    Surfing

Talalla Retreat is a beachfront boutique resort on a pristine, white sandy beach with calm turquoise water, at the southern tip of Sri Lanka. It comprises seventy rooms including ocean view villas, bamboo huts and the ever-popular deluxe rooms. For those on a budget there is also affordable dormitory accommodation in a beautiful colonial house. Elegantly designed rooms include open-air marble bathrooms, private patios and great views of the lush gardens. There is something for everyone. Our retreat has a 20m freshwater lap pool, three custom-built yoga pavilions, spa facilities and a gourmet open-air restaurant serving the freshest healthiest meals. We grow organic vegetables for the kitchen…use good stuff and cook it well… A new beachfront restaurant and pool will be coming soon.

Yoga classes from highly trained western teachers are offered twice daily. Talalla Surf Camp is second to none… from private lessons to board hire and transport. Our coaching is professional, encouraging and focussed on empowering our guests to get the most enjoyment from their surfing experience. Centuries-old Ayurvedic techniques inspire modern treatments, and the signature Shirodhara has been re-created at Talalla. Here, a mixture of essential oils are gently poured on your Third Eye Chakra – allowing you to release any final mental tension. Enjoy an Ayurvedic Massage, where a relaxing full body massage combines with warm ayurvedic herbal oil to cleanse and balance the internal systems and energy center of the body. Sooth tired muscular aches after days out surfing with a deep tissue, reflexology or aromatherapy massage at the ultimate Sri Lanka Spa Experience. Pamper hands, feet or face with local preparations made of papaya, honey, coffee, milk and sandalwood. Wrap, scrub or smooth out any last remnants of stress with skilfully trained expert practitioners at their best.

Nourish your body at Talalla’s signature restaurant, where only the finest local and seasonal produce is selected to foster the best in wellbeing. Locally sourced, seasonal produce. Gentle to the body, gentle to the environment. Sip on a king coconut and enjoy the gentle sea breeze as you savour gourmet Talalla flavours in our stunning open-air restaurant pavilion. Vibrant tropical fruit, crisp seasonal fresh vegetables and fresh local seafood feature prominently in our traditional Sri Lankan delicacies and international favourites. We are proud of our low mileage approach to food, sourcing local ingredients and produce from nearby markets and fishing villages. Much of the resorts herbs and spices are grown organically on the property, while other seasonal ingredients are sourced fresh daily from local markets and fishermen.

At Talalla Retreat we believe a respect for the local culture and natural environment is integral to maintaining a spiritual, harmonious retreat. We work hard to ensure our environmental footprint is minimized and that the local community benefit economically from the retreat and any subsequent tourism in the area. We encourage our guests to enjoy the natural abundance through the open air villas, and provide information to raise awareness of local and environmental issues.

Relax at the full-service spa, where you can enjoy massages, body treatments, and facials. Additional features at this resort include complimentary wireless Internet access, gift shops/newsstands, and wedding services.
