Take a look inside Thalassa Villa

Since 2006, Thalassa has welcomed families and friends in abundance - they come to read, to sleep, to swing in hammocks to the sound of the sea, to write, to paint, to exercise, to chat, to swim and to eat local seafood and other delicacies. They love the sound of the sea and the deep peace of the place, the scent of tropical flowers and the comfort and kindness that six smiling attentive staff bring to our lives there.

Thalassa is a beautiful family villa on the edge of a small palm plantation, through which guests walk in one minute to the sea down a white sand path through a gate of cinnamon sticks. Mahawella beach is a mile long and undeveloped and pristine - there are a couple of palm-fronded cabin restaurants and fishing boats. The house itself is well set back from the beach, so it is private and is also enormous and colourful - full of books and contemporary Sri Lankan art and antiques.


Thalassa is situated in the extreme south of the island. It is about 3 hours from the airport at Colombo, mostly down fast motorways. It is well worth the trip to reach the most glorious scenery of dazzling small bays, waving palm trees and intense colours and scents of markets, flowers and spices and finally, the charm, order and peace of Thalassa itself.
