    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
    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, with four poster beds, comfortable mattresses, and en-suite bathrooms. Up to two single beds can be added to each room for children.French windows open onto wide balconies, where you can sit and take in t...

    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.

Do yourself a huge favor and book this place.
The house is beautiful, perfect for a large group. We were 3 couples and a single. The house is tastefully appointed, stylish and comfortable. The place was spotless.
The pool and grounds are gorgeous! The tiled pool is large enough to be used for laps.
If you are hesitant about having a cook and staff, let me assuage your fears - the staff could not be more lovely and unassuming. It is surprising just how comfortable it is - not awkward at all because they seem genuinely happy in their work (the owners likely treat them very well). There isn't much around the house by way of restaurants etc. so I highly recommend having Deepani (the cook and head of staff) do the cooking for you. She will buy the ingredients, which you pay for at cost (including fresh caught that day fish, lobster and crab!), and create the most beautiful five-star meals for you. They frankly spoiled us because we never had a meal as good as she made...

I spent 3 days there with a group of friends celebrating a birthday getaway. Seriously the best place to unwind from the daily grind. So peaceful and tranquil.
No need to go find a decent restaurant because the kitchen knocked out some of the best fish, meat and vegetable curries I have ever tasted. If rest and relaxation is what you are looking for then I highly recommend Talaramba Reef's Villa Vatura and her sister Villa Sulanga. Outstanding value for money !!
