    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.
