The Wallawwa
save place
Lavish colonial pile

The short jaunt to the airport may be handy, but The Wallawwa boutique hotel near Colombo is so much more than a pre- or post-flight crash pad. Basking in its pindrop-peaceful rural setting and lovingly tended tropical gardens, the Wallawwa is a super-sensitive restoration of a 200-year-old manor house, where graceful original features have been spiced up with luxuriant interiors and a lush-as-you-like spa.

Bibliophiles will find plenty of joy in the cabinets of prized old books in the library, carefully chosen by the property’s owner. The hotel shop sells one-of-a-kind souvenirs, which you can feel good about buying as all profits go to local charities.
