The family has now renovated the Villa Thalpe Walawwa to bring it into the 21st century but not forgetting to retain the old colonial charm that takes you back in time.

We stayed here for two nights in August. We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this place. The villa has a beautiful and large garden, a very nice swimming pool and all what we asked for. The service was excellent where the staff never said no and was very attentive to all our requirements, the food was nothing short of excellent.The villa has a colonial type atmosphere which makes it an even better experience. The surprising part was where the villa had its own organic vegetation to hand pick from. Never expected this when we booked, but it was truly fantastic from the time we stepped in. Would go back to this place with no second thoughts.

A truly wonderful place set in tropical gardens with a old world, colonial type feel, this was a holiday to remember. Very comfortable, good sized, immaculately clean room with WiFi and AC. Superb breakfast, in fact we ended up eating most of our meals there once we had tasted Marvin(Errol)'s curries, excellent food and great value! 10min tuk tuk ride to the shops/restraunts at Unawatuna beach. The pool is exceptional, immaculately clean and well maintained. I am a keen photographer was in my ellement wondering around the extensive grounds snapping the abundant variety of exotic birds. "The staff" Marvin and Surnaga, made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble, a pleasure to have met them and we left as good friends. My wife and I would go back in a heartbeat.
