We spent 2 faultless weeks with family and friends in Talalla House. The house is beautifully designed and the bedrooms and living area are designed and furnished to a very high standard.
The pool is perfect - very clean and the perfect temperature.
The garden gate leads directly onto the near-empty beach.
The villa staff are absolutely charming and extremely professional. The standard of cooking is very high and any catering requests (for example for the children) were never a problem.
We used the yoga shala every day and the house organised daily yoga and massages for us.
The house also organised transfers and day trips.
They have a wonderful concierge service which means that food can be ordered and trips organised in advance of your stay.
The house also helped us organise a party with traditional dancers and fireworks.
There are several surfing bays close by.
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.
Perfect getaway for 4 families (8 adults and 8 kids). Villa is ideally situated on the beach, set amongst a beautiful garden and poolside area. The staff are immensely helpful and accommodating and the cuisine at every meal was outstanding. Ideal for families and groups of friends.
had a great stay at Talalla, staff were fantastic, view is amazing, food was excellant, try the crab bisque.
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.
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.
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.
