The Wallawwa, Sri Lanka
Hidden amongst three acres of beautifully manicured gardens on the outskirts of Colombo you will find The Wallawwa - an old colonial manor house that has been lovingly resorted and transformed into a 18 bedroom boutique hotel. Just 15 minutes from the international airport, the property couldn’t be better located as a first or last night stop-over for those with flights departing early or arriving late.
Colonial yet contemporary, you are sure to dream easy during your stay at The Wallawwa. We love the Garden Suites for their privacy, large bathrooms and outside comfy seating areas. For those simply looking for somewhere to rest weary heads for a few hours before an onward journey, opt for one of the two Wallawwa Bedrooms in the main house. Little ones are also welcome at The Wallawwa, and will be more than happy in the spacious family suites, which sleep two adults and two children, plus an infant too if need be.
This is no ordinary ‘airport’ hotel. The hotels restaurant ‘The Verandah’, offers a mouth watering all day a la carte menu of Asian Fusion and international cuisine. Kids have a menu of their own and the chefs can cater to any dietary requirements or allergies.
If you can peel yourself away from your poolside position or shady reading spot in The Wallawwa gardens, the hotel is brilliantly located for a number of day trips. Colombo city centre is around 30 minutes away, for dining, shopping and visiting some of the many cultural sites. Alternatively, hop in a taxi and head to the beachside town of Negombo for that first or last dip in the Indian Ocean or to experience the sites and smells of the famous Negombo fish market.
What better beginning or end could you have to your holiday than a signature massage from The Wallawwa’s exclusive ‘Z’ Spa. Maggie and her team have a wealth of experience in many types of massage and treatments. Guests can also join early morning yoga or mediation with Maggie if they so wish!
