Spa Villa was designed as a private house 20 years ago. As with all it backs on to the main Galle mirissa road. As long as you have a beach facing room looking across the garden it is beautiful. However it is a little tired in parts and could do do with a coat of paint in

Hi there. We are the true Apa Villa management and owners. Unfortunately, we couldn't get the Thalpe beach property disconnected on TripAdvisor despite all efforts. It seems that the new company has to inform TripAdvisor. The property remains intact but we cannot say about the management and staff. We still run Apa Villa Illuketia, our fabulous inland plantation estate. We wish you a pleasant stay in Galle whichever place you choose.

The beach strip is shared by a number of resorts. It is not private but has little traffic. It is narrow but easy access to the ocean. You can make a leisurely walk along the beach. Larger beach areas are closer to Galle Fort area. Suggest you call APA Villa to get the latest status after the Monsoon.

"The 2 Saffron Villa's were a little more Private"
"Face the sea. That is key."
"The superior suites give you the best verandahs"
"Saffron Villa provides more space and privacy."
"Stick to a room with a garden/sea view... avoid Cinnamon suite 2, look at the floor plan."
