Located along Galle’s ‘French Riviera’ of Talpe, Ishq Talpe less than two hours from Colombo’s international airport, Ishq Talpe is a true tropical paradise, placing you close to the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
Talpe is a coastal town on the southwestern tip of Sri Lanka. Ishq Talpe sits on a quiet stretch of beach, with an active coral reef that can be explored during the season. Sea turtles congregate to feast in front of the villa in the early hours of the morning and are seen again around 4.30pm every evening.
During the season from November to April, a hundred meter walk along the beach on either side of the villa offers natural pools for swimming. The best swimmable beach in the area is Wijaya beach, a 4-minute drive (1.2km) from the villa. For surfing enthusiasts, the
closest surf breaks include Unawatuna (10-minute drive; 4km), Kabalana (15-minute drive; 9km), Dewata (15-minute drive; 6km) and Weligama (30-minute drive; 20km).
Inland Talpe is as diverse as its rich waters and will take you through tea plantations, paddy cultivations, villages, lakes, local markets, and ancient temples. The area also has an interesting selection of bars, restaurants, and cafes.

An exclusive beachfront residence
Ishq Talpe is a family owned, informal and bespoke luxury villa set in a remarkable location on the quiet coastline of Talpe. The villa takes its name from the Arabic word for love and passion. This beautiful 5-bedroom villa first came to life in the 1990s, a part of the original fabric of the island’s first luxury villas designed by renowned architect, the late Bruce Fell-Smith. Today, the villa marries a love for clean design with oceanic hues and brings together all the comforts of a boutique hotel with the privacy and exclusivity of a private villa.
Expect characteristics of colonial Dutch heritage, high ceilings, airy spaces in bedrooms and common areas, large king-sized beds for deep slumbers, and low-slung chairs by the courtyard pool for sunbathing. Therapeutic evening massages on the lawn and lazy swims are the perfect activity for taking in the gorgeous Indian Ocean sunsets. Meals feature fabulous Sri Lankan and international cuisine highlighting fresh seafood and locally grown produce, whilst the well-stocked games and movie room is an ideal hangout for families and children.
The 5-bedroom villa can accommodate a maximum of 14 guests (including children) and 2 baby cots. The composition of each room is as follows –
• Room 101 : Garden Suite (01 x King Size Bed & 01 x Single Bed)
• Room 102 : Garden Family Suite (01 x King Size Bed & 03 x Single Beds)
• Room 103 : Garden Suite (01 x King Size Bed)
• Room 104 : Ocean Suite (01 x King Size Bed with en-suite Jacuzzi)
• Room 105 : Master Suite (01 x King Size Bed)
Reservations at the villa are on Bed and Breakfast basis. All other meals will be served and charged for accordingly from the à la carte menu. The menus offer an array of options from Sri Lankan to International cuisine featuring fresh fish and seafood. All dietary requirements can be catered to - including gluten and vegan meals - and our in-house chefs are flexible with creating dishes off the menu. Pork is not offered at the villa. BBQs can be arranged in the garden overlooking the ocean, and will be charged separately. Packed or picnic meals can be provided to guests when venturing out during the day. The villa does not have a liquor license. Guests are encouraged to bring their own liquor which the team will be happy to chill and serve. There will be no corkage fee.
