It's the staff that makes this one special and unique
For a little bit of context, I have worked in the travel industry for a couple decades. Spent time at Expedia, Airbnb, TripAdvisor and others. As a result my family travels a lot and has been lucky to experience some of the world's best hospitality. This holiday season we booked the Talalla House for four families, coming from around the world to celebrate together. This house is special; literally feet from a fantastic beach for kids and adults alike combined with a perfect pool, indoor/outdoor living area, multiple dining spots, rooftop views for sundown cocktails and more. It's a great house. But we've seen great houses and locations before. What we have not seen in our time traveling the world is a staff like the team at Talalla. The chef was of exceptional quality cooking both local and western meals. The staff are top notch. They quickly picked up on our specific needs - one family gets up early and likes coffee and oatmeal for breakfast in bed, another sleeps in late and likes eggs on the porch etc. They spotted the trends and then delivered, day in, day out, exceptional, honest, enjoyable and committed service. They really were best in class. We never talk about returning to a home for a 2nd visit (the world has too many amazing places to see) but for the first time ever we talked about coming back here next year. That is entirely as a result of the staff at this home and the hospitality and service they provided.

Perfect house with amazing team
Our extended family stayed at Talalla House for Christmas 2023 - 14 people across three generations - and the house was perfect. Not only is it perched on the hillside giving great views of the beach and sunset, 7 nice large bedrooms and outdoor area perfect for big groups, the highlight of the house and stay was Anil and his team. Over ten years we have stayed at a lot of houses as a family for Xmas and this was easily the best because of Anil, Sumada and Co went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. From the early morning coffee in the room to amazing breakfasts and sumptuous dinners, organizing trips and activities in the region, the service was first class and could not thank them enough.

Most relaxing stay in Sri Lanka
We celebrated my birthday weekend at Talalla House and rarely did we experience such amazing customer service and felt at home. The property is well designed and feels like a home away from home. It's a stone's throw to the beach and has a beautiful pool. Throughout the stay the food prepared by Chef Mr Supun was more than outstanding. The house Manager Mr Anil was incredibly attentive and supported when anything was needed, together with Nishanti, Sumith and Sandun. Definitely the best team and wonderful hosts, who created a relaxed and stress-free atmosphere. We hope to be back soon! Thank you team Talalla House for a memorable time!

Wonderful Talalla House
We had a wonderful stay at Talalla House. The villa is beautiful and so well appointed, perfect for a family with children and elderly. We loved spending time in the pool, playing in the beach and relaxing in the gardens. The food was amazing, well catered for vegetarian, pescatarian, local, western meals. A special thank you to the wonderful staff who made our stay perfect!

Perfect Stay at Talalla House
Stayed here for 10 days with a group of friends and had the best time ever! The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Especially Anil made our stay enjoyable, he helped us with everything you can think of and organized our stay. Also props to Summith the gardener who was very kind and kept the entire property looking perfect. The cook made us 3 delicious meals every day, I can only recommend the Okra Curry. Overall the house was beautiful and well kept and the staff made the stay outrageous. Thanks to the team!

Talalla House, a wonderful stay
Stayed here 1 week with the family during Eid Holiday, and I can definitely say this was the best trip ever. The place is magical and just feels like a dream. Talalla House team, in behalf of the whole family we cannot thank you enough, we enjoyed it to the max. The service and hospitality is just beyond perfection, the chef and the staff are literally the best. They were here just to meet your needs and do anything to satisfy you. Everything was amazing, starting from the fabulous interior, the big pool, and the fine dining . Once again thanks to the villa team who ensured we have the best vacation time.

Beautiful villa and incredible service
We had a wonderful few weeks at Talalla House looked after by Aneel and his team. The location - on the beach is superb - the food is great and the attention to detail of the staff is outstanding. We cannot recommend this too highly.

Wonderful stay, wonderful staff - would come back!
The Villa is in the most incredible location looking over Talalla bay and offering virtually a private beach for the villa. The villa itself has an amazing group of staff lead by Anil. 5* services with fully catered top chef cooking to your needs. The staff were constantly on hand to make your stay special - including making cocktails on the roof top whilst watching the sunset over the bay! Nothing, but praise for the team of staff at the Villa, although some more comfy pillows on the bed would be my only comment.

Five star villa
The combination of this lovely beachvilla with it's magnificent view, the beautiful garden with a great pool together with the best staff you can imagine, made our week in Talalla House into an unforgettable one. Villa manager Anil thought of everything and organized out trips, chef Mahesh surprised us every day with the best food ever and even gave a cookingclass in making fried bananaflower and mangosalsa, Sumudu was always there pampering us with a huge smile, Harshani kept the villa immaculate and our clothes cleaner than they ever were, Sumith made sure the premises were in great shape and the guards made us feel very safe. An extreme carefree time with great massages at the house, yoga lesson in the garden, wonderful New Year's Eve fireworks on the beach and the best cocktails every night. We felt so spoiled. Enjoying the privacy of a house with the service of a five star hotel, it doesn't get any better than this.
