Country house hotel, re-imagined

Relax and de-compress at The Wallawwa, our 18 bedroom beautifully renovated country house hotel set amongst tropical gardens and just 15 minutes from Colombo airport or 30 minutes from downtown Colombo. Listed by Conde Nast as one of the top 100 hotels of the world 2015, it is the perfect start or end to any holiday in Sri Lanka.

Once the Head Chieftan of Galle’s country residence and formerly part of the RAF’s headquarters during WW2, the Wallawwa is now a retreat for tired and weary travelers, serving as the perfect staging post for a trip around Sri Lanka. With its signature Z Spa, wonderful Verandah restaurant with its own organic gardens, oversized suites and resplendent gardens the boutique hotel has become a trusted favorite to discerning tourists and locals alike for its levels of service, food and laid back atmosphere.
