“Beachside luxury”
Reviewed 8 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Brilliant holiday villa on the most perfect beach. The house is very well-appointed and has a real quality feel even though minimalist in design.

Staff are excellent and the food is restaurant quality.

Lots to see in the area but very hard to motivate to leave the pool, except for lunchtime beers at one of the many bars along the beach.

Special place.

Thank you so much for this review and for the time it took you. Very kind. Good to know that cold beers are available as a pit stop when strolling along our fab beach.
Please do come back soon.
Best regards

Thank you so much for your kind review and for the time to write it. I am so thrilled that you were able to enjoy the house so much and that you found the staff and food to exceed your expectations.
The owner has spent considerable effort to encourage Chef Anthony to maximise use of local ingredients and to prepare a well balanced and delicious menu. I am so pleased that, from your experience, this effort is cooking up the desired results.
We look forward to welcoming you back.
Best wishes

“Perfect Paradise”
Reviewed 9 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We spent 2 faultless weeks with family and friends in Talalla House. The house is beautifully designed and the bedrooms and living area are designed and furnished to a very high standard.
The pool is perfect - very clean and the perfect temperature.
The garden gate leads directly onto the near-empty beach.
The villa staff are absolutely charming and extremely professional. The standard of cooking is very high and any catering requests (for example for the children) were never a problem.
We used the yoga shala every day and the house organised daily yoga and massages for us.
The house also organised transfers and day trips.
They have a wonderful concierge service which means that food can be ordered and trips organised in advance of your stay.
The house also helped us organise a party with traditional dancers and fireworks.
There are several surfing bays close by.

Talalla House and its staff are amazing. Location is great, on the beach and has fantastic views. The staff are the best. They looked after us so well, it was hard to say goodbye. Food was delicious. I would recommend for groups and with kids alike.

“Simply perfect”
Reviewed 6 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Perfect getaway for 4 families (8 adults and 8 kids). Villa is ideally situated on the beach, set amongst a beautiful garden and poolside area. The staff are immensely helpful and accommodating and the cuisine at every meal was outstanding. Ideal for families and groups of friends.

“The place is just....gorgeous; the team... amazing”
Reviewed 23 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

One of the best places I ever stayed: the beach is really gorgeous, the combination house/swimming pool something you cannot forget, and the Tallala crew outstanding. It is definitely a lovely way to spend a few days in Sri Lanka.
