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

The nicest place in which I have ever been a guest. Great location for people interested in wildlife, which is right out the front door. Amazing food. Incredibly stylish, interesting house. Really great design.

This villa was not on the books of our travel agent in Sydney or Sri Lanka however, I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and insisted on coming here. What a wonderful place. The staff, including the cook, were delightful. The young gentleman who was the butler, waiter, cleaner and all round wonderful person could work in any 5... More

A truly wonderful retreat, close to Colombo but with water buffalo just across the road the city feels miles away. The staff are a delight, and the owner rushed back to welcome us himself. We were only there en route from the airport to Sinharaja which was a pity as i'd have liked to stay longer; the welcome was so... More
