The Wallawwa is a beautifully restored 200-year old manor house set in five acres of lush tropical garden.
This private hideaway, part of the Teardrop hotel group, retains the ambience of a colonial manor house with modern amenities, indulgent luxury and excellent personal service.
Only 20 minutes from Colombo Airport this luxurious hotel is a perfect place to stay for a night or two at the start or end of your holiday, and it can also be a wonderful addition to any Sri Lanka itinerary.
Although it is located close to the airport, it is a tranquil retreat which is completely hidden away and it is a lovely place to escape, unwind and relax.
This stylish boutique hotel has 18 spacious rooms and suites, all of which have a private veranda with views of the immaculate gardens.
The rooms offer traditional and modern comforts and have been beautifully designed with plenty of modern conveniences.
The hotel also has an Indian-tiled swimming pool surrounded by exotic trees and plants, a library, a luxurious spa, a fruit and vegetable garden, and a fantastic restaurant which serves delicious Asian and international meals.
In a nod to Sri Lanka’s colonial past, complimentary afternoon tea is served at 3.30pm every day - you can choose from a selection of Ceylonese teas and freshly made cakes and scones, and you can enjoy your high tea either on the wicker chairs on the lawn or the shady veranda.
