Why Hanif Yusoof chose Talpe
Ishq is informal, homely and bespoke. Family owned villa takes its name from the Arabic word for love. Located along Galle’s “French Riviera”, Ishq is a four-bedroomed luxury villa that first came to be in the 1990’s, a part of the original fabric of the island’s first luxury villas designed by the renowned architect Bruce Fell-Smith. Today, the villa marries a love for clean design with oceanic hues and brings together all the comforts and exclusivity of a private luxurious home. At Ishq, we don’t dine, we feast. From the elaborate and unique spread at breakfast to garden cooking classes under swaying palms and market visits, or elegant poolside dinners and private dinners for two under a blanket of stars, your personal chef and his team are geared to know your preferences and dislikes prior to your arrival. The focus at Ishq is on fresh and seasonal local produce to plate up the most gorgeous dishes, each tailor made. Come sunset, the villa’s garden by the ocean’s edge transforms into a candle lit, palm fringed space for sundown drinks and dinner under a blanket of stars. What’s not to love?
