See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Apa Villa Thalpe

Just five miles from the UNESCO fortress port of Galle, Apa Thalpe is located right on the beach.

There are just seven suites housed in three villas - Cinnamon, Cardamon and Safron - and suites can be rented individually, or the villas as a whole. The rooms are simply decorated but have spacious living areas and spectacular views looking out to the infinity pool and sea.

Breakfast is served on the private veranda of your suite, and is a mix of Sri Lankan delicacies and international fare. Lunch and dinner can be eaten anywhere, from the beach deck to the shade of the coconut palms on the beach. Guests can also use the restaurant at the hotel's sister property, Apa Villa Illuketia, a few miles inland.

Many guests choose simply to relax on the beach or by the pool, but watersports are available on the nearby beaches of Unawatuna and Mirissa. Other activities include sailing, surfing, fishing, sea kayaking and snorkelling.

Why We Love It

This is one of the best places to see the iconic Sri Lankan stilt fishermen at work.
