Hotel Overview

Talalla Retreat is a boutique hotel situated in the Southern Beaches area of Sri Lanka. Our extensive 3.5 acre grounds are a two minute walk from Talalla beach and feature lush green grass and tall palm trees. Birdís song, and the lull and hush of waves breaking on the nearby shore will slow your mind and body down to a more tranquil pace.

The retreat sits meters from Sri Lanka's most peaceful and protected beach Talalla Beach.
Talalla Beach is an undiscovered crescent cove of glassy crystal clear turquoise water, spotless golden sand and mesmerizing sunrises. Amongst all of the resorts in Sri Lanka, Talalla Retreat occupies a unique spot - if you really do want to get way from it all, in a hotel of elegant simplicity just meters from the beach, and all at an affordable price, this is the place for you. Our promise to you as a guest of Talalla Retreat is peace, tranquility and security, in an environment of breathtaking beauty - provided by nature, and accommodation of elegant simplicity - provided by us.

We offer eight gracefully decorated two-storey villas set in landscaped gardens. Each villa has four spacious bedrooms, making 16 twins and 16 doubles. All rooms have mosquito nets, are bright and airy and each has its own private balcony or veranda. There is no need for air conditioning in our rooms as they are all cooled by natural sea breezes and ceiling fans. Every room has its own large open-sky marble bathroom. All rooms are immaculately serviced everyday and normal amenities such as laundry and ironing are available. As our aim is for you to leave us feeling peace and tranquility entirely, there are no in-room TV or entertainment centers to deter you from reaching this goal. To soothe your soul, calm your mind and invigorate your body we do, however, offer yoga and tai chi classes and guided meditations. And to amaze your senses Sri Lanka offers you her natural beauty of beaches, jungles and teeming wildlife. There are countless places of interest and natural beauty to explore in the vicinity.
