The pictures of this STUNNING colonial villa do not do it justice it is even more beautifull in reality and with only 12 rooms the proportions and grandeur of the rooms has not been compromised and all original features preserved with fully modern facilities The staff are incredibly attentive ,helpful but discreet.The foodis deliscous and covers all tastes from authentic curries to modern western delights WE STAYED EXTRA NIGHTS EVEN THOUGH WE WERE RENTING A VILLA 10 MINUTES AWAY.So thank you all the staff for making our first trip back to Sri Lanka for years post covid so easy as we have been coming for3 months a year for 25 years WILL WE BACK to this Delight of a Hotel ! %100 SO Thank You to the guys Sanjaya, Sangeeth, Senaiath, Chefs Vinod ,Rasika and Laxmal and of course managers Nanejo and Nihal and not forgetting Nissanic and Jeewan for keeping our room immaculate!

The hospitality of this place gives you a sneak peak into centuries old royalty.. the staff is more than welcoming with a perfect balance of professionalism and personalization where appropriate. The fact that this country is highly dependable on tourism is reflected in the deeply ingrained and well-manifested mannerism of every staff member, from housekeeping to kitchen to security to behind-the-scene employees to the management. Not a minute of dissatisfaction here! Comfort at its best.. Thanks to Sangeet and Sanjay... Our stay was a bliss and we could not have chosen a better place to spend our quarantine in... Their presence and hospitality made our quarantine worthwhile!

Tamarind Hill takes you to a time when Sri Lanka was a dutch colony. The architecture and decor has been meticulously planned and the rooms and bath are spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly and the dining experience has been very satisfactory. The Crayford Rooms come with their own garden space - perfect for a lazy lunch in privacy. The lobby and common area boast a beautiful furniture setting. Its not far away from the Galle Fort. I highly recommend it.

Quarantine at Tamamrind Hill. I arrived at Tamarind Hill on September 8th 2021, for 1 night with my 3 small daughters, after flying in to Sri Lanka from Los Angeles. The current COVID19 rules state that I need to stay at a Level 1 hotel and get a PCR test before I can enter Sri Lanka. Tamarind Hill is a beautiful 'walauwa' that has been renovated and now serves as a hotel. Being a Sri Lankan, arriving here felt like I was coming 'home'. All the old world charm and character of my 'achchis house' met with modern amenities of a luxury hotel. We were not allowed to leave our room until we got the results of the pcr test. But our room was clean and comfortable and really quite 'spa' like, that we didn't feel 'trapped' inside or claustrophobic in anyway. The room itself is enormous, as is the bathroom. There was also a private patio. The pictures I have don't do justice to this beautiful place. However, one can go to the best most modern places in the world, and yet, it's the people you meet that will make your experience good or bad. Upon arrival, Senarath greeted us, professional and kind. Answering all my questions and offering any help whenever her could. Additionally, during my stay I met Sanjaya and Sangeeth who also went out of their way, to make my stay the best it could be. The food created by Chef Lakmal was amazing. Western food and Sri Lankan cuisine, whatever we wanted, made to order, specially for us. My picky eater kids couldn't get enough of his scrambled eggs, pastas and fresh made juice. I had my first kotthu roti in over 8 years. And it was excellent. We also met the Head of Housekeeping after we got our negative pcr tests, and he gave a small tour of this remarkable place. While I'm sure they are all trained in hospitality, these people epitomize what I love about Sri Lanka: The kindness and friendliness of the Sri Lankan people. Always ready to help with a smile. The person who hired all these people really knew what he was doing, because he hired the best of the best, of what Sri Lanka has to offer. By far, one of the BEST experiences at a hotel I've ever had. And it was all due to the people there. Thank you all: Senarath, Sangeeth, Sanjaya and Lakmal. And the head Housekeeper (Im so sorry, I forgot to ask your name). While the beauty and charm of Tamarind Hill is amazingly beautiful, you guys made my stay GREAT. Thank you!
