A ten minute drive from Galle Fort brings you to the tranquil Thalpe beach, where you will find this spacious five bedroom villa. Our staffed villa comes with a pool and a beachfront garden, that provides the perfect blend of peace, sun and the sea.
Footprints is a new state of the art luxury 5 bedroom villa, finished to the highest modern standards. This extremely spacious villa (7,800 Sq ft) is situated on one of Sri Lanka’s most famous beaches in Thalpe, just ten minutes’ drive from Galle Fort, in the south of the island. Footprints is a luxurious property designed in a contemporary style and lavished with exquisite décor, allowing visitors to enjoy tropical living at its best.
The villa consists of four well-appointed double en-suite bedrooms on the 2nd floor within close proximity to one another and a 5th double en-suite bedroom on the 3rd floor. All rooms are air-conditioned.
The ground floor consists of a large open-plan living and dining space comfortably furnished to impeccable standards. It has a modern kitchen complete with dish washer, fridge, freezer and cooking equipment. On this floor you will also find a TV and games room, as well as a powder room. The glass fronted living room leads to the swimming pool, outdoor dining terrace and garden. Take a few short steps and you will find yourself on a stunning tropical beach. Just a 100m walk down the beach you will find a natural rock pool where many of the residents have enjoyed a quiet time in the sea. The second floor has a unique Moroccan lounge and study area – a place where you can chill out on a rainy afternoon. This floor also contains a fully equipped laundry room and terrace. The Upper level consists of a sun terrace from which you can watch the sunset that Sri Lanka is famous for or take in exceptional views of the Indian Ocean.
The villa is staffed with a cook and two butlers who will be happy to attend to all guest needs. Breakfast is included within the room rates provided. For any other meals guests can either purchase the food and have it prepared by the staff at the villa, or guests can simply provide the meal preferences in which case the staff will go out and purchase fresh produce as per the guests’ dietary requirements. In the case of the latter we will require the guests to reimburse the staff for the cost of the ingredients purchased at the end of the stay.
The villa offers free wifi in the rooms as well as in all public areas of the property. Services such as free parking, laundry services as well as items required for infants such as a baby feeding chair and a cot is available free of charge.

My husband and I are the new owners of this family run villa. We love to host people, travel (as the decor in Footprints shows) and we love good food. Having grown up in Sri Lanka, and traveled throughout the island, we have a love of sharing our island- so make sure you ask for suggestions of places to explore.
