Villa
There are two houses on the property of Talaramba Reef, Villa Sulanga and Villa Vatura. Intended as informal beach houses where you can 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 cooling breezes to waft through the villas, even in the height of summer, and screens can be dropped to keep the elements out if Mother Nature's mood turns grey. Each villa has four spacious, air conditioned, double bedrooms, with four poster beds, comfortable mattresses, and en-suite bathrooms. Up to two single beds can be added to each room for children.

About the neighbourhood
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: Dining 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. Cycling 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. Surfing The surfing near Talaramba Reef is fantastic all year round, although good clean breaks are easier...
