Wallawwa, Colombo

Deluxe - ££££


An award-winning country house hotel full of surprises, the Wallawwa is the perfect place to start or end a Sri Lankan adventure.

The Wallawwa hotel is in a very convenient spot close to Bandaranaike International Airport, but it’s so much more than just an airport hotel. It actually enjoys a peaceful rural location, nestled among pretty tropical gardens. A stunning jungle pool is tucked away among the palms, ideal for a cool dip or stretching out on a lounger to catch some rays.

Another surprise here at this lovingly restored 200-year-old manor house is the luxurious Z Spa, which oozes both style and serenity. You’ll also love the upscale Verandah restaurant and bar, which serves heavenly gourmet dishes from ingredients sourced from the Wallawwa’s own kitchen gardens.

You’ll be just 30 minutes from the sights and sounds of Colombo here at the Wallawwa, but you’ll feel a whole world away.


There are 17 thoughtfully decorated rooms and suites at the Wallawwa hotel, all of which offer free Wi-Fi, flatscreen satellite TVs and complimentary toiletries. Some of the best rooms have wonderful garden views, and all are blissfully quiet and private.

The hotel itself has a stone-lined, tree-fringed pool, tucked away out of sight of other guests. There’s also a spa specialising in invigorating sandalwood and coconut scrubs, along with a restaurant, library, shop and two-acres of lush green gardens.

Why we love it

It’s wonderfully peaceful at this charming country house hotel, but you’re also so close to Colombo, the airport and everywhere else you need to be. It really does offer the best of both worlds, and does it in true style.
