Book Hotel Green Tamarind
At the top of a hill, a 68 m2 suite, 5 minutes away from one of the most beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka, that can welcome 2 or 3 people. From the terrace, you'll be able to enjoy an amazing view on the ocean and the surrounding nature. Green Tamarind is a great place to enjoy your stay in Tangalle. It is truly a window open on nature : from the terrace, you'll be able to contemplate the Indian Ocean, the coconut fringed coast and the peninsulas, the monkeys playing in the Tamarind tree of the courtyard, the little parrots and bats flying at sunset, the fireflies at night, and much more. The suite also has a giant outdoor sofa to relax, a desk if you need to work (wifi is free), an italian shower with on view on the courtyard and the sea... We chose not to use air conditioning : the sea breeze and terrazzo floors naturally cool the rooms, and we also have a fan in the room. You'll have access to our restaurant, where our chef will simmer delicious meals for you, with fruit and vegetables from the Tangalle’s market, fresh fish and sea-food from Unakuruwa’s village... And our delicious breakfast in included in the cost of the rent. We live in Paris, but come every three-four months to our place in Sri Lanka. We'll be happy to meet you and give you good advices about the places to see, but when we are absent, our team will take good care of you. Our place is in the heart of of fishermen village. The people are very friendly. There are two main beaches, 3 and 5 minutes away (walking distance) : when Silent beach is too rough, you can go to the fishermen's bay, which is always quiet. The villagers are very friendly, the children will say hello on the way to the beach! The easiest way is to take a taxi at the airport. The drive is around 4H30 long and costs around 75 €. The house is 4 km west of Tangalle, on Galle road. The train of course will be cheaper. Nevertheless, after a long flight, it might be quite tiring : count 1h to go from the airport to the train station, then 5h30 for the journey and another 45 minutes from Matara (closest train station from Tangalle) to our place. Same for the bus, you'll have to find where to catch it. Outings Our manager, will brief you on all the beaches and sites to be visited in the surrounding area: the Mulkirigala Temple and Dondra Lighthouse are half an hour away. The city of Galle and Yalla National Park, a two hours drive away, are also worth a visit. Najee can arrange the drive for you (by tuk-tuk, scooter or car). For safety reason (steep stairs without protection), children under 7 are not allowed.
