Cantaloupe-Aqua (AQUA) was the first property under the Cantaloupe Hotels portfolio. This Unique Hotel and Beach Club unashamedly surveys an idyllic ocean scene and is the first affordable boutique hotel along this sultry stretch of Galle coastline. Neighboured by private villas and sandy beaches stretching hazily into the distance, AQUA is private, trendy and chic. Of the 13 well-appointed rooms and all 13 have stunning views of the beach through floor-to-ceiling glass windows and private furnished balconies. AQUA also features two contemporary suites, which come with a host of added luxuries including private jacuzzis. AQUA is also home to COCONUT – a fusion restaurant promoting innovative Sri Lankan and Thai cuisine – and the famous Playground Beach Bar, flaunting a diversely inspiring cocktail and wine list.

Both a calm oasis and a private party paradise, AQUA is stylish, modern and urbane – an accurate embodiment of the Cantaloupe & Co philosophy and lifestyle. Every guest is entitled to dictate the pace of his or her experience at AQUA. The vibe fluctuates with the mood of the crowd, ranging from beach club to chill out lounge. Ambient lounge and chill out music plays throughout the day to keep the AQUA atmosphere alive.

Coconut Restaurant at Cantaloupe Aqua is a feast for your senses, and the menu will tease your taste buds with a selection of Western, Asian fusion and Thai cuisine, including plenty of ocean fresh fish and seafood. Blessed with spectacular views of the turquoise ocean, this beachfront restaurant in Galle is open all day for drinking, grazing and dining. Inside, tables sit beneath colour pop photographs of Sri Lanka whilst at night tables spill onto an elevated deck, open to the skies and the sea breezes, which feels like the hull of a boat. To one end of the restaurant is an infinity plunge pool and a bar serving Galle's best cocktails, and upstairs is a deck for romantic alfresco private dining.
