    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    8 Bedrooms, Sleeps 24
    The lush tropical gardens, the steady sea breeze, and the hypnotic sound of the Indian Ocean rolling onto the reef, make this a very special place to unwind and reconnect with the simpler things in life.

    There are two houses at Talaramba Reef: Villa Sulanga (Wind) and Villa Vatura (Water). Intended as informal beach houses where you can kick off your shoes and relax, the wide verandas, open living areas and colonnaded courtyards, blur the boundaries between house and garden, and heighten your awareness of the natural elements around you. The open design allows cooling breezes to waft through the villas, even in the height of summer, and screens can be dropped to keep the elements out if Mother Nature's mood turns grey.

    Each villa has four spacious, air conditioned, double bedrooms,...

    Car not needed
    How to get there
    Airport: Colombo: 191.0 km
    Railway: Matara: 15.0 km
    From Colombo airport you have the option of road, train or seaplane.

    We can arrange transfers from Colombo by van or car. The journey on the coast road takes 3-4 hours, but the new expressway to Galle cuts the time in half.

    Far less stressful than dealing with Sri Lankan roads is the coast train, which takes about 4 hours from Colombo to Matara, and then 15 minutes by road to Talaramba.

    Or for a real adventure take the Airtaxi seaplane which leaves Colombo for Koggala Lake every morning. Sri Lankan Airlines offer a free transfer from the airport to the Buddhist monastery on the river, which acts as the seaplane terminal/dock. We'll pick you up in Koggala for the 25 minute drive to Talaramba.

We stayed at Talaramba Reef for just over two weeks and loved every minute of it. Our children are young and there 4 of them between 10 months and 3 years and these Villas suited us perfectly. But they still managed to keep the grown ups happy too - a very important and surprisingly difficult balance to find! We'll back... more
