      We stayed two nights at the Master Bedroom (sea-view and private plunge-pool) with our 2.5 year old. The room together with the bathroom, plunge pool, private dining and lounge area was massive. The is a lovely view of the immaculate lawn, beach and sea from the bed. The property has extensive lawns at the front and rear as well as a sandy beach area within the fence. There's also access from the garden to the 'Tangalle Social' bar/restaurant/hotel which has a slightly hipper and modern vibe. All the staff were excellent and met all our demands related to our toddler without any fuss (special meals, warm bottle of milk ready early in the morning etc.). Another highlight was the food; all our meals and desserts were exceptional and served to our private dining area or room. As many people have mentioned, Mawella is a lovely beach and has a wild and local feel to it. Go before its inevitably (over) developed. We will certainly be back with family to try the standalone villas.

      A slice of paradise just a few improvements needed!”

      Mawella beach where Taru Villas is situated is the most stunning beach you’ll find! Long, wide, clean and sandy with no one other than fishermen, the odd other guest and some friendly dogs. It’s perfect and the sea is warm and swimmable. Taru villas is a lovely boutique hotel which has been beautifully decorated, we had a garden view room but I would recommend either of the sea view rooms if I were to return. The whole place is immaculate and the attention to detail is second to none. The quality and price of the food is very good, the breakfast is amazing, the only improvement with the food would be if you’re staying for a number of days the food for dinner becomes a little limited and I would recommend a smaller menu that changed daily or every other day to offer fresh variety. The staff were friendly and attentive they do just need to improve the level of service when you’re on the loungers at the beach as during our entire stay no one offered drinks or anything whilst we were there. One big disappointment for us was the WiFi. It’s shockingly bad and limited too! This was the only place we stayed in across the whole of Sri Lanka with terrible WiFi and made even worse by the fact it rarely worked and when it did was very slow and they charge you if you go over their capped amount! Completely ridiculous for a place aiming at a high end stay and resulted in issues for us when my partner still has to receive work emails abroad. This needs to be improved and an unlimited open approach in place and not token numbers per person with no real allowance or guests will not wish to stay longer than a day or two. Other than a few small improvements to compare it to other luxury resorts we have stayed in I would highly recommend staying in Taru Villas.

      Totally amazing experience which exceeded our expectations”

      We were blown away by the standard of accommodation and service at Taru Villas Mawella. The room and communal areas were well appointed and luxurious. Staff were genuinely welcoming and caring, and went out of their way to accommodate any special requirements. Could not fault their customer service and attentiveness. Food was excellent with a wide choice of local and international options. Reasonable walue for money. The location on the quiet beach was lovely and we were able to swim in the ocean. We had an incredible three night stay and would highly recommend the villa.

      Great location, excellent staff ”

      We've enjoyed Rock Villa by Taru in Bentota previously and is one of the best Boutique hotel we've been to. Taru's new addition in Tangalle maintains the effortlessly beautiful and relaxing atmosphere. The place is very new so the owner warned us that it's a work in progress with some areas for improvement in terms of finishing some of the rooms. Nevertheless, it was still a great stay, with the highlight being the helpful and courteous staff especially Chef Cha who was very accommodating and served up some great food. The Grilled Jumbo Prawns, Spanish Tortilla and full fat burger are recommended. The rooms aren't huge but super comfortable and spotlessly clean. There's a huge garden at the front with a pool and another garden at the rear to relax in and the secluded area means it's perfect to get away from it all.
