Built over 200 years ago in the traditional ‘Dutch warehouse’ design, wallawwa is one of the oldest manor houses in the province and not your typical Colombo airport hotel. The ancestral home, 15 min drive from Sri Lanka’s main international airport is a luxurious private hideaway, a perfect stopover for a beginning or an end of a holiday to Sri lanka.
Standing on a completely secluded location, this award-winning 18-bedroom country house is designed around a central courtyard pool, with spacious interiors, columned walkways and tropical gardens. The Verandah is the resort restaurant serving a la carte Asian fusion cuisine at tables looking out over the 200-year old tropical gardens.
Eighteen stylishly furnished rooms, including two family suites and a luxurious two-bedroom suite with pool, promise beautiful garden views, lavish furnishings and modern amenities. The rooms and suites blend the old and new with elegant interiors, four-poster beds, antiques features such as vintage phones yet all fused with contemporary touches of bold prints and modern comforts.
The Wallawwa’s quiet rural location is a sublime place to rest and recuperate for a few nights before or after your flight. It’s tempting to stay put, straying no further than the hotel’s gorgeous garden and pool, or perhaps indulging in a Sri Lankan cookery demonstration with our chefs, yet the region’s diverse sights and activities could keep you busy for days.
This enchanting retreat promises a stylish and serene alternative to the hotels in close to the airport with charming 18-bedroom country house design, delectable gourmet cuisine, rejuvenating jungle pool, and heavenly spa just a short 15min away from the airport.
