I spent a week at Talalla and I enjoyed every single minute. It was the perfect, chilled out introduction to Sri Lanka. The rooms are open (i.e. no windows), spacious and clean. I loved the jungle sounds at night! The food was good (fresh grilled fish, lots of veggie curries, salads, hoppers etc) and there's lots of it. The staff were helpful and friendly. It's a short walk to a quiet, unspoilt beach where the sea can get lively but I was able to swim safely. The yoga and meditation was a lovely start and end to each day and such a delightful way to relax body and mind. The yoga studio is modern and open plan and has all the necessary equipment. There's an onsite spa offering a range of treatments. The deep tissue massage I had was average, perhaps because I booked the last session of the day and I'm sure her hands were due a rest!
