The Wallawwa

At a Glance

Despite it being a 15-minute taxi ride from Sri Lanka’s main international airport, The Wallawwa is anything but a traditional airport hotel.

Set in five acres of 200-year-old manicured tropical gardens, this chic boutique bolthole offers a luxurious stay in a completely secluded location.

This exquisitely renovated colonial manor house offers stay in beautifully appointed rooms and suites, a garden-wrapped Indian-tiled swimming pool, a library, a decadent spa, a fruit and vegetable garden and a top-rate restaurant.

Staffing is first class and teams of butlers tend to guests in the traditional way.

Its magical setting also makes The Wallawwa an idyllic tropical wedding venue.


There are 17 beautifully furnished bedrooms and suites at the hotel, with a range of amenities to suit any guest. The Mountbatten Suite comes with its own private plunge pool and private garden.

The Verandah, which has an amazing Asia a la carte menu, is a restaurant that overlooks the hotel’s beautiful gardens. The hotel is family friendly and can provide a children’s menu on request, as well as a vegetarian menu and caters to all dietary requirements.


The Wallawwa has numerous facilities, including a library, a study, a shop and a variety of board and larger games. The large swimming pool is surrounded by lush trees and sits in a tranquil corner of the tropical gardens.  Guests can enjoy an abundance of treatments at the ‘Z’ Spa and it is the perfect place to unwind before or after a long journey.
