We successfully made it from Switzerland to Sri Lanka, 2 and a half weeks ago. Zurich - Dubai - Colombo with Emirates and it was pretty easy and comfortable. In Dubai, we had all the documents checked and I was super happy that I had printed out everything just before leaving - as clearly advised by Yohan Pereira in the flight confirmation email. Thanks again Yohan Pereira for your great support and help during this preparation time. We will contact your Agency, XXXX, also for future bookings. Many thanks also to Ajeet xxx for the useful information concerning the travel. Once in Colombo we had to wait around 2h for the immigration procedure. Our driver, sent by our hotel, was waiting for us at the airport, inside the hall, he picked up our luggage, put everything in the van and we left then for Unawatuna. We checked in at Cocobay, Unawatuna, where the mediacal staff was already waiting for the 1st PCR. The Cocobay is a super nice hotel, directly on the beach, with great service, super good food, excellent rooms with view of the ocean, very nice owners and great staff. We kept some distance from guests and staff at the beginning, but once we got the results of the 2nd negative PCR test (carefully scheduled by the hotel every time) we were more relaxed and enjoyed it a lot with a couple of people, who have now become friends. My husband turned 50 a couple of days ago and the hotel staff organized a great beach party for the few of us, with excellent decorations, BBQ, cake, flowers, music and fireworks. We highly recommend the Cocobay, Unawatuna because, even with all precautions of the pandemic, they have made our stay really magic. Contact Dinesha Xxxx, very professional help desk employee, and she will help you through the whole procedure of hotel booking. Today, after 13 nights and 14 days and 3 negative PCR Tests we have just got out from our beautiful paradise "jail" 😍 and got home in Galle, where we will spend the next couple of months. Our daughter is attended at school on Monday and she can't wait to see all her teachers and classmates. This is the story of the past couple of weeks that I wanted to share with you and, I repeat it again, with all the precautions of the moment, we had a great time in this beautiful environment! If you have any questions, I will be happy to reply and help you as much as I can. Sri Lanka in our ❤️❤️❤️

Actually that was amazing arrangement, my hubby was really surprised and I am so happy.Our table arrangements and the dining area decorated so nicely and also we got a complimentary birthday cake to celebrate my hubby’s birthday which was really good. We stayed in the ‘Grande Riviera suite’. Which was very spacious and had a private jacuzzi in the balcony over looking the ocean.Facilities of the suite was very luxurious. The hotel restaurant was clean and sanitized.The hotel staff were very friendly and the service was great.The hotel staff were followed Covid 19 guide lines.

I had stayed at Cocobay with my family on October 3rd and 4th. The staff was excellent. Very friendly and welcoming. Never hesitated to provide us with anything we required. Menus had a good variety and the food was excellent. Hats off to the chef!! The rooms were spacious cozy and exceeded our expectations. We also got a complimentary birthday cake to celebrate my niece's bday which was really good. All in all a fantastic experience. Will recommend to all and waiting to go back again soon. Thank you Cocobay for a wonderful weekend. 😄😄

We were there Half board on a weekend and the hotel was almost houseful. CocoBay took strict health and safety measures but they made sure that our stay is comfortable. Food was delicious and the small stretch of private beach is a great spot for a snap.
