An undiscovered beach resort paradise, Talalla is a boutique hotel offering barefoot rustic charm on the southern beaches of Sri Lanka. Talalla offers its guests a level of elegant simplicity just meters from the lapping waters of a secluded cove of crystal clear turquoise water, spotless golden sand and mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets. Here, time is measured in moments of serenity and pleasure. It is a place to get away from it all and to absorb the unsurpassed natural beauty of Sri Lanka.
A jungle paradise, Talalla is built low rise, and set into lush gardens, resplendent with tropical flora. Monkeys play in the coconut palms swaying softly in the breeze. Monitor lizards roam freely as they have since the days of the dinosaurs. Squirrels twitter as they dart through the grass. And at night, fireflies light-up the surrounds, guiding you lightly to your villa.
Talalla was built with nature in mind. It is comprised of seventy rooms including ocean view villas, bamboo huts and the ever popular deluxe rooms. For those on a budget there is also affordable dormitory accommodation in a beautiful colonial house. Elegantly designed rooms include open air marble bathrooms, private patios and great views of the lush gardens. Mud bricks and bamboo blinds blend in seamlessly with the gardens, creating an atmosphere at one with the environment. Talalla also has a 20m freshwater lap pool, three custom built yoga pavilions, spa facilities and a gourmet open-air restaurant serving the freshest healthiest meals.
