Stunningly beautiful little hotel with a total of 7 (?) rooms, a secluded garden & a eternity-pool ending on the edge of the beach. The rooms, the food, the service - everything adds to a fabulous experience. Comfortable hammocks in the garden, breathtaking views.

If you’re looking for a place to have a delicious lunch or dinner in and around Galle, you must consider Apa Villa Thalpe. With a superb food menu and service you can sample local Sri Lankan delights or if you prefer some awesome Singaporean interpretations.

Nice villa but very old and tired. need to be updated and tidied up. The room are big with plenty of space but not so clean, the staff is great and friendly. Unfortunately the beach is not safe for swimming.

The beach strip is shared by a number of resorts. It is not private but has little traffic. It is narrow but easy access to the ocean. You can make a leisurely walk along the beach. Larger beach areas are closer to Galle... More
