My husband and I stayed at the Tamarind Hill for two nights while we visited Galle. The property is an impressive old Manor House that has been renovated into 12 stunning rooms. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The room was fantastic, albeit in need of a coat of paint and some touching up, and the breakfast was delicious...

Delightful place, maintained in the good, cultured Sri Lankan way with high standards and great ambiance. A place to find peace, delve into outlaying books and soak in the exotism of the destination rather than bum it away with "fun, friends and music" or so. Inspirational and helpful staff round the experience. The GM and Lakman know of their heritage!...

While it isn't beach front it makes up for it with peace, tranquility, excellent service and food and beautiful rooms and lounge areas. We had a family wedding here and I can't rate it highly enough. Not located right in the centre of galle but only 10min tuk tuk away ... which we were worried about but worked out perfectly...

Just a few kms short of Galle, we saw a sign board "Tamarind Hill" - the place was easy to miss since it was off the main road. Just popped in for a cup of tea but we stayed on for more than an hour since we were so overwhelmed by the charm of the place and the staff. A...

A luxury hotel that pays attention to the finer details. The white-glove treatment starts with the registration process all the way through escorting you to your wonderful room. The rooms are a throwback to an earlier era, as is the whole property, but equipped with the best you would expect in a luxury resort. Caring staff led by Nihal their...
