    Our opinion

    The Beach House is a homely villa in a lovely, secluded spot, looking onto a quiet, white sand beach – a truly stunning setting. Good for families and groups of friends.

    Hotel description

    The Beach House is a private 5-bedroomed villa with direct access onto one of the finest beaches in the Indian Ocean, near Tangalle on Sri Lanka’s ‘Deep South’ coast. Offering barefoot luxury, the comfortable and homely Beach House was once the tropical retreat of American artist, Douglas Johnson, who picked this spot for its peaceful seclusion and its divine natural beauty. The main house sits alongside two separate chalets and a tranquil swimming pool in the tropical garden, shaded by tall coconut palms. Five en-suite bedrooms, many with outdoor bathrooms offer dreamy nights for guests, while a staff of four provide discreet and friendly service. Tasty meals are prepared by the Beach House chef - guests choose from a menu and give the staff money to go and buy the food locally. The lounge is filled with sinking sofas, intriguing artefacts and shelves of fascinating books. For those wishing to venture further than the ocean on your doorstep, day trips can easily be made to the national park at Uda Walawe, neighbouring rock temples, turtle hatcheries, bird sanctuaries and vibrant local markets.

    The Beach House Tangalle can only be booked as a whole villa, though individual rooms can possibly be booked in the off-peak season upon request.
