Talalla retreat also has it’s own resident surf guides who can take you to some of the best hidden surf sports in Sri Lanka.

“A choice of accommodation to suit every budget and person”

Whether you choose one of the deluxe villa rooms, ocean view villas, bamboo Eco huts or the shared dorm accommodation in the colonial house, an amazing stay is guaranteed. The retreat has a 20m freshwater lap pool, three custom built yoga pavilions and spa facilities. The whole retreat has been built with a natural, eco aspect from the open air marble bathrooms through to mud brick foundations. Grab your board, stroll through sprawling tropical gardens onto the white sands and be paddling out within minutes of leaving your room.
