Take a look inside Ishq Talpe Villa

Priding itself in offering a colonial, Dutch-inspired architectural marvel coupled with the serenity of the Indian Ocean across the gardens, ISHQ Villa is a wonderful and pleasing holiday home, a retreat, with splendid interiors and outdoor facilities. With five bedrooms, the gorgeous property is a bespoke boutique hotel that met a private villa. Located in the city of Galle, home to the famous Galle Fort, the villa is conveniently located near Sri Lanka’s coast. Enjoy a private event with friends and family, or spend a restful, rejuvenating vacation while basking in the luxurious ambiance of ISHQ Villa.


The villa is ideally located right across the Indian ocean, which is not only a pretty view but a chance to truly explore Sri Lanka’s beautiful coast. The historical city of Galle is steps away from the villa, so you can even visit Galle Fort, and appreciate the other Dutch-inspired buildings in town.

10/10 (Average rating based on 5 reviews)

Home from home, but with 5* service Ishq Talpe is a serene home from home, my family & I loved our stay there & were very well looked after by Manjula & all the staff. They took great care in looking after a specific meal plan that I was following, they were very accommodating & couldn’t do enough to help us. I would highly recommend Ishq Talpe to families wanting to visit Sri Lanka.

Absolutely gorgeous One of the best luxury villas we have stayed in Sri Lanka. The staff, the food, the attention to detail have all exceeded our expectations. Can’t wait to go back for a longer stay to rewind again. Absolute paradise. The staff put together an amazing bbq for us, on a very short notice, had our Impromptu requests met without any hesitation. We were a group of 10. We Loved everything about the place. The rooms, The pool, the views. Can’t wait to go back.

Wow, best villa ever! Stayed there for 3 nights and what a truly amazing stay it was. It is brand new - opened in November 2017. The complete renovation was lead by one of the first students of Jeffrey Bauer, so every detail is carefully chosen. The ocean front view is really fantastic. It has 4 large bedrooms and is ideal for extended families of grown ups of friends gatherings. The villa is rented out as a whole, so even if you are just 2, you will have full privacy. It has multiple entertainment areas, we especially liked the gaming room, where you can play board games, read a book from the library collection, watch series on Netflix on Apple TV or have fun with Playstation, Nintendo WII. It's the best equipped villa I've seen in terms of the sound system, as Bose speakers are all over the place, whereas each room has its own iPad to switch between songs easily. There was some construction work done in the next building (should be supposedly finished within a couple of weeks) but we really didn't mind. The food was great - we only had breakfast included, but chose to stay in the retreat to have delicious lunch and dinner. The manager is a former gourmet chef and can make your wishes come true. The staff was very helpful and nice. The beach is wild so you don't have good access straight from the villa, you have to take 3 min walk. Overall highly recommend it - might also be a great place to have a small wedding.
