Zephyr Talalla is an intimate escape with an enviable position along Talalla Bay, one of the most beautiful and quiet beaches along Sri Lanka’s sultry south coast. An atmosphere of total tranquillity pervades the property, encouraging barefoot living and days spent wandering along the shoreline or unwinding by the pool. There are just four bedrooms, each spacious and modern with a minimalist design and sweeping sea views, as well as a small kitchenette and cosy central living area. The white-washed open-sided restaurant is a chilled-out spot for relaxed drinks or romantic meals and serves a carefully chosen selection of international favourites and traditional local dishes.
There are four bedrooms at Zephyr, each with glorious sea views. All rooms are spacious and can be tripled if necessary, and have an ensuite bathroom with w/c, shower and sink. The design of the rooms is minimalistic with light wood and muted colours, and all facilities are modern. All rooms have a/c.
The mid-sized pool is surrounded by decking furnished with sun-loungers and tables and chairs, and more seating is available inside the villa and on the edge of the open-sided restaurant, giving you plenty of places where you can relax and unwind with a good book. The expansive beach is safe for swimming between December and March and there are great surfing bays in close proximity. International and local cuisine is available at the restaurant, as are a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Why we like it
The atmosphere of total tranquillity that pervades the property and the picturesque coastal setting.
The beautiful, broad sandy bay at Talalla is a perfect location for a beach escape, little-visited by tourists who tend to favour the neighbouring towns of Tangalle and Mirissa. About two-and-a-half hours from Colombo’s international airport.
