Me and my partner absolutely loved our stay in this historic building. The rooms are amazing and please ignore the negative comments I read in regards to the bathroom being hot, all you have to do is leave the door open and it will cool down ....a non issue if I've ever read one. The staff were simply amazing and... More

Wonderful hotel - with fantastic hospitality. Service impeccable - especially Mr. Glayan who was very helpful. We stayed for 4 nights - a retreat from the bustle of the city. Rabbits playing in the courtyard (plus 5 new born baby rabbits) and peacocks in the morning added to the ambience and pleasure of the place. Highly recommended.

We received a warm welcome and a tour of the grand colonial hotel from Samith. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. A beautiful pool backs onto jungle with monkeys gathering fruit visible from the water. A beautiful getaway from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommended!

I have just returned from a trip to Sri Lanka and was lucky enough to stay one night at Tamarind Hill. The property is a beautiful colonial building surrounding a grass courtyard complete with nibbling pet rabbit. It felt like an oasis of calm tucked away from the busy Galle Road. We stayed in Room 4, and although not one... More

In this colonial styled Hotel, you will find the best of traditional architecture, deco and materials combined with a top Service and extremely modern facilities. It is a jewel among Galle's Hotels. One can say it is a sustainable architecture among an old premise, with a Swimming pool that is really well integrated in the natural Environment.
