Tangaroa, The Teak House

Nestled on a hilltop in the midst of a lush, tropical garden and immaculately kept coconut plantation, The Teak House is one of Sri Lanka's South Coast's most romantic and serene villa hideaways. If you are seeking complete privacy or even solitude within moments of an unspoilt Indian Ocean beach, The Teak House offers luxury and privacy in equal measure.

From its elevated position overlooking Seenimodera beach, the villa's vast bedrooms and open plan living benefit from the constant breezes coming from the Indian Ocean below. Hidden from view, the villa, constructed entirely of teak - one of Sri Lanka's sustainable hardwoods - is relaxed and ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Renowned as one of the Sri Lanka's most picturesque and unspoilt sandy beaches, Seenimodera offers safe swimming all year round and incomparable walking. Stroll across to neighbouring Mahawella beach, a horseshoe shaped bay of over 3 km, long celebrated by CN Traveller magazine.
If you are tired of lying in a hammock or fed up of boogie boarding in the Indian Ocean, you can reach the following diversions with great ease:

Mulgirigalla Rock Temple
Situated 35 minutes north of Tangalle, Mulgirigalla is a monastic site on an isolated 210m-high rock which rises almost vertically out of the surrounding forest. The rock was the site of an important discovery of the ola-leaf scripts discovered in the 19th century. These scripts offered a key to the translation of Sri Lanka's most informative ancient text, the Mahavamsa.

Turtle Watching at Rekawa and Turtle Conservation Project
Just 30 minutes east of Tangalle, Rekawa is renowned for its long, undisturbed beaches and mangrove skirted lagoons. The beach near Rekawa is one of Sri Lanka's most important marine turtle nesting sites where five of the world's seven species of marine turtle come ashore to nest throughout the year.

Bundala National Park
Located 75 minutes east of Tangalle, this area of open scrub around the coast offers great opportunities for bird-watching (with around 150 reported species) and the occasional sighting of elephants and crocodiles. The salt pans attract a vast number of migratory shore birds, making this 6,216 hectare park one of the most important wetlands in Sri Lanka. The best time to visit Bundala is between November and March when the winter migratory birds arrive. Numerous grey langur monkeys populate the larger trees and in the scrub jungle you may also come across jackals, hares and spotted deer.

Uda Walawe National Park
Situated 90 minutes northeast of Tangalle, this is one of the island's most popular national parks totalling 30,800 hectares in size and bordering a reservoir. It is best known for its elephants (estimated to number around 400, including six tuskers) and bird-watching opportunities. It is primarily open parkland traversed by a main river and numerous streams which makes elephant sightings particularly accessible. Often the pachyderms can be seen in herds of up to 100 or more.

Yala National Park
Some two hours east of Tangalle, Yala National Park is world renowned as one of the best parks to observe and photograph leopards. Although it has one of the world's densest leopard populations, it still requires good luck to see one of the elusive creatures in its natural habitat.
