The rooms and property as a whole are absolutely beautiful. It is like a peaceful little garden sanctuary. We arrived late at night and the property was perfect for us as it was close to the airport. The next day we went for a little explore in Colombo city and it was wonderful to be able to return to our peaceful little hideaway at the Wallawwa afterwards. The pool was beautiful and relaxing, and the staff all friendly and very attentive. I would absolutely recommend this place to my family and friends as your first stop after arriving in Sri Lanka.
Wonderful colonial era retreat only 15 mins from the airport. Exceptional setting, delicious food (both dinner and breakfast) and obliging staff who were always friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this little piece of heaven.
That we didn’t stay longer!
We arrived a few days after the awful acts of terrorism, slightly nervous, to find that the Sri Lankan government were taking extraordinary lengths to ensure the safety of its citizens and visitors. We felt safe at all times. And everyone we encountered could not have been more accommodating. Our stay at The Wallawwa more than met our expectations and was a perfect introduction to Sri Lankan people, history, culture, environment and cuisine. Thank you to all the staff.
We didn’t like that so many guests had cancelled their stay and missed out on what we enjoyed. Hopefully people will very quickly rebook.
A place of peace and tranquility a short distance from the airport.. perfect to relax in stylish and comfortable surroundings. The menu had a good selection of dishes local, international and pizzas.. we particularly liked the curries with a selection of delicious vegetables mostly grown in the hotel garden. We will definitely return
We couldn’t fault anything.. great customer service and focus on ensuring we had the best experience during our stay
More than 100 dollars taxes on top rate 370 dollars too expensive
