The Wallawwa

Tranquil and isolated

Nestled along the heart of the west coast, set back within beautiful tropical gardens is this stunning boutique property known for its colonial style and outstanding service. A mere 15 minutes from the airport, The Wallawwa hotel is the most ideal place for a pre or post tour stay. 

With only 18 bedrooms, a rich heritage including being part of the RAF's WWII headquarters and listed as one of the best 100 hotels in the world, this property is so much more than a hotel. Indulge at the Z Spa with an extensive list of signature treatments, dine at the open air Verandah restaurant with cuisine sourced from their organic gardens, or venture further out to the nearby hotspots of Negombo and Colombo.
