I couldn’t recommend this hotel enough. The staff were lovely, the pool was just the right temperature with places to sit and lounge in the sun and shade against the backdrop of the roaring waves. The breakfast was top quality, both the Sri Lankan and the other cooked breakfast options. There are only 5 rooms in the hotel so it felt very tranquil and never any competition to use the gym, pool table or get the best loungers. Conveniently located between Galle, Mirissa and Weligama beach.

This was a holiday to remember. There were 8 of us that stayed as a family and booked the whole villa. The villa is beautiful and so is the location. The staff were out of this world - so attentive but never in the way. We thoroughly recommend this place for families or large groups. The food from the kitchen team is also amazing. All the best there!

Great location, excellent menu choice with superb food and amazing presentation. Stunning Sea views with plenty of outdoor spaces and a refreshing tranquil pool. The aroma of Frangipani fills the air from the beautiful Frangipani garden. The suites are large and plenty of space. The large bed and bed linen are soft and extremely comfortable. The staff are totally professional and will ensure you have a wonderful stay at Elysium. A true gem on the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka.

The whole experience was just outstanding. The room, the service and the food, (oh my god the food) was exceptional. Friendly staff could not do enough for us and took care of us discreetly. The pool and garden are very well maintained and the place is just a little bit of paradise.

We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful villa, everything was pure perfection. The villa is beautifully designed and utterly captivating, the staff so friendly and attentive. The food was great, especially the prawn dumplings which we ate at every meal! Even during the off season the sea was stunning and we managed to have a dip almost right outside the villa. Can’t recommend it enough for a magical break!

I’m so pleased we decided to book with Elysium. After lots of research, Elysium definitely stood out, but as it wasn’t central I was unsure. We went ahead and booked and it was definitely worth every penny, if anything it felt good value for money. We don’t tend to eat where we’re staying either, but the tuna fish steak sandwich I had there was the best fish I had on the whole 2 week trip and the breakfasts really were special too. Especially if you branch out of your normal egg dish and into the coconut curry and hoppers. They were so good the chef even sent me the recipe for me to take home. Very impressed, also lovely to meet the owner. I will recommend you to friends!

Beautiful serene location with excellent hospitality - a place you will want to return to year after year! We were a family of 4 staying in the family suite - perfect size - for 10 days. The property is immaculately cared for with pool, garden, and beach just beyond the property. The quality of the furnishings is high-end and no detail is overlooked. Mark and his entire staff are super friendly and attentive, but at the same time never in the way or "too close". They really pampered us! Looking forward to vacationing there again!

This is a delightful property in a quiet beachfront setting but within easy tuktuk distance of beautiful Galle. There are just 5 rooms and ours was very spacious and comfortable, with all the amenities you would expect. The pool area and garden are lovely, but what we most appreciated was the excellent and charming service. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the wonderful staff. Our breakfasts were delicious and we also had a couple of delicious dinners prepared by the in-house chef. On one occasion we requested a whole fish (not on the menu) which he bought for us and prepared to perfection.

We had a family reunion with nine adults and a baby at the beautiful setting of Elysium in Thalpe. Each of the five generously-sized rooms (including one large family suite) is tastefully designed and includes an outdoor courtyard with shower. Having different lounge areas, a gym, pool table, sunset deck and large garden, the property is completely secure while offering every guest their own space. Directly located on a quiet beach, it is family friendly for making sand castles and finding fish among the rock pools. The team on site are incredibly accommodating, going the extra mile to meet a guest’s needs, and they serve an excellent array of international dishes. From Chinese dumplings to Moroccan chicken to traditional Sri Lankan breakfasts, the food was fabulous. Elysium is only 15-minutes’ drive from the Galle Fort and a 10-minute walk to Wijeya Beach for sea swimming, making it a convenient spot to explore Sri Lanka’s golden mile.
