the sun being on it all day) and the gardens leading down to the beach, which is the perfect place to relax day or night and have the gentle breeze and sounds of the waves to listen to. It was made all the more special by the fact we had it all to ourselves and it was just so peaceful - we actually want to live there!!!!!!!!!!! The food prepared for us was delicious the staff were very attentive without being intrusive. I could quite happily have spent more time there. It's also a 10 minute stroll into town if you need anything or just want to stretch your legs. A truly gorgeous place.
