“Amazing place for families and friends”
Reviewed December 7, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Talalla House and its staff are amazing. Location is great, on the beach and has fantastic views. The staff are the best. They looked after us so well, it was hard to say goodbye. Food was delicious. I would recommend for groups and with kids alike.

“The place is just....gorgeous; the team... amazing”
Reviewed September 22, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

One of the best places I ever stayed: the beach is really gorgeous, the combination house/swimming pool something you cannot forget, and the Tallala crew outstanding. It is definitely a lovely way to spend a few days in Sri Lanka.

“Amazing villa right on the secluded Talalla beach!”
Reviewed September 22, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We are a group of 8 adults + 1 toddler from New York and Malaysia to this wonderful villa in Sri Lanka. We couldn't have chosen a better villa for our first trip to Sri Lanka. We wanted a private, quiet and beautiful villa on the beach and Talalla House was perfect!

Of course, we love the architecture and design of the villa, it is very comfortable for large group to hang out and chill by the pool, waking up to the sounds of the ocean. But it is also the amazing team at Talalla House that made our stay special! We were organizing this as a surprise trip for my friend's 40th birthday and the team had ensure the surprise was executed successfully without a glitch! They even baked a birthday cake for her... the team is always willing to serve and always with a smile.

The villa arranged private driver and trip for us to Galle Fort (1 hour away), and Yala Safari Park (3 hours away), both are worth the visit!

We also had excellent Ayurvedic massages on the yoga loft facing the ocean view. There is also a yoga centre along the beach. The beach itself is not busy with tourists but you can see and say hi to the local kids and fishermen, flying kites on weekends.

The food served by the villa is also delicious. We had lots of seafood, curries and also a BBQ which were all amazing. The villa also takes feedback seriously as they asked us to review on their food on each day! That is great to ensure quality and service is always up to mark.

A minor feedback I hope mgmt can improve is on the address/direction to the villa. perhaps put a map on the website so it's easier for visitors to find the villa. Our driver had some problem looking for it, and the phone number on the website didn't work. We stopped a few times asking the locals and manage to find it after a while.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place, if you're looking for a quiet, beautiful and excellent service for a Sri Lanka beach getaway.

“stunning getaway for the family on a quiet beach with out of this world sunsets”
Reviewed August 24, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

staff was very accommodating, the food was fresh and delicious. the setting and layout of the house was perfectly nestled into a hillside at the end of the beach, easy access for beach walks. bedroom layouts very fitting and a yoga room that immediately get's you in the mood. Oh and let's not forget the incredible roof top garden and chill spot. Grab a drink and watch the sunset from there, it will leave you speechless. Villa is very family friendly all around.

“The perfect paradise ”
Reviewed July 13, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This place is seriously amazing !

I have travelled a lot and this was pure paradise and the perfect place to stay.

4 families consisting of 8 adults and 4 kids stayed here for my 40th birthday (sugar am I that old!!)

(Ps - there are a lot of 'perfects' in this review)

The house is perfectly set just on the beach but slightly risen so you have views across the whole of talalla beach it is quiet and peaceful.

The architecture and interior are tastefully done in an awesome mix of modern and traditional elements.

The local beach wasn't rammed with tourists the odd one or two but mainly friendly locals fishing or exercising with their great big happy Sri Lankan smiles.

The food was outstanding from fresh fruit and local breakfast cruise to huge lunch and dinner spreads of currys, bbqs baked local fish and a range of vegetables and breads the chef combines modern and traditional cooking with great skill.

The team running the place are unbelievable!! Booking tuk tuks and cars when we needed, offering advice on interesting things to do and places to visit.

They are a rare mix of helpful, courteous (with out being in your face and pushy), natural charm and diligent service and always with a genuinely friendly smile they really did make the holiday!

I couldn't say one bad thing about our week at Talalla house it really was idyllic and the perfect 40th birthday !

I (we) will be back !!

Thanks so much to the Talalla team...
