The Colony-Tangalle Sri Lanka

Overview of The Colony-Tangalle

The Colony has a tranquil feel that is instantly inviting. It is elegantly furnished with antiques, paintings and a gentle infusion of colour. The beach directly below the Colony offers safe swimming during peak season only (Dec-March). But just four kms away is the more placid Seenimodara (Sugar Bay), one of the finest crescent-shaped beaches in the island. The owners of The Colony have a ten-acre estate leading off this beach, which guests are welcome to use as a base for swimming and relaxation.

The Colony is a renovated colonial beach house perched above the Indian Ocean to the west of Tangalle, one of the most picturesque sections of the south coast. Tangalle is about two hours beyond the historic city of Galle and is an ideal base to explore the south’s beautiful beaches, abundant wildlife and fascinating heritage. The journey from Katunayake Airport will take about six hours, traffic permitting. You may also consider taking the Air Taxi which lands in Dickwella, just 20 minutes drive from the villa.
