Coco Tangalla, Sri Lanka

Looking for a beach house overlooking the ocean where you can hole up for a week without being disturbed, except by the very important delivery of daily breakfast?  Or a very private place to stay where you can suddenly decide you do want dinner after all?  A house that's exclusively yours with enough room for two families or ten friends - friends and families that want everything from birdwatching to bodysurfing and temples filled with Buddhist chants?

Coco Tangalla has got the lot and if it's not on the doorstep they'll arrange a car and driver to take you to your idea of holiday pursuit heaven.
