PUSHING the boundaries of luxury hospitality offerings on Sri Lanka’s stunning coastline, Tanamera is the destination of choice for food lovers, culture seekers, and wellness aficionados. Situated in the quaint fishing village of Talpe, Tanamera is an exquisite private residence with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean. Blending the intimacy of villa accommodation with the hospitality of a luxury hotel, breathtaking scenery, genuine service and impeccable attention to detail fuse to create a distinctive accommodation choice in the heart of Sri Lanka.
The three-bedroom beachfront property can sleep up to six guests and was designed to emulate traditional Sri Lankan architecture, with high ceilings, full-length folding doors, towering pillars, archways and verandas adding to the property’s colonial character. Inside, the design of the three en-suite bedrooms blend old world charm with contemporary comforts; two spacious, king-sized bedrooms each offer magnificent ocean views and direct access to a sweeping veranda, whilst the third en-suite room is complete with two super single beds and double doors opening onto the villa’s verdant gardens, offering total privacy to its occupants.
Social areas include a family dining room, dedicated TV room, and a spacious living room, with doors opening onto an outdoor terrace. The sprawling grounds of the property boast manicured lawns, tall coconut palms and 110m of direct ocean frontage. Outdoor socialising areas are abundant, with an outdoor dining area and shaded pool pavilion offering solace from the Sri Lankan sun.
Tanamera embraces a bespoke approach to dining, with a private chef tailoring daily menus to suit all preferences. Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, the dishes are expertly curated to celebrate the flavours of Sri Lanka. A fully stocked bar is complemented by a refreshing selection of cocktails, best enjoyed with the backdrop of the incredible sunsets visible from the front terrace. Guests looking to dedicate time to wellness can take part in sunrise yoga sessions, whilst a visiting masseuse offers a range of treatments, including the utilisation of Ayurvedic and Shiatsu methods to relieve stress, enhance mindfulness, and encourage overall well-being.
For guests wishing to explore the surrounding areas, a knowledgeable concierge team is on hand to arrange a wealth of activities and trips – the Galle Fort World Heritage Site is a short drive away, whilst guided bike tours enable leisurely trips through bird sanctuaries, tea plantations and paddy fields. Tanamera is also in close proximity to some of the region’s most beautiful beaches, including Mirissa Beach and Wijaya Beach, where guests have the opportunity to swim and snorkel with magnificent sea turtles. Also nearby are the Handunugoda Tea Estate, Habaraduwa Turtle Sanctuary, and Udawalawe Elephant Orphanage.
