We were lucky enough to stay at Templeberg at the end of our 2 week trip to Sri Lanka. I occupied the very comfortable and beautifully furnished villa. My 2 daughters occupied the equally beautiful and well furnished bungalow. The villa is set in a peaceful plantation, is beautifully and tastefully decorated and a perfect place to relax with a masseuse at hand, if required.
The staff are exceptional and in particular the meals are some of the tastiest I have experienced in Sri Lanka. We ventured down to the local market and shops in tuk tuks with the staff so that we could shop and prepare for our cooking lesson.
Templeberg offers the tranquility and calmness that you might be looking for on a holiday. However, there is no shortage of things to occupy you either. Set just outside Galle - so only 5 mins away, for some retail therapy or visit the Galle Fort and watch the sun set. A beautiful part of the world.
Karin the owner was a wonderful host and very welcoming to us all. We felt very much at home from the moment we arrived.
