Templeberg Villa,


Price From :


Templeberg is a six-bedroom holiday retreat with a laid back ambience which feels more like a private home. This 200-year-old southern home with verandhas, courtyards, terracotta floors and clay tiled roofs has been caringly refurbished maintaining its old world charm. Templeberg consists of the Main House and a two bedroom cottage set on five acres of coconut, fruit and vegetable gardens which attract many species of birds and monkeys. Templeberg offers traditional Sri Lankan cuisine, Ayurvedic wellness and comfortable rooms in a tranquil setting. Relax on the verandah surrounded by bird call or take a stroll into the Kadudruduwa village and experience rural life. Templeberg Villa can be booked by the room or as a whole villa and can accommodate up to 10 guests.


There are four bedrooms in the main house and two bedrooms in the cottage. Bedrooms are furnished with double or single four-poster beds fitted with mosquito netting. There is no air-conditioning; overhead ceiling fans and cooling units help to keep the rooms comfortable. Ensuite bathrooms have h/w showers.

Main House Rooms:  The spacious Plantation Suite is located at the front of the house and opens out to the verandah and garden. It is furnished with a king-size four-poster bed, writing desk and small round table and chairs by the window for dining. There are also three queen-size rooms opening out to the central courtyard and the gardens.

Cottage Rooms: This two bedroom cottage is set at the back of the property away from the main house. The bedrooms open on to a verandah, central grassy courtyard  and the gardens. These two bedrooms share a bathroom and are ideal for a family or friends travelling together.

Meals are served on the veranda looking out to the gardens. Traditional Sri Lankan cuisine, snacks, fresh fruit juices, tea and coffee are served. Join the cook in the kitchen and learn to prepare rice and curries. Most of the fresh vegetables, fruits and coconuts are from their own plantation; fresh seafood and other groceries are purchased from the village market or from Galle town. Alcoholic beverages are not available, but guests are welcome to bring their own. There is a large infinity-edge swimming pool surrounded by sun loungers and an in-house spa offers Ayurvedic treatments and relaxing massages, whilst an experienced Ayurvedic doctor overlooks the therapy programmes. Other facilities include Wi-Fi, iPod dock, satellite TV, board games and books; a small plunge pool in the garden for cooling off; and a trishaw in which guests can head off to the beach. The beaches of Unawatuna Bay, Thalpe, Habaraduwa, and Kabalana are all just a short ride away and good for swimming, snorkeling and surfing during December to April.
