Cocoon Resort and Villas

Lapped in a picturesque landscape in the idyllic Southern town of Induruwa, Bentota is ‘Cocoon Resort and Villas’, a paradise bathed in sunshine. The resort is tucked away in a place of tranquillity that is enfolded in profuse greenery, approximately 85 KM away from the rush and whisk of Colombo.

Best Known For

The 8 ½ acre landscape where ‘Cocoon Resort and Villas’ unfolds a world of luxury is fondly called ‘Sumanagiri’ or ‘the land of silent Mount’ as an expression of love for the nearby serene hill. Old architecture interflows into fashionable tones of modern facilities while the sweeping gardens stir into being through its quaint stillness.

The Experience

3 exclusive Grand Villas, 7 Luxury Villas and 16 Silk Rooms materialize from the beautifully-kept gardens. Glimpses of Cinnamon spice up the beauty of the landscape. The Grand Villas are furnished with a private pool that comes with a romantic seating area, king size bed, living room and a patio. The Extravagant Villas overlook the forest and are kitted out with a private terrace equipped with a Jacuzzi. The Luxury Villas enjoy views of the garden and the woodlands beyond and are fitted out with a Jacuzzi in the bathroom. The Silk Suites include either a balcony or a terrace, and feature a Jacuzzi in the en suite bathroom. Lavish king size beds are available in all accommodation types.

Homegrown goodness, traditional downhome cooking styles and catch of the day are dining highlights at ‘Cocoon Resort and Villas’. The Spanish style sit out of ‘Garden Wadiya’ is ideal for an intimate dining in the gushing moonlight. Bask in the frizzle of a barbeque on your terrace or the garden as a chef takes charge of the grill. Glory in a delicious high tea at the ‘Tea & Tea House’ where Ceylon tea makes delightful swirls in porcelain cups and scrumptious savouries crowd onto lovely plates.

In the deeps of the tranquil garden is ‘The Bath’, the in house spa of ‘Cocoon Resort and Villas’. Ayurvedic wisdom of yore and time-honoured beauty secrets of Asia come to life amidst subtle and deep aromas of herbs and oils at this spa fragranced by ‘araliya’, ‘nelum’ and ‘rose’ flowers.

‘The Stage’ is the centre for cultural dances and folk music. Tune in to the dream-like music of ‘bata nala’ which is the local version of flute or feast your eyes on a Kandyan dance where dancers spin and spring vibrantly to the celestial music of traditional drums.

When you are feeling sporty, challenge yourself with badminton or table tennis; or burn some calories at the gym. ‘Cocoon Resort and Villas’ is also equipped with a children’s playground to keep your kids entertained and happy.

Around and About

Go behind the scenes of local Toddy production, a unique brew savoured by many. Delve into the astounding as daring collectors shuffle between tall coconut palms on ropes, a highly risky livelihood passed on from generation to generation. For the inquisitive few, follow them home and learn the incredible arts and techniques which will turn the secretion into a fantastic brew. Head over to the Induruwa Beach on a moonlit night to espy the delicate turtles that surreptitiously steal to the beach to lay eggs.

8 KM away from the laid-back village of Induruwa, the scenic picture of Bentota flows into the costal landscape. Lovingly christened the ‘water sports capital’ of Sri Lanka, the character of Bentota is flavoured with surfing, skiing and windsurfing. Partake in a boat ride in the Madu Ganga River of Balapitiya which will mesmerize you with a lavish of aquatic life and birds; stop by and dip in the essence of tiny islands which still pay tribute to the traditional life styles and rituals. Take in the beauty of the Bentota Lagoon from a faded paint catamaran that idles down to the prolific world of mangroves.

Remember to make an excursion to the historical city of Galle amidst whose old streets colonial landmarks loom out; the quiet, artistic town of Ambalangoda where colourful batiks rustle along the streets, pieces of wood are whittled into vibrant masks and puppet shows take the stage; the alluring town of Hikkaduwa whose corals, shipwrecks, mangroves and nightlife set the scene for endless summer dreams.

The elfin twilight drops into the dreamy ocean of Induruwa. The world goes still except for the eternal susurration of the cream-tipped waves. Along the beach that has turned into a pavement of pearl in the moon shine, you walk home to the lap of luxury, ‘Cocoon Resort and Villas’.
