From Ramparts to Cobblestoned Streets

Old World Charm

An island with a rich history from monarchical rule to colonial conquests, much of Sri Lanka is influenced by its past. Whether the old Galle Fort or the traditional walauwwa, those in love with history, will find a slice of heaven here. From cobblestoned streets that resemble an old European village to buildings and structures that will leave you in awe, discover the old world charm as you enjoy in the luxuries of your island holiday.

Taru Villas’ boutique properties are set in some of the most charming locations on the paradise isle, from the historic Galle Fort to Bentota, one of the oldest tourist beach towns.

Explore life within one of the world’s oldest living forts. Protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Galle Fort in Sri Lanka takes you back in time to when this old town was in the hands of conquerors, namely the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British. Built by the colonists, the Galle Fort is an eclectic combination of ancient old-world charm and vibrant modernism. Stroll through cobblestoned streets as this fort comes to life or walk along the ramparts for endless views of the Indian Ocean.

Our villas are also treasures from the past. From Rock Villa in Bentota to Riva in Negombo. Restored manor houses, also known as ‘walauwwas’ are the perfect way to truly appreciate the old world charm of Sri Lanka. From large courtyards and gardens to vintage furnishings and more, stay at our most ancient properties during your holiday with us. Our villas are equipped with modern amenities and creature comforts, so that even as you immerse in the rich history, everything that you require is at your fingertips.

Taru Villas invites you to experience the Old World Charm of Sri Lanka, to immerse and appreciate in the rustic beauty of all that has made Sri Lanka, a tropical paradise.
