Illusion Cove. Yes, it is that close to the ocean.


 

Open all year, Illusion Cove is a boutique hotel positioned on a dreamy, secluded little waterfront cove in Ahangama. Hidden from the road, the beach is dotted with palm trees, and there is a nice easy wave right out front. Right there! We can walk to it, what a treat.

 

In fact, if the hotel was any closer to the ocean, it’d be a boat.

The seven rooms are all sea-facing, simple yet stylishly presented and we have an on-site cafe, bar & restaurant and all with a sea view. You get too hot, hop in the sea. You get too lazy, jump in the sea. You get bored with your friends, plop in the sea.

If you stayed with us pre-Covid – someone has to come up with a better name for the halcyon years of pre-2020, best idea wins a coconut – you’ll notice that we’re doing things a little differently now.

At Illusion Cove, instead of all-inclusive retreats we’re taking a super flexible approach. This means we’ll simply charge you a flat rate per room for bed & breakfast, with a two night minimum. You’ll be able to get lunch and dinner at our waterfront cafe & bar or be free to explore the many tasty delights the area has to offer. We might even join you.

And of course, our surf, yoga and massage sessions are available to add as extras day by day, or save money on pre-paid activities, so that you can do as much or as little as you’d like.

Our 'Really Nice' Room.


The Accommodation

It’s unusual to be on this part of the coast without being wedged in next to the busy coast road. But that’s definitely not the case here - we are set away from the road, tucked into a tropical paradise cove. We’ve got great beaches for swimming or surfing within minutes and our own little beach bay – with an easy, rolling wave out front shared with just a few others.

Your stay here is bed & breakfast, you can then choose what else to add. As much surf, yoga, massage, food and drinks as you want are all on tap.


The Rooms

We have three levels of rooms, at three different rates, all with a sea view. Quite Nice, Nice and Really Nice. They are simple, modern and comfortable with some stylish touches, most with AC, and all with that – did we mention it? – million dollar view.

There is also an on-site cafe, bar & restaurant, and an open-sided lounge on the shoreline.

And did we mention the view?
