Location

Matara, Sri Lanka

Gandara is a village in the Matara District on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, 168 kilometres from Colombo.

The temple in the village was built by ancient kings and now is a popular sacred place among Buddhists in the area.

The beaches are beautiful and the land behind peaceful and vibrant.

It is known for its well-preserved Dutch forts. The Matara fort consists of a large stone rampart, occupying the promontory, which separates the lagoon and the ocean.

To visit this historical town, fly to Colombo International Airport which is the main international airport serving Sri Lanka.

Food

Vibrant tropical fruit, crisp seasonal fresh vegetables and fresh local seafood feature prominently in their traditional Sri Lankan delicacies and international favourites. They take pride in their low mileage approach to food, sourcing local ingredients from nearby markets and fishing villages. Much of the resorts herbs and spices are grown organically on the property, while other seasonal ingredients are gathered fresh daily from local markets and fishermen.

Your day starts with a menu of tropical fruits, buffalo curd, fine cut oats, fresh coconut, homemade papaya jam and swiss pancakes. Follow up with eggs-any-style, omelette, fresh dhal and coconut curry.

At midday, lunch is either a la carte, with local favourites such as sour mango curry, or international options including vegetarian burritos and panzanella.

Dinner each night is an event, with highlights including fresh tuna sashimi, or garlic barbeque prawns. Local tastes are explored with okra, beetroot or banana flower curries, and red rice. Salads are a meal in themselves, and European eggplant bakes, potato au gratin or spaghetti napolitana serve as a taste of home. Desert delights with staples including banana cake, crème caramel or local pancake with coconut jaggery.

Accommodations

Dormitory at Talalla Beach Resort

Dormitory

For the social being who loves meeting others on their travels The Bungalow- The Dorm is the perfect place to hang out in between your Surf & Yoga Sessions. With direct access to the Bungalow social areas and the beautiful grounds and pool on your doorstep this is as good as budget traveling gets. Don’t focus on the room size because this is not where you will be spending your time. 

Private Bungalow at Talalla Beach Resort

Private Bungalow

The beautifully set rooms in a traditional Sri Lankan styled Bungalow still allow you to have access to beautiful grounds, pool and Surf & Yoga facilities (extra charge), whilst still having the privacy offered from a private room. The Bungalow includes a separate living area, front balcony and kitchen with a shared bathroom. This allows you to experience the  Surf Camp or Yoga Retreat whilst working around your own budget.

Private Room at Talalla Beach Resort

Private Room

On a smaller budget but don’t want to miss out on a luxury experience with your own private ensuite bathroom? Then the Big House room will serve as the perfect place of rest after a long day of surf and yoga adventures. These rooms are a short walk up through the Retreat and provide you with an expansive view through the jungle canopy. You will love spending your afternoon on the deck watching the monkeys jump from tree to tree on their afternoon commute.

Venue   Talalla Beach Resort
Talalla Beach Resort, Venue for 7 Day Yoga Retreat in Sri Lanka

An undiscovered beach resort paradise, Talalla is a boutique hotel offering barefoot rustic charm on the southern beaches of Sri Lanka. Talalla offers its guests a level of elegant simplicity just meters from the lapping waters of a secluded cove of crystal clear turquoise water, spotless golden sand and mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets. Here, time is measured in moments of serenity and pleasure. It is a place to get away from it all and to absorb the unsurpassed natural beauty of Sri Lanka.


A jungle paradise, Talalla is built low rise, and set into lush gardens, resplendent with tropical flora. Monkeys play in the coconut palms swaying softly in the breeze. Monitor lizards roam freely as they have since the days of the dinosaurs. Squirrels twitter as they dart through the grass. And at night, fireflies light-up the surrounds, guiding you lightly to your villa. 


Talalla was built with nature in mind. It is comprised of seventy rooms including ocean view villas, bamboo huts and the ever popular deluxe rooms. For those on a budget there is also affordable dormitory accommodation in a beautiful colonial house. Elegantly designed rooms include open air marble bathrooms, private patios and great views of the lush gardens. Mud bricks and bamboo blinds blend in seamlessly with the gardens, creating an atmosphere at one with the environment. Talalla also has a 20m freshwater lap pool, three custom built yoga pavilions, spa facilities and a gourmet open-air restaurant serving the freshest healthiest meals. 


An Air Taxi runs a convenient service from Colombo – close to the International Airport and stops in Dikwella, less than half an hour from the resort. You can book an airport pickup and drop off service from both Colombo and Matalla Airport. From Colombo Airport, the journey takes around 4 hours. You can also get to the resort by train. From Colombo Airport, get a taxi to Maradana Station. Buy a ticket for Matara Station. On arrival to Matara, get a taxi or tuk tuk to the resort. 


For ease and convenience, airport transfers can also be arranged through the venue for an additional cost of $110 USD.
