We are just back from an amazing 5 night stay at this hotel. It was stunning with a beautiful pool area and courtyard. Rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. Staff went out of their way to help us and meet our needs, even helping us take our daughter to hospital which was very much appreciated! Our daughter (and us)...

A great environment to relax. Absolutely loved the colonial architecture. The rooms were quite spacious and felt homely. Service and food was excellent and the staff was very helpful as well. Highly recommended!

Set just a couple of kilometres outside of Galle, this place is the perfect retreat. The renovation has been done to the highest standard and has a collection of beautiful furniture to match it. The history of the building was particularly interesting for us. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here and each meal was as good as the one...

We stayed at this hotel for only 1 night. The service from ALL the staff is really good. The rooms, restaurant, grounds are top class. Our only regret was we did not stay here longer. On our tour we stayed at 8 different hotels in various places in Sri Lanka, this was the best. It deserves to be tripadvisors #1...

We stayed one night here and the place itself is pretty nice with the colonial style buildings which presents itself nicely and with a great pool. The rooms are okay, but could just be so much more, the tiles they have used in the bathroom reminds you of the white ones used in a butchery and the cleaning is so...

Words really can't do justice to this place. The hotel set in an old ancestral home pays fitting tribute to its history while still appealing to the modern traveller. All the amenities are to a high standard and the staff are very helpful. I wish I was staying for longer. Would definitely come back again !!

I travelled with my wife last month to this truly amazing property located five minutes away from Galle Fort. Tamarind Hill has more spacious rooms can calm ambiance compared to hotels located within Galle Fort. Hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming.

We researched and researched in advance of our trip so I expected Tamarind Hill to be fantastic. It still exceeded our expectations in terms of the tranquility offered, the service, the food and the fun animal sightings (hello bunny snuggles and a peacock sighting)! There's so much new construction in Sri Lanka so to stay in a colonial property that...
