Tangalle

Overview


 

Tangalle is a beach-lover's paradise and is untouched by the commercial hand. The Beach House sits at the tip of the island and boasts its own beach at the foot of its 3-acre estate.

The blue and white beach bungalow has combined colonial architecture with the quaint style of English beach huts.  Damika, the local manager and his efficient team of housekeepers, chef and gardener fulfil your every need and allow you to relax in the quiet atmosphere.

Family portraits, stags’ heads, colonial artefacts and a beautiful collection of shells and coral decorate the 7 rooms.  Desert Island discs can be played on the gramophone or shift to more modern tunes on the CD player.  The main house has an air of tranquillity, whilst friends or teenagers can enjoy their own adventure in the pool or garden chalets.

The tropical gardens encircle the house with dainty frangipani trees and vivid Romiods highlighting the lush foliage. The 15m infinity pool glistens next to the pavilion, allowing guests to dip and doze as they wish.  Wander to the foot of the garden and discover the secluded beach via the secret gate.  Boogie-boarding in the morning before breakfast is a real wake-up call, whilst crimson velvet sunsets flood the imagination.  For the less active guest, the enchanting library will beckon.

 

 Highs
 

 Lows

  • Delicious meals - let local seafood and 'western inspiration' whet the palate 
     
  • The clam spaghetti and white wine garlic sauce was divine.
     
  • Complete relaxation and privacy but with friendly neighbouring villas should you like to socialise.
     
  • Tangalle has some of the best, quiet and wide sandy beaches on the island - untouched by commercialism.
  • The sea air has tarnished the white walls and shiny picture frames and some of the furniture is in need of refurbishing. The Refurbishment programme begun in Novemeber 2004 should have  restored the House to its former glory.
     
  • The beach is occasionally dirty in the summer months when the beach cleaners are less diligent.
     
  • Red ants are very common in Tangalle and have a nasty bite. The odd cockroach will make an appearance - but you are in a tropical country.
