Era Beach Hotel

Boutique hotel in Thalpe & Koggala

This is a small boutique hotel, where wood and stone combine to create a Zen-like sense of happiness (the ocean-side setting, coconut-tree-studded lawn and gorgeous pool help out with this, too). However, some of the spacious rooms, with four-posters and polished wood floors, catch a little road noise, and the shore here is rocky – there are fine sands a short walk away.
