Lovely stay!
Lovely place and a very beautiful room, villa and pool area. Really enjoyed the breakfast with a big selection of eggs, juice and so on. The sri lankan omelette was really good, and the service at the restaurant was eccelent! I would definitely stay at Tamarind again. On the minus side, the nearest beach was pretty ruff, but a 15 min tuk-tuk ride takes you to the lovely Unawatuna beach.

Lovely little hotel minutes from Galle Fort
We stayed four nights at the Tamarind Hill and the room, restaurant and gardens were fantastic. They have a lovely swimming pool in the garden but could do with getting rid of the cumbersome daybeds and replacing them with a few more sun longers plus parasols that can be moved more easily as there is very little shade while at the pool. Otherwise, the staff were lovely, the food excellent(breakfast and dinner - try the curry!), rooms nicely appointed and the hotel positioned just five minutes by tuk tuk from Galle Fort. Breakfast on the terrace (a la carte which was a lovely change from the usual buffets) with the local peacock displaying his feathers is a setting that would be hard to match anywhere!

Tamarind Hill Ooz with Class
One word to describe this hotel- Class. We miss the lovely rabbits in the garden, they are so adorable.

A true Sri Lankan gem.
The rooms are both beautiful and tranquil (and the a/c created perfect air both in temperature and quality - it actually inhales like fresh air: a unique and very appreciated outcome when it's very hot and extremely humid outside the door!). Each of our rooms had their own mini (fully private) courtyards and, as for the ensuites, the almost 'outdoor' shower set-up was fabulous! Note: Our party travelled as 3 colleagues with 3 rooms which caused the only hiccup: Hotels.com couldn't make the booking on-line however the Call Centre assisted quickly and cleanly.
