Why Choose Cantaloupe Levels for Your Stay in South Sri Lanka

by | Mar 21, 2019


Perched high on Rumassala’s serene headland, close to Unawatuna, Cantaloupe Levels is a modern boutique hotel that offers stylish accommodation and romantic views of the Indian Ocean, angled towards the historic Galle Fort. Interiors of this hotel are of bright white modern designs mixed with a classic baroque touch where a bold color palate is placed alongside pop art and gothic chandeliers. Slightly downhill from Cantaloupe Levels is the isolated Jungle Beach which is peaceful and swim safe during the months from November to April. The service vibe of ‘nothing is too much trouble’ is a much appreciated attitude, thanks to a young, forward-thinking owner at Cantaloupe Levels.

Convenient location…

The hilltop residence of Cantaloupe Levels is a few minutes’ drive from the popular heritage site in Galle. A winding uphill road with panoramic views of the historical Dutch Fort will take you to the hotel. Unawatuna is about one and a half hours from Colombo and is the perfect location to base yourself when touring the southern coast of Sri Lanka.

Offering unique styles…

For those who’ve had enough of those colonial style accommodation, the modern design at Cantaloupe Levels is a fresh and appreciated change. Original presentations and hi-tech bells and whistles are admirable for a reasonably priced independent hotel of this size. While some guests may find the white upholstery, large metallic headboards and colorful chandeliers slightly flashy, it is ideal to suit fans of Nikki Beach and the surf vibe in Unawatuna.

Voluntarily Exclusive Service…

The hotel is designed in various levels of grass rectangles, and has a stunning infinity pool with lovely double loungers popular with every guest at the end of their stay at Cantaloupe Levels. The Bliss Spa has a good reputation for in-room beauty and massage treatments.

Moreover, this small hotel offers big ideas and has 24/7 caretaker services. An interesting activity is to join the chef during his visits to Galle’s colorful food market to shop for ingredients, along with a cookery tutorial at the hotel. The staff at Cantaloupe Levels try as much as they can to add a personal touch to your stay. Don’t be surprised if a caretaker comes to you with freshly plucked aloe-vera for your skin while you relax under the tropical sun to tan your body.

Apart from this, the beach has a well-equipped bar, laundry facilities are available at the hotel along with room service and free internet access.

Modern accommodation…

The competitive edge apparent at the air conditioned contemporary style rooms at Cantaloupe Levels are the massive – floor-to-ceiling windows that allow to make maximum use of the hotel’s hilltop location. From the comfort of your room, the 250-degree jaw-dropping panoramas are particularly appreciated at sunset. In terms of luxury, the hotel offers glossy spaces, mod air conditions, huge LED screen televisions, well stocked minibars and tubs with whirlpool facilities. The in-room amenities are also on par with five-star standards and the en-suite bathrooms are a stunner!

Multi-cuisine food…

Asian-fusion is a common cuisine at the restaurant, blending well with the contemporary atmosphere at the hotel. An ambitious menu including sushi and sashimi is also available for poolside cravings. Breakfast is an array of choices ranging from the best of American style and a parade of Sri Lankan indulges. Local dishes such as string hoppers and king coconut water are absolutely authentic and cannot be topped with any other cuisine for quality and flavor. Dine outdoors on the terrace, under the moonlit sky, kissed by the sea-breeze on days when the weather is slightly cooling.
