All the rooms below include daily morning yoga sessions, breakfast and dinner daily, and three afternoon sessions. There will be lots of time to explore, rest, read books, swan about in the pool and just soak in the beauty of this incredible city – Talalla is located on the southern tip of Sri Lanka near the city of Matara. It is well connected with public transport from all parts of Sri Lanka.

Our beautiful venue:
Staying at the stunning Talalla will be lovely and restorative Easter retreat for all of us. There is 20m pool, you can hear the sounds of the beach at night, wild monkeys can visit you through your open windows and bathrooms (hide your gear in the locked cupboards)... they seem to like toothbrushes! And the food is phenomenal too. But the best part about this special Sri Lankan hideaway is the people. You can do everything or nothing. The venue has its own spa, you can book day trips, go on surf lessons or explore the local village for a spot of shopping – whatever your heart desires.
With a four poster bed, no windows and an open bathroom the sense of freedom is immense in these special rooms – you could day dream the away the day just watching the view and listening to the ocean.
