The Tanamera Estate, Talpe, Galle

Two acres of lush palm-shaded manicured gardens and 200-metres of absolute oceanfront set a picturesque scene for Tanamera, an exquisite three-bedroom private villa within easy striking distance of Galle’s historic 17th century fort.

Ideal for couples, families and friends, Tanamera is home to two meticulously styled ocean-view king-bedded suites, each with private bathrooms, as well as a tucked-away garden-view suite with twin beds. The villa’s elegant living and dining areas extend to a charming garden pavilion, which basks in Indian Ocean panoramas and sits beside an inviting swimming pool.
