Coco Tangalla is a simple but very comfortable boutique hotel located in the popular seaside resort of Tangalle on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Although the hotel is located on the main road, it does offer a sense of peace away from the busier parts of the town and it’s right on the beach, surrounded by small but well-manicured gardens. The property belongs to the Manor House Concepts portfolio and features an eclectic mix of modern and traditional design features, with a vibrant array of colours, materials and local artwork lending it plenty of character and warmth.

There are six rooms in total. The main building houses four rooms and the remaining two are set in a separate, adjacent building. All rooms are spacious, with plenty of creature comforts, and each one is individually decorated and named. The list of amenities varies from room to room, though they all have air conditioning and complimentary toiletries; some come with their own private balcony.

On-site facilities include a lovely infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean, as well as the dining area in the garden pavilion with delightful sea views. Varied breakfasts, two course lunches and three course dinners are on offer, incorporating both Sri Lankan and western cuisine and plenty of seafood. Though the food is certainly appealing, it’s also easy to venture into town to dine in some of the restaurants there. While the hotel doesn’t have its own spa facilities, in-room massages can be arranged and there’s also a peaceful ‘ambalama’, a designated place for rest complete with books, CD’s and a lounge with ocean views.

There’s plenty to do within easy reach of the hotel. The Yala National Park, known for its abundant leopard population, is a particularly popular destination, and there’s a great deal to explore along the South Coast with its picturesque beaches that are good for water sports and soaking up the sun, along with scores of charming settlements that are rich in local culture and traditions.

The hotel welcomes children aged eight or above. All of the bedrooms can be booked out together on an exclusive basis which makes it a great choice for families or larger groups, and the two bedrooms away from the main building interconnect via a short passageway. Note that swimming in the sea directly outside the hotel isn’t recommended, but there is a suitable beach for swimming within walking distance.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
