    This is a charming boutique hotel down a back lane not far from Beira Lake. Service was attentive and there was always someone on hand to look after us. . Fantastic breakfast on terrace. Watched afternoon college cricket from the terrace, walked via the lake to have cocktails at Galle Face hotel then dined on newspaper-covered tables at the adjacent green. The welcome at Taru was lovely, and the rooms were excellent. Big comfy beds, spacious, and good air conditioning. One of our rooms had a lovely small garden area. Lots of water supplied and the staff were very attentive without being overbearing. Mozzies in room so be prepared with a room spray and personal spray
