My husband and I stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon and it was just perfect. We arrived after a long flight from London and were greeted with cool refreshing lemon flannels, a fresh juice and a beautiful garland of frangipani. In our room was a bottle of sparkling wine and fresh petals on the bed. The room... More

My wife & I stayed just one night at Villa Talangama on the final day of our 3 week Cultural ,Birding & Wildlife tour of Sri Lanka with A. Baur Travel. This hotel overlooking a peaceful lake(so-called 'Tank') on the outskirts of Colombo allows only one family/couple to stay at a time and offers wonderful personal service in fabulous surroundings....

We stayed in Villa Talangama for just one night before departing from Sri Lanka. How we wished that we were there for longer. It is a delightful place to stay. The welcome we received was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble for the attentive and kind staff. The rooms and facilities were excellent and the general ambience was relaxed,... More

We endorse all the other reviews that this is a very special place to stay. We were fortunate enough to spend the last night of our stay in Sri Lanka here and as they only take one party at a time, we had it to ourselves. We were looked after like special family guests and the food, ambience, service, comfort... More

We stayed just one night in this lovely place and wish we could have stayed more. It was calm, beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and homely at the same time. Mr De Silva, the owner was there to welcome us and both he and the staff couldn't have been kinder and more helpful. It was the perfect place to stay before... More

After having experienced the rigours of long-haul travel what you ideally need is to relax in gentle comfort. Villa Talangama provided that for us in all ways possible. The accommodation was welcoming and comfortable in the way that only a family home could be. Every need that we might have was catered for; the food was delicious especially the traditional... More

When you read the reviews for Villa Talangama you think that they all cannot be true - but take it from us they are. This is a truly magnificent place if you are looking for quiet, to be indulged and to decide what you want to eat and when you want to eat it. Read the reviews they are all... More

Having researched numerous villas in the Colombo area before booking, we selected Villa Talangama primarily because of the positive reviews which we had read. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived, and throughout our seven day stay, the entire experience was wonderful. As I write this review we are still in Sri Lanka- we are here to attend... More

Our second visit and still the wow factor. Quick to get to from the airport, even quicker later in the year when the rest of the highway avoiding Colombo will be finished. A beautiful private villa all to yourselves with fantastic home cooked food (tamed for our palette), gorgeous garden area with spotless pool... an excellent way to start or... More
