Property description

Two and a half acres of lush tropical gardens, the steady sea breeze and the hypnotic sound of the Indian Ocean rolling onto the reef, make this a very special place to unwind and reconnect with the simpler things in life.

Combining the best of contemporary Sri Lankan design, with traditional materials and craftsmanship, Villa Sulanga (wind) and Villa Vatura (water) each have four large en-suite double bedrooms, its own swimming pool and house staff who will happily attend to your every need.

Intended as informal beach houses where you can just kick off your shoes and relax, the wide verandas, open living areas and colonnaded courtyards, blur the boundaries between house and garden and heighten your awareness of the natural elements around you. The open design allows for cooling breezes to waft through the villas and keep it comfortable even in the height of summer.

You can rent each villa individually or the entire property.

Meals cooked for you at market price: Breakfast is complimentary, so each morning our cooks will prepare fresh fruit, toast, eggs any style, hoppers, roti, tea, coffee and freshly squeezed juice, to set you up for the day.

And they will happily prepare delicious Sri Lankan curries, fresh fish or lobster straight from the fishermen on our beach, or roast chicken and other simple western dishes for lunch or dinner, and all you pay is the cost of the ingredients in the market that morning.

Villa Vatura: Galle Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 872461ha

Villa Vatura has four air-conditioned, ensuite bedrooms, each with double doors opening onto the balcony or veranda. Although very similar to Villa Sulanga, it's distinct features are a TV room, where the little ones can watch a movie from our DVD collection, and a very shallow section of the swimming pool, which is perfect for toddlers and babies. Consequently we think of it as slightly more child friendly.

Car: Not Necessary

Set on the Southern shore of Sri Lanka, just a few minutes along the coast from spectacular Mirissa Beach and within easy reach of Galle Fort, Talaramba Reef offers an idyllic holiday experience.

The warm and breezy coast of Southern Sri Lanka has charmed and captivated visitors for centuries – from King Solomon and Chinese Admiral Zheng He, to traders from the Arabian Peninsula and the Portuguese, Dutch and British of more recent colonial times. As a result the area has a fascinating and vibrant culture, expressed not least through its varied architecture, fabulous food and vibrant festivals.

If total relaxation and fine dining is your goal, then you never have to leave Talaramba Reef, but if you're feeling a little energetic, there's plenty to keep you occupied nearby:


There are numerous beach cafes for a drink or fresh barbequed fish along Mirissa beach, fabulous rice & curry up at Mirissa Hills cinnamon plantation and if you want to go further afield, glamorous dining at the Galle Fort Hotel and Amangalla in Galle Fort.


We have four bikes at the house for energetic types who fancy a spin through the paddies. Once off the main roads, you are embraced by the charm of rural Sri Lankan life and two wheels provide the right pace at which to experience it.


The surfing near Talaramba Reef is fantastic all year round, although good clean breaks are easier to find between November and April. There are good surf spots a couple of kilometers up the road towards Matara, and in Mirissa, as well as Ahangama and Midigama. Beginners and kids can take longboard lessons in nearby Weligama.


Game fishing is available with Mirissa Water Sports out of Mirissa harbor and there's great shore fishing from the beach and rocks.


Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine and holistic wellness native to India and Sri Lanka. Excellent ayurvedic consultations and treatment programmes are offered up the road from Talaramba at Barberyn Beach Ayurvedic Resort in Weligama.


The Secret Root Spa in Mirissa offers fabulous massages in a peaceful, simple garden environment or their masseurs will come to you at the villas if you prefer.

Tea tasting

Our local tea plantation, Handunugoda Tea Estate, produces Virgin White Tipped tea, which costs more than silver and is harvested using a variation of an ancient Chinese tradition developed for the emperor. The original method had virgins cutting the leaves into a bowl with golden scissors so the tea is untouched by human hand. The modern version, more prosaically, has the workers wearing gloves.


With Sri Lanka being predominantly Buddhist, there are temples and stupas everywhere, some large and welcoming of tourists, others small and very local. When visiting a temple or stupa, please dress conservatively, take shoes and hats off before entering, and leave a donation for the monks.

Whale watching

Southern Sri Lanka is one of the best places in the world to see blue whales. Whilst it is an incredible experience seeing these giant mammals up close, we are also very conscious of the effect that unregulated pursuit will have on their annual visits. If you want to go whale watching then please use a government licensed company, such as Mirissa Water Sports. This will also ensure that you return safely.
