Guest reviews for Talalla Retreat

Everyone (1)
2 out of 5

Overpriced & extreamly pretentious

Relaxing atmosphere and the staff were excellent, as is standard for the whole of Sri Lanka. However the rooms are so open to the elements that we had multiple lizards crawling along the bed frame and woke up to people peering in at us from their balcony. Along with this the food and related activities are rediculously overpriced for what they are.
