Tamba Villas Thalpe, a collection of 37 luxury villas, is the collaborative vision of Eduard Hempel and Shakticola. Together they have put in place a top-class team for the creation of a beautiful estate, with cultivated waterways and landscaped tropical gardens.

Eduard Hempel has been living and working in Real Estate in the Galle area since 2003, and has a wealth of experience in creating and developing successful real-estate projects in Sri Lanka. Trevor Morgan runs Shakticola, a design and project management company based in Galle which is responsible for some of the most high-end, luxury villas and boutique hotels along the south coast of Sri Lanka.

Exclusivity and privacy are what makes Tamba Villas an exceptional residence in one of the most sought after areas in the south of Sri Lanka, Thalpe.

Tamba Villas Thalpe will be an exclusive estate, with cultivated waterways and landscaped tropical gardens in a harmonious and stunning location. Secluded from the hustle and bustle, yet only footsteps to the golden sands of Thalpe beaches and the Indian Ocean.

This very private development, which is scheduled to open in 2021, will be set back less than 300 metres from Thalpe beach and will be surrounded by lush natural tropical gardens, rippling ponds and swaying tall palm trees.

Each villa will be built to the highest standard – combining the heritage of Sri Lanka, colonial architecture, with modern and contemporary, luxury facilities. Attention to detail is minutiae with selected customisations available to ensure your villa is perfectly tailored to you.

Situated just 8km along the coastal road from grocery shops and local amenities, and only 10km from the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Galle Fort. The location is simply exceptional.


These exclusive villas have been created to provide a private, luxurious and social environment. Perfect as an investment, personal purchase or both.

The Southern Sri Lankan coastline, an exclusive stretch along the Indian Ocean, is dotted with stylish boutique hotels, noteworthy restaurants and private luxury villas.

The city of Galle undoubtedly boasts a history second to no other city in the country, making it one of the most liveable cities in Sri Lanka. Thalpe, a niche area in the Galle district, offers access to “golden mile” beaches, luxury boutique villas, intimate restaurants, yoga retreats and a quiet, quality lifestyle away from the City.

With Cinnamon Air now flying from Colombo airport to Koggala Lake in just 70 minutes, it has never been easier to own your piece of paradise.
