The Space

A secret, serene, private villa stay, just moments away from the heart of Galle and the historical Dutch fort.

Villa Templeberg is built in the colonial style of a Dutch merchant house (c.1864). Each room has been lovingly restored and updated to modern standards. The beds in each room are larger than standard king size and the quality linen and mattresses have been custom/handmade.

The villa has:
•Unlimited free wifi
•western fully equipped kitchen and bathroom facilities
•a small plunge pool
• free laundry and daily breakfast
•ten full time staff including cook
•easy access to the South Coasts major tourist attractions.

Templeberg Villa and Templeberg bungalow are discreetly hidden on a working five acre coconut plantation, between emerald green paddy fields, water buffalo, pristine beaches and a 46 foot high Buddha statue.

While we're near the tourist track, it's hard to believe that these pieces of paradise are only four kilometres from the historic, UNESCO protected Galle Fort and the famous pure beaches of Talpe and Unawatuna – great for surfing, relaxation, water sports and swimming.

The villa:

•is set 150 metres back from the jungle’s edge,
• is designed on an open plan basis with high ceilings, fans, polished terracotta floors and overhanging eaves in order to enjoy the cool hilltop breeze while also bathing in the temperate Sri Lankan light.
• has three separate large suites each with ensuites and a double bedroom cottage, with shared bathroom. Adjoining the entrance way is a separate dining room and built in lounging sofa.
• option of indoor and outdoor dining by the pool, side verandah or in the garden.

We're largely undiscovered having previously been a private residence. We offer several responsible tours that are opportunities for our guests to learn about our local surrounds, pick up a new skills such as Sri Lankan cooking or unwind and relax through massage.

We tailor Sri Lankan holiday packages to suit our guests needs. Our in house Sri Lankan Tour Guide Sandrew can arrange day trips to Yala National Park, afternoon teas at nearby hotels in Galle or walks to the nearby rainforest.
