The Wallawwa is not your typical Colombo airport hotel. Set in 200-year-old tropical gardens just 15-minutes’ drive from Sri Lanka’s main international gateway, this award-winning 18-bedroom country house hotel with gourmet food, jungle pool and heavenly spa, carved out of an atmospheric 18th century manor house, exudes style and serenity. As an alternative to hotels in Negombo, The Wallawwa promises to start or end your Sri Lankan holiday in style.
The Wallawwa is conveniently located just 15-minutes’ drive from Colombo International Airport yet its lush setting is extremely tranquil, tucked into a quiet corner of Negombo’s rural hinterland. It takes just 30-minutes to reach Colombo and beach-blessed Negombo, a Catholic settlement famous for its fishing trade, its expansive lake and network of old Dutch canals.
This eighteen bedrooms and suites gracefully blend the character of an 18th century manor house with bold contemporary additions. Super soft linen dresses four-poster beds positioned to gaze into the gardens, and little details such as vintage phones and bold prints infuse rooms with a retro-contemporary vibe.
Relax in peace and privacy in one of the chicly styled Wallawwa Bedrooms or choose a more spacious Garden Suite for their large bathrooms and open terraces beside lush border-fringed lawns. Families can take advantage of our interconnecting bedrooms and suites, and the ultimate extravagance is the two-bedroom Mountbatten Suite with private plunge pool.
