Tamarind Hill is an impeccable, colonial-style boutique offering located just a mile from the historic city of Galle with its attractive buildings, thriving cultural scene and countless places to eat, drink and shop. The property resides in a 19th Century building which once belonged to a British admiral. Lovingly preserved and dotted with charming colonial features and furniture, this sleek and sophisticated hotel offers high levels of comfort and excellent service and is within easy reach of a huge variety of activities.
There are 10 bedrooms and 2 suites, all very spacious and finely appointed with luxury furnishings, fittings and amenities. The rooms exude elegance and tranquillity and are a haven of peace and quiet. There are three room categories: Crayford Rooms, Captain Suites and Admiral Suites. Amenities common to all three categories include a rain shower, a separate bath, a king size bed with luxury bedding, minibar, an LED TV and a selection of complimentary toiletries.
Seafood delicacies, grilled classics and international dishes are served in the restaurant which operates on an ‘any time, any place’ system affording guests freedom in relation to preferred dining times and locations; meals are not only served in the restaurant, but also beside the pool or in the courtyard. There’s a fully stocked bar with a wide variety of drinks on offer, as well as a breezy, open air lounge area where teas are served. Other on-site facilities include the spa and the excellent pool, which is surrounded by lush greenery and has plenty of lounge chairs for anyone looking to unwind in the sunshine. On site activities include cookery demonstrations and private dining experiences and there’s a great deal to do nearby including cycling tours, kayaking trips, diving and snorkelling, whale watching (seasonal) and visits to nearby villages, tea plantations and the Kanneliya Rainforest. Not to mention, of course, the UNESCO world heritage site Galle Fort which is about 20 minutes away.

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
Fiona and Kevin
