Take a look inside Royal Indigo Villa

Located in Thalpe, Sri Lanka minutes away from the popular Galle Fort with its historical affluence and tourist attractions, Royal Indigo Villa is a luxury retreat with four bedrooms and excellently-appointed communal spaces, designed by a local architect. Made using antique furniture, reclaimed timber, and natural materials, the villa exudes a charm that is hard to find in big cities. With the Indian Ocean flanking the tropical gardens and the private pool, you know you’ve landed yourself a good deal! The beautiful Dutch-inspired interiors is definitely Sri Lankan, and welcomes you for a good time.

Location

The villa could not be more ideally located in Thalpe, alongside several other luxurious holiday homes that are the pride of Sri Lanka. The historical city of Galle, where the Galle Fort has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a place that you must visit. There are numerous restaurants and cafes waiting to be explored in the area as well!

Other than the fantastic location right on the ocean front with sea turtles and crabs galore, the highlight was the excellent service and spectacular food. The chef, ex of the Intercontinental Doha, was delightful and varied and catered for discerning “foodie” adults and young and very young children. The villa team was discreet but ever at hand to tidy up and fill up (the glasses!). Trips in people carriers and tuk-tuks were reliably arranged and the 24hr security professional. Nearby some of. the local bars/restaurants have disappeared post COVID but there are beach bars at short tuk-tuk ride away. Galle is a fabulous town with markets and shopping (particularly for the ladies) with some excellent restaurants- though the service was not up to previous high SriLankan standards (post COVID I fear). But the best food is at the villa anyway. Go for the SriLankan breakfasts and the seafood BBQ - never seen so many lobsters on one table. Highly recommended villa. Mention too of villa finder who helped us out after being “bumped” from our first choice.

What a beautiful villa, the pictures do not do any justice! After you have blown away by the well-decorated interior and amazing views, you cannot help but realize that its perfection is completed by the team of wonderful staff -> from service to the yummiest food ever! Thank you Lakmal, Chef Janaka, & team for looking after our every need. We loved it here so much and if fate allows it, we will surely be back again.

We stayed as a family of 6 for a week and had a great time. The Villa is excellent and the staff even better. Janaka put all of the local restaurants to shame - a truly wonderful cook. We spent a lot of time surfing in Weligama and trips to Galle in the evening, although there are a lot of great restaurants nearby too. One downside is the noise - Road on one side and roaring surf that never stops on the other - nevertheless it would be hard to beat.

Stepping in off the road Royal Indigo Villa is like another world. Welcomed by staff, manager Lakmal, who organized our stay and activities, chef Janaka who had a delicious lunch waiting (and many other great meal), housekeeper Leslie who kept all looking beautiful around the 8 of us including a 16 months old, Ranga who drove us around the district with ease. The house is new, spacious and airy with shutters leting in the breeze & the sound of the waves. The bedrooms are all in separate areas of the house with private verandah and lovely views. We loved the pool and the lawn with the beach just outside the fence.
