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.

The space

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.

Footprints Villa was an amazing experience from the moment we checked in. Keerthi and Latha were extremely hospitable hosts and made us feel right at home! The meals they provided were out of this world, consisting of Sri Lankan curries, homemade roti, and fresh curd with honey. It was truly some of the best food we've ever eaten! The house was spectacular; clean, neat, and beautifully decorated. It was the perfect place for a family get away and we were very sad to have to return home. It truly is a day in paradise every day in this villa. Thank you to our hosts for a beautiful stay and for the wonderful memories. We will certainly recommend this property to our other friends and family!

We rented the whole villa for 10 days - right on the ocean with a good pool. We were looked after very well and made the most of being able to have good meals cooked for us. We were a family of 8 adults and 1 small child. Bedrooms (all ensuites) were quite spacious. Living areas were comfortable. It is actually better than the photos.

Footprints Villa is conveniently located in a nice secluded beach area in Talpe. I was there for a family reunion and Keerthi was very pleasant and easy to deal with as a caretaker/cook. The property did have some minor maintenance problems (doors were hard to lock and the fridge wasn't fully operational on the first day). The beach right in front of the Villa is decent but you can find better beaches if you take a nice walk. Overall, it was a nice stay (we really enjoyed the decor).

Keerthi and Latha were fantastic hosts, organising transport and anything else we needed help with. The house is as described and even nicer than it looks in the pictures. There is an excellent chilled vibe, with great beach (with turtles) at the rear and supermarket across from the entrance. The breakfast was excellent, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, juices, bread toast, eggs. Would definitely recommend you try Latha's home cooked dinner, we had incredible fish and it was great value. Amazing stay and thank you to Keerthi and Latha. Would definitely stay here again.

We a party of 11 people (4 couples and 3) and even though we arrived in 2 separate groups due to different travel timings we were welcomed to footprints villa warmly. Throughout the 2 nights spent there the food prepared was very nice and served outside with the cooling sea breeze. The staff are attentive while giving space for the privacy of the tenants. All in all it was a wonderful stay in an extremely beautiful place.

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.
