Sielen Diva is a stylish boutique haven by the golden beaches of Thalpe, a laidback beach town just a short drive from the popular tourist hotspot Galle Fort. With tasteful artistic décor, a tranquil atmosphere and stunning sea views, this seven-bedroom hotel offers travelers an idyllic beach escape within easy reach of the region’s best experiences, from whale watching in Mirissa to cycling through Galle’s inland countryside.
The hotel has been cleverly designed so that the glorious ocean vistas can be enjoyed from each room and the infinity pool, with the rooms boasting floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of this beautiful backdrop. The large garden is another highlight, offering lawn games, quiet corners with sun loungers, a sun terrace for evening cocktails and direct beach access. Children and adults alike will love the games room, decked out with a TV and DVDs, pool table, foosball and dart board, or you may choose instead to read one of the 250 books available in the cosy library. A variety of activities are on offer in addition to all this, including yoga and in-room massages (organised on request) and mask-making tutorials.
