If you’ve never watched ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’, not much will be making sense so far. This is a journey of a surfer who once upon a time was terrified of sharks, but with the help of Talalla Surf Camp has become a fully-stoked surfer.…

It still remains relatively undiscovered; drawing those who really want to connect with the authenticity of a place, rather than the shoestring guide version. Our favourite wellness retreat was designed by…

As we casually march through the third month of the year at Talalla Retreat, we can’t help but notice that troops of monkeys are playing high in the Sri Lankan treetops. Peacocks are grazing the clouds as they perch before our yoga shala. And we keep finding the chipmunks swimming in the coconut water. Maybe you’d like to see the performance for yourself? Treat yourself to a recharging getaway on an untouched beach paradise: read on to see what’s happening…
