Cantaloupe Aqua Galle

Our Category: Superior   |   Regional Category: Mid-range Boutique Hotel

Minimalist white with quirky details like giant urns and Warhol-style pictures, the Canteloupe Aqua is a funky Greek style hotel. All rooms have their own distinct character and have stunning beach frontage. The beds are luxurious and King size and work perfectly with the white wooden floors. The hotel has a wonderful Thai restaurant - head down there for a yummy Jungle Curry or Pad Thai. The accommodation is perfectly located on a private beach in Unawatuna - close to the city of Galle.

Jetwing Lighthouse Galle

Our Category: Deluxe   |   Regional Category: 5 Star Hotel

Famed as the last architectural triumph of iconic genius Geoffrey Bawa, the Jetwing Lighthouse sits on a rugged outcrop along the coastline of Galle. Guest rooms meet the highest standards and are furnished in a traditional Dutch style with polished teak floors. Boasting a whole host of charming cafes and restaurants you will not go hungry staying here. Guests can start the day with a splash in the pool and end it with a seafood feast at the delightful Cinnamon Room. The accommodation is perfectly located on the outskirts of the city.
