Eid holidays are almost over, so plan your next escape to a luxury private retreat in Sri Lanka

Fancy a boutique hotel all to yourself? Talalla House, located on a sleepy bay along Sri Lanka’s southern coast, is a holiday experience most people only dream of. A contemporary, fully-staffed private villa consisting of seven en-suite bedrooms, a private pool, roof terrace and only three hours by car transfer from Colombo, it offers families or groups of friends an elegant space in which to relax in complete privacy.

Situated next to the picturesque, almost secluded Talalla Beach, the villa offers uninterrupted views across the Indian Ocean – the waves of which will lull you to sleep at night and wake you up gently in the morning, ready for a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast of egg hoppers, coupled with coffee, fresh fruit salad and mango lassi, prepared especially for you. Food is a big part of this villa holiday, as the exotic taste of local cuisine is showcased beautifully by the in-house chef, who cooks three world-class meals per day using locally-sourced ingredients. Fish curry, barbecue and fresh salads are included in the extensive menu, and will help fuel active days out surfing, running along the beach or practicing yoga on the deck.

For those who require rest and relaxation through minimal motion, the pool, garden and roof terrace offer private corners in which to hide away with a good book, and a massage can be booked through the villa staff to be enjoyed in the comfort of the villa. With a year-around comfortable climate, and only four hours from the Middle East, Sri Lanka is an ideal choice for a long weekend away, in a private space all of your own.
