Talalla House Living

Talalla House is hugged by a quintessentially Sri Lankan concrete screen, which allows for a fresh breeze to flow through the rooms while keeping out the heat of the sun. This cooling effect is further enhanced by the innovative rooftop garden. It’s impossible to describe Talalla House without highlighting the impressive beach which you’ll find waiting right outside.

Living Room

The living room can be used as a breezy open-plan lounge in true tropical style, with the massive infinity pool glimmering just outside. As the night continues, the rooms’ French doors can be closed for added privacy. The décor is a carefully curated mix of modern furniture and indigenous influences, complete with a hand-woven rattan screen alongside plush red sofas and a sleek teakwood bar.

Dining Room

Sharing the same space with the living room, the dining table of polished cement is definitely the room’s WOW-factor. Seating up to 14 guests, the striking table is perched beneath a custom-made lantern with mesmerising vistas of the ocean working as the unforgettable backdrop of your every meal. The fluid space is adjoined by a fully-furnished kitchen.

Garden & Pool

Talalla House’s stunning pool is the heart and soul of the property, with its 20-metre length running parallel to the whole villa with a freeform shape hugging the living spaces seamlessly. The pool features a convenient shallow end, which allows kids to splash around safely under their parents’ watchful eye. Not to mention the pool is strategically positioned to precisely deliver beautiful views overlooking the property’s own private beach.

Talalla House’s beautiful rooftop garden serves multiple functions. It not only helps keep the villa’s interior nice and cool amidst the humidity of the tropics, it also features a vegetable and spice garden, allowing for the ultimate plant-to-plate dining experience. Most importantly however, this rooftop oasis offers the absolute perfect setting for taking in an epic seaside sunset draped on one of the lounge chairs while holding a cold drink.

Talalla House has seven bedrooms, all furnished with a king-sized bed. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor and four bedrooms are housed up on the first floor.

    Superb villa on a deserted beach
    A beachfront villa with stunning oceanfront views, high-end service, sumptuous food and unbeaten level of privacy. We found the matress and cushions extremely comfortable in our large bedroom on the first floor.

    The team were ready and waiting for us to arrive with a welcome drink that was very good and cold towel. The manager is brilliant. His English perfect and the team here are very well trained. Actually some of the best trained staff we have had this whole trip. The chef can cook and the quality is great, the ingredients fresh and I was very impressed. The first night we had the tuna and salad and perfectly cooked, bread to start and the dessert delicious. 
    The bedrooms are quiet which is always a plus. The room was dark which I love and no LCD light on the AC unit so we had a great night sleep. The internet is the best we have had all trip!

    We are in love with the indoor / outdoor dining room. Well thought out design and very functional. I love the rooftop terrace, the views from upstairs and the real grass that lines the roof.  OverallI love the villa and would live here any day. Alastair and I would list this in our top 5 villas of all time. So it rates very high in our book. I recommend this to anyone looking for a very special stay in Sri Lanka.

    Wonderful House, Great Staff, Great Location

    Talalla House was absolutely fantastic. It is in a wonderful location on a headland overlooking a lovely beach. The staff led by Sameera worked hard to make our stay perfect. Fabulous food cooked by Anthony the in-house chef. Really first class.

    There are many beautiful villas in Sri Lanka but this one takes the experience to the next level. It’s newly built and its rather like having a high end boutique hotel to yourself.
    Would really suit a group of several families travelling together.

    An Amazing Retreat In a Secluded Beach

    We rented the house with family and friends from 5y/o to 15 y/o kids and plenty of surf and booze. We had a blast and a really hood time there.
    From the housekeeper to the manager and cooker everything ran perfectly and they provided all we wanted and needed, from medical assistance to special night with local dancers.
    A must go!

    What’s Not To Like?

    The wow factor of Tallala is the spectacular location overlooking one of the most stunning natural beaches in Sri Lanka with access a few steps through the garden gate! A morning swim in the Indian Ocean and a beach walk is priceless. Tallala is what it says ‘barefoot luxury at its best’. The house is luxurious and well designed to accommodate a group of people and the swimming pool is devine and again well designed.

    Sameera and his team make the whole experience feel like home from home nothing is too much trouble. From providing king coconuts every morning before yoga to Anthony the chef taking guests to experience the local vegetable and fish market. Food was a delight our favourite was the amazing variety of delicious curries using local vegetables and incredible fresh fish that were lovingly prepared for us.

    Sunsets and the stars at night are awesome and you leave your shoes at the door from the moment you arrive!

    Private Oasis By The Ocean

    Walk through the gate to the beautiful beach, always almost empty, the stunning pool, the great accommodation and the in house chef was amazing! We were a group of 12 from Australia and there is nothing I would have changed or could have wished for. Hope to revisit

    Amazing Talalla House

    Talalla House is amazing, from the laid back feel to the villa, the wonderful and friendly staff, the chef and his cooking was amazing, and the beach is absolute paradise. I would definately go back, I only wish I could have stayed longer.

    Every day the food was so fresh and beautifully cooked, chef Anthony goes out of his way to ensure he has picked the best fresh food for the guests. All the staff were so accommodating and helpful nothing was a problem for them. I hope to see them all again one day soon.

    Sri Lanka is an amazing place, so beautiful and people are so friendly. All the food is lovely and so fresh.

    Highest Quality Villa on An Almost Empty Beach

    What a gem of a place Talalla House. One of those pieces of paradise that you struggle to find but are so pleased that you did! The house nestles alongside the unspoilt and beautiful Talallla beach and offers all the luxuries you could want without being overly pretentious. The pool is outstanding and the garden was lovely as well. We came here with our kids who were brilliantly catered for, but this would also be a fantastic place to come to with a group of friends. Highly recommended.

    Sunsets to Remember Forever: Gorgeous Modern Fully Serviced Villa

    We were a group of 10 at the villa and had an absolutely wonderful time. Sameera and his staff are attentive but never seem to be in your space which is great for a relaxing holiday.

    By far the highlights were the three meals a day cooked up by chef Anthony. You would be hard pressed to find a better meal on the Island. The view from the roof top is out of this world, and sunset is exceptional. The swimming pool is warm, deep and sparklingly clean and you will find yourself in there at all times of the day.

    The downside was that the beach is windy and the sea was fairly rough at this time of year. It is, however, a short tuk tuk ride to more secluded beaches in the area and Sameera can arrange this easily. We found ourselves doing this most days.

    All in all the villa is a wonderful base to explore the surrounding area from, or to spend lazy days around the pool. The food is exceptional and no holiday here could ever be disappointing.

    “Beachside luxury”

    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.

    “Perfect Paradise”

    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.
