Thalpe Beach, one of the most elegant and fashionable resorts in the South Coast of Sri Lanka, located 8 km south of the historic Galle Fort. It is a small, intimate bay of golden sands fringed by coconut palms and turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. The beach is secluded, yet only a short distance from the historic Galle Fort, the UNESCO World Heritage site. The property is an intimate, elegant beach sanctuary offering sun, sand, trees, and culinary, sensuous and spiritual indulgences. It is an improbable juxtaposition of simplicity and luxury overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean.
