Photos will be available soon.

The brainchild and creative architecture of Taru, well known in the design world for her vision, exquisite taste and attention to detail.  Now run by a boutique hotel mangement company, this beautiful manor house ( once grand, later dilapidated) has been lovingly restored to become a luxurious boutique style hotel.  Built by a Sinhalese landowner, it has been home to an Admiral and representative of the famous P. and O. line and a High Court Judge.


The style and elegance of the colonial period has been preserved and highlighted within the sympathetic refurbishment and extensions.  Long shady verandahs overlook graceful courtyards, one enclosing the large tamarind tree giving its name to the property.


A confident use of colour compliments large areas of  neutral tones in the lounge, reception area and dining room with vibrant splashes of clear blue upholstery, intricately carved stair rails and colourful flower arrangements.


The largely white walls feature carefully chosen artworks, maps and carvings.  Furniture is a visually exciting mix of ultra modern, antique, reproduction and local pieces.


10 /11 luxurious rooms and 2/3 magnificent suites are beautifully furnished.  All modern ‘must haves’ are included without intruding into the colonial charm while the en suite bathrooms are the essence of the 2000’s.

Situated on a 3 acre hill above the ancient town of Galle the lawns, gardens and lush tropical forest spill down to the river, enclosing an infinity edged swimming pool on the way.
