When it comes to hotels, resorts and villas I’m the biggest fan. In fact, I’m more excited to find out what they offer than the actual trip itself. So whenever I hear about a fabulous hotel, I want to check it out and see what it offers us travelers. That being said, let me introduce you to a fabulous new hotel in Galle, Sri Lanka that has made waves over the past few months – Cantaloupe Aqua. I would describe this tranquil hotel in Galle by saying it is a stylish hotel with a vibe of calm oasis filled with aquamarine. Best of all, it is very close to Unawatuwa beach – one of the best beaches in down-south Sri Lanka and a mere 20 minutes drive from Galle Fort – the number one attraction in Galle.
