Set on magnificent Talalla Beach, this great value yoga and surfing destination on Sri Lanka’s south coast, is the perfect place to get away from it all without breaking the bank.
Talalla Retreat is very relaxed and informal, located in glorious lush grounds just beside the secluded crescent of Talalla Beach. Here, calm turquoise seas meet golden sands on a beautiful stretch of coast; compelling sunsets and sunrises come as standard.
comprises eight 2-storey villas, built of concrete (to withstand the salt winds) and finished with local wood to create a more organic look. Each villa has 4 spacious and airy Deluxe Villa Rooms, allowing cool breezes to flow through, and a balcony or patio area. There’s no need for air-conditioning, though there are ceiling fans to help out in hot weather. The 2 upstairs rooms in each villa have 2 sides open to the lush gardens, with full-height blinds. The 2 downstairs rooms can also be configured as Triples, and have wooden shutters and are more private (and better for those who don’t want to be too exposed to the elements and the insect life).
Inside the rooms you’ll find beamed ceilings, pure white walls and white-netted double or twin beds, with a splash of colour from the bedspread and sofa cushions. It’s all rather ethereal and very calming; don’t expect any TVs, phones or in-room entertainment. Ensuite marble bathrooms are large and open to the skies, which means that you may find yourself sharing your ablutions with insects or the odd bird!
It’s a 3 hour transfer from Colombo airport.
